To quote: WipEout 2048 for the PlayStation Vita is available at retail stores and on the PlayStation Store starting today, February 15th.

And to help celebrate the launch we have a brand new trailer - check it out below!

I also wanted to tell you a little about the ships that you're going to get to play in the new game. Choosing the right ship couldn't be more important. Take the wrong ship to the track, and you're going to struggle. So here's some insider information to help you make those all-important ship choices as you get started with Wipeout 2048.

Speed Ships are the F1 cars of anti-gravity racing. They're sleek, delta-winged craft with minimal liveries. To look at, they're the closest to the original, classic dart-shaped Wipeout ships. These ships are all about going fast, but to go fast, they need to be light.

To shed weight, Speed Ships sacrifice bulkier components such as the extra defensive and offensive systems. Racing aside, Speed Ships are great for Time Trials and Speed laps.

Next up are our Agility Ships, and if Speed Ships are F1 cars, then Agility Ships are rally cars. These things are heavily liveried and...

Hey everyone, It's a special PS Vita early launch week / Valentine's Day edition of the PlayStation Store Update!

115w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has outlined how to download PSP titles to PS Vita today for those curious, with details below as follows:

PS Vita will begin making its way into gamers' hands in just a few short days! Day one Vita owners will have many, many games to choose from, with 25 titles announced for launch on February 22nd.

Actually, make that 26 – Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus is now a confirmed launch title as well.

If you're being thorough, however, that number is off by a bit... like by 90%. Hundreds of classic PSP titles and minis will also be available to play on PS Vita on day one via the PlayStation Store. Even better, if you've already downloaded a compatible PSP title, you can download it directly onto your PS Vita at no extra cost (please note that some limitations do apply).

There are a couple of ways to get these PSP games onto your PS Vita:

Purchase PSP games from PS Vita's PlayStation Store and download via WiFi directly to your system. If you've already purchased a game via PSN from the list below, you can redownload it from the Download List.

If you've already got one of these games sitting on your PS3 XMB (or have purchased from the PS3's PlayStation Store), you can connect your PS Vita to the PS3 via the included...
