35w ago - Gearbox Software Product Manager Adam Fletcher announced today at Gamescom 2013 that Borderlands 2 is coming to PlayStation Vita.

Below are the details, as follows: Hello travelers! The dream finally becomes a reality, as PlayStation, Gearbox Software and 2K announces today at Gamescom that the addictive first person shooter-looter mayhem of Borderlands 2 will be coming to PS Vita.

I watched as Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software, stood on stage at the Rezzed show in the UK a year ago and told fans that, with PlayStation's support, he'd love to see Borderlands 2 on PS Vita. For the last year, Gearbox Software, 2K, and PlayStation have been inundated with emails, tweets, forum posts and more from passionate gamers across the world pleading for a PS Vita version of Borderlands 2.

You spoke, we listened, and with the wonderful collaboration between 2K, PlayStation and the team at Iron Galaxy Studios - makers of indie fighting game Divekick - we can finally make Borderlands 2 on PS Vita a reality!

For those of you new to the critically acclaimed shooting-and-looting mayhem of Borderlands 2, which won more than 55 editorial awards in 2012, you'll be picking from four uniquely-skilled Vault Hunters - Axton the Commando, Maya the Siren, Salvador the Gunzerker...

As you may have seen during the gamescom PlayStation press conference, we've confirmed tonight that Football Manager is coming to PS Vita! Or, to be exact, Football Manager Classic is coming to PS Vita.

So what is Football Manager Classic?

Well, it's a mode that was added into last year's PC and Mac version of Football Manager as a quicker way to play the full Football Manager experience.

It has all you'd expect from FM - our huge database of players researched by a team of over 1,500 scouts around the world, a 3D match engine showing the action, a full tactics module, realistic transfers, AI that makes both players and managers act as you'd expect them to in the...
 

Fez Set to Melt Minds on PS4, PlayStation Vita and PS3 Platforms

35w ago - Polytron Producer Marie-Christine Bourdua announced today that Fez is set to melt minds on PS4, PlayStation Vita and PS3 platforms!

To quote: Hi there! My name is Marie-Christine Bourdua, producer at Polytron, and I'm here today to announce that Fez is coming soon to PS Vita, PS3 and PS4. Making Fez happen has been such an incredible journey, and we are truly thrilled to see our game come to PlayStation platforms.

Fez development started six and a half years ago with Phil Fish's ideas and Renaud Bedard's programming skills. The Montreal-based studio was (and still is) very small, but very ambitious.

Only 100 days into development, we submitted a Fez prototype to the 2008 Independent Games Festival, and were awarded the Visual Arts award, which was a huge public awareness and morale boost. But we still had a whole game to make!

We failed to meet a million deadlines and had to overcome financial obstacles, but met amazing collaborators along the way, like the game's composer, Rich Vreeland (aka Disasterpeace), and outstanding pixel artist Paul Robertson.

The game was taking shape, had a unique atmosphere and aura of mystery that we knew would find fans. As we were wrapping up development, James Swirsky and Lisanne Pajot (makers of the Sundance-nominated...

Video: Velocity Sequel Announced for PS4 / PlayStation 4 & PS Vita

35w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden announced that a Velocity sequel dubbed Velocity 2X is coming for PS4 / PlayStation 4 and PS Vita today.

To quote: A Leap Beyond

Hi everyone, we are so excited and proud to announce Velocity 2X; the highly requested sequel to Velocity Ultra!

Story Teaser





Gameplay Teaser (Pre-Alpha Footage)

This video shows pre-alpha gameplay footage, which means it's nowhere near what we're aiming for visually. In fact, our technical director Hussain Sheikh was the lead visual effects programmer on Split/Second, so you can trust that he and the art team won't stop until Velocity 2X looks spectacular.





What the dock?!

When PlayStation asked if we'd like Velocity 2X announced during its Gamescom press conference, we couldn't pass up the opportunity. But the game just isn't ready for a full reveal yet, so we've only let you glimpse the platforming gameplay.

You can rest assured that the game features great mechanics that bridge the two formats perfectly; this isn't just...
