Enter The Wondrous World Of Paper With Media Molecule's Tearaway

SCEA president Jack Tretton says he feels better about the Vita now than he did four months ago, and now we know why.

He was aware of all this great new Vita software!

In addition to Killzone: Mercenary, Sony has unveiled another portable heavy hitter, this one from the LittleBigPlanet developers. That's right, Media Molecule's latest is slated to hit the Vita next year, and the project captures the wondrous world of...folded paper.

Taking advantage of the portable's cool features, Tearaway is about what you'd expect from this team: Ambitious and highly innovative. Studio co-founder Alex Evans demonstrated ways to interact with the game, saying that "paper is just amazing." The game's main character, Iota, is controlled in the traditional way, with thumbsticks and buttons, but the player will also utilize the game's front and rear touchscreens.

We will have "godly powers," according to Evans and the best way to understand the theory is to see it. Check this out.

These announcements make me happy. I feel like their press conference was better than their E3 press conference. At least more new announcements anyway.

Agreed. E3 is becoming more mainstream and aimed at casual players looking for sequels to popular franchises.

Gamescom appears to be for the core gamers looking for cool new experiences.

Little wonder why Microsoft pulled out then. :P

This looks amazing! Finally a title which utilizes the Vita's features in tremendously creative ways. Is it enough to get me to buy a Vita...well It has made me tempted which is more than I can say for any of the other titles.

I'm also glad to see Media Molecule finally step away from Little Big Planet. I was a good game sure, but who here honestly cars for Little Big Planet Karting (after they already made 2 Modkart racing titles). This looks like a tremendous step forward for both MM & the Vita. Look forward to seeing more.

I'd love to watch someone play this game. MM's games always make me smile and feel like a kid again.

Oh wow, this looks so awesome!! This is the kind of software that the Vita needs. The big name games from the PS3 can help but it's games like this that will really push the hardware further.

Now, as impossible as it may seem due to the unique gameplay mechanics, I hope that Sony will keep it exclusive to the Vita. It sure must be tempting to put out a PS3 iteration after a game has achieved tremendous success on the handheld but doing so will not help the cause of the Vita.

Wow! Amazing title that finally appears to take full advantage of all of Vita's functions! New killer app? I think so!!

Well, guess this is another title to add to my wishlist. I think I'll be asking for a Vita for Christmas this year.

Also, for people complaining the Vita has no games, here's a list of great games either out now or coming.

Uncharted Golden Abyss
Rayman Origins
Wipeout 2048
Super Stardust Delta
Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3
Gravity Rush
Sound Shapes
Escape Plan
Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
Mortal Kombat
Assassin's Creed III: Liberation
CoD Black Ops Declassified
Killzone: Mercenary
Littlebig Planet Vita
Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time
Playstation All Stars Battle Royale
Tearaway
Persona 4 Golden
Final Fantasy X HD
Jet Set Radio HD
Street Fighter X Tekken
and (hopefully) Ken Levine's Bioshock Vita is still on track.



I don't know about you, but over the next year or two, I don't see any shortage of games to play on Vita. :)

That is one of the best things i've ever seen.

Mm have stole this gen.

However, the Gamescom best new game winner for me was RAIN. That literally blew the dust off my soul.

Assassin's Creed and Killzone are nice additions and games I'm certainly looking forward to, but this is the kind of game that Vita will need if it's to carve out a nice niche for itself in the handheld market. Really looking forward to it and with one of Sony's AAA teams handling development there's little doubt this will be an awesome new IP.

WOW! That looks like incredible fun but then, I am partial to a good platformer. Sony knocking it out of the park and it's good to see that they've got some of their best developers working on the Vita, which is exactly what I had hoped for. I'd really like to see ND or Sucker Punch apply their talents to it though. Or hell, GT6 cross-play :)
