Cool, I’ll probably end up getting this If the price Is right, I’ve been wanting to re-download Tearaway on my Vita for a while, but apparently the PSN gods don’t seem to think I own It anymore…:(

    link1983 12 June, 2015 @ 4:59 pm    

    I get that all of the time. The thing is, If you go into your downloads rather than searching for it on the store, then go through them it will be there. Just if you library is 97 pages long like mine it can be a real chore.

    JecciusC 12 June, 2015 @ 10:53 pm    

    ^^this; the sooner they put a sort/search function on the download lists on the Store the better it would be for everyone. I’ve got over 1000 items and it can take forever to find stuff.

Looks very nice. I’m sure the PS4 can do wonders for making the papery world of Tearaway feel more vast and alive than ever. And I’m sure the brilliant minds at Media Molecule have plenty of crazy cool ideas in store for this reimagined version.

The only thing is… I don’t think the game is going to have the same kind of magic on PS4. The very conception of Tearaway was based around the Vita, which acts as the console, screen and controller all in one. The idea of holding a tactile world in your hands just doesn’t translate as well to the PS4, where there’s a three-way separation between the PS4, DS4 and TV screen. The tactility and the very personal nature of the game is lost. At least in my opinion this feels a little disingenuous compared to the original, which WAY more people should have bought because it was fantastic by the way.

    MaxDiehard 12 June, 2015 @ 4:23 pm    

    I feel as if it should have remained a Vita exclusive.

    X_Weapon 12 June, 2015 @ 4:35 pm    

    Oh god…no. They should release Gravity Rush and the Danganronpa games on PS4 too.

    NorthernFusion 12 June, 2015 @ 4:41 pm    

    It’ll still be a great game, no doubt about it. But announcing it for PS4 was the final nail in the coffin for Vita, hence why it’s living on through the former rather than the latter. It’s a shame, because it was fantastic on Vita, worked superbly in every aspect.

    xampage 12 June, 2015 @ 5:08 pm    

    The best feature of the game was the use of the camera.
    The most charming moments were created with the camera.
    So I have my doubts that the ps4 version will be able to capture the vita’s versions “magic”
    Kinda feels like a Quick filler so People dont notice nothings comming out the rest of the year…

    novurdim 12 June, 2015 @ 5:28 pm    

    @X_Weapon, just buy a damn vita and don’t irritate people.

joyrul96 12 June, 2015 @ 4:32 pm   4

PS4 needs more unique bright colourful games like this, will buy day 1 to support this

    madmanwithabox12 12 June, 2015 @ 4:40 pm    

    Unique? It’s a Vita game that’s been reimagined for PS4. The original is unique, I’ll grant you that. This one, not so much.

X_Weapon 12 June, 2015 @ 4:36 pm   5

Cool. Great news Sony.

ALL E3 2014 announced games are getting a release window BEFORE E3 2015 even starts.


The game looks super-polished. I wonder if any of those special editions will come in card packaging.

CoolRichy007UK 12 June, 2015 @ 4:41 pm   7

Its coming to ps4 so tough cookies lol day1 buy for me as well and this version WONT be on vita it was remade for ps4 only



link1983 12 June, 2015 @ 4:57 pm   9

11 September you say. . . I’m flying out to Greece then, Could you maybe bring it to the 9th in the UK too. I don’t understand why the rest of Europe can have it earlier.

joyrul96 12 June, 2015 @ 5:02 pm   10

Alot of people already saying what’s the difference between Vita and PS4 versions lol. This article is terrible, didn’t even note the brand new 50% more content and changes only on this version..

Cpt_Yanni 12 June, 2015 @ 5:52 pm   11

I hope there is co-op or multiplayer…


There is one thing you should not change from the Vita version.
When choosing color of your finger. If this game has it please don’t forget that function.
Was really surprised that you had thought of that detail and it made me really happy and emotional in a good way.


looking forward to this game but again a Sony game gets a pre-order bonus.
That’s saying you don’t think the game will get good reviews so you want to sell it before release and the reviews.
I’m sure that is not the case and the game will be awesome but real gamers HATE the pre-order noncense.
Please be For The Gamer and be more like CD Project Red and a bit less then…this.


we always have to wait a few days after the us, annoying 🙁 also why hasn’t a price been announced yet like the us has?


oh and sep/oct will be busy for ps4 owners, i’m glad the games are getting better now.

sporeboy100 12 June, 2015 @ 7:20 pm   16

Why make the UK wait until LAST?! MM is in the UK, but the rest of Europe gets it earlier, no fair and makes no sense!

beanoflondon 12 June, 2015 @ 8:31 pm   17

You can pre-order it from the ps store for £35 so wouldn’t mind guessing about £30 as the store always seems to be about £5 extra than physical copy

    Tee_Doff 12 June, 2015 @ 11:27 pm    

    Gotta love the pricing. $40 on the U.S. Store (£26~), yet £35 on our store ($55)… Bleh. Would be all over it at £25. Probably same with Ratchet and Clank pricing too.

Lucreto 12 June, 2015 @ 8:47 pm   18

Excellent news,

I plan on getting the special edition.

Harrisown 12 June, 2015 @ 11:55 pm   19

My first ever platinum was this game a few months ago.
Being a creative type At the age of 35 I was entertained utterly from start to finish.
I just wonder how different/long this version is.

Berninio0 13 June, 2015 @ 12:22 am   20

I figured out how to make this game even better.
1. To each box you should add page od paper with game hero to cut out.
2. Make mobile APP with ability of taking pictures of things and then adding them as a in-game texture.

residentSteve 13 June, 2015 @ 6:13 am   21

The only vita game I want to play again is uncharted golden abyss on my ps4 come on Sony make it happen.

THE_FORCE 13 June, 2015 @ 7:20 am   22

MADE (to wait) IN BRITAIN.

Suzzopher 14 June, 2015 @ 7:24 pm   23

Is this going to be cheaper here like in the states?


there is still no place to preorder the special edition, game or amazon have yet to list it 🙁 hope that changes soon.
