Your iPhone Can't Do This -'Tearaway' Could Paper Over Sony's PS Vita Woes

Forbes, Erik Kain- "I’ve never really been a “fan” of any one console or console manufacturer, but the creativity on display at Sony’s GamesCom presentation is impossible to deny.

As I mentioned earlier, Sony has seen struggling PS Vita sales. Few third party developers have leaped onto the Vita boat, and not many people are quite aware of the Vita’s full array of possibilities. Why buy a Vita when your smartphone plays much cheaper games, after all? Well, Tearaway may provide an answer to that question." (PS Vita, Tearaway)

I can't wait to play Tearaway.

Tearaway looked absolutely BRILLIANT i don't know if there could have been another developer out there who could have come up with something like this.

i hope this game will encourage other first party studios to work on the system, and come up with something as creative as this game.

off topic
does anyone here know of the usa show called necessary roughness? last nights episode showcase Starhawk multiplayer, and gaming.

It's a beautiful looking game with tons of charm. Mm are such talented devs IMO.
FragGen  +   976d ago
Media Molecule is BRILLIANT. And Sony were smart to buy them.
Xperia_ion  +   976d ago
It was my favorite game of the whole show.
NukaCola  +   976d ago
Favorite Vita title for sure. I think it's tied with Puppeteer as the Game of the Show for me. Tough call there.

I have to say MM has some of the best taste in music. Tearway's trailer tunes are awesome as ever.

Also, I wonder if they have cut a soundtrack for their LittleBigPlanet games.

Until Dawn was my game of the show.
Hicken  +   976d ago
Simply a brilliant looking title. can't wait to get my fingers on it... and in it.

Pun intended...?
Fyflin  +   976d ago
Exactly the kind of game I was hoping to see on the Vita. It looks so cool, and it's a completely unique Vita experience (not a sequel or spin off to one of the PS3s big guns).

Really hope it turns out as brilliant as it looks.
George Sears  +   976d ago
Overall, I am satisfied on what Sony has showed to us Vita owners on this convention.

Tbh, I haven't used my Vita in the last month. But next month things will finally change for good.
Xperia_ion  +   976d ago
Get sound and shapes, it's very good.
Snookies12  +   976d ago
Agreed there, Sound Shapes is pretty awesome. :]

Anyone else notice the obvious passion the guy from MM had when talking about this game?

Sorry, but you cant fake that. I love to see devs that really love their work. They'd rather be game makers than rock stars or actor or astronauts.

Is it any wonder people like that raise the bar so often?
Snookies12  +   976d ago
Sony is indeed very lucky to have them on their side. These guys consistently prove themselves, and this looks to be no different.
Jdoki  +   976d ago
That has always come through from MM, and before that when some of them were part of Lionhead / Bullfrog.

It's great to see that level of enthusiasm. For all his faults Peter Molyneux did seem to be able to put together a happy bunch of enthusiastic and passionate developers, and glad to see that legacy has carried on to MM.

Gamescon has almost convinced me to get a Vita... One more price drop and I'll be in.
Sanquine90  +   976d ago
Peter Molyneiux should stayed a lionhead studios. Black and white was so amazing! Underrated game in my opinion.
BitbyDeath  +   976d ago
Gotta admit i was skeptical that MM could pull off another great title with the charm of LBP but clearly they've proven their worth.
abzdine  +   976d ago
this game looks crazy. reminds me of zelda a bit
dafegamer  +   976d ago
It reminded me of a mixture of Phantom hourglass and Super mario 3d Land. Lol kinda awesome that I was not the only who thought about Zelda Phantom Hourglass
when I saw the trailer and Gameplay
abzdine  +   976d ago
when the person blew on the vita i thought of Zelda right away. Can't wait to see more :)
ziggurcat  +   976d ago
i love how this is a veiled vita doom article...

@ waynekerr: did you go to the molyneux school of video game analysis?

Cant see this selling very well
dafegamer  +   976d ago
Really?
1. Its MM they have a big fanbase with LBP and I bet that the Fanbase will buy whatever they Produce
2. This game looks absolutely Brilliant
3. Troll somewhere else
BitbyDeath  +   976d ago
@WayneKerr
Probably depend on how well Vita sells during the holidays, i'd expect something like this to at least crack a million though

If this game is $29.99, WOW
fOrlOnhOpe57  +   976d ago
Are there any more creative devs than MM? Creative and at the same time enabling gamer creativity. One of Sonys finest among many.
rmedtx  +   976d ago
I'm impressed by this game. I thing this does it... I'm buying a PS Vita!
TenkoTAiLS  +   976d ago
It does look like a blast to play, if I do end up getting a Vita at some stage this will be on my hit list. But the Vita doesn't have enough games I'm interested in playing or I don't already have/will have on the PS3 to warrant paying the price Sony want for it here in New Zealand sadly.

Im looking forward to them brining out some more high quality games like this to finally break down that barrier and push the list of games i have my eye on over the threshold so I can justify getting one tho :)
mayberry  +   976d ago
mm has thoroughly impressed me with their boundless creativity!
DigitalAnalog  +   976d ago
Even more impressive is the fact that Media Molecule only has 40 people working in that studio. 15 dedicated to this particular IP. Imagine making LBP with that amount of people with the quality and standard it brought. Amazing.

Who said I had that POS iPhone?
