Price cuts, Minecraft, & an indie explosion for PS Vita
I know we’ve posted a lot about the PS Vita this week, but the system is off the freezy lately. Sony had so much great stuff to announce today at Gamescom, including an immediate price cut on its hardware (now $199.99) and memory cards — more on the latter after the break.
Minecraft and Borderlands 2 are coming to PS Vita. So are Hotline Miami 2 (we already knew about that one), Rogue Legacy, Samurai Gunn, Fez, and The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. Here’s the big list of indie titles announced for PS Vita today:
If you own a PS Vita (or are thinking about getting one), OpRain recently made a guide for recommendations of the platorm’s best out right now and some interesting titles coming out soon in the West.
Ecolibrium Launches On PS Vita Today
The new gaming app has the player maintaining and preserving an alien terrain, where you can grow and cultivate various alien species and interact using the touch screen and the gyro controls in the system itself.
Maintaining balance is the key to Ecolibrium. In order to achieve balance in your ecosystem, you must take into account various basic factors, including feeding the creatures, the impact of the seasons and the right proportion of creatures for each link in the food chain. Maintaining balance will net you Ecopoints, which you can spend by purchasing new specimens (animals, plants, etc.) from within the laboratory menu. You can also buy specimens using tokens, which can be purchased in-game.
The game will also regularly have new content added to its stores and available to download as the game grows. It’s free to play, but purchasing things using tokens costs money. How much you want to spend is up to you. Be sure to try it out!

Dead Or Alive 5 Plus Has New Costumes In Japan Among Other Extras
Tecmo Koei announced a “Plus” version of DOA5 for the PS Vita earlier this year, and recently announced that Japan will be receiving a few extra bonuses for a collector’s edition that is being released as well. Fighters who get the special edition get 12 paradise costumes for the girls, a “I’m a Fighter” decal for the PS Vita, volume 2 of the OST, and an “extreme private gravure movie”. First print copies of the game also come with special cheerleader outfits for Tina, Ayane, and Kasumi.
Neither Team Ninja nor Tecmo Koei announced whether or not the collector’s edition or bonus content would reach the west, but have confirmed the game itself will reach Western shores in early 2013.
Is Muramasa For PS Vita On Its Way To America?
Originally only scheduled for a Japan release, it seems Sony’s own blog may have accidentally outed the game, putting it on a list of Most Anticipated Games before pulling the poll quickly and removing Muramasa entirely from the listing.
Perhaps it’s a fluke, but perhaps it’s also a hint of a great game to come to the rather dry PS Vita listing?
