PlayStation Vita Pets gets Android and iOS demo

Sony's upcoming PlayStation Vita Pets is more-than-a-little-inspired by Nintendogs. But, Sony's doing something Nintendo has never done before: releasing a demo version of their game on mobile.

"We wanted to give people the opportunity to get to know the pups in advance of the full game's release and experience one of the core aspects at the same time," Sony XDev associate producer Neil McPhillips explained. "So we put together the app to allow players to run their own puppy pampering parlor." It's called PlayStation Vita Pets: Puppy Parlor.

Prodigy gameplay video shows off figurine battles

Prodigy gameplay video shows off figurine battles

Last month, we showed you Prodigy, a strategy RPG that uses real-world figurines a la What would Skylanders. The project has since gone to Kickstarter, and it's already raised more than its minimum goal.

Using figurines, players can place their characters on the front of the board to gain maximum attack, towards the back for maximum defense, or get a balance of both by being in the middle. Once characters are placed, actions can be taken by using various cards, like Attack, Defend, and more. Dropping a card on the board will have the game trigger an animation that plays on the TV screen. To get a better idea of exactly how the gameplay works, developer Hanakai Studio has released a new video.
