750°
135w ago - Following up on our previous article demonstrating several PS3 games running on PS Vita through Remote Play, this weekend CNET (linked above) reports on how to get many PSP games (that [Register or Login to view links] on PSN yet) to run on the PlayStation Vita handheld as well.

Below are the details, to quote: "Sony says the list of backward-compatible games will continue to grow, but why wait? There are actually plenty of other PSP games you can play on your PS Vita right now, but you'll need a PS3 to make it happen. They may not be listed on Sony's backward-compatibility list, but they certainly work.

So, here's the trick, which has been discussed on many message boards: while you can browse the PS Store to see what older downloadable PSP content is available for purchase or redownload, you're not getting the full picture of the whole PSP catalog. Instead, browse your download list via Transaction Management on your PSN account on the PlayStation 3, and download any PSP games. The PS3 will store PSP games and allow a PSP- or, a Vita- to sync the content.

135w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has unveiled nine tips and tricks for next-generation handheld gamers below today!

To quote: If you've picked up PS Vita then you've probably been too busy plowing through the dense launch line-up to have spent much time browsing the Settings menu.

Luckily, you don't need to - we've spent plenty of time with PlayStation's new crown jewel and we've put together a few favorite tips and tricks we wanted to share. Of course, this is just a start: We want your tips, too!

1. Order in the court! By now, you've probably figured out how to move your game and app bubbles around the Home Menu by pressing and holding one using the front touchscreen, enabling you to drag it around into different frame.

2. Let there be light. You can adjust your PS Vita's OLED screen brightness mid-game without the hassle of jumping...

300°
135w ago - SEGA Digital Campaigns Manager Mike Kebby has shared a few video trailers today of Binary Domain for the PS3 entertainment system below proclaiming the machine age has begun!

To quote: I know it was only a week ago since I was last here re-introducing Binary Domain, but it brings me great pleasure to actually be here discussing the game now that it's actually available to purchase in the shops (as of this very moment).

Allow me to give you a quick recap about the game before I get into more detail about the multiplayer modes offered for your enjoyment. Playing as Dan Marshall you're caught in the middle of a fast paced and intense battle for humanity in a robot-infested 2080 Tokyo.
