This week, a number of new PS Vita games have been released on the PlayStation Store, including Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation (Ubisoft) and Need for Speed Most Wanted (EA). However, once again, Publishers are being unreasonable with prices and charging Europeans more for the same game than their American counterparts.
SCEE has revealed that the PS Vita’s all-new social brain training game, Smart As, will be releasing at the end of this month in Europe and North America. When released, the game will be available for £24.99/€29.99 from local retailers. Smart As features fun and engaging puzzle games to test your mental might, with challenges in four key areas: Logic, Arithmetic, Language and Observation.
