12w ago - Sony Director of Product Planning & Platform Software Innovation Don Mesa has confirmed some new PS Vita applications are incoming this Spring, including Friend Network and Imaginstruments.
To quote: We've had a slew of exceptional new applications hit PS Vita recently, like the otherworldly simulator Ecolibrium, Wake-up Club, and plenty of others. Today, we wanted to unveil two great new applications you'll soon be enjoying on PS Vita.
Friend Network, already a huge hit in Japan and other territories in Asia, is a unique social application for PS Vita that allows you to interact with friends and meet new people in a whole new way.
Guided by PlayStation mascot mainstay Toro, the app lets PS Vita owners visualize their network of friends and gaming buddies through the use of avatars in a colorful environment, and through growing their friends list, players can grow their own unique town space within Friend Network.
With the ultimate goal of reaching 100 friends within Friend Network, lobbies are available where players can meet new friends and exchange virtual "business cards." These cards contain information that players can use to get to know others within Friend Network.
Additionally, Friend Network comes fully integrated with your favorite social networks....

16w ago - Sega of America Associate Brand Manager Aaron Webber has shared a video confirming that Bayonetta for PS3 bewitches PlayStation Network today.
Below are the details, to quote: It's been a good month for Platinum Games and SEGA titles.
Just a few weeks ago saw the release of Anarchy Reigns on PS3; later today will mark the digital release of one of the finest action games ever created. Bayonetta is coming to PSN!
If you have yet to try this iconic action game from the mind of director Hideki Kamiya, your time has come as Bayonetta is debuting at $19.99. Of course, Bayonetta truly shines when you see it in action.
So here's a trip back to the year 2010, when a certain Launch Trailer was just arriving...
Bayonetta is the story of the last remaining member of an ancient clan called the Umbra Witches, a group that has kept the balance between light, dark, and chaos for hundreds of years. Bayonetta awakens after 500 years of sleep to find herself in a world she no longer recognizes, with no clues to her past or how she got where she is.
Her awakening sparks a chain of events that soon reaches cataclysmic proportions....
17w ago - EXOR Studios Co-founder Pawel Lekki has shared a video announcing that Zombie Driver HD crashes into PlayStation Network today!
To quote: This is Pawel Lekki - co-founder of EXOR Studios. I'm very happy to finally be able to tell you that Zombie Driver HD is coming out on the PlayStation Network in Europe today, priced at £7.99/€9.99.
Some of you may remember that I announced the game to be "coming soon" quite a while ago and I'd like to assure you that we spent all that extra time on making sure that the PlayStation 3 version is polished in every detail.
It took us a lot longer to finish the game than we originally expected, but in return we were able to add a lot more content. Check out the trailer below to see what I'm talking about:
Zombie Driver HD on the PS3 is the first console version of the game rendered in native 1920x1080 resolution with no compromise. We wanted to make sure that the game looks really good in Full HD and a simple "up-scale" of our 2D art was out of the question.
17w ago - Double Fine Productions Senior Designer JP LeBreton has shared a video today inviting fans to venture into The Cave, which is out today on PlayStation Network!
To quote: Greetings! The team here at Double Fine Productions is pleased to announce that The Cave, our latest game led by legendary adventure game designer Ron Gilbert, comes out today on PSN.
In The Cave, you'll choose three characters - from a possible seven - to descend into the depths of an ancient and mysterious cave, each of them in search of something they desire above all else.
This is no ordinary ancient and mysterious cave, however: The Cave happens to be alive, watching their every move, narrating their stories, doling out wisdom and mockery in equal measure. What could his true motive possibly be? He's not telling. "Mysterious" just means "not telling".
Depending on which characters you choose, you'll puzzle your way through a Victorian mansion, a museum from the far future, a desert island, a nuclear missile silo, and much more... all buried deep within The Cave. See? We're being mysterious too!
We've designed the puzzles such that one player can solve them...
