Get Ready To Wake UP Early For Wake-up Club For PS Vita
Back in April of last year Sony had shown a lot of cool new free applications coming to the PS Vita, that we all been waiting for and we still are for many of them. Fear not, we are indeed finally getting Wake-up Club in North America (it has been out for awhile in Japan). Wake-up Club is a new interactive way to start your day with other PS Vita owners. Beginning this Tuesday, the application will be available to download for free on the PS Vita PlayStation Store in North America!
I for one, am not a happy person having to wake up early in the day, especially for people like me with early 8 am classes. But with Wake-up Club I would like to change the dreadful early morning wake up by adding some social fun into the mix, to make getting out of bed more bearable. In addition to adding alarm clock functionality to PS Vita for the first time, including the ability to personalize your alarm tone and background theme, Wake-up Club matches 12 randomly selected players who set their alarm clock at the same time into a—you guessed it—wake-up club!
They way this application seems to work, is the moment your alarm goes off, your avatar will begin bouncing around the PS Vita touchscreen. When you start tapping your avatar it will let other players know that you are now awake. Then, the moment you arrive in the virtual club room, you will be able to see other players’ avatars, as well as who’s awake and who’s still sleeping. When you tap the sleeping players’ avatars it will “cheer” them on. But if you happen to keep snoozing though, you’ll notice that the rest of the Wake-up Club players will begin appearing on your screen. You will need to swipe them away and tap your avatar to join the rest of the group. Additionally, you can send friend requests and find out more information about each player by tapping their avatar. Make sure to check out your club records to see how many times you’ve managed to wake up within five minutes, how many consecutive successes you’ve managed, and the average time it takes you to wake up.
To get set up with Wake-up Club, access your PS Vita system’s Settings menu, choose Date & Time, then Date & Time Settings. Ensure that Set Automatically is ticked. Then you’re good to go!
Be sure to check out Wake-up Club when it launches on the PS Vita PlayStation Store this Tuesday, January 15th.
