Blockbuster games cost a lot of money to make, so publishers are understandably cautious about taking any design risks. Thankfully, taking risks is where downloadable games absolutely shine, and the reason why they’re often much more innovative than big retail games. Listed below are five of our favourite PSN games, due to their incredible ingenuity, ambition and creativity.
Braid was finally released on the PlayStation Network nearly two years ago, and it remains one of the most unique and best games on the service, due to its ingenious gameplay, beautiful presentation, and ambiguous multi-layered story.
Read on to find out why Braid is #7 in our Top 20 PSN titles…
The PlayStation Network has come a very long way in the last five years.
Believe it or not, there was a time when merely a handful of games were available on the PlayStation Store, and only a fraction of those were actually worth playing. However, nowadays, Sony’s online service is full to bursting with quality titles that have no doubt had your virtual wallet begging for mercy on more than one occasion.
It’s been a busy ten weeks here at PS3 Attitude. It is easy to forget just how many great developers are out there, so our intention with this feature was to take the time to thank them for their dedication to the videogame industry.
Believe it or not, the PlayStation 3 was released nearly four years ago, and since then the console has been graced with hundreds of great titles. Therefore, we at PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to pay tribute to the people who create the games that make our mundane lives just that little bit more entertaining: the developers.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be revealing our one hundred favourite developers, and believe us when we say that there are some incredibly talented teams included. We’ve now revealed the first thirty developers in our mammoth list, and today we’re revealing the next ten.
With the release of Heavy Rain this week, I thought I’d revisit some of the most innovative games that have graced the PlayStation 3 in the last few years.
Nowadays, it feels like every other game is a direct copy of Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto, so it’s refreshing when a game pushes the boundaries and pioneers something which is genuinely new.
Independent games tend to have either a love or hate relationship. They are often artistic representations of their creators that push innovation rather than heroic storylines featuring superior graphics. Simple yet elegant, these games invoke certain adoration among its players.
Braid happens to be one of these titles…
Although NA gamers finally got their hands on Jonathan Blow’s seminal classic on November 12th, Braidphiles in Europe have waited patiently for any positive news regarding their region.
Well, that news is in. Braid will hit the EU PSN this week and is priced at €9.99 (likely £7.99 for the UK).
Breaking news everyone, the major Xbox Live and PC game Braid has been dated for the PlayStation Network.
Jonathan Blow’s game will be arriving on the 12th of November in North America, and then in Europe soon after.
Popping up on German ratings website USK, it appears that indie puzzle-platformer and time-bending mega-hit Braid is finally making its way to the PSN.
Lauded over in XBL-land as one of games of the year (that would be last year), you may recall our insightful interview with designer Jonathan Blow where he candidly spoke his mind regarding future outings for his successful game. With talk of exclusivity deals and expiration dates, it would appear the game is finally on its way for PS3 owners.
Just like everyone else, including Jonathan Blow himself, we were most interested to see yet another ‘Braid coming to PSN’ rumour appear at News 4 Gamers (N4G) recently.
As you may know we don’t do speculation here at PS3 Attitude, so we got in touch with Jonathan to get the official word from the developer himself. The short answer – ‘no’.
The full response is much more colourful…
