Sony Reveals Sackboy: Project (Near) Space

Casual News Platformer PS Vita Sony

Ahead of the launch of LittleBigPlanet Vita this week in Australia, Sony Computer Entertainment have announced a rather interesting project called Sackboy: Project (Near) Space to commence in early October. This project will have Sackboy reaching the heights of near space where he can see our own planet from afar. He is set to be attached to a meteorological balloon and launched from Australia.

Sony has also brought their ‘create, play, share’ mantra into this adventure. Fans involved will ‘create’ the suit Sackboy will wear, ‘play’ by guessing where Sackboy will land, with clues as well and ‘share’ the whole journey with other players. The whole journey will be conducted through the PlayStation Australia Facebook page, underneath the Sackboy: Project (Near) Space tab.

LittleBigPlanet Vita will launch this Thursday the 20th of September at a price of AU$54.95. For those who want the game but have no Vita, Sony will be releasing a Special Edition LittleBigPlanet PS Vita bundle, which includes a Wi-Fi Vita, a 4GB Memory Card and a voucher for a digital version of the game. That will have a price of AU$349.95, the same price as a Vita on its own.

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!
