Daily News: Vita Fast-Track at Eurogamer, Running from Zombies, Gears 3 Cheap

PlayStation Access: This official community Facebook group is really stepping up this month with yet another offer. This time it’s for priority access to the PlayStation Vita at the Eurogamer Expo later this month. Facebook users can enter the draw for Vita Fast Track Entry passes here.

Gears of War 3: If you were one of the poor souls who bought Dead Island but didn’t enjoy it (unlike our own Dan Crawley), HMV will take it off your hands and sell you Gears of War 3 for the princely sum of £1.99. Seems to be an in-store offer only.

PlayStation Vita: More info was revealed on the upcoming Vita handheld. CNET’s gadget blog details the Vita accessories coming from Sony while NowGamer comments on the 3-5 hour battery life. Still no word on a European release date but it will be out in Japan before Christmas. Seems likely to come to us in the first few months of 2012.

Zombies, Run!: Real-world gaming veterans Six to Start and Naomi Alderman are creating an iPhone and Android app that will turn your fitness run into a race for your life. The game sends location-sensitive instructions and audio clues to your headphones. Running over medicine packs, batteries and ammo will automatically pick them up. It all sounds very cool and if I wasn’t so goddamn lazy about running, I’d consider funding this indie project myself. Watch the video and donate to the Zombies, Run! Kickstarter fund if you like it.
