51w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America Associate Product Marketing Manager Derek Osgood has unveiled the Resistance: Burning Skies launch trailer below announcing that the title hits PS Vita today!
To quote: The wait is over! Resistance: Burning Skies hits store shelves and PSN today, ushering in a new era of portable first-person shooters. Dual-analog control isn't the only thing going for Resistance: Burning Skies though.
In addition to the multiplayer features and weapon functionality we've introduced over the last few months, Resistance: Burning Skies brings a new hero into the war between man and the Chimera - and Tom Riley's story is one you won't want to miss. Take a peek at the debut of our Resistance: Burning Skies launch trailer!
This isn't all we have to share with you today though. You'll remember back in April when we talked about Resistance: Burning Skies' multiplayer modes we mentioned that through "near," Resistance: Burning Skies introduces a new social perk which rewards players with XP multipliers that you can carry into multiplayer battle. Today we're going to shed a little more light on exactly what that means.
So, as you play through the multiplayer experience...

Pulse also investigates Gravity Rush this month. This physics-bending action game features fascinating and challenging new combat that you have to see to believe.
Pre-orders at participating retailers include the military DLC pack featuring two extra side missions, two new challenge missions, and military-themed costume for protagonist Kat.

52w ago - ANZ Content Services Manager Nino Kalogeropoulos has made available a new Resistance: Burning Skies PS Vita video today dubbed Spread the Chimeran Virus below.
To quote: As the Chimeran virus prepares to unleash its formidable force on PlayStation Vita users later this month, Frank Simon, Senior Managing Producer at Sony Computer America - recently paid Australia a visit to talk all things Resistance: Burning Skies.
He took time out of his busy schedule to speak exclusively to us on camera about an exciting new social feature using the PlayStation Vita's social and location based service, 'near'.
"With new hardware comes an exciting new scope of uncompromised gameplay capabilities for the first FPS on PlayStation Vita" said Frank.
"Taking further advantage of the unique social connectivity of PlayStation Vita, while playing Resistance: Burning Skies in the dynamic new multiplayer mode, 'near' will enable players to become infected with the Chimeran virus for multiplayer bonuses - and 'gift' these to other PS Vita users".
Resistance Burning Skies launches across Europe on May 30th and UK June 1st.
