OlliOlli: How to Score Big in PlayStation Vita's New Skate 'em Up

50°
31w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill reveals to PS Vita fans today how to score big in PlayStation Vita's new skate 'em up title OlliOlli below!

To quote: OlliOlli is out now on PS Vita, and it's getting praise from reviewers left and right.

Newcomers might be put off by its simple, yet highly skill-based trick and landing system, but before long the urge to nail longer (And riskier!) combos will keep you glued to your Vita for hours on end.

I've spent about a week with OlliOlli, during which I've picked up a few tricks for maximizing one's scoring potential on any given stage. This list is by no means comprehensive - these are just notes I've taken over the course of the last week. If I've missed anything, or if you've got your own tips, leave 'em in the comments! Oh, and good luck on that Daily Grind.





Timing is everything

From the moment you first boot up OlliOlli, you need to know that timing your landings and grinds properly is integral to not only getting chart-topping scores, but even finishing stages and completing goals.

A perfect grind will actually give you a small boost in speed, which you'll need in a few later stages to clear otherwise impossible...
 

Video: PS Vita Dual Firmware Boot Proof-of-Concept Demo Arrives

400°
31w ago - Today Sony PlayStation Vita hacker Katsu released a VPS Vita Dual Firmware Boot Proof-of-Concept demo video with details below.

To quote: It didn’t take long for Yifan Lu’s investigations to become useful for other hardware hackers! Our community member katsu, guided by Yifan’s precise description of the Vita’s NAND pinouts, was able to hack his PS Vita in order to boot from a previous firmware, technically performing something very similar to a downgrade. Check the video below, it’s cool and full of “electronicsporn”, like your favorite cyberpunk movie.

What katsu did was dump his firmware 2.12 (on the NAND), probably using Yifan Lu’s technique. He then copied that Firmware dump to an SD card. In the meantime, he upgraded the PS Vita to firmware 3.01. On the video, you see him inserting his SD card in a reader connected to the Vita. The Vita then reads the content of the SD card (the firmware 2.12 he dumped earlier) instead of its own 3.01 NAND.

What the hell does all of that mean? First of all, that Yifan Lu’s little experiment in the hardware world is proving successful, by providing inspiration and documentation for other talented hardware modders.

Secondly, that downgrading a PS Vita is a possibility under certain...
 

Delve Into the Dysfunctional World of Danganronpa on PS Vita

31w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator David Alonzo invites PlayStation 3 fans to delve into the dysfunctional world of Danganronpa on PS Vita.

To quote: *BRRIIINNNGGG* Attention students, class is now in session. Visiting professor David from Prinny University here (AKA NIS America) to give you a little lesson on Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, which launches on February 11th in North America exclusively for PlayStation Vita.

Trigger Happy Havoc is a revamped edition of the very first Danganronpa that appeared on PSPs in Japan in 2010, and now includes updated graphics, touchscreen functionality, and a new game mode. Now get your thinking hats on, because murder's afoot, and you're going to need more than a #2 pencil to survive the tests this high school's got in store for you.

Imagine attending the most elite high school in the country, Hope's Peak Academy, where only the best students get their education. Your classmates include the Ultimate Swimming Pro, the Ultimate Fashionista, and the Ultimate Baseball Star. And then there's our main character, Makoto Naegi, who's not much of an Ultimate anything.

It's hard enough trying to find your niche in a regular high school, but when it's revealed that the students have been locked in by the headmaster of this school - a psychotic...
