Sony Announces Run SackBoy Run Coming to PS Vita & Mobile Devices

50°
4w ago - Sony XDev Europe Senior Producer Tom O'Connor announced today that Run SackBoy Run is coming to PS Vita and mobile devices with details below.

To quote: Hello! I'm Tom O'Connor, Senior Producer in the LittleBigPlanet Production team at Sony XDev Europe.

As well as putting the finishing touches to LittleBigPlanet 3 on PS4 and PS3, we have also been busy working on a brand new handcrafted (and handheld) mini-adventure. Run Sackboy! Run! is a free-to-play, platform-survival game built exclusively for PS Vita and mobile devices, in which you can earn exclusive costumes for LBP3.

The Negativitron (that big nasty vacuum cleaner who sucks up all the creativity) is back, wreaking havoc on Craftworld and nipping at the heels of our very own Sackboy!

Using simple tap and swipe gestures, you'll speed through three iconic worlds from the LittleBigPlanet series - The Gardens, The Canyons, and Avalonia - evading danger for as long you can. Anyone can enjoy the game, but as Sackboy charges along at top speed, you're going to need super-quick reactions to keep him on course and out of trouble.

Collect as many bubbles as you can as you speed through Craftworld, and then use your bubbles to buy special costumes and upgrades. Each of the costumes in the game have built in score...
 

Video: Sony Goes Hands-on with Freedom Wars on PS Vita

7w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill went hands-on today sharing a PS Vita video showcasing Freedom Wars on PlayStation Vita below.

To quote: PS Vita exclusive Freedom Wars comes courtesy of Japan Studio, Dimps, and Shift, and places you into the unfortunate shoes of a prisoner facing a one million year sentence.

It's not all bad news, though! By battling fearsome Abductors and rescuing citizens, your captors will generously reduce the length of your imprisonment - a few years at a time.

Featuring four-player local co-op (via an ad-hoc wireless connection, with vacant slots filled by computer-controlled companions), Freedom Wars rewards coordinated cooperative play.

One player can use a grappling hook to pull an enemy to the ground, while another dashes in to rescue an innocent trapped within the beast's chest.





While transporting a civilian to safety, you'll rely on the protection of your teammates to keep you and your cargo alive. Alternatively, eight player (4v4) competitive play is an option when playing via the magic of the internet.

I recently went hands-on with Freedom Wars, along with my pals Ken, Kumi and Jake, the results of which you can see at the top...
 

Video: Sony Goes Hands-on with Metrico on PlayStation Vita

8w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill went hands-on today with Metrico on PlayStation Vita complete with a PS Vita video trailer below.

To quote: Metrico, [Register or Login to view links]' input-morphing, mind-bending puzzle platformer, hits PS Vita tomorrow (for free if you're a PlayStation Plus member).

In it, players will need to think in unexpected ways to overcome obstacles like bar graphs, pie charts, and... wait, what?





Yeah, Metrico's gameplay centers around the world of infographics. Charts manifest and shift as you run and jump - one puzzle even requires the player to throw themselves into a bottomless pit to summon a bar graph, creating a bridge to the next area.

The music in Metrico is worth pointing out. It comes courtesy of Dutch composer [Register or Login to view links], and it delivers some seriously slick atmosphere to this weird, genre-bending game.

Metrico isn't really the easiest thing to describe with words, though. Thus, I humbly present a hands-on video recently recorded in our studio here at PlayStation HQ. Cast your gaze back to the top of this very page and watch me infograph!

For those who may not know it, Puddle is a liquid-physics based platformer, in which you have to reach the end of a level with the greatest amount of liquid and as fast as possible.

Puddle features 49 remastered levels in a wide range of environments. It's also got two difficulty modes, so you can enjoy Puddle even if you're not a hardcore player.

With DualShock 4, you can either play with the R2 and L2 buttons, the controller's built-in motion sensors, or the touchpad! Additionally, the controller's Light Bar will change as you progress through the different worlds of Puddle.

You can get Puddle for $7.99 , which will net you both the PS4 and PS Vita versions of the game. If you have already bought the game on Vita, it will be made accessible for PS4 at launch. We hope you'll enjoy Puddle on PS4!
