61w ago - Smart As Assistant Producer Nicolo Accordino has posted up two new videos today showcasing Smart As, which hits PS Vita on October 30th, 2012.
To quote: We're launching PS Vita's all-new social brain training game, Smart As, on October 30th in North America.
We've been hard at work loading Smart As with fun and engaging puzzle games to put your mental might to the test with challenges in four key areas: Logic, Arithmetic, Language and Observation.
As we recently announced, Smart As also features the voice talent of Monty Python's John Cleese; so as you train, you'll receive his encouragement and cheeky commentary. Better still, as you play and improve your scores, you'll get to share your stats with Smart As fans from around the world via the online leaderboards, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
Here's a sneak peek at the some of our favorite Logic and Arithmetic challenges.
As you can see in this video, the Logic games are designed to test your ability to solve puzzles as quickly as possible. Inspired by the popular scientific opinion that the brain's frontal lobe is used for executive functions like problem solving, organizing and planning, our goal was to design games that tested...
69w ago - Sony Community Coordinator Steven Isbell has made available some fresh videos from Gamescom 2012 today recapping the LittleBigPlanet Karting PS3 and LittleBigPlanet PS Vita news below.
To quote: Gamescom 2012 is currently in progress and LittleBigPlanet is the height of popularity there, thanks to our brand new titles LittleBigPlanet PS Vita and LittleBigPlanet Karting.
To celebrate the occasion, we have a few treats for you!
LittleBigPlanet DLC Costume Cross-Compatibility!
Customization is a BIG part of LittleBigPlanet. Being able to modify your Sackboy or Sackgirl is a way for players to personalize their experience, while also bringing a variety of different franchises and entertainment properties into the LBP universe.
We recognize this and have decided that we can't ask all you LittleBigPlaneteers to fully enjoy the upcoming LittleBigPlanet PS Vita and LittleBigPlanet Karting without an amazing assortment of costumes at your disposal.
So, we're going to let you bring the costumes that you bought for LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2 along with you... at no extra cost!
Not only that, but for any new costumes that take your fancy, you will only ever need to purchase the costume once and you'll have access to it across LittleBigPlanet...
77w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy is here today with a KickBeat PS Vita gameplay video and some Zen Pinball 2 updates from this year's E3 convention.
To quote: Zen Studios is fresh off an exciting and successful E3. Although our presence was modest, we still made a big impact.
KickBeat for PS Vita won Destructoid's Best of Rhythm E3 award, and Zen Pinball 2 was nominated for Best of E3 2012 by IGN and Best Portable Game by Destructoid. We are extremely honored to be included alongside the industry's best!
KickBeat sure received a positive response at E3. We think it's because there is nothing else like it, and a lot of people caught on to that.
There were also some people who simply told us we were crazy when they watched us play, but once they got their hands on the game they had BIG smiles on their faces. We have some new video that was released right before and then during E3, we wanted to make sure you guys got a chance to view as well.
The first video is the intro story chapter to KickBeat, setting up our Kung Fu style cheesy story. All of these story scenes are hand animated, and yes, we hired professional voice actors. As a matter of fact, at least one of the actors we've used came by the Sony booth to say "hi," as they are all from Los Angeles.
79w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani has officially revealed Assassin's Creed III Liberation for PS Vita including some video footage fresh from E3 2012 today!
To quote: Bet you didn't see this one coming, eh PlayStation Assassins? It's with a great deal of pleasure and a substantial amount of pride that we announce Assassin's Creed III Liberation for PS Vita!
Liberation introduces an all-new assassin named Aveline, and takes place in the rich, varied and vibrant environments of 18th-century Louisiana.
For a better idea of how Aveline operates in the more populated urban areas, and to see just a tiny tease of Aveline's stealthy activities in the bayou, you should totally check out the announcement trailer.
During 1765, Aveline stands directly in the path of Spanish forces seeking to overrun and take Louisiana while the rest of the coastal colonies are occupied with the American Revolution.
Aveline is a uniquely effective assassin, employing tactics from her mixed French and African lineage and using weapons like the machete, poison-dart blowpipe and dueling pistols.
You should take a moment to better acquaint yourself with Aveline by watching this video:
