Paint Park, Treasure Park, Wake-Up Club Enhancing Vita
If you're a proud PlayStation Vita owner, you know about the Welcome Park application, which introduces you to the technologically slick world of next-gen portable gaming.
Now, Sony has announced three new apps that will join the "Park" series. The first is Paint Park, which is available to download now for all those who are artistically inclined; it turns that brilliant 5" OLED screen into a sketch pad where you can create and share drawings with friends. You can even use the Vita's front and rear cameras to implement photos, and there's an online multiplayer Ad Hoc mode that lets you compete with up to five friends. How creative are you?
Next up are the Treasure Park and Wake-Up Club. The former is a "puzzle-based app that enables you to connect with friends and other PS Vita owners." By using the Near application and either Wi-Fi or 3G, you can build your own puzzles and even "set bombs and traps for your friends." Wake-Up Club expands on the Alarm Clock by letting you sync up with other owners who set their alarm for the same time...which makes even getting out of bed in the morning a social endeavor!
The Vita is quite the unit, and you can bet that Sony will continue to add to it as time goes on.
