4w ago - Following up on the previous announcement, today Sony has released an official PlayStation Vita TV FAQ with many questions answered below.
To quote: Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia just released an extensive FAQ 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.
Wireless Controller DualShock 3.
Internet connection is necessary to use various kinds of content and video services and some games.
4w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford shared details today on the Tearaway Community Site for PlayStation Vita users below.
To quote: Hi everyone! I'm back with the second video in our series, taking a look at Tearaway and the things that we think make it special (the first came out last week).
This new video is all about the paper Tearaway is made from, and the papercraft models that you'll be able to make once the it comes out.
It also details tearaway.me, which will be the community site for the game where all your in-game photos and papercraft plans will be stored and shared from. The site isn't live yet, but it will be soon, so watch that space!
You can pre-order Tearaway now directly from PlayStation.Store, with both the Jukebox and Special Delivery options available, allowing you to choose from a great selection of pre-order bonuses, including a special skin for the rideable pig (and papercaft plan to match), the soundtrack, and even some special Messenger costumes for Sackboy!
