Soul Sacrifice Hits PS Vita April 30th, Pre-order Extras Revealed

50°
76w ago - Sony PlayStation Public Relations Manager Aram Jabbari has revealed today that Soul Sacrifice hits PS Vita this April 30th, alongside the official box art and pre-order extras detailed below!

To quote: Since it was announced for North America, and as new assets and details are rolled out to eager fans worldwide, excitement for Soul Sacrifice has only increased.

No other title for PlayStation Vita combines the same frantic real-time combat, thrilling sense of scale, smartly interwoven cooperative multiplayer, or meaningful character customization... Not to mention the contributions of legends of gaming like designer Keiji Inafune or composer Yasunori Mitsuda and Wataru Hokoyama.

For weeks, fans have asked for more info about the game's North American release, wanting a final date and box art, and details about possible pre-order extras. Finally, those questions can be answered!

Soul Sacrifice for PS Vita launches in stores and via PlayStation Network on April 30th, 2013. As for the box art, it is essentially the same as that which Japanese fans will proudly display on their shelves (or pedestals, if you're a pedestal kind of person):

Fans who pre-order Soul Sacrifice will receive an exclusive pack of in-game content - it will not be sold anywhere else!

Video: Urban Trial Freestyle Racing Soon to Hit PSN and PS Vita

200°
77w ago - Tate Interactive GM Wojtek Bilinski has announced today alongside a video trailer that Urban Trial Freestyle Racing is soon to hit both PSN and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: There are motorcycle arcade style games out there already, and although many are really fun (everybody remembers Elastomania!) most of them lack depth.

So with Urban Trial Freestyle, we decided to add high-quality graphics and a modern social experience to the gameplay to bring this genre to a whole new level.

We wanted Urban Trial Freestyle to provide players with the highest level of competition as possible, so we are including about 100 different leaderboards. Players can compare their best score and best time depending on two different game modes.

For example, in stunt mode, players can compete to be named "Best Stuntman" on every track. There are 20 tracks, and five kinds of stunts to perform on each track - and each one of them has its own leaderboard - all making Urban Trial Freestyle more unique and more competitive!

Arcade games are great for quick competitions so we also gave Time Attack mode a boost by storing the ghost of the best player on PlayStation Network so everyone can challenge him/her (it's possible to choose worldwide best player or best amongst your friends).
 

Start Your Morning With Wake-up Club for PS Vita Next Week

400°
78w ago - Today Sony Director of Product Planning and Platform Software Innovation Don Mesa has officially introduced the Wake Up Club for PS Vita owners.

To quote: Back in April, we unveiled a host of new applications coming to PS Vita, including Wake-up Club, a new interactive way to start your day with other PS Vita owners. Next Tuesday, the application will be available to download for free on the PS Vita PlayStation Store in North America!

Let's face it: getting up in the morning isn't something we usually look forward to, but Wake-up Club adds some social fun into the mix to make getting out of bed more bearable.

In addition to adding alarm clock functionality to PS Vita for the first time, including the ability to personalize your alarm tone and background theme, Wake-up Club matches 12 randomly selected players who set their alarm clock at the same time into a–you guessed it–wake-up club!

Wake Up Club for PS Vita

As soon as your alarm goes off, your avatar will begin bouncing around the PS Vita touchscreen. Tapping your avatar lets other players know you're now awake. Once in the virtual club room, you can see other players' avatars, as well as who's awake and who's still sleeping. Tapping the sleeping players' avatars will "cheer"...
