Sony Unveils Nine PlayStation Vita Tips and Tricks for Gamers

650°
139w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has unveiled nine tips and tricks for next-generation handheld gamers below today!

To quote: If you've picked up PS Vita then you've probably been too busy plowing through the dense launch line-up to have spent much time browsing the Settings menu.

Luckily, you don't need to - we've spent plenty of time with PlayStation's new crown jewel and we've put together a few favorite tips and tricks we wanted to share. Of course, this is just a start: We want your tips, too!

If you've discovered any favorite PS Vita functions, please share them in the comments for all to enjoy this weekend.

1. Order in the court! By now, you've probably figured out how to move your game and app bubbles around the Home Menu by pressing and holding one using the front touchscreen, enabling you to drag it around into different frame.

You can even change the background color or image by tapping the theme icon in the bottom right of each frame. Get creative and design your own background images (which you can transfer to your PS Vita via PS3) like James Gallagher from the EU PlayStation Blog did here.

2. Let there be light. You can adjust your PS Vita's OLED screen brightness mid-game without the hassle of jumping...
 

Starhawk Beta Open to US PSN Users Today & EU Tomorrow, Tips

200°
139w ago - Sony Senior Producer Harvard Bonin has announced that the Starhawk PS3 Beta officially opens to US PSN users today and Europeans tomorrow, with some PlayStation 3 tips available below!

To quote: We're happy to announce (remind) everyone that the Starhawk Multiplayer Beta is open to ALL COMERS today, Tuesday, February 21st only on the PlayStation Network!

You don't have to "like" us on Facebook, you don't have to "accept a special offer" and you don't have to sign up for any service (that is, except for the PlayStation Network free service)! Everyone is welcome to join! Just check the PlayStation Store and prepare yourself for a good time!

In the coming weeks we'll be upgrading the Beta a ton. You can expect a new map, new vehicles, new weapons, 32-player max matches and more. Remember, this is still a beta, not a demo. We are actively finding and fixing problems – and we need your feedback!

The Starhawk Beta will not last forever. When we're done testing it will go "bye-bye"... and so I wrote a poem to illustrate my point...

The Starhawk Serenade

If you don't try Starhawk you'll be sad,
While your friends are having fun you'll be mad,
It's such an easy download,
Your head may explode!

158w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli has shared another video in the Uncharted 3 PS3 multiplayer Advanced Tips series alongside details on new maps available today.

To quote: We are hitting the start of week three for the Subway Taste For Adventure UNCHARTED 3 multiplayer experience and we're noticing that some of you are getting pretty good.

But the best player isn't the best for long. We think it's a good time to dive into some of the more advanced multiplayer gameplay mechanics and strategies to help you step up your game.

Sure, you can lob a grenade out there, but have you mastered the aim throw yet? How many BBQ medals have you achieved? Did you know that the Idol can be used as a melee weapon?

Game Designer Robert Cogburn sat down with the PlayStation.Blog to drop some high-level knowledge regarding UNCHARTED 3's multiplayer experience. Check out our new video above for some lessons!





Starting today, we're adding a revamped map - Facility - to the experience so you can practice your new skills on this fresh level. If you were lucky enough to attend [Register or Login to view links], you may have already gotten a taste of this map and...
 

Call of Duty: Black Ops Annihilation DLC Hits PSN, Domination Tips

50°
169w ago - Activision Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops Annihilation PS3 DLC is now live on PSN and shared some domination tips for fans below.

To quote: Annihilation - the third pack of DLC maps for Call of Duty: Black Ops - comes to the PlayStation 3.

The DLC offers four new multiplayer arenas and a new jungle-based Zombies survival experience in Shangri-Li.

In celebration of the big release, developer [Register or Login to view links] has deemed that the double XP will flow all weekend long. I'll be hosting a [Register or Login to view links] this Friday night to soak some of that up myself, and my favorite game type is Domination.

Truth be told, I'm not that good a shot, so objective-based modes like this one let me help the team and keep leveing up even if I'm nowhere near the top of the K/D ratios.

In that spirit, I wanted to offer some tips for the four new maps. I don't know if we'll meet up on the same team or on opposite sides of a red dot sight, but I'm willing to take that risk in the name of having fun...

Drive In

I like this map a lot. Snipers perched in the projection room and in the screen will no doubt trade...
 

Video: ModNation Racers PS Vita: Modding with Your Fingertips

100°
175w ago - Team RamRod's Brandon Akiaten has posted up a video today spotlighting modding in ModNation Racers for Sony's upcoming PS Vita handheld console.

To quote: As most of you heard at the Sony Press Conference kicking off E3, we are proudly bringing the ModNation franchise to the much anticipated PlayStation Vita. It was a great opportunity to share with you all some of the things our team has in store.

For starters, the ModNation Racers PS3 Community has created in just over a year's time over 2 million Mods, Karts and Tracks. All of which will be available to anyone who purchases ModNation Racers (Working Title) for PS Vita on day one.

That means by using the online capabilities and processing power of the PS Vita, the ModNation team has made it possible for users to download any PS3 user generated creation and bring it with them on the go.

The team has also made huge strides in creating a ground up effort to make a ModNation title that takes full advantage of the PlayStation Vita features. As mentioned in the Press Conference, this title is not a port of the PSP or PS3.

On the creation side, we showed that in a matter of seconds how fast and easy it is to create a track by drawing it with your finger.

The front touch capability of the...
