96w ago - Sega Senior Digital Brand Manager Mai Kawaguchi is here with a Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown tutorial video and PSN launch details below, as follows:

Fighting game fans worldwide have spoken. Since the release last week, we've seen an overwhelming amount of support for Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown.

Today, we are releasing our tutorial video #3 for Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown that we put together while working closely with AM2 (the development team) and VF community members.

We are hoping that these videos will help newcomers pick up VF5's advanced techniques quickly!

Also, just a few weeks ago in LA, we teamed up with fighting game legend Alex Valle and his crews from LevelUp Series to host a Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown Pre-launch party.

We've invited the VF legends, Fuudo and Chibita, from Japan to demonstrate the game and also take on 20 or so challengers. Amazingly, we had people fly in from Australia, Japan, Singapore, Canada and all over the US just to make it to this event and ... we had a blast!





We've put together a short video of our event. If anyone is interested in seeing what the VF community is like, you can watch the video here!

99w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America Associate Product Marketing Manager Derek Osgood has unveiled the Resistance: Burning Skies launch trailer below announcing that the title hits PS Vita today!

To quote: The wait is over! Resistance: Burning Skies hits store shelves and PSN today, ushering in a new era of portable first-person shooters. Dual-analog control isn't the only thing going for Resistance: Burning Skies though.

In addition to the multiplayer features and weapon functionality we've introduced over the last few months, Resistance: Burning Skies brings a new hero into the war between man and the Chimera - and Tom Riley's story is one you won't want to miss. Take a peek at the debut of our Resistance: Burning Skies launch trailer!


This isn't all we have to share with you today though. You'll remember back in April when we talked about Resistance: Burning Skies' multiplayer modes we mentioned that through "near," Resistance: Burning Skies introduces a new social perk which rewards players with XP multipliers that you can carry into multiplayer battle. Today we're going to shed a little more light on exactly what that means.

So, as you play through the multiplayer experience...
 

Video: Mortal Kombat Hits PS Vita Today, Launch Trailer Arrives

103w ago - Mortal Kombat Producer Hector Sanchez has announced alongside posting up the launch trailer that Mortal Kombat officially hits PS Vita today!

To quote: Developing new and inventive missions for the Bonus Challenge Tower was something our talented Design team at Netherrealm Studios jumped at.

It allowed us to not only come up with unique and innovative scenarios that took advantage of the numerous PS Vita features (such as the touchscreen and the accelerometer), but also a long-awaited opportunity to create challenges based around the DLC characters that released after the launch of the PS3 version. Yes, that means Freddy Krueger missions!

With Mortal Kombat finally emerging today on PS Vita game card and via PSN, our designers at NetherRealm Studios wanted to share some of their favorite missions from the all-new Challenge Tower. We hope you guys have just as much fun playing through these missions as we had making them.

112w ago - Fun Bits Interactive Team Lead Chris Millar has unveiled the Escape Plan PS Vita launch trailer video today spotlighting Lil & Laarg greeting the world.

To quote: It's a fantastic day for Fun Bits Interactive and our good friends at SCEA Santa Monica Studio as we celebrate the official launch of PS Vita with a brand-new launch trailer for Escape Plan. Check it out below!

We also want to take this opportunity to thank all the lucky people who grabbed the game last week for the pre-order bundle release on Feb 14th. So far, the response has been fantastic and we really appreciate your support for the game!

Exclusive to the powerful and touch-tastic PS Vita, gamers can interact and experience the irreverent dark humor of Escape Plan with tactile swipes, slaps, pokes and reach-around taps. Part of the fun of Escape Plan is taking a moment to figure out all the new ways to interact with the game, as well as exploring the new interfaces of PS Vita's hardware... all without splatting our hapless heroes all over the place.





Never before have players been able to reach into a game from the front and back of a mobile device like this, and have it feel totally intuitive, natural...
