Sony Computer Entertainment Australia have today announced three new apps exclusively for the Playstation Vita – all of which are “Discovery Apps”. All of the following are claimed to showcase the capabilities and features of the Playstation Vita console including front and rear touch screens / cameras and more. These three titles described below will all be available for free through the Playstation Store in the coming months:
In Travel Bug, players create and personalise their very own bug which is given a travel-based mission to complete. Your bug can take “travel snaps” on its journey and you can track its whereabouts on an interactive map. This innovative application also invites you to compete against friends to reach destinations first – all tracked via the “near” application.
Take on a divine role in Ecolibrium, an imaginative eco-system simulator where the aim is to maintain harmony within your own created environment. If the environment becomes unbalanced, species in your eco-system must be fed manually until you have restored balance and created the optimum environment for your animals and plants. Users can collect different species and trade them with other PS Vita users using “near”.
If you are feeling musical then give Imaginstruments a try. Imaginstruments is an ‘imaginary instrument’ application designed from the ground up around the myriad of PS Vita inputs. Players can play drums, guitar, theremin, and even the violin. Once each imaginstrument has been mastered players can record their tracks and share with other players.
3G enabled PS Vita owners should also be looking forward to the anticipated release of [email protected], the graffiti-based app that combines creative expression, location-based gaming, AR and urban art discovery. Exclusive to 3G PS Vita; with [email protected] you can create your own graffiti [email protected] to share and compete with other [email protected] Plus use PS Vita’s 3G and GPS capabilities to discover [email protected] wherever you are.
