Zipper's Unit 13 Set to Deploy as PlayStation Vita Launch Title

200°
125w ago - Zipper Interactive President Brian Soderberg has confirmed today that Unit 13 is set to deploy as a PlayStation Vita launch title with details below, as follows:

On behalf of the entire team at Zipper Interactive, I am proud to announce a new shooter, Unit 13, designed from the ground up for the new PlayStation Vita.

It's been very exciting developing a game for the first portable console with precision dual analog sticks, the perfect platform for a fast action, hard-hitting, third-person shooter like Unit 13. In addition, Vita's front and back touch interface provided a unique and fun way to interact quickly with in-the-world elements of the game.

Fast action, on-the-go gameplay was a key goal for the Unit 13 team. The game is designed for players to move quickly into the action, choosing from one of six Operatives with unique abilities to tackle 36 action-packed missions across nine unique locales. Missions come in a variety of sizes and difficulty.

Some are smaller bite-sized battles; others are longer, more challenging, multi-objective missions that are a good test for any skilled shooter fan. As you make your way through the variety of missions, you unlock the right to take on the tougher High Value Target (HVT) enemy battles. After completing an HVT mission, you can...
 

Video: Rumble Trucks PlayStation Minis Title Rolls on PSN Today

250°
126w ago - Playerthree Ltd Senior Producer Luigi Fumero has announced today alongside a video trailer that Rumble Trucks for PlayStation Minis is rolling onto PSN.

To quote: We are delighted to announce that our new minis title, Rumble Trucks, is released today.

Our previous minis title was the 2D sidescrolling shoot'em up - Apache Overkill, but with Rumble Trucks we decided to do something completely different, a 3D stunt racing game.

Rumble Trucks is not your classic racing game. Playing it feels like a rollercoaster ride: high speed, steep hills, huge jumps.

Big jumps allow for big tricks, perform them and you'll gain a speed boost, use it wisely and reach the end of level as fast as possible to win a medal. On the way to the finish line don't forget to collect the stars scattered around the levels as they give you a time bonus.

You'll be able to choose between nine vehicles with different stats and then race on one of the twenty four levels divided in three worlds. Obviously you will need to unlock the trucks and the levels before being able to play on them.





Reaching the final level in each world unlocks the next world, but those...

Now, we are finally able to lift the lid on some of the NGP titles currently in development. I also managed to grab interviews with some of the developers at an event held in London recently, where journalists got their hands around all of the games listed below.

Without further ado, here are the games:

Uncharted: Golden Abyss

Nathan Drake's first portable adventure is developed by Bend Studio, the team behind the acclaimed Resistance Retribution on PSP.
