Velocity Ultra Blasts Off on PS Vita July 2nd

Velocity Ultra on PS Vita

What can I say? Other than sorry for the delay! We’ve been somewhat harassed by you folks for a month on Twitter, Email and Facebook, and frankly we deserved it! But now Velocity Ultra for PS Vita is nearly upon us, bug-free and with a high-res coat of paint.

Velocity Ultra has earned some whopping review scores. Still not convinced? Let’s look at some of the improvements in this new, definitive version of the game.

Velocity Ultra features online leaderboards and Trophies (including a Platinum!), native res artwork, and flawless 60FPS action. It’s a piece of perfectly formed interactive art that we’re extremely proud to have installed on our PS Vitas. Velocity Ultra also features the same kick-ass soundtrack by Joris de Man (and myself, yay!), which you can now buy separately from all major digital music storefronts!

So what are you waiting for? A sequel? We’ll see what we can do, but in the meantime, this is the definitive Velocity experience, and we’re sure you’ll agree that it rocks!

price ? file size ? all psvita games should show the file size
Until Sony decides to finally releases a 64 or 128 gig psvita memory card file size will determine what games most users will buy on psn and if they want to delete another game just to be able to download a new one .

Thanks guys, please keep those gems coming, you’re incredibly talented. Would love to see you work on PS4 as well =)

I’m debating attempting a self-lobotomy to remove the pieces of my brain that remember the Mini, just so I re-experience that same level of transcendental elation.

Tips for those vita who are low on memory, back up your games to your PC before you delete so that you can access easy when you want to play later .

Looks Alright.

NES Lifeforce, already beat it.

Make it a mini price, I may think about it after watching the gameplay.

Guess its just waiting for another, good sale like Little Big Planet.

    Velocity Ultra is nothing like Lifeforce on the NES.

    It’s nothing like any other game you will play in fact, which is why an 8-bit looking game has received so much critical praise.

    It’s small, yes, but it’ll give you more pure fun and enjoyment than any AAA game this year :)

That’s great and all, but when are we gunna see the .hack// series from ps2 be brought over to the VITA?

somerandomkrn said:

June 23rd, 12:56 pm


Unfortunately, I put my foot down on not buying anything PS Vita unless Sony does something about the memory card and ridiculous price.

I would really like this, but I gotta keep my word on this matter.

somerandomkrn said:

You and me both James


Looks like a really fun game.

And to think I just bought a Vita this week. What a smart move that was. 7.99 for a better version of an already awesome game…. thank you very much James!

veryhoudini11 said:

June 24th, 12:13 am

@34 yeah buddy i feel your pain, my new Vita came with 8GB which will not do by itself, and the cards are expensive. but this game is 220mb. no need to punish indie developers for your cause, to me that’s a senseless casualty. :(

dummysystem said:

martinirage1 said:

For 7.99 i’m all for it. Buying this when it comes out tomorrow! Thanks for putting this game on the Vita
