PlayStation Plus Coming to PSVITA

Sony have confirmed that PSVITA owners are soon to receive the rewards of PlayStation Plus. The announcement stated that a range of games and media developers have already signed-up to produce quality content for PlayStation Mobile. The PS3 PlayStation Plus has grown much stronger since its launch, now offering FREE games such as Dead Space 2, Infamous 2 and Little Big Planet 2. The PS3 service also offers FREE 60-minute trials of games on the US PSN, but this is still yet to be confirmed for a PSVITA service. We look forward to seeing what PlayStation Plus will offer the PSVITA!...

Crunchyroll Bringing Anime to your PS3 and PSVITA

As many anime fans will already know, Crunchyroll is the best place to watch the very best anime releases (Naruto and Bleach are our favourites!) and more importantly, support the teams behind creating them. With HD streaming anime movies and series, Crunchyroll is the best place to begin and continue feeding your anime hunger! Many of us have either used our desktops, laptops or PS3’s to view Crunchyroll’s shows. While the PS3 browser still needs a little more polish, 480 HD streams have still been an absolute joy to experience on your sofa! BUT…Crunchyroll have now announced a dedicated app for the PS3 that will allow flawless viewing of all Crunchyroll shows! The Crunchyroll PS3 app will be released this summer. The PSVITA version has been planned for a release later this year....

Why You Should Buy A PSVITA – Reason 5

Metal Gear Solid – HD Collection for PSVITA Every system has its must buy game but PSVITA owners have suddenly found themselves hitting the jackpot! Developed by Konami (and not being licensed-out to another developer…thank god!) Metal Gear Solid – HD Collection brings two of the most critically acclaimed PlayStation 2 games to the PSVITA…in remastered HD beauty! Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance HD for PSVITA The PS2 masterpiece (that was actually meant to be Kojima’s last) makes its way to your PSVITA and was the first Metal Gear Solid to shockingly leave Solid Snake on the sub bench! Play as Snake and Raiden with your jaw open in amazement, as you realise the opening stormy ship deck scene, is actually being played on your PSVITA…in HD! Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence HD for PSVITA Arguably one of the best (if not THE best) Metal Gear Solid games of them all. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater was huge, had you playing as Solid Snakes father (Big Boss) and introduced new survival gameplay mechanics, such as camouflage customisation and hunting. Guide Big Boss through one of largest and most tactical Metal Gear Solid games yet…in high definition! Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection PSVITA Features So why buy this collection for your PSVITA? Well for a start, this is all in HD and running on a hand-held! But PSVITA has a few other cool things up its sleeve: – Use the PSVITA’s rear touch pad to execute enimies with Snakes knife! – Once snake is mounted against a wall, touch the main PSVITA screen and slide…Snake will peek out for a look! – No more scrolling through menu boxes! Simply touch and hold over your equipment boxes (that will always be displayed on-screen) and slide to whatever item/weapon you need! – Transfer saves between your PS3 and PSVITA! Play MGS2...

Why You Should Buy A PS VITA – Reason 4

Reason 4: Dreamcast Games on PSVITA The PSVITA has only been on sale for just over 3 months and that has already been more than enough time to show just a tad of the hand-helds horsepower. We’ve looked more into the PSVITA’s graphical ability and we’ve also looked at how beautiful future FPS games can look on the PSVITA. But there is still one particular library of games that will not only have customers queuing-up downloads online, but will still be no math for the PSVITA’s power…and that’s Dreamcast games! What would it be like playing Shenmue, Soul Calibur, Blue Stinger, Headhunter, Berserk, PowerStone and more, on your PSVITA? I could easily happen! Just like our other post explains (PSVITA’s hidden games line-up), there is a huge number of existing games that Sony can easily bring to PSVITA. Sony’s new hand-held wonder is not only more than capable of bringing you every Dreamcast game you’ve ever loved, but it’s capable of allowing you to experience them at an incredible 60fps! Just think of it…logging into PSN via your PSVITA (or PS3) and browsing and downloading from an iconic collection of Dreamcast games! Sony’s PSVITA is not only capable of running these games in terms of power, but due to the consoles latest design tweaks, it is also capable of porting all control methods, thanks to the introduction of a second analog stick. This is an exciting project for Sony’s new hand-held and it’s incredibly likely due to SEGA already releasing Dreamcast classics on XBL and PSN. Remember, even if such Dreamcast publishers choose to re-release such games as HD remakes, (such as Silent Hill, Devil May Cry and God of War) the PSVITA would still be more than capable of playing such HD ports! The potential is HUGE and just keeps getting more and more exciting for PSVITA owners!...

Lets Discuss – PlayStation 4

Over the past couple of months we’ve read article after article on PlayStation 4 rumours. But instead of reporting on more speculation, lets take what we’ve heard, what we’ve read and what the past has taught us and use this to construct the PS4 (while looking at some cool PS4 concepts along the way). Will Sony’s next console actually be called the PlayStation 4? We’ve read the rumours of “Orbis” but this would be a codename, a working title, something the developers say to each other months before the rumours leaked, so no one knew what the hell they were talking about. PlayStation is a name far too big and far too well-known. When gamers hear “PlayStation” they want the next one. When parents hear “PlayStation” they either want it themselves or know exactly what they should buy for their kids (a good excuse to play it themselves). We’d be VERY surprised if Sony didn’t call it the PlayStation 4. How powerful will the PlayStation 4 be? AMD have been reported to have lent their CPU’s and GPU’s to PS4 technology. These are the very latest in PC hardware and will enable the PlayStation 4 to hit resolutions of up to 4096×2160 and even handle 3D games at an impressive 1080p. However, the main issue isn’t really how powerful the PS4 can be, (as advanced technologies will always exist from the likes of AMD and Nvidia, due to PC gaming) it’s how developers will take to it. Remember, the PS3 had a hard time with developers when it first hit the shelves and its technology made the system a runner-up, when certain games went multi-platform (take Bayonetta for example). Such difficult technology actually had developers creating for the 360 (its PC-like technology was a hit with PC-using developers) to then rush a PS3 conversion immediately after. This is something...
