Playstation Vita To Receive Three More Apps

Sony PS Vita News Casual

The Playstation Vita will be receiving another three apps in the coming months: Travel Bug, Ecolibrium and Imaginstruments. Each app will utilise the specific features of the Vita, taking advantage of the front touch screen, rear touch pad, 3G connectivity and front and rear cameras. Each app will be available for free, but no solid release date has been announced.

Travel Bug follows a player created bug itching for some traveling. Using the cameras, players can take snapshots of locations they visit (via their bug) and track it on an interactive map. There is also a competitive element to the app. Using near, players can compete in a mad dash to a particular destination.

Ecolibriumis 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. Players can collect different and  trade species with near.

Imaginstruments is an imaginary instrument application built with the Vita inputs in mind. 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.


Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
