15w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has posted up a video today which pieces together the weird world of Tearaway for the PlayStation Vita handheld game console.
Below are the details, to quote: Hopefully you all took the time to enjoy the new trailer for Media Molecule's forthcoming PS Vita adventure, Tearaway, last week. It's one of the loveliest titles inbound for any platform, bursting at the seams with invention, wit and creativity.
We stopped by Mm's Guildford HQ late last month to check up on progress, and grabbed director Rex Crowle for a quick chat about the game's unusual inspirations and influences. Read on to find out more about the eccentric themes that the team are pulling in an effort to make a truly unique video game...
First things first: paper. The entire game world is built out of the stuff, and you'll be manipulating it with your virtual fingers.
"I think it married together the main things I wanted to do with the game - of it just feeling very tactile and being something you really wanted to hold in your hands," explains Rex.
"And then we also wanted to provide players an interesting way of taking stuff from inside the game, outside the game, so they can build their own version of the experience and expand it out into...
15w ago - Sony Producer and Studio Head Sian Yue Tan has announced today alongside a video trailer thatRocketbirds for PS Vita launches on February 12th, 2013.
Below are the details, to quote: Hello again! I'm happy to announce that Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken for PS Vita will be available very soon for download on PSN - February 12th, in fact!
The game is already available in Asia, where it was bundled with the PS Vita over Christmas, while it was also available exclusively to Asian PS Plus members. Since then, it became one of the top three most-downloaded PS Vita games on the PSN Top 10 PS3 and PS Vita Games in December list in Hong Kong, which is awesome!
In this game, you'll take control of Hardboiled Chicken, the original Cock of War (a chicken so tough, he survived being boiled as a fetus), to lead the rebellion against the draconian penguin oppressors to overthrow their hold on Albatropolis! It's an old-school cinematic action-adventure set in the Rocketbirds universe, a world filled with some despicable and often violent birds.
16w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford has posted up a fresh Tearaway: Welcome to Sogport PS Vita trailer video today with details below.
To quote: It's been a little while since we updated you on our progress making Tearaway, but that all changes today!
We recently showed some new parts of the game to members of the gaming press, and their previews and coverage of that should start appearing today across the Web. We introduced them to an area of the game we've been working on for quite some time, and today we'd like you to see it too!
Just one of the stops you'll make as you go on your delivery adventure in the world of Tearaway is Sogport, a mysterious island marooned in a deep sea of glue, and inhabited by some very fishy folk with a fearful obsession with the island's monstrous local wildlife. See for yourself...
Last August we introduced you to iota, and today we're really excited to introduce atoi (pronounced like the French phrase a'toi - "ah-twa" )
When you start your adventure, you'll be able to customize the game to your liking, choosing which messenger will accompany you on your journey, either iota or atoi, and also on the shape, size and color of your...
16w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Poria Torkan has confirmed today that Killzone: Mercenary hits PS Vita on September 17th alongside unveiling a new trailer and screenshots below!
To quote: Killzone: Mercenary is scheduled for a September 17, 2013 release in North America.
Killzone: Mercenary is a new first-person shooter in the Killzone series, developed specifically for the PlayStation Vita platform and powered by the stunning Killzone engine.
Starting just after the ending of the original Killzone, and revisiting many of the events from the Killzone trilogy, the game puts players in the rugged combat boots of a mercenary named Arran Danner. Danner is a former UCA-soldier who has no qualms about taking on paid contracts from the ISA as well as the Helghast.
When a seemingly routine mission to evacuate the Vektan Ambassador and his family in Pyrrhus goes awry, Danner discovers that the outcome of the war could very well depend on the fate of the Ambassador's young son.
With both sides going to increasingly desperate lengths to get hold of the boy, he begins to wonder whether the price of victory is really worth the paycheck.
We also have a brand-new trailer for you to enjoy:
