Cute but creepy exploration game set in Japan releasing in time for Halloween on PS Vita

Are you afraid of the dark? Most children are, but as we get older we get used to going out at night and start to realize that the world during the twilight hours is the same as during the day, only a bit darker.

But that lingering fear of the darkness often remains somewhere deep inside, forgotten but never entirely gone. Bring those fears back to the fore again this Halloween with Yomawari, a cute but creepy new game for the PlayStation Vita.

Sony sets its sights on the Chinese market, unleashes its limited-edition dragons on March 20

As the third-largest gaming market in the world, with revenues surpassing US$15 billion in 2014, China has long been a coveted prize for global gaming giants. Yet, until recently, that prize has remained out of reach due to the Chinese government’s 14-year ban on sales of foreign gaming consoles. With that ban now lifted, Japan’s Sony is set to take the plunge into these uncharted waters.

Sony is spearheading its entry into the new market with the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, both of which will go on sale in China on March 20. This being the second planned release after a previous delay in January, Sony is pulling out all the stops with limited-edition models of both systems.

Sony gives PlayStation 3 game cases a facelift, netizens complain they can’t tell games apart

Stroll into virtually any games store and, alongside a wall of lime and dark green that marks the domain of Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Xbox One, you’ll now find the sea of blue that is the PlayStation section. With its latest console, Sony went with dark blue for the majority of its packaging, with all games shipping in cases with dark blue headers stamped with the stylish “PS4” logo. The cases are the exact same colour as those for Sony’s portable console, PlayStation Vita, though since Vita game cards are so ridiculously tiny the cases are roughly half the size of the PS4’s.

But now, PlayStation 3 games wearing the same colours as their PS4 and Vita brethren have begun showing up in stores. Clearly Sony is aiming for a unified look across its PlayStation brand, but some gamers in Japan are not exactly pleased about the change and say that the new packaging is confusing.
