144w ago - Sony European Product Manager Mayumi Donovan has announced today that travel, ecology and music are all coming soon to PlayStation Vita in a series of three new free applications outlined below!

To quote: PlayStation Vita was developed with the idea creating and delivering compelling content for gamers.

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.

Take on a divine role in...

144w ago - DrinkBox Studios COO Graham Smith has officially unveiled Guacamelee for PS3 and PS Vita today alongside some video footage below.

To quote: Hello good-looking, internet-savvy readers. Now that you've been buttered up a bit, DrinkBox Studios is excited to announce that our new Mexican-themed co-op-multiplayer dimension-swapping Metroid-vania beat-em-up platformer, titled Guacamelee!, will be released through the PlayStation Pub Fund program!

If you have never heard of Guacamelee! the best thing to do is to open your mind, relax, and watch the below trailer:

I know what you are probably thinking..."What is this 'Pub Fund'? And what does this mean for ME?"

Well it simply means that you can expect Guacamelee! to exclusively launch on the PlayStation Network for both the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Vita. That's a lot of 's! You can also expect the game to take advantage of the special features offered by each of the platforms (details of these to come later - stay tuned).

Set in a world inspired by Mexican culture, Guacamelee! features a down-on-his-luck agave farmer named Juan Aguacate, who sets out to save the world when El Presidente's Daughter is kidnapped by an Evil Charro Skeleton. The story takes place in and around...
 

Video: Introducing Snapshot, Coming to PS Vita and PS3 This Fall

144w ago - Retro Affect Software Neurosurgeon David Carrigg has officially announced today that Snapshot is coming to PS Vita and PS3 this Fall alongside a video introducing the video game posted below.

To quote: I'm proud to announce that Snapshot, our 2D puzzle platformer, is coming to PS Vita and PS3 (with cross-platform saves) this fall.

In Snapshot, you control a robot named Pic. Pic carries a high-tech camera that can "capture" and remove objects and parts of the environment. You can then paste the picture back into the world causing all the objects to come tumbling back out. If you're looking for a new puzzle game with a twist, keep reading!

The game begins with Pic powering on for the first time in a dusty abandoned laboratory. Uncertain about his purpose and why he was built, he wanders into the forest that surrounds the laboratory.

This is where you'll first start to use your camera to take photographs of objects. The first chapter of the game will hit you with a series of puzzles involving moving objects around within the levels, and it's easier than you think.

If you want to reposition a box, simply snap a photo to capture it, then paste the picture back into the world and watch the box fall back out of it.

144w ago - CEO James Spahn has announced that social video service Nico Nico is coming to PS Vita today with a video and details available below.

To quote: Nico Nico is a social video networking service that allows you to view and overlay time stamped comments on live or uploaded videos.

I'm excited to announce that a PS Vita dedicated Nico Nico application will be available on PlayStation Store starting today. With more than 27 million subscribers worldwide, Nico Nico consistently ranks within the top 15 most-viewed sites in Japan, so we're looking forward to expanding the Nico Nico community by bringing this app to PS Vita owners in North America.

With June 4th just around the corner, you'll want to keep up with all of the exciting news and games that will be unveiled at this year's PlayStation E3 2012 press conference.




Nico Nico will be the only service that enables you to watch a beta livestream of the PlayStation press conference directly on your PS Vita. Personally, I can't think of a better way to watch all of the latest and greatest from PlayStation at E3 on the go than on your 5" OLED screen.

Future updates to the app will allow you to broadcast directly...
 

Video: Zen Studios Unveil KickBeat, PS Vita Music Combat Game

50°
145w ago - Zen Studios Creative Director Neil Sorens has officially introduced PS Vita music combat game KickBeat today alongside a debut video trailer below!

To quote: Hello, PlayStation fans! I'm very excited to tell you about our new game: KickBeat.

It's a music game; it just doesn't look like one. Check it out, and then after the jump I'll tell you about how it works and some of the development history.

Music games have a long tradition of innovation. From the peripheral-based games like Guitar Hero and Dance Dance Revolution to controller-based ones like Frequency and Patapon, these games allow us to experience music in new and often unexpected ways.

KickBeat follows in the tradition of this type of music game. Although its beat-matching mechanic is not complex and will be familiar to fans of the music game genre, KickBeat does a couple things that make it different from anything else you've played...




And with publishers afraid to do anything except sequels to dance games, what better time than now to give the genre a kick in the pants?
