Frobisher Says! for PS Vita Available to Everyone on PSN for Free

300°
102w ago - Sony European Product Manager Mayumi Donovan has announced today that Frobisher Says for PS Vita is now available to everyone on PSN for free!

To quote: Anyone that has received a PSN message informing them that a friend of theirs has poked an otter with a stick will be delighted to hear that Frobisher Says! is now available to all PS Vita owners for free.

If you don't know what Frobisher Says! Is all about, here's an introduction from developer Ricky Haggett from Honeyslug:

Frobisher Says is a surreal party game, where players must obey the whims of a strange little man called Frobisher, who is terribly spoilt and entirely used to getting his own way.

He's terribly demanding and a bit frightening if crossed, but his orders are often quite whimsical - he might insist on players doing things like "poke an otter with a stick", "deliver my pudding on a toy train", or "smile at some ladies (but not at the badgers!)".

He might even ask them to prise open all the clams in his spaghetti marinara - despite the fact that he doesn't even like clams.

The game showcases all of the features of the Vita - from front and rear touch, to motion, camera, and face-detection, as well as traditional controls....

Resistance: Burning Skies Survival Mode Unveiled for PS Vita

50°
103w ago - Today Sony Senior Producer Frank Simon has unveiled the Survival Mode in Resistance: Burning Skies for PlayStation Vita.

To quote: Over the last couple of weeks we've been talking a lot about the highly anticipated multiplayer mode for Resistance: Burning Skies for PS Vita.

Supporting up to eight players over WiFi with a robust arsenal of powerful weapons and the precision and accuracy that come with dual-analog controls, Resistance: Burning Skies is sure to be the best FPS multiplayer experience available on a handheld.

We've already lifted the lid on the first two modes, Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch, and just last week at an event in San Francisco we revealed the title's last multiplayer mode, Survival Mode, an intense power struggle between humans and the gruesome Chimera.

Survival mode pits the players against each other in a race to the finish where only the strong survive. Here's how it works: in a battle of humans vs. Chimera, six players start as humans and two as Chimera.

As the Chimera players make a kils, their human victims are resurrected as Chimera so the balance slowly shifts. As the battle continues, the winner is the human player who lasts the longest in a match. We keep a timer running as you play so you can track your progress.
