What would life be like without a Call of Duty on the horizon? Well, according to some people, it'd be much better. Sadly for those folks, we live in a world where COD is headed to the PlayStation Vita, with the fully revealed Black Ops Declassified. (Jim Sterling)
New Vita IP Tearaway stars a cute little guy named Iota. He's trapped in the world, in your Vita, and wants to get into the real world to "deliver a message." Media Molecule calls it a "buddy movie" that you make yourself. It's a striking 3D universe made entirely out of paper types. (Dale North)
Shown at Sony's gamescom press conference, the PlayStation Vita will serve as an extra screen and controller for LittleBigPlanet 2 with this newly announced cross-controller DLC pack. With this, you'll use the Vita as a controller while you play the PS3 game on your television. (Dale North)
We knew it was coming soon, but now we have an official release date: Expect PS One Classics support on the PlayStation Vita to arrive on August 28. The games you can expect at launch include Tomb Raider, Jet Motto, Final Fantasy VII, Wild Arms, Twisted Metal 2, Cool Boarders 2, Arc the Lad, Resident Evil Director's Cut, and Crash Bandicoot. (Hamza Aziz)
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance looks as gloriously ludicrous as ever in a new gamescom trailer. Prepare for more pseudo-philosophy, blades sharper than physics should allow, and an evil talking robot dog. Yep, we're ready for another Metal Gear alright. (Jim Sterling)
Destructoid got to visit Treyarch recently to go hands-on with the new SHOUTcasting features of Call of Duty: Black Ops II. We were kind of just thrown right into the mix of things, so you'll have to bear with me as I'm trying to give out play-by-plays all while learning how to use the SHOUTcasting controls at the same time. (Hamza Aziz)
I had a chance to interview game design director, and mad genius, David Vonderhaar on all that we can expect out of the livestreaming and SHOUTcasting features they're cramming into Black Ops II. David goes over the new game mode to go along with the eSports focus, and details finer things like how they're going to prevent cheaters from abusing livestreaming videos. (Hamza Aziz)
