n-Space Are Not Developing Call of Duty PS Vita

n-Space have confirmed that they are not working on a handheld version of Call of Duty Black Ops 2, more details inside......

n-Space founder Dan O' Leary confirms via Twitter that n-Space are not developing a portable version of Call of Duty, in response to a question asking whether n-Space was working on a handheld counter part to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, O'Leary said "we have no first person shooters in development at this time."

So what does this mean? basically it means that Activision have maybe allowed Treyarch to also handle Call of Duty PS Vita, maybe because development is supposedly similar to a Playstation 3.

Shigeru Miyamoto says "PS Vita isn't a very strong product"



Legendary video game developer Shigeru Miyamoto (creator of Mario and Zelda) shares his thoughts on the Playstation Vita, details inside.......

EDGE magazine asked Miyamoto what he thought of the Playstation Vita and responded with:
It's obviously a very hi-spec machine and you can do lots of things with it, but I don't really see the combination of software and hardware that really makes a very strong product," said Miyamoto. "But I can't really say"  
He concluded with:
"I'm not looking at Vita as happy that it's not selling well, or scared that it would sell well - I'm not looking at Vita that way."
It seems as though Miyamoto's real opinion has been censored in some way as unlike EA, Nintendo have respect for their competitors and do not want to start an immature flame war.

However by reading Miyamoto's words it seems as though he might not consider the PS Vita as something "unique" due to it being relatively similar to a PS3 unlike the Nintendo 3DS which is on the other end of the spectrum when compared to the Nintendo Wii.

Major PS Vita price drop coming

Along with the price cut Sony also announced a "Pioneer Program" This is a set of free gifts and downloadable games which will be available to the early adopters who purchased a PS Vita at its previous $220 price. Starting April 17th PSN accounts which connect to the PS Vita PSN store before 12am April 16th will be entitled to 10 free PSP games, the free PSP games are as follows:

   

Kermit might hold the key to Vita Hardware

Kermit, either a protocol or perhaps a funny name is a communication interface for the PSP emu. Specifically it allows the PSP to talk to the host (Vita).

Now, I can tell there aren’t as many developers here, so I’ll try to simplify for the curious minds but this stuff is pretty complicated. I’ll only explain the API in detail as the lower level still need a little bit of clearing up, but here goes.

Ok, Kermit is here so that the emu can communicate to the host to share resources and other vitality. Perhaps the primary reason is that of hardware; the PSP emu is excluded from many hardware devices. So kermit sets in and allows the system to talk to the vita in order to use the hardware. Blabbering aside, this is the hardware that kermit seems to be responsible for:

Memory stick
Flash filesystem
DMA
LCD
GE
IDStorage
Audio
Camera
Power Control
USB
OSK
WLAN
RTC
… more

Kermit could be the only entry point to the actual Vita hardware

Hackers Already Close To Completing PS Vita Jailbreak

The Sony PS Vita has just released in Japan, and hackers are already closing in on a way to jailbreak the brand new next-gen Sony PS Vita handheld.

The infamous hacker SKFU is already hard at work trying to crack the Sony PS Vita, and you have to believe that it is only a matter of time before the job of done and homebrew applications are running on the handheld.

SKFU updated his blog on Friday, showcasing his attempt to try and break into the Sony PS Vita via the Twitter application.

He has been known to be a huge player in the PS3 hacking scene, and wrote in his blog that Sony changed the security on the PS Vita, making his old jailbreak method void.

He stated "The PKG's I used for my testings were pretty old and key update was expected. Nevertheless it's a disappointing but a new nice challenge. :)" ( SKFU Blog)

Sony has had a hard time over the years with hacking, as the Sony PSP was a haven for hackers running homebrew applications, game back-ups, etc. with great ease.

The Sony PS3 has proven to be equally vulnerable through a variety of hacks and exploits.

This is the first attempt at cracking the PS Vita, and it appears already that it won't be long before the security walls are broken down

Source: http://www.ps3hax.net/2011/12/ps-vita-pkg-aes-key-changed/


My personal opinion about this is that it doesn't really prove anything or that they are even getting close to a jailbreak, it just shows that a well known hacker is working on it.

What do you think?

