Sony Reveals PS Vita Tips and Tricks for Your New PlayStation Vita 550°
9w ago - Sony Platform Marketing guru Sharon Kapitula revealed some PS Vita tips and tricks for your new PlayStation Vita below today!

To quote: Christmas may be over, but the gaming fun has just begun. For those of you who got a PS Vita from Santa, or as a gift to yourself - congrats! I've collected some handy tips and tricks for you to get the most out of your new Vita.

Longtime PS Vita owners, feel free to chime in and let us know your favorite tips & tricks in the comments section.

Remote Play with PS4

Remote Play is one of my favorite features of PS Vita. This feature lets you stream your PS4 games from your PS4 system over Wi-Fi to your PS Vita. So if the living room TV is tied up, just use Remote Play to send your PS4 game to your Vita and continue playing. For instructions on how to link your PS4 to your PS Vita for Remote Play, click here.

PlayStation Now

Our game streaming service that uses cloud-based technology, PS Now, launched in open beta on PS Vita just a few months ago. Through PS Now, you can play hit PS3 games like God of War: Ascension and inFAMOUS on a portable system - how cool is that? To get started, download...

SteamWorld Dig Tips and Tricks on PS4 and PlayStation Vita 50°
49w ago - Image & Form Project Manager Marco Podda shared some SteamWorld Dig tips and tricks today for PS4 and PlayStation Vita fans below.

To quote: Hi everybody! First of all, we've been live in the United States for two days now and, according to your user reviews, we've been getting a whole lot of love.

But we'd be thrilled to hear what you think in the comments below or on Twitter. And hey, there's still a couple of days left on the Spring Fever promotion for all you PlayStation Plus people out there - which means 20% off on SteamWorld Dig as well as a whole bunch of other titles. The sale lasts until March 24th, so don't miss it.

Today we'd like to dive a bit deeper into the gameplay of SteamWorld Dig by dishing out a few spoiler free hints and tips.

Also, because a lot of you have been asking about cross buy, we're happy to confirm that SteamWorld Dig is cross buy across PS4 and PS Vita. And now for a few hints and tips to all you new diggers out there...

Don't Get Greedy

Even though SteamWorld Dig is a mining game, hoarding is not recommended. If you're unfortunate enough to fall to your death or get crushed by a falling boulder, you'll be reassembled back in town. But reassembly comes at a price. Half your mined gold is the standard fee....
 

Videos: Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate PS Vita Tips and Tricks

Videos: Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate PS Vita Tips and Tricks 50°
67w ago - Armature Studio Game Director Mark Pacini shared some Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate PS Vita tips and tricks today in video format below.

To quote: Hey everyone, Mark Pacini here, Game Director at Armature Studio for Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate. We have some videos highlighting our latest game on PS Vita.

Blackgate is a 2.5D Metroidvania take on the popular Batman: Arkham series. The game itself takes place three months after the events of Batman: Arkham Origins, where Batman is sent in to investigate a riot at Blackgate Prison.

We recorded several "Case Files" to both introduce people to the game, as well as give a few hints here and there. We want you to be able to get the most out of Blackgate, as we tried to pour as much variety and intensity into it as possible.

Combat

FreeFlow Combat is one of the core pillars of the Batman: Arkham franchise, and we've adapted FreeFlow Combat from the console editions of the games into the 2.5D perspective of Blackgate. We had specific challenges in bringing this combat into the 2.5D plane on a completely different game engine, while maintaining the feeling of "being Batman" in combat.

This video highlights the various combat encounters in the game, including the different thug types, as well...

Sony Unveils Nine PlayStation Vita Tips and Tricks for Gamers 650°
157w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has unveiled nine tips and tricks for next-generation handheld gamers below today!

To quote: If you've picked up PS Vita then you've probably been too busy plowing through the dense launch line-up to have spent much time browsing the Settings menu.

Luckily, you don't need to - we've spent plenty of time with PlayStation's new crown jewel and we've put together a few favorite tips and tricks we wanted to share. Of course, this is just a start: We want your tips, too!

If you've discovered any favorite PS Vita functions, please share them in the comments for all to enjoy this weekend.

1. Order in the court! By now, you've probably figured out how to move your game and app bubbles around the Home Menu by pressing and holding one using the front touchscreen, enabling you to drag it around into different frame.

You can even change the background color or image by tapping the theme icon in the bottom right of each frame. Get creative and design your own background images (which you can transfer to your PS Vita via PS3) like James Gallagher from the EU PlayStation Blog did here.

2. Let there be light. You can adjust your PS Vita's OLED screen brightness mid-game without the hassle of jumping...
 

Dead Nation PS3 Tips and Tricks: Dead Bodies Everywhere

Dead Nation PS3 Tips and Tricks: Dead Bodies Everywhere 200°
221w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has posted up a collection of Dead Nation PS3 tips and tricks today dubbed 'Dead Bodies Everywhere' for fans.

To quote: Dead Nation's nonstop shooting and scrambling will test the mettle of even a veteran gamer – and that's part of the fun!

I've compiled my battle-tested tactics gleaned from beating the game on the "Grim" difficulty, plus bonus tips shared by PlayStation Twitter followers.

Earn more gold, find more health, beat back mobs efficiently, and choose the right upgrades. Be sure to leave your own battle-tested tips in the comments!

Mob Rules

• Rush makes you (briefly) invincible. Pressing L2 grants you a burst of speed that makes you untouchable for a nanosecond. Use it to dodge angry Bombies, power through a zombie crowd, or sprint over flames. But even the Rush won't save you from the dreaded Cutter...
• Master the Melee. Melee attacks (R2) knock away all zombies, even those lurking behind you, so it's a must for crowd control. To be a real melee monster, collect fashionable ExoGear armor pieces hidden throughout the game and equip them at the Weapon Shop.
• Melee while reloading. Stuck in a reload animation just as a mob is closing in? Jam on the melee button...
