July 31, 2009 - Original story: According to the German games rating website, Braid, the indie darling game of 2008, may finally be on its way to the Playstation Network.
congrats to the people who actually wanted the game
I've tried braid on 360, and it was a great game. Might even pick up the full game this time around.
Cool, i think alot of people will enjoy this game on PSN. But this isn't my type of game, so i'll pass. But awesome nonetheless.
so is THIS the "fan-favorite" xbox 360 game that was headed to the PS3? If so PS3 only owners should be happy, this game kicks ass!
i'm sorry if we get EACH TIME improved versions of your games . Remember ? Ninja gaiden 2 that got improved ? Tales of vesperia that got a MAssive improvement ? your memory is still foggy ? Then i'll NOT talk about bioshock and the new levels .. We can be happy since our games get improved EACH time because it's a condition sony made in that case . So yeah we're soo happy to get the DEFINITIVE version each time
but i guess it isn't coming soon as the update said info on release would be coming in the next few months.
@pppppeach - You sure? I don't get all this hatred for a "platform". It comes off as a hater of gaming in general - and haters suck. Back when I had a C64 and my friend had a AtariST we loved getting to go to each other's house and play the games we both had. Same thing happened when I had a TuroGrafx-16 and he had a Genesis. Neither of us cared what the specs of the boxes were... it was about having fun. So what kills me is I know another person who acts just like you pppppeach. He is insistent that there can be only one system and one winner. He chose Xbox and defends it to this day and berates every other system that exists. He also goes on and on about how Sony will go out of business and the PS3 is a horrible game system. People that ONLY have an Xbox REALLY believe this? Really? Can't we be straight up for once? He has predicted the PS3 would fail it's first year, second year and now this year. He claimed it was not powerful enough to play games Bioshock and Ninja Gaiden 2. He just won't stop and now none of us will associate with him, and we all have a mix of platforms. Some have all systems, some have PS3, Wii or Xbox only. Regardless... none of us can take the crazed lunacy he projects anymore. The kicker is, he sounded just like you, but took a different track on games that used to be exclusive to a competing platform. Soul Calibur, Final Fantasy, Tekken, etc. have been his target for years as "games he doesn't want to play anyway cause they're crap". But now that they are coming out on Xbox, he of course changed his tune to "we stole away the PlayStation exclusives!". I take it he, you, EVERY Xbox only owners will NOT be buying any of these titles because you initially felt they were sub-par? See the parallel here? See how you come off like a hater? To this day, he complains about the crappy Metal Gear Solid games, the horrible Killzone 2 release and the gay LittleBigPlanet he would never play... because they aren't on Xbox. Don't be this guy. Enjoy games as a form of entertainment, not bragging rights or justification of where you choose to spend money. I get to enjoy video games regardless of whose house I'm at and what systems they have. Don't be a hater, because in my mind, regardless of platform... haters suck and should find another hobby. Hand the car keys over and take the bus, your incessant arguing is tiresome and we've all got games to play in peace.
although i've already played this on PC this is a great game to the expanding PSN library
spin this bots...
The 360 fanbase are such suckers. Every gen you get gamers like this and they never ever learn. 3D0, Jaguar, Xbox etc etc It's like a giant sign shouting "JUMP OFF! JUMP THE f* OFF NOW!" but they just keep going. Are you aware the the more time the 360's on the market the more it decreases in value? re-sale 360 elites hold roughly the same value as well maintained PS2 slims. Hell, you won't find companies like gamespot even accepting anything xbox for re-sale. There's a sucker every gen and that's just the way it is seems.
BUT BU T BU T BUT Braid IS xbot360 exclusive . Thank you bots again for testing the beta for us as always i really appreciate it @below: TO THE BOT under ME Suck it xcocks.
It's on PC too. And the PSN release doesn't have any new features so how exactly is our version the beta? Fail. Lol nice edit, you mad?
I'm glad more people get to enjoy this. The two slaves above me wouldn't be able to appreciate it though.
can't wait play Braid and Castle Crashers on PS3!!!!
Shoulda played them with the rest of us when they came out.
that wasnt even needed your only adding to the flame he was saying he couldnt wait to play a game wth is up? edit: yeah but he wasn't bragging in THAT post plus who knows maybe there will be extra stuff in the new versions we dont know alot yet
there was other great exclusive PSN games to play while those games was out PSN just getting better and better
Because he likes to brag about how they'll be "superior" on PSN when in reality it'll be the exact same game. If you could only read the things this guy PMs me in his spare time. @Above - What games? I haven't seen anything other than Fat Princess. Off topic but has anyone played that tower defense game on PSN? Not Pixel Junk the other one... I'd rather get some opinions before potentially wasting my time downloading the trial.
