This is one of the lowest prices we've seen for Tearaway Unfolded, beating the next best offer by £3. While we were concerned that the former Vita title wouldn't translate without the use of the touchscreen, it actually ended up providing something just as charming and fun on the PS4. If you're looking for something a little less serious to play over Christmas, you'll definitely get your money's worth with this one. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!

What a joy it is to see Tearaway land on the PS4, especially if you don't own a PS Vita and always wanted to try Media Molecule's much-loved title. Crucially, for fans of the original, there's enough new material here to justify owning both versions.
The Vita's plethora of control inputs were a perfect fit for Tearaway's ambitious ideas. Thankfully, the DualShock 4 performs admirably too, with the trackpad bearing much of the workload, which I'll tell you about soon enough.
If you're new to Media Molecule's other platformer created after LittleBigPlanet, you'll find an excellent experience that's just become the PS4's best platformer - not that the competition is strong right now. You control Iota, a little fella with an envelope for a face. Don't worry, just go with it.Click here to read more...
NB. If you're not bothered about going digital, you can pick up the game for £6.99 (£6.29 with PS Plus) over at the PlayStation Store. Click here to buy digital >>
Tearaway is undoubtedly one of the Vita's must-have games, especially if you're a fan of Media Molecule's previous titles. This papercraft platformer is effortlessly charming, and one of the few games that makes good use of all of the Vita's bells and whistles.

Before we begin, if you just want to bag a copy, any coipy, of Tearaway you should be alerted to the fact that today is the last day of the PSN sale that currently has it down at £11.99 (£10.49 for PS+). If, however, you're rather like me, and quite like owning hard copies of thing on Vita then GAME's low price might be of interest.
If any game of late has embodied "whimsy" it's Tearaway. Media Molecule's papercraft platformer is effortlessly charming, and frankly one of the Vita's essential purchases. Nice spot Bure11 at HUKD.
Tearaway is a playful papercraft platformer that makes full use of the Vita's unique features, not to mention graphical prowess. It's as fun to tinker with as it's beautiful to look at (despite a saggy middle section and, perhaps, some wasted potential), and is an absolute steal for £12.99. PlayStation Plus subscribers get an extra discount, bringing it down to £11.69.
The PS Vita is enjoying a surprisingly great year so far, thanks mainly to TxK and Danganrompa (which I'll review very soon - it's excellent), but Tearaway still deserves a spot on your schedule. Thanks to dealhunter1233 @ HUKD!
Media Molecule's creative masterpiece has flourished on Sony's handheld, losing none of the excellent user-generated content options. The touchscreen is arguably a better tool for drawing animation paths and the like. This Vita version also has its own single-player campaign and there are tonnes of additional levels to play online when you're done.

Here's a great chance to get hold of one of the Vita's standout games for a bargain price. The deal from The Game Collection will save you around a fiver over the next cheapest offer elsewhere.
John has made no secret of his feelings that LBP Vita is the best game available for Sony's handheld, and it's hard to argue with him considering how naturally its Play Create Share mechanics fit with the touchscreen controls and camera functionality. Thanks to bargain76 @ HUKD!

You've never seen or heard anything like Tearaway.
Media Molecule's Vita exclusive resembles stop-motion origami, an impossible papercraft world existing right behind your Vita's touchscreen. Everything is made from arts and crafts materials, from the curly cardboard trees to the bizarre inhabitants, all grooving to the beat of toe-tapping folk reels, horns and accordions. It's crisply-folded and scored, so real and vibrant that you could reach in and touch it. Which is really rather the point.
As an omnipotent 'You' looking into this beautiful origami universe through a hole in the sun, players guide a cheerful messenger through platforming challenges and bizarre diversions using both traditional thumbstick controls and the Vita's full compliment of input methods. Thanks to the cameras, rear touch pad, touchscreen and tilt, Tearaway attempts to blur the lines between its world and ours, incorporating some of the handheld's more esoteric features directly into a truly lovely little adventure.Click here to read more...
Media Molecule's long-awaited Vita exclusive Tearaway releases this week, and we'll have our review of the gorgeous papercraft adventure for your eager delectation tomorrow. However, if you've had it pre-ordered for months, you might be unaware that Sony reduced the official price down to £19.99 on PSN, and most retailers have followed suit including Amazon and ShopTo. Of course, the legendary HUKD community have located even cheaper deals if you're willing to shop around.
I'm sure that most of you are already all over this, but a few retailers are still holding out at higher prices - such as GAME, Grainger Games and Littlewoods. Be sure to check your pre-order and ensure that you're not paying over the odds. Not long to go now.
£1 dearer than PC World, but includes the Special Delivery DLC pack. Can work out much cheaper if you bought PSN credit in a deal. Launches on November 22nd. Thanks to luckysalt1 @ HUKD!

Tearaway is everything we say we want from a videogame. It's a gorgeous, colourful and exuberant burst of creativity that cuts through the Christmas slew of grim shooters like a pair of oversized safety scissors; a papercraft adventure where anything is possible. A whimsical world that impossibly exists right there behind your Vita screen, which grabs you and pulls you into it by way of the camera and touchpad, letting you directly affect the action onscreen with your face and fingers. With Media Molecule at the helm, many Vita owners have been looking to the acclaimed studio to bring some much-needed joy to the system.
Yet I must admit that I had my reservations about Tearaway, despite my colleagues descending into fits of uncontrollable enthusiasm every time its very name was mentioned. In the trailers, I saw little more than a platformer that sometimes swapped buttons for waggles or prods, nothing worth getting particularly excited about.
Now that I've gotten hands-on... so very hands-on... with an extensive preview build, however, I can report that Tearaway is likely to be one of the most creative and downright enjoyable games of Christmas 2013. Regardless of platform.Click here to read more...
Less than a month to go now before the November 22nd release date for Tearaway. The Media Molecule-developed platformer looks set to be worth the wait for the nearly-forgotten PS Vita. The new trailer shows off how the game would only ever work on the Vita thanks to the front and rear touch features, a camera and a microphone. All of these control inputs will be used to create a unique platforming adventure.
Take a look at the new trailer after the break and don't forget to check out Jon's Photo Diary from a recent preview build of the game.Click here to read more...
I'm currently exploring Tearaway, the much-anticipated PS Vita platformer from Media Molecule. Problem is, though, Sony provided us with one of the most generous preview builds I've tested in a long time, and getting a handle on it is taking an age.
Thankfully the Vita takes screenshots. To tide you over, here's a bizarre photo diary of my journey so far, presented by the inestimable Dealspwn McLogoface. Because he's got a Dealspwn logo on his... well, you know.

The Vita's most exciting new IP has received a Gamescom trailer showing off both the colourful art direction and range of ways that players can directly interact with the papercraft world using the rear touchpad and touchscreen. Media Molecule recently delayed it into November, stating that they needed more time to polish it up.
Sony announced a fair few new Vita games and ports yesterday, including Borderlands 2, Football Manager 2014 and a slew of indie titles.Click here to read more...
As trusting Vita owners, we're really looking forward to Media Molecule's Tearaway and it looks like the game is shaping up very nicely according to the latest video from Access PlayStation which takes a look around the developer's office.
The unique platformer will use all of the PS Vita's control methods to interact with the world. The rear pad can be used to poke your finger out of the ground, blow on the mic to make wind (stop laughing at the back), take pics with the camera and so on. We're a bit worried that the game will be lost amongst all the big hitters though. It's already in a niche category thanks to the papercraft-style visuals and its delay from October to late November puts it amongst COD, Battlefield and the next-gen consoles. Perhaps delaying it until early next year would have been better?
