87w ago - Alawar Entertainment Product Manager Polina Belavskaya has announced today that free to play Treasures of Montezuma Blitz is now available on PS Vita with a gameplay video demo below.
To quote: PS Vita is the perfect platform for people on the go with short blocks of time to play games.
The first free-to-play game on the platform is Treasures of Montezuma Blitz, the newest game based on the popular Treasures of Montezuma franchise.
ToM has actually been around for years with its familiar match 3 gameplay, but each generation of the game has added new challenge and power-ups. This was one of the main things we wanted to ensure we hit with the PS Vita version. It had to be fresh and new, and most of all be fun.
A lot of people look at freemium or free-to-play games and think you have to spend money to be competitive and beat your friends. That's actually not the case with this game.
We built the game so it is actually really fun whether you're earning your power-ups by playing a lot and being rewarded in-game for your persistence, or if you are short on time and want the benefits of being a seasoned and dedicated player, you can spent a little to get a short-term power-up.
It's really the best of both worlds since it respects players that have...

93w ago - Activision Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has announced today that two new MW3 maps are now available for Call of Duty Elite on the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Welcome to winter. It's snowing in Fargo today and the northeast is about to get some of that white stuff too. But I hear Italy is lovely this time of year.
Wouldn't you rather be seaside in some adorable little European villa? Picture it: Sitting in a small bistro, overlooking the sea, sipping something delicious...why, it's a little slice of paradise.
Then you hear the WHUPWHUPWHUP of rotors overhead, and your exquisite view is obscured by smoke from a nearby grenade.
Sorry, pal, you're not on vacation - you're in the thick of the conflict, because you're in Piazza, one of the two new Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer maps that are reaching Call of Duty Elite premium members today via the PlayStation Network. Now it's a little slice of paramilitary paradise.
Piazza is actually going to be a big hit with fans of close-quarters combat; the tiny town features several sharp corners, tight corridors, and dangerous staircases that just beg to be explored with a Striker or P90 in hand.
Is the European coast not your style? Maybe the cold doesn't bother you - maybe you prefer...
