To quote: We're very excited to announce the release of PulzAR today, available on PSN for $1.99. In case you've missed our past PulzAR blog posts, here's a word from the game's lead designer to usher in today's release.
I'm Neall Jones, Lead Designer for the next great addition to the PS Vita AR games, PulzAR.
So, what's PulzAR all about then? Well the Earth is in grave danger, somewhere just beyond our planet's outer atmosphere five giant asteroids are heading on a deadly collision course with the planet.

The first Play Card placed is used as the Arena card and draws the level out, then the puzzles use up to 5 Play Cards to place the three types of objects in the game; Reflectors, Splitters and Color Filters.
There have been other laser and light based games before, but none of them have let you see the game world and play it on your table top, something that can only be done with the PS Vita.

Our first PS3 title, Puzzle Dimension, will hit the North American PlayStation Store later this afternoon!
Doctor Entertainment is a small indie studio from Uppsala in Sweden and we have worked hard to bring "aha!" moments to you PSN gamers.
The moment when the solution to a problem hits you is called an "aha!" or "Eureka!" moment. It is a feeling of satisfaction and the brain dances... that is the feeling that we want to let you experience with the 100 puzzles in Puzzle Dimension.
The rules are very simple. You control a ball that can jump and move in four directions. Your mission is to roll the ball on 3D structures, pick up flowers and reach the exit. It sounds simple enough, but the puzzles get more complex and new types of blocks are gradually introduced to constantly give you new challenges.

It's not easy though, trust me! This game will keep you busy for hours even if you are the most hardcore of players. Collecting pills on your way out will help you to get rewards, medals and trophies. If you perform perfect runs, you'll win platinum rewards.
213w ago - Update: RPGLand.com has now uncovered what appears to be a preliminary picture (below) of the Final Fantasy XIII North American PS3 box art on Play-Asia.com.
Square Enix have posted an anagram on their official North American Final Fantasy XIII Web site recently. The puzzle, dubbed "A Henchmen Inventor Tent Unto," appears to hint at an upcoming Final Fantasy XIII announcement.
Shortly following its release, FinalFantasy-XIII.net uncovered the message's meaning as: "Announcement Nov Thirteenth."
To quote: "The nature of this 'announcement' is still up in the air, though our money's on an official North American release date for the super-anticipated RPG.
Though, considering the speed at which the series is growing now, we wouldn't be surprised if Squeenix went ahead and dropped the Final Fantasy XV bomb on us."
