112w ago - International Software Development Senior Producer Tsubasa Inaba has announced today that the incoming Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational update enhances and adds multiplayer modes with details below!

To quote: Calling all golf fans! Update 1.04 for Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational on PlayStation Vita goes live this evening! Here's what to expect the next time you hit the fairways:

Invite friends to play in private tournaments
Whereas before you could only play in Real Mode tournaments that were open to all, now you can create private tournaments for you and up to seven friends, as well as private rooms in the online lobby space.

Out on the course, you'll be able to see your opponent's ball after each shot, and between holes you can also use text chat to communicate with your friends, on the scorecard screen.

Stroke Mode (Head-to-Head)

Previously Ad-Hoc only. A head-to-head competition for two players, where the golfer with the best results at the end of a round wins. You'll be able to chat with and heckle your opponent between holes.

Match Mode (Head-to-Head)

Video: Introducing Snapshot, Coming to PS Vita and PS3 This Fall

50°
120w ago - Retro Affect Software Neurosurgeon David Carrigg has officially announced today that Snapshot is coming to PS Vita and PS3 this Fall alongside a video introducing the video game posted below.

To quote: I'm proud to announce that Snapshot, our 2D puzzle platformer, is coming to PS Vita and PS3 (with cross-platform saves) this fall.

In Snapshot, you control a robot named Pic. Pic carries a high-tech camera that can "capture" and remove objects and parts of the environment. You can then paste the picture back into the world causing all the objects to come tumbling back out. If you're looking for a new puzzle game with a twist, keep reading!

The game begins with Pic powering on for the first time in a dusty abandoned laboratory. Uncertain about his purpose and why he was built, he wanders into the forest that surrounds the laboratory.

This is where you'll first start to use your camera to take photographs of objects. The first chapter of the game will hit you with a series of puzzles involving moving objects around within the levels, and it's easier than you think.

If you want to reposition a box, simply snap a photo to capture it, then paste the picture back into the world and watch the box fall back out of it.

149w ago - Today The Street (linked above) has interviewed Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer, who states that PS3 hackers have not held them back despite numerous PlayStation Network disruptions over the last year.

He believes that they were the victim of a sophisticated vendetta orchestrated by elements within the hacking community, stating it was a revenge attack, due to them going after a PS3 hacker who exploited the PlayStation 3 console. Below is an excerpt from the interview, to quote:

NEW YORK (TheStreet) - Sony (SNE) has bounced back from a wave of hacking attacks on its PlayStation business earlier this year, according to CEO Sir Howard Stringer, who says that digital assaults are an occupational hazard for major firms.

“The press was on us for four days until somebody else got hacked and everyone realized that hacking is a fact of life,” he said, during a briefing event organized by The Wall Street Journal. “We took it on the chin over and over again - the problem that we have is that we were alone out there, so nobody had anything else to write about that month.”

Sony’s security travails certainly grabbed plenty of headlines. In May, the company confirmed that it was the victim of a massive denial-of-service attack, likely timed to coincide...
