Colored PlayStation Vitas and PS+ Service

It was a question asked by many a Playstation fan, can we get PlayStation Vitas in different colors? Well Sony has now answered that for you by revealing two colors of their new PlayStation Vita product line-up.

The colors, which are referred to as Cosmic Blue and Sapphire Red, are the latest additions to their vastly growing PlayStation range. If you’ve been keeping an eye on the Tokyo Game Show, you’ll already know that Sony has already revealed their latest and slimmest PlayStation models – which are due to go on sale at the end of this month.

The technical specification of both colored Vitas hasn’t changed at all, as both models are exactly the same spec as the original PlayStation Vita, which was launched back in February of this year.

The new colored models are due to go on sale in Japan around November 15th.

DC Universe Online: Free On PSN

You can now download and play DC Universe Online completely free from the PlayStation Store. There is no catch fellas, as SOE explained the 3 levels of access available for the game:

- Free Access – Just like it sounds. Download and play the game for free. You also get all ongoing game updates (except DLC packs).

- Premium Access – This next level of access opens up to you if you spend at least $5 in the in-game store. Premium Access grants you additional benefits that improve your experience in the game, such as more inventory slots, more character slots, bank slots and more free Vault tickets. So all you have to do is pick up some cool items in the store or buy a DLC pack and you unlock Premium Access. The best part? Once you unlock Premium Access you keep it for the life of your account.

- Legendary Access – With Legendary Access you can unlock the maximum level of features and benefits. To unlock Legendary Access you can pay for a $14.99 per month game pass, or save big with a discounted multi-month pass. Lifetime members are automatically granted Legendary access.

Review: DC Universe Online

I jumped at the opportunity when the question arose as to who would like to review DC Universe Online(DCUO). I have been playing MMO games since way back when World of Warcraft didn’t even exist. I’ve played Anarchy Online, Dark Age of Camelot, Neocron 1 & 2, Eve Online, the short lived APB and several others as well. The first MMO on the PlayStation platform that came out at exactly the same time that the PC version came out was one I had to play.

I came home after a stressfull monday only to find a mysterious package in the mail. DC Universe Online had arrived. Within the package I found a nice leather bound map featuring villains on one side and heroes on the other. Included are two discs, a game disc and a disc with promotional stuff. I popped in the disc and it asked me to redeem the voucher code.

After booting the disc I’m welcomed to download v1.03 which entails a staggering 10GB. As if that itself isn’t enough, another 3GB download starts after the installation of the initial 10 GB. Thank god for 30 Mbits/s Cable or I would have been up all night waiting for this download to finish :)
