4w ago - Sony Product Manager Alex Moyet unveiled the Tearaway PlayStation Vita TV advert video premiere today with details below.
To quote: Just 10 DAYS to go until the launch of Tearaway on PS Vita - too much excitement! To help you while away the days why not take a little peek at the premiere of our official Tearaway TV ad.
The TV ad was filmed over two days in a studio in South Africa and includes a marvellous combination of CG, live action, puppet wizardry and - of course - papercraft! The set building team painstakingly crafted a stunning miniature paper set inspired by the world of Tearaway, including the snowy peaks of Gibbet Hill and the lush verdure of Valleyfold.
Have a look at some behind the scenes snaps:
With every tear, rip, fold and tab, a lot of love was put into the creating the set, from crafting a perilous ravine....
...to organising an entire production line just for trees!
And of course no Tearaway ad would be complete without a fearsome wendigo! Although this one needed a little bit of help standing up. Perhaps he was tired.
We hope you enjoy it - let us know what you think and don't forget there's still time to pre-order...

Okay, now that you've been properly introduced to Connor, our new Assassin, there are a couple of things in this video that I'd like to call your attention to.
Firstly, there are the basics of Connor's character. He is a brutally effective Assassin, taking down his targets with speed and dexterity.
Note how he flows across the battlefield, moving from one kill to another in a seamless, unbroken pace until finally finishing his target with vicious grace. There's also Connor's Native American/English heritage, which adds complexity and richness to his motivation.
On top of the incredibly fluid combat, Connor is generally more agile and deft in his movements, easily able to employ all of the trademark maneuvers of the Assassin.
Now, however, Connor can travel through the trees as effortlessly...

We hope you've enjoyed getting an inside look at this exciting season: we've introduced our diverse group of contestants, panelists, and special guests, provided a sneak peek at the first episode, and gone behind the scenes at the future workplace of the season 3 winner.
To celebrate the start of season 3, we've brought our past two winners of The Tester here to the PlayStation.Blog to talk about their experiences. Both season 1 winner Will Powers (Cyrus) and season 2 winner Matthew Brown (Gaymer) have gone on from their experience on The Tester to full-time careers at Sony.

Adrianne Curry and Brent Gocke will sit alongside guest panelists,...
