Video: Hands On at Gamescom 2012: Zen Pinball 2 on PS Vita

50°
106w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video today going hands on with Zen Pinball 2 for PS Vita at Gamescom 2012.

To quote: If you're a regular PlayStation Blogcast listener, you're probably sick to death of hearing about how much we've been playing and enjoying The Pinball Arcade on PS3 and PS Vita.

Farsight's pinball simulator faithfully recreates the experience of playing some of pinball's greatest tables, many of which are quite difficult to find in the real world.

Zen Studios has taken a different tack since debuting on PS3 (via PSN) in 2009 - the tables featured in Zen Pinball don't exist in some decrepit arcade or collector's garage. These fanciful pinball experiences don't - and simply couldn't - exist in real life.

Now Zen is upgrading the "platform" for these tables - meaning the physics engine, visuals, and social media experience - with Zen Pinball 2, coming to both PS3 and PS Vita for free next month.





I was lucky enough to be sharing a flight out to Cologne for gamescom with someone from the Zen PR team, who handed me a PS Vita loaded with a nearly complete version of the game.

With The Pinball Arcade fresh in my mind, I slipped back into...
 

Sony Details The Monsters & Magic of Soul Sacrifice on PS Vita

100°
106w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa has shared details today from Gamescom 2012 on the monsters and magic of Soul Sacrifice for the PS Vita handheld console.

To quote: It's been a while since our last Soul Sacrifice blog post, so with Gamescom taking place this week I thought I'd take a moment to share some new game details.

In our debut post, we talked about the reality-blended experience and the concept of sacrificing in Soul Sacrifice on PS Vita. Now, I'm going to provide a deeper insight into the game.

In the world of Soul Sacrifice, monsters are what have become of humans who succumbed to darkness, using magic according to their desire. The mission of a sorcerer is to exterminate these monsters.

Now, you may be wondering what sort of monsters you will come across and how they succumbed to this fate. Let's take a look at the back story of one of these monsters - "Griffon."

Griffon

He was a noble. His lands were vast, and he lived in opulence, supported by heavy taxes exacted from those who lived in his dominion. One day, he was presented with an offering from the people - a golden statue of a figure combining beast, bird, and man.

His heart was swept away by the figure, and he felt an unnatural adoration for it. The power of the...

Video: GamesCom 2012 Trailer for Killzone: Mercenary on PS Vita

50°
107w ago - Guerrilla Games Managing Director Hermen Hulst has shared a new video trailer today at GamesCom 2012 for Killzone: Mercenary on the PS Vita handheld console!

To quote: Today we're really excited to present the first official gameplay trailer for Killzone: Mercenary at Gamescom.

Designed specifically for the PlayStation Vita platform, Killzone: Mercenary is a first-person shooter that makes full use of the device's graphical and input capabilities.

It was built on the same powerful engine as Killzone 3, and it enhances the familiar twin-stick FPS control scheme with touch pad functionality for interesting new gameplay possibilities.

With Killzone: Mercenary, we want to offer PlayStation Vita owners a fresh perspective on the brutal conflict between ISA and Helghast - literally.

For the first time in a Killzone campaign, you'll be fighting alongside Helghast forces as well as ISA specialists, carrying out missions that the regular soldiers just won't - or can't.

As a mercenary, you're free to decide which tactics and loadouts you'll use to fulfill your contract; your employers will reward you with state-of-the-art weaponry and cold, hard cash as long as you get the job done. But what is the price of that freedom - and will you discover it before...
 

PlayStation Plus Hits PS Vita, Online Game Save Storage Upgraded

50°
107w ago - Sony PlayStation Network Director of Marketing Brandon Stander has announced today that PS Plus is coming to PS Vita alongside news that the Online Game Save Storage is being upgraded!

To quote: Since its inception, PlayStation Plus has delivered a strong value to PlayStation gamers. We've been keeping our ears to the ground and asking Plus members "What would you like to see added to PlayStation Plus?"

Today, I'm happy to share the news that was announced at Gamescom: PlayStation Plus is coming to PS Vita this year, and Online Game Saves are getting a giant upgrade in September.

We will also deliver PlayStation Plus, which is currently available for PS3 users, to PS Vita users this year. By purchasing a membership to PlayStation Plus, PS Vita users will be able to enjoy various services which will become available exclusively for members.

Additionally, we're upgrading Online Game Save Storage. Previously, Online Game Saves offered up to 150MB of game save data storage in the cloud for PlayStation 3. With this update, Plus members will get to store up to 1GB of game save data. This means you'll never have to worry about running out of space for your game save files!

We love hearing feedback from the community, so please share your thoughts with us in the comments...
