    I will play all of the Sound Shapes. All of them.

    Though Sony's E3 press conference will close out today's early E3 festivities, we're already getting a bit of Sony news prior to this morning's Microsoft event. As of this AM, we have learned via the PlayStation Blog that Sound Shapes, Everyday Shooter creator Queasy Games' rhythm-based platformer, will be arriving on the Vita this August 7 for $14.99.

    However, that's not all. It turns out that the once Vita-exclusive title is now headed to the PlayStation 3 as well. The PS3 version comes day-and-date with the Vita version, and, in fact, both versions come as one package. If you download the Vita version, you'll have free access to the PS3 version, and vice versa. User-generated content will even transfer between the two versions.

    We've made no secret about Sound Shapes being tops among our most-anticipated Vita games, so this news is a more-than-welcome way to kick off the deluge of E3 announcements. We'll be sure to check out both versions of Sound Shapes on the E3 show floor,

    As someone who doesn't give a fuck about the Vita and thought Sound Shapes looked promising, I think this is fan-tas-tic news!

    Vita lost an exclusive... to the PS3. Oh noes!

    Getting both versions is a good thing. Also adds Vita incentive to those who buy it on their PS3 as they'll have more Vita software waiting for them.

    That's great news. This looks good but not good enough to buy a vita.

    There was no other reason to buy a vita other that ports at this point.

    I don't know if Sony can afford to, but they really should drop the price on Vita to get it into more people's hands. It's a fantastic device.

    I wonder if this announcement is a sign of things to come for Vita at the show -- forgoing device exclusivity for compatibility.

    My thoughts exactly. A title like Sound Shapes might not be what drives people to spend their money on a new console, but as the amount of games like these starts to cumulate and as a PS3 owner you find yourself owning a bunch of these Vita games, the "switch over" might become a viable option.

    $15 for both versions is such a good deal, I can't wait to play this on my Vita and PS3.
