Spelunky Update: New Features Now Live on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita

100°
12w ago - Sony Lead Account Manager Nick Suttner announced news of new features now live on their Spelunky update for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: With Spelunky finally making its glorious PS4 debut last month - hopefully you were able to grab it free in PlayStation Plus while it lasted! - there are more explorers than ever plumbing the depths of the jungle, battling incensed shopkeepers, and dying in an endless cavalcade of unexpected and hilarious ways.

For those new players still feeling overwhelmed, be sure to check out my Survival Guide from last year; a few basic tips go a long way, and the experience is even more fun when you're sharing tactics and stories of your travels with friends.

Speaking of sharing, you may have noticed that the PS4 has a few killer new features, including the ability to watch full replays of anyone's Daily Challenge run straight from the leaderboards, as well as seeing where your friends died (and what killed them) in the Daily Challenge, represented by their ghost. I'm thrilled to be able to announce that those features have been added to the PS3 and PS Vita versions, available now via a free update!

Not only that, but...
 

Proteus is Coming to PS3 and PS Vita Soon, New Features Detailed

50°
69w ago - Creator Ed Key announced that Proteus is coming to PS3 and PS Vita soon, and has detailed some new features in the game below.

To quote: You drift towards a pastel island where everything sings as you pass. The sky begins to darken and something in the distance catches your eye...

I'm Ed Key, one of the developers of [Register or Login to view links] along with composer David Kanaga. Proteus came out for the PC and Mac in January 2013 and had a fantastic reception from Edge, Eurogamer, IGN and many more.

For something that started out as a weird experimental project between me and David, this was pretty mind-blowing, and it's even crazier to now have the chance to bring it to PS3 and PS Vita with some brand new features that take advantage of Sony's hardware.

Proteus is something like a constantly-remixing ambient album in the form of an immersive island world. It's all about a particular feeling of wandering through nature alone, taking it in and getting pleasantly lost.

Maybe it's a little bit about magic and mortality too. Don't expect tasks and scores and checklists - perhaps Proteus lurks somewhere on the shady fringes of what it means to be a game.

With the PS Vita and PS3 versions, we've been adding new ways to engage with...

50°
88w ago - Sony Product Planning and Platform Software Innovation Director Don Mesa announced today that Epic Mickey 2 hits PlayStation Vita this June with enhanced features as outlined below.

To quote: We're always looking for new experiences to bring to PS Vita owners, and many times it's as easy as looking at the extensive catalog of games that make up the PS3 library.

The powerful hardware included in PS Vita has no problem handling PS3-quality experiences on the go, and we're excited to bring another PS3 title to your favorite handheld.

Today we're announcing that PS Vita owners will be able to check out Disney Interactive's Epic Mickey 2 on PS Vita next month, on June 18th.

Epic Mickey 2 comes to PS Vita with a number of new features that are only made possible with PS Vita's unique touch capabilities. On the backend, we've added things like ad hoc network functionality, but we've also implemented new ways to control the game.

You'll be able to control paint, thinner and Oswald's electric beam using the touch screen, as well as use orientation-based controls for both the camera and while driving.

You'll find added touch screen functionality elsewhere; use it to give instructions to AI, select/drag/drop sketches, burst bubbles and projectiles, and navigate...

119w ago - D3Publisher Assistant Producer Miki Takahashi has announced today that new features are invading Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable on the PS Vita handheld console!

To quote: The Earth Defense Force is back, and I'm here to tell you what to expect when it lands on PS Vita this winter! Earth Defense Force 2017 ("EDF3" in Japan) launched in 2007 as a third-person shooter developed by Sandlot and published by D3Publisher.

In Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable for PS Vita, the core of the game (the 3D arcade action and the system features) remain the same as in EDF2017, but by adding many additional features the game feels completely transformed and remastered.

These additions include an online co-op mode, new missions, enemies and weapons, and a new playable character in Pale Wing.

The story is set in the year 2017. The Ravagers - a vile alien race - are coming to Earth, and they have one thing on their minds: the complete destruction of mankind!

In Earth Defense Force 2017, you are Earth's last line of defense. You'll be dropped into the shoes of a member of the Earth Defense Force. Your mission: stop the Ravagers from conquering Earth.

With the added online play, you can now play a co-op game with up to four players on your PS Vita, without giving...
