To quote: Join a futuristic online open-world shooter where thousands of players scour a transformed Earth competing for alien technology. Create a unique character and level up with diverse customization options.
Hunt alone or with others as you improve your skills and unlock powerful modern and alien weapons that will help you survive the massive battles that await in this constantly evolving online world.
Immerse yourself in the world of Defiance as the game impacts, and is impacted by, the Defiance TV series on this week's The Drop.
Defiance (Also on PSN) - The visionary open-world shooter MMOG Defiance serves as a companion to the tandem television show on Syfy. In an entertainment first, the game and show will influence and depend on each other, and even feature some players' characters on the TV shows as extras.
Set on a future Earth, Defiance introduces players and viewers to a world where humans and aliens live together on a planet transformed by decades of conflict.
The game combines the intense action of a 'AAA' console shooter, with the persistence, scale, and customization of an MMO, while its TV counterpart...
37w ago - Sony Associate Project Manager Nick Accordino has announced that Table Mini Golf is putting to PS Vita on April 9, 2013.
Below are the details, to quote: It's my pleasure to introduce you to a brand new game in the AR Play family of PlayStation Vita titles - Table Mini Golf (no, not table putt-putt - sorry Mid-west)!
Like the previous games in the AR Play series, Table Mini Golf is a bite-sized game with monster-sized scope - you'll use the AR Play cards to construct dozens of mini-golf courses across most flat surfaces of your choosing, and then pick one of three stylish characters to show off your putting skills in style.
Courses are split into one of two lively themes - Horror and Pirate - and come in both Rookie and Pro difficulties to satisfy those looking for a lighthearted and/or challenging good time.
These courses can be mixed and matched across two distinct modes, Free Play and Elimination, in which up to four players (or AI partners) can compete to see whose putting skills are above and below par. (See what I did there?)
Fear not, Table Mini Golf is not your standard game of nine holes - the good folks at Four Door Lemon have wedged in plenty of challenges, Trophies and extra goodies to keep you playing. Winning matches and satisfying certain...
37w ago - 505 Games Producer David Welch has confirmed today that indie adventure Terraria is coming to PlayStation Vita.
To quote: Your voices have been heard, and it's my great pleasure to announce that after much discussion the teams at 505 Games, Engine Software, and Re-Logic have decided to continue our exciting journey together and bring Terraria to PS Vita!
That's right, folks - Terraria will be available to play anytime, anywhere. It's almost like we never sleep!
Ever since we announced that Terraria was coming to PS3, we've been overwhelmed by requests for a Vita version. We're tremendous fans of the PS Vita system, and with its touch controls, dual analog sticks, gorgeous display, and robust online features, it seemed like a natural fit. PS Vita is a great platform for digital games in particular, and we couldn't be more excited to be a part of it.
For those who haven't heard of Terraria, it's a sandbox adventure in the style of our favorite "Metroidvania" games - an indie darling on PC that has gathered an impassioned community and sold over two million copies.
As a sandbox game, it has all the endless possibilities you've come to expect - you can build with dozens of blocks and craft hundreds of items - yet it's unique in how easy it is to pick up...

37w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden shared a new video today showcasing Velocity Ultra on PlayStation Vita below.
To quote: Hey folks! I'm here to share all the juicy details about Velocity Ultra on PS Vita.
Velocity on minis was critically celebrated (lots of 9/10 review scores), but many people suggested improvements to the game to make it a 'must buy'.
So we began scouring the internet for every Velocity write up we could find; professional and hobbyist, as well as YouTube comments and forum threads around the world. We took all the feedback into account, and addressed all of the major requests (as well as some of the minor).
Many people thought Velocity was a bargain on minis because of the sheer amount of content we managed to squeeze into it, and now Sony has made it official by classifying the game as 'Large' when allocating trophies for the new release - which means Velocity Ultra has lots of trophies, including a Platinum! You're gonna to have to work for that platinum.
Velocity Ultra features global and friend online leaderboards, as well as something called the Elite Lounge, which is a bit like an exclusive club for awesome players. To find out more about the Elite Lounge,...
