Vita's Ruin Embraces Portable Age Of Social Gaming
Uncharted: Golden Abyss is an example of portable greatness on the PlayStation Vita, but Sony's new portable is diverse.
For example, take Idol Minds and SCE San Diego's Ruin (working title), which is an "ambitious multiplayer action/RPG" that features cross-platform functionality with the PlayStation 3, and a deep social network designed to keep you connected regardless of your location.
Head over to the PlayStation Blog to read up on the available information. They talk about how Ruin needed to be "socially sticky" as the teams were looking for better ways to do PvP (Player vs. Player). And it all starts with the Lair, where you'll equip and customize your character. The Lair acts as your defense when you're off the battlefield and adds to your offense when on the attack.
But that's just one interesting gameplay feature. You really have to check out everything this promising project offers, from co-op fun to an in-depth, highly customizable action/RPG experience that breaks all sorts of boundaries. The Vita is "always on" (i.e., connected), as is your PS3, provided you set 'em up that way. Ruin seeks to take advantage of this new generation of gamers who are always plugged in.
