Sly: Thieves In Time Sees Vita Release

Sony PS Vita Playstation 3 Platformer News

In what is great news for the Playstation Vita, the fourth installment of the Sly Cooper series, Thieves in Time, will be released on Sony’s latest handheld alongside the Playstation 3 version. The Vita version will contain all of the content of the Playstation 3 version while utilising the specific Vita features as well. A concrete date for both versions is currently unknown, but the game will be released this year.

For those who decide to buy both versions of the game, then there will be the opportunity to play the save file wherever the play session is. Using cloud-based technology, players can save on the cloud and pick up wherever they are. The technology is also being used in Warrior’s Lair (formerly Ruin). The front touch screen, back touch pad and the gyroscope will all be featured in the Vita version.

The Playstation Vita needed games and Sony is going to deliver. Sly Cooper is a fan favourite of the Playstation 2 for many. This will be Sly’s first outing on a portable console, as Sly never got a game for the Playstation Portable. There are other Sony mascots who can make the jump on the Vita. If that happens, then the Vita will surely have a strong first party presence that could help in sales.

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!
