To quote: Hi everyone! I'll let you into a secret. When I'm not busy in my role as President of Worldwide Studios I live a secret double life!
I'm a pro treasure hunter and was even at one point ranked number one in the world. My specialist field is an app only available on PS Vita called Treasure Park (although I can also be found searching for Drake's Fortune in the Golden Abyss).
I'm always on the lookout for new challengers, so today I'd like to share some of my experience with fledgling treasure hunters around the globe so that one day, you too might become a world-class pro.
When hunting for treasure, it's very important to bear in mind the concept of pieces. There are four different pieces hidden on a sheet; at the start, you're told the colors of where some parts of these pieces lie. This information is very important!

To quote: Hi everyone. I hope you're in the mood to hunt for some hidden gaming booty, because I'm pleased to announce that Treasure Park for PlayStation Vita is out today.
Treasure Park is a fun puzzle app to while away the hours and it's exclusively available for PS Vita. The premise is simple - create your own puzzle sheet and hide your treasure and medals.
Friends will be sniffing around hunting for treasure, so make sure you plant some well-placed bombs to trap them. With the touchscreen it's quick and easy to set up and get going.
Once you've created your puzzle sheet, you can share it with your fellow fortune hunters using the "near" app or find other puzzles to play and collect treasures. The more you play, the better chance you'll have at getting a high score. You can also team up with your friends to earn big scores. See the trailer below for a closer look.

108w ago - Telltale Games Designer Mark Darin has shared some new video footage today announcing that Jurassic Park returns to Isla Nublar this coming Tuesday on PSN.
To quote: Unless you've been under a rock for the last 65 million years, then you probably already know that we've been hard at work crafting Jurassic Park: The Game.
But did you realize that it's only a matter of days until you can find yourself back on the Isla Nublar?
On November 15th, you'll be able to download all four episodes of Jurassic Park: The Game from PlayStation Network. That is, if you have what it takes to go face to giant toothy face with a massive T-Rex!
We've created a game like nothing you've ever played before. Jurassic Park is about dinosaurs, but as fans of the movie know, it's also about much more than that. It's about the people that encounter the dinosaurs and how their lives change because of it. It's about nature and what happens when we don't respect it.
The story runs parallel to the movie and follows park veterinarian, Gerry Harding and his Daughter, as they get left behind on the island when the storm hits.
They cross paths with a mysterious woman named Nima who was hired to retrieve...
