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...

35w ago - Telltale Games Community Lead Laura Perusco shared a video today announcing that The Walking Dead on PlayStation Vita is officially out tomorrow!

To quote: Antsy to get your hands on The Walking Dead for PS Vita? The wait is over!

Look out for PS Vita versions of all five episodes of The Walking Dead Season One, PLUS the special 400 Days DLC episode, in the PlayStation Store tomorrow (The bundle will also be available!).

This version is an awesome way to experience The Walking Dead, whether you're dipping your toe into the water for the first time, or looking to catch up on any episodes you might have missed. Even if you've already played through the whole season on PS3, there's an additional set of Trophies for playing the series on PS Vita.

We've even added some special features just for PS Vita: you can play with analog controls and face buttons, or get a little more intimate with the interaction by switching to touchscreen only.





Remember, fans of the series should keep those save files, because Season Two is expected to hit PS Vita later this year as well. Hope you're ready for the portable undead onslaught!
 

Metrico on PS Vita: Infographics and Input Morphing Detailed

50°
35w ago - Digital Dreams Level Designer Roy van de Mortel shared some concept art and details today on both infographics and input morphing in Metrico on PS Vita below.

To quote: It has been a while since we announced Metrico, so we are very excited to finally be able to share some more insights into the development and current state of Metrico.

We have been working very hard the last couple of months to make sure we now have a playable version, so people can experience what Metrico is about for the first time.

We announced Metrico at GDC San Francisco back in March with an announcement teaser, which was well received. But we knew that the next time we showed something to the press and you guys, we obviously would have to show more than the abstract video, aimed at introducing the game.





Metrico is a mysterious world, so we decided to keep it a bit vague with the teaser. We have a lot more to show since last March, so we'd like to take a moment and explain what type of a game Metrico is.

In Metrico the player needs to traverse the game world, which is built from all sorts of infographics, like bar diagrams, pie charts, line graphs, etc. These infographics constantly change based on your actions,...
