Why i got a feelling this APP wont work with the vita?

Because PS Vita doesn’t run Android or iOS? ;)

I think it makes perfect sense to prioritize (both from design/gameplay point of view and from business point of view) the companion app for iOS and Android, don’t you think?

– People who have a PS Vita can already customize their character and create collages and customized paper cut-outs for Tearaway in Tearaway on PS Vita
– Statistically, a PS4 user is probably more likely to own an Android/iOS device than a PS Vita
– Tearaway is already on PS Vita anyway, it would be a bit redundant to have a companion app for Tearaway Unfolded on PS Vita imho

I know rhat but i get upset when they announce second screen that i cant even remember they using except playroom, and even there you cant use it in every dlc. Just want too ser if they even care

1.3

Vita has the Second Screen ability.

It’s more than capable of being used to make creations, just as it was used on The Playroom.

Can’t wait to play this game again.

A quick question, on the Vita version the camera was used to put our face in the sun, how will it work on the PS4 version if you don’t have the camera?

Well presumably not at all….

You have to rub the touchpad on the Dualshock 4 all over your face and it does an imprint of your face that can be seen in the sun, like those 3D pin art things. True story.

Don’t be rubbing anything else* on it though, or you will get a telling off.

*like a potato, what did you think I meant?

Neat. :)

I don’t have a PS4, so I won’t be playing Tearaway Unfolded as of now, but I played Tearaway on PS Vita and I loved it! (it was the first game I purchased for PS Vita)

Thank you for the great game experience, Rex Crowle. :) Tearaway Unfolded looks great, I wonder if it will be as great as Tearaway on PS Vita. (it will certainly be very good, just wondering if it can match Tearaway PS Vita because I loved the touchpad mechanics on PS Vita and that can’t really be replicated on PS4)

Also curious to hear and see more about Dreams! I don’t really understand how it works, but it seemed very intriguing. ^.^

By the way, you guys could have shown this trailer in the E3 PlayStation media briefing. It might not be a high-profile megaton next to Horizon, Final Fantasy VII Remake etc, but I’m sure many people would much rather have seen Tearaway Unfolded in the PlayStation E3 briefing than hearing talk about a timed exclusive figurine for the PS4/PS3 versions of Disney Infinity 3.0.

I adore the vita game. My first platinum.
I’m just wandering how different this actually is to that experience.
I’m also ight lay concerned about the length . I think I kinda wanted a sequel along with the original .

Another brilliant looking PS4 Exclusive :P I can’t wait to play this! ;)

Not interested in companion apps lol! but i’d like to know which “select” retailers are stocking the special edition as i can’t seem to find any!

yeah amazon and game still haven’t listed the special edition at all, i’m, still waiting :( that is the only game i can’t preorder, i have uncharted collection, fallout 4 ll ready to go but not this.

6.2

I’ve tried everywhere, i’m guessing the special edition is for US only. Would have been nice if MM could have been a little more specific lol

Can you update Tearaway on the Vita to include those features, I guess you won’t cuz you only released one update for it over it’s lifespan.

Please put app on PSVita!

There’s a companion app for Tearaway Unfolded so it’ll work on your Vita once you use the Second Screen feature.