Rayman Origins (PS Vita)

I’m not too proud to admit this, but Rayman Origins is the first Rayman game I’ve played - ever. The only thing I knew about this franchise was that it was a child friendly universe that gave birth to a whacky spin off in the form of Raving Rabbids. I did not, however, anticipate the sheer amount of joy that can be derived from this title on the PlayStation Vita.

For my brethren who’ve never dabbled with this franchise in the past, Rayman Origins is an old-school 2D platformer that perfectly blends combat with platforming in a very vibrant world. Story, of course is not an integral part of this game, but it’s there all right. You see Rayman and his band of friends have through their obnoxious snoring awakened the dead who now inhabit their turf, the Glade of Dreams. And of course, it’s up to Rayman to evict the new tenants.


The game starts off in a jungle-based level, but soon expands to include multiple game worlds, each of which can only be accessed once you clear the previous one. Each world is thematically different, so in one you could be floating around the desert on mosquito shooting birds, while in the other, you could be sliding down frozen slopes avoiding tricky glaciers and what I presume are piranhas. The game packs in so much environmental variety that you’ll never get bored, even though you’re almost doing the same thing in every level. Also I recommend playing each level multiple times, because it looks real cool when you know the map by heart and (near) flawlessly breeze through it. Plus you get to upload your score online, so that’s always nice for the male ego.

Every few levels you’ll have to rescue a nymph in distress after which she’ll bestow a special ability upon you like the ability to glide mid-air, dropkick stuff or even shrink in size to access certain areas. The levels that follow suit very cleverly put your new found abilities to the test. For example, once I earned the hovering ability, I was thrust into a game world full of air vents that made sure I mastered this ability to progress.



While this game looks very innocent, it’s also fiendishly tough at times requiring near perfect timing, razor quick reflexes and of course, tons of patience. It is, in fact quite ironic that such a kid friendly game made me spew out quite a few expletives at my poor Vita multiple times during my playthrough. However, none of these moments felt cheap and can be passed after a few tries. If for some reason you just can’t pass a roadblock, the game allows you to skip that level, altogether. However, if you do that, (and no one will judge you if you do), you may lack the required amount of Electoons to progress to the next level. In that case you’ll have to man up and complete the level or replay older levels to earn more Electoons.

Rayman’s transition from consoles to the Vita is flawless and besides Uncharted, this has to be the most visually appealing game I’ve played on the Vita. Its art style is a unique blend of hand-drawn levels fused with fluid animation and gorgeous 3D design. It is a game largely meant for kids, so naturally levels are very vibrant and cheerful and truth be told, it was a nice change of pace from all the gritty/authentic games, I’ve played recently. The only thing I had to tone down was the in-game audio, since the constant gibberish and annoying music got to me after a few levels.


If you’ve picked up a Vita for yourself, Rayman Origins is the perfect addition to your library. It’s fun, insanely addictive and is capable of challenging the most hardened of gamers. It also offers players a surprising amount of replayability and is the perfect fix for gamers who don’t have a lot of time on their hands, since it can be enjoyed for five minutes or five hours. We most definitely recommend it.

Sony to announce new Vita games next week

In case you picked up a Vita when it launched locally last week, you may be a bit miffed at the its launch line-up. Sure Uncharted: Golden Abyss is the bomb but after that there really isn’t any game that may scream out to you. All that could change next Friday as Sony are all set to unveil a whole new bunch of Vita games via their "Welcome! PlayStation Vita Game Heaven" broadcast.

According to Adrianang, this broadcast will include information about new Vita games, services as well as "new information about in-release titles", whatever that means. For more on the broadcast, stay tuned to this site on the 9th of March 2012. In the meantime, do check out our rather extensive Vita coverage to determine if Sony’s latest handheld console is meant for you.

PlayStation Vita games wishlist

Rainbow Six Vegas



Unit 13 has taught us that the Vita can handle tactical shooters pretty well and the Rainbow Six series is by far the best in that genre. It requires a certain amount of planning to get the job done but at the same time never feels overtly real enough to frustrate.

PAIN


PAIN is one of those games that don’t require a lot of time commitment. Fire up the game for even ten minutes and you’ll thoroughly enjoy throwing your character all over the place watching in glee as his limp corpse ragdolls across various obstacles. It’s the perfect handheld fix if you don’t have a ton of time on your hands.

Prince of Persia


Ubisoft’s reboot of the Price of Persia franchise was spot on blending action and puzzle solving with the perfect amount of platforming. The series may have lost its spark over the past few years but we’re pretty sure this franchise would feel right at home on Sony’s latest handheld.

