Vita DRPG’s Ultimate Prize Is A License To Use A Legendary Sword

By Spencer . April 14, 2013 . 4:32pm

imageCyberfront and dungeon RPG developer experience are using the PlayStation Vita’s screenshot feature in a neat way with Labyrinth Cross Blood Infinity. Players that trek through the dungeon crawler can earn the Muramasa Heaven sword.

 

If you’re diligent enough to claim this blade take a screenshot of your inventory with the Muramasa blade in it by pressing the PS Home button and start. Then send the screenshot to Experience and if you’re lucky you’ll get a concealed omega weapons permit card to use Muramasa. Only 100 cards will be given out, which will make this real world prize for claiming a virtual item a real collectable.

    That is pretty cool.

    Alternatively a hacker might simply give himself the item… I wonder if the Muramasa I any good I this game, and if it has a chance of coming west.

    • JonathanisPrimus

      There is no way to hack Vita games at the moment.

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        There is always a way.

        • http://wanabrar.com Rei

          No not this time. Poor cheapskate.
          Maybe in 10 years maybe. But not now.

          • Jason Ryer

            pretty much sony has a way to block it with their drm sd cards.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            People can modify data in a way that is not detectable.

          • Watahashi

            Vita save files aren’t modifiable yet. They can’t be backed up separately from the game data, apart from PS+ cloud saves, which can only be used to overwrite an existing save. As of right now, there’s no possible data modification exploit anybody could discover before this contest starts and finishes.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            You doubt the power of hackers? Meh. This is a moot point anyways.

          • JonathanisPrimus

            It’s a moot point because at the moment it’s impossible to modify anything regarding Vita native software.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            How am I a cheapskate? O_o I never implied pirating. Just modifying data on the game card/save data. And I am pretty sure that nothing is impossible.

          • http://wanabrar.com Rei

            Not talking to you. Just saying.. to those who wants to pirate this.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            You clearly were talking to me since it was a direct reply. But yes pirates aren’t likely able to get their hands on this.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

          Auragar….. you know tht we are not allowed to talk abt hacking/pirating here ryte? Best stop be4 our mod does his thing…..

          • Ceci “Ruzuzu” Kiyomizu

            I don’t even know what’s going on right now.
            Somebody help

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            I knew pirating but I wasn’t promoting it. I didn’t know about hacking. It isn’t like I said how to do it ow where to go, but I did wanna stop , but people keep commenting, and I feel obligated to reply.

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Both do fall under similar umbrellas.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Non? I guess they can. But I think of hacking as more of a cheating kind of thing a la action replay/game genie. Which in and of itself isn’t good…

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Ya but we don’t want to be the refuge for those who think ruining another persons game experience with some damn Nol hack is a funny thing to do. Tis a fine line.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            NoI?

          • M’iau M’iaut

            One of the nastier hacks from the days of PSO. Google Nol hack.

  • Mavalex

    Just think of the process you gotta go through to renew a license like that. At the end of the process there’s prolly some boss which requires some precision to kill.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/playstationunity DXVII

      Anyone else think that Status screen photo of the guy looks funny?

  • CirnoTheStrongest

    that’s a pretty neat way of devs interacting with players!

    Though just what is that card anyway? Does it do anything?

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Did you not read the article? It gives the player the ability to use the Muramasa.

      • CirnoTheStrongest

        I read it, but it wasn’t very clear. And who would want to believe that just 100 people would be allowed to use an item that they found in-game?

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          I dunno i guess it is a marketing ploy. I dunno.

    • http://www.siliconera.com Spencer

      Nah, the card doesn’t do anything in game. It’s a license to use the Muramasa Heaven sword which you already got as proof to get the card.

      • CirnoTheStrongest

        So only 100 people are going to be able to use the sword they acquired? That’s actually pretty lame…

        • Rob Booth

          That’s not how it works, the card is just a collectible, it doesn’t actually do anything

  • kool_cid414

    I’ve had the Vita for three months and I had no idea it had a screenshot functionality. Is that worse than I think it is because to me that’s bad.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      lol I remember reading it as part of the feature list, but forgot about it and only when I accidentally used it a couple weeks ago did I remember it existed.

      • Testsubject909

        I’ve used it consistently. But I like to keep logs of what I do so.

    • zweii

      Probably because its the first dedicated handheld gaming device that has it at an OS-level feature. People don’t look for it if they never use it before on other handhelds.

      • kool_cid414

        I’ve never even had a smart phone so the idea never popped in my head as a feature.

        • Shau Jin Neow

          a good deal of games block it though, unfortunately

          • Relytgninroht

            Thought it was pretty much only Nihilistic games and PSP/PS1 games. What else is there?

      • Testsubject909

        I looked for it and I never used it on any other handheld.

        The first thing I did when I got my Vita was get well acquainted and familiar with all it’s features…

        It’s what i do with every console I’ve owned since the Atari/Commodore/NES….

  • Lester Paredes

    That’s kinda cool.
