94w ago - Today Sony Associate Product Manager Ken Chan has announced that the Uncharted: Golden Abyss Treasure Map DLC Pack is slated to arrive this Wednesday for PlayStation Vita fans.
To quote: There are literally hundreds of treasures and artifacts in UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss that help tell the backstories of the game's locations and characters, and all are tied to Trophies.
To provide some extra incentive to explore every nook and cranny in the game, we added hidden paths throughout every level – finding everything will be a challenge!
But we also decided to create Treasure Maps for those who want all the game's Trophies but who aren't keen on exploration, or just want a hint now and then.
Since UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss is a portable game, it's not always easy to hop online and look up an FAQ. For that reason, we decided to offer DLC that integrates the Treasure Maps directly into Drake's Journal.
When you buy and install the maps, a new Treasure Map Icon appears on the Chapter page for each level. Tap the icon to bring up the map.
You'll be greeted with a full-screen image of the level showing all of its major landmarks and the locations of rubbings, photos, artifacts, treasures and Mysteries. And in case you were wondering, there are 34 maps...

To quote: Hello PlayStation Nation - I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself: My name is Guy Longworth and I am the new Senior Vice President of PlayStation Brand Marketing.
As you can imagine, the teams here at PlayStation have been hard at work gearing up for one of PlayStation's most exciting product launches ever: PS Vita! I speak for the entire team when I say that we can't wait to get PS Vita into your hands.

95w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America Product Marketing Specialist Derek Osgood has announced today that Resistance: Burning Skies - The Chimera is set to infect PS Vita this coming May.
To quote: In case you missed our PS Vita video livechat today, PlayStation's John Koller revealed an official release date for Resistance: Burning Skies.
The Chimera will invade PS Vita on May 29, 2012, bringing you the world's first portable dual-analog FPS.
Resistance has always boasted iconic visual design, and today we can reveal the Burning Skies box art – a freshly slain Hybrid lying on the streets of New York City with the protagonist's fire axe resting in the rubble.
We like to think it recalls some of the eerie essence of the classic Resistance: Fall of Man box art, but we'd love to hear what you think!
Resistance: Burning Skies pulls you into an entirely new dimension of the Resistance universe. Set in a tale of survival during the August 1951 Chimeran invasion of the East Coast, you take control of Tom Riley, an everyday firefighter from New Jersey who is thrown headfirst into the teeth of the Chimeran war machine, forcing him to redefine his notions of duty and heroism.
As most of you know, this is going to be the first ever dual-analog FPS game on...
95w ago - Creative Director John Garvin of Sony's Bend Studio has shared a video today spotlighting Uncharted: Golden Abyss on PS Vita opening The Black Market below.
To quote: As we get closer and closer to the European launch of the PS VITA and Uncharted: Golden Abyss, myself and all the guys at Bend Studio are getting pretty amped.
For us it's been a long time in the making, from early brainstorming sessions on the PS VITA itself beginning in 2008, through production, which wrapped up at the end of 2011. When given the opportunity to create a launch title for Sony's new next-gen handheld, we jumped at the chance. When asked what game we'd like to make, we said Uncharted! Here's why.
From the beginning, our goal was to create a great Uncharted game, to give players, including ourselves, more of what they love, but with the PS VITA's unique spin.
The cinematic experience, the gunplay and weapons, the compelling story and characters, the mystery and treasure hunting based on real history, the puzzles, the platforming, and of course, the colourful and detailed imagery... it's all there. But it's on a gorgeous five inch screen that you can take with you.
