To quote: Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia just released an [Register or Login to view links] for the PlayStation Vita TV, answering a lot of common, and some not so common questions about the upcoming hardware.

Of course the FAQ is fully in Japanese, as the PS Vita still doesn’t have a western release date, but since many are hungry for more information on the lovely little device that Sony is so cruelly keeping away from our greedy western hands, I included a full translation below.

Q: Do I need the PlayStation Vita to play with the PlayStation Vita TV?

A: You don’t need the PlayStation Vita to play with the PlayStation Vita TV, however there are a few things you do need.

  • Monitor or TV – HDMI Input required.

Backgammon Blitz is Coming to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita This Winter

37w ago - The Fyzz Facility Head of Mobile Manager Robert Karp confirmed today that Backgammon Blitz is coming to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita this Winter.

Below are the details, to quote: Hi! I'm Rob Karp. You may remember me from my role as producer at XDev Studio, where I worked on a number of Sony's first-party games over the years.

Today I want to tell you about my latest venture, which is coming to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita this winter. It's called Backgammon Blitz, and it's a game I'm pumped for.

Backgammon has been played for centuries by gamers young, old, and ancient. It appears to be a simple game about getting your checkers around the board before your opponent, but has immense layers of depth and strategy to it.

I'm just the messenger, of course. The talented folks behind this lovely little title are VooFoo Studios. Having made a name for themselves with Hustle Kings and Pure Chess, Backgammon feels like a step onwards and upwards for the studio, taking all of their strengths (gorgeous art design, a subtle but stylish approach to UI) and none of their weaknesses (cake night every Friday) into the next generation of platforms.

The team are so keen to whet your appetite for the world of backgammon that they're offering a trial version of the game that'll teach you the...
 

Video: Ys: Memories of Celceta Coming to PS Vita on November 26th

37w ago - XSeed Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz posted up a video today announcing that Ys: Memories of Celceta is coming to PS Vita on November 26th, 2013.

To quote: It's Thanksgiving weekend. Your whole family is in a tryptophan-induced coma from eating too much turkey. But you? You ate nothing but pumpkin pie, so you're still wide awake.

Fortunately, you've got your trusty Vita on hand, along with a copy of the Ys: Memories of Celceta Silver Anniversary Edition, which launches on November 26th. So while your in-laws all dream of sugarplums and dandelions, you'll be off exploring the Great Forest and saving the world from evil yet again.

The latest installment in Nihon Falcom's 25 year-old RPG franchise, Ys: Memories of Celceta, is a complete reimagining of the series' legendary fourth installment. To make a long story short(ish), Ys IV is a game that's been published in Japan three times previously - and all were completely different games that were developed independently by different companies.

Despite each one introducing and greatly expounding upon some of the franchise's most pivotal lore, Falcom never actually created their own version of the game... until now.

And in keeping with tradition, this is no mere remake. The story is brand new, and the land...
