With the recent announcement of t@g, the graffiti-based app that combines creative expression, location-based gaming, AR and urban art discovery we continued to build PS Vita's portfolio of applications.
We are now offering you the opportunity to travel the world, manage an ecosystem and express your musical side all via the powers of your PS Vita.
We are really excited about the three latest applications for PS Vita - Travel Bug, Ecolibrium and Imaginstruments which will all be available free to download from PlayStation Store very soon.
In Travel Bug, you can and personalise your very own travel bug and give it travel-based missions to complete. Your bug can take "travel snaps" on its journey and you can track its whereabouts on an interactive map.
This innovative application also invites you to compete against friends to reach destinations first - all tracked via the "near" application.
