    Great news,

    Velocity proved this is a studio that’s going places.

    I hope this is actually a Vita game rather than a Playstation Mobile title though- PS Mobile isn’t available in many countries, including my own Ireland so I’ve missed out on the last few. :(

    I want to buy them!

        Oh brilliant.

        You did just ruin the mystery of the countdown on TSA though.

    Great stuff, Velocity is a cracking game, more longevity and better quality than a lot more of the expensive stuff available on the PSN
