Sony Corp. this week demonstrated Sound Shapes for the Playstation Vita at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.
Sound Shapes is a platform title in which users control a ball that can stick to surfaces. Users roll on each surface to collect balls that each contribute to a new layer of in-game music.
To gain speed, the ball can shrink and jump further. Any red shapes represent hazards in the game.
The title was easy to control and could quickly become a simple sleeper hit for the new handheld.
Visuals were plain, yet appealing as a work of art.
The final game will allow users to create their own level with touch-based placement and object manipulation with the back touch panel.
The PS Vita will include the dual analog sticks, a 5-inch multi-touch OLED display, 3G & GPS, front and rear touch panels, and a compass on three axes. It will utilize flash-memory game cards.
Hardware specifications include an ARM Cortex A9 4-core CPU, front camera, rear camera, built-in microphone, and Bluetooth 2.1.
The company will partner with AT&T to allow current customers to access Wi-Fi hotspots nationwide.
The PS Vita Party mode will allow users to chat with nearby owners. In addition, near will allow users to play with friends using their PSN ID.
The PS3 160GB Call of Duty: Black Ops Bundle, which began sale May 31, includes the PS3 160GB hardware, a copy of Activision Blizzard Inc.’s Call of Duty: Black Ops, the Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike DLC Pack, and a Dualshock 3 Controller at $299.99.