Heavy Rain


Heavy Rain was one of the few games that concentrated more on storytelling than actual gameplay weaving players into an intricate and highly absorbing drama. The game’s rather unconventional adventure game-esque control scheme would sit real well on the PlayStation Vita with its motion controlled and touch-screen functionality.

Batman


Developer Rocksteady’s reboot of the Batman franchise took the world by storm appealing to Batman fans as well as fans of the action genre. It perfectly blended one of the most intuitive had-to-hand combat systems with tense stealth gameplay to create the perfect action adventure. And now that Rocksteady has been commissioned to work on this franchise, I’m sure they could churn out something real special for Vita owners.

PlayStation Vita games wishlist

So you’ve bought the PlayStation Vita and completed Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Now you’re thinking of what to buy since Sony’s launch lineup for the Vita isn’t particularly strong besides Drake’s handheld adventure and a handful of other games. Keeping that in mind we’ve devised our very own wishlist of games/video game franchises we’d like to see on the Vita ASAP. 

God of War
Well it’s God of War so there’s reason number one. Also developer Ready at Dawn showed us you don’t really need powerful hardware to make a good God of War game on handheld consoles as both their God of War games were stunning on the PSP. However, with the power of the Vita at their fingertips, it would be interesting to see what kind of insane stuff they could come up with.

Burnout
So far I’m not overly impressed with the racing games on the Vita. They’re nice sure, but none of them have particularly grabbed my attention. All that could change in a heartbeat if Criterion made a Burnout game for the Vita. Hell even if they don’t make a new one, I’ll be real happy with a Burnout Revenge or a Takedown port.

Def Jam
I might be in a minority here but to me, Def Jam Fight for New York was by far one of the most entertaining fighting games ever made. Now if EA can move pass the disaster that was Def Jam Icon, they could hopefully commission someone capable to work on a new Def Jam game for the Vita.

Grand Theft Auto


If we can have a full-fledged Grand Theft Auto game on smartphones (GTA III), I don’t see why we can’t get one for the Vita. In fact one of my biggest gripes with Grand Theft Auto III on the iPhone, the highly inconvenient control scheme, would be addressed with the move to Vita.

Trine
Trine and its sequel are highly accessible and enjoyable 2D action games that appeal to both the hardcore as well as the casual crowd. The game relies heavily on physics-based puzzles and platforming and in our opinion, both gameplay aspects would feel right at home on the Vita.

New Vita Launch Bundle finally makes 3G model attractive


US retailer Amazon started a promotional offer for the Vita 3G model launch: for 299$, people who buy the Vita 3G get a 8GB Memory card, 250MB of 3G bandwidth, and a free PSN Game. Since a memory card is compulsory for most games, and 4GB is the lowest you can get (and, if you plan to really use the console, it will not be enough), and knowing that most games are about 50$, this looks like a great offer, making the 3G model basically cheaper than the Wifi model.

This is proof that the 3G model is not getting the love that Sony was expecting, but if it’s cheaper, why would you not buy it? My Wifi model with a 4GB card and a crappy game was more expensive than this bundle.
Update: The fine prints reveal that this is not as good a deal as I initially thought it was: the “free” 250MB of 3G bandwidth is activated after your first AT&T plan, which means you have to subscribe to the AT&T offer, which makes that part no so attractive in the end. The game itself is also redeemed only if you subscribe to AT&T. This is still a good deal if you were planning on getting the 3G model, but not so attractive anymore if you didn’t have any plan to subscribe to AT&T with your Vita. Thanks to NitsudR for point this out!

And because it’s Amazon, people who already preordered a 3G model will also be getting this promotion

GungHo has announced that the Ragnarok Odyssey demo, released for the PlayStation Vita on January 19, has been downloaded a total of 100,000 times. To commemorate the achievement, the official Ragnarok Odyssey has been  updated with a new wallpaper.


Vita’s fastest selling game: Hot Shots Golf 6 !!



Hot Shots Golf 6 is the first PlayStation Vita to reach 100,000 copies sold mark according to ASCII Media Works. It currently stands at a total of 107,000 copies sold.

The steps in downloading your PSP games isn’t very tedious either. They are as follows (courtesy of Andriasang):
