Hello! We’re very excited to be sponsoring Fantastic Arcade (Sept. 19 – 22), the gaming offshoot of Austin’s sci-fi/horror/fantasy film festival Fantastic Fest, again this year. If you are attending, swing by the PlayStation area to get hands-on with a bunch of neat games for PS Vita, including upcoming indie titles like Luftrausers, Fez, Hohokum, and TxK.

Here’s the full list of PlayStation games that are playable at the show – hope to see you there!

This is great to highlight up coming games for the PS Vita, I will be glad when terraria comes out for PS Vita because every other platform has it accept for PS Vita. I wonder why is it taking which seems like forever to come out.

TxK was incredibly fun to play at PAX. I’m glad Sony is bringing the event around the country to let people play.

It’s getting progressively harder to look at the list of games that EU Plus is getting and NOT think, “I want that. Why can’t we have that? It’s the same service, why can’t we get in on that too?”
Now, as far as I know Plus is managed in each region by that region’s branch of Sony Computer Entertainment. So SCEA handles it here, SCEE in Europe, and so on.
So, what are they doing that SCEA isn’t? How are they able to get so many more retail titles than here? Is it the exchange rate, allowing for bigger payouts to major publishers? Smaller number of subscribers? BIGGER number of subscribers?
I don’t want to complain like a a private in the Entitlement Brigade. I just want to understand the how and the why of it. There’s a huge discrepancy between their service and ours. I understand that there are a number of good reasons for it. I really just want to know what they are, and if there’s anything that can be done to fix it.
Just trying to get my head around why their service is so much better than our (still quite awesome) service.

Please do give Metrico a try and give us your feedback! We’re still working very hard on it and would very much like to hear of your experience and opinion.
(We can’t make it to the event this time unfortunately, but you can find us on i.e. Facebook or Twitter @MetricoGame)

Several games there that I hadn’t heard about before. If I had known there was a Vita version of Fez coming, I might have held off and waited for that. Less likely now. Flower on the Vita would be cool, though. And is that Tokyo Jungle Mobile or a proper port of Tokyo Jungle?

    The bottom 5 games (Tokyo Jungle, Little Acorns, Hermit Crab in Space, Hills of Glory WWII, Ten By Eight) are PS Mobile but will be playable on the PS Vita. Thanks for catching that!!
