100°
157w ago - Sony Senior Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared an interview and video tour of Unit 13 today, which takes shooters social on PlayStation Vita!

To quote: There's no sense mincing words: The next game from SOCOM creator Zipper Interactive represents a fairly radical rethinking of the competitive shooter genre.