@ Murder: You're either thinking of Comet Crash or Savage Moon. Didn't play Comet Crash, so I can't comment on it, but Savage Moon is absolutely brilliant. It's my all-time favorite tower defense game. It's better than PixelJunk Monsters in my opinion. The graphics aren't as sleek and stylish as Monsters, but they're still good, and the music is incredible. But really it's just the depth of gameplay. So much freaking fun. You should definitely download the demo and give it a try.
Just shows that the xbox360 is a "sinking ship and developers are jumping to a stable platform." Wasn't it said something like that by mr. Greenburg?
Wait, you think the reason Braid is being ported to PSN is because MR. Blow is looking for a stable platform? Kinda hard not to laugh at that one.
Hope there's a demo. The game concept seemed interesting to me, but I need to try it out. Oh, and it better not be $15 on PSN. The very idea that this game should be in the same price range as Fat Princess is absurd.
A diss against Braid...I'm assuming you haven't played it, cause Braid is probably one of the greatest gaming experience I (and many others) have ever had. It is well worth $15.
I did not mean that as a "diss." It's just the way I feel about the matter. Perhaps on XBLA, in comparison to what else is there, $15 is worth it. PSN is another thing entirely.
Well I agree with you on this one Evo. I have both Fat Princess on PS3 and Braid on 360. I love both of the games. But I mean, seriously, Fat Princess has three different types of single-player mode, and numerous multiplayer modes with tons of maps and a huge amount of depth and strategy in the gameplay. A single match can last 30, 40 minutes or even more. There is just so much replay value in Fat Princess, so much gameplay to be had. Braid, while brilliant in every way, is an extremely short game with basically no replay value. In that regard, the 15 dollars does seem much more fair for Fat Princess. Although, I don't regret paying 15 dollars for Braid at all. But I mean, with a game like Flower on the PSN, with just as long of a story and arguably more incentive to replay the game than Braid, and definitely higher production values with more music, and insane graphics, at only 10 dollars, it seems hard to justify Braid being worth 15.
Dude, you nailed it exactly. That's exactly how I thought about the matter, to the word.
LOL @ PS3 fans frothing at the mouth. We all know you crave 360 games, but try to contain yourselves.
Haven't they said countless times anything that goes to the 360 is automatically garbage and nothing we have is worth playing? Why does everyone go insane and start bouncing off the walls over leftovers from last year?
You mean games that are multiplatform in the beginning, and then get bought out by M$? Thus, tricking consumers into thinking that the game they bought is exclusive to their console, but does indeed come out later on another platform with extra content? ....suckers
It`s like the little puppy dog that hovers around you while your eating dinner, praying for you to spill some food.
Someone's butt hurting here. Another lost LOL First Castle Crashers. Now this? They barely have games for 2009 and yet lost two exclusive titles. Ouch! LOL.
when u got ps2 franchise games u bots were wetting ur pants :P....and even ur xbot sites have lists in which they state the games they would like to steal!!...owned by ur own people!
I love feeding droids table scraps...LMAO. I thought PSN had better titles? I'm playing MvC2 now droids...Don't worry, when I'm done you can play with whats left. Hahhahaaaaaa
it kinda does have better titles on the psn arcade compared to xbl
Isn't Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 on the PSN as well? Your little jab doesn't really sting.
On the Waitstation 3 it will be out in 2 weeks.
Castle Crashers & Braid, Now all PSN needs is Bomberman LIVE and it'll have every game I ever cared about on the xbox live arcade
Pac-Man Championship Edition. C'mon Namco, you know we want it!
PSN already has Bomberman Ultra, and i think it includes most of the stuff from Live, so count that done! Was just playing it with a couple of my friends! First game ever to support 7 player local multiplayer hehe... Incredibly fun!!
i want mr.driller make it happen sony (or namco?) loved that game on ps1 and even tho it was kinda broken on live, i still want to be drillin them jelly blocks in HD if they can fix the probs (i dont want not the ps1 ver. on JPN PS store) **kinda off topic but anyone else think the ps1 legacy titles are a bit of a rip off for certain games. I mean Live gets the HD remake (thats buggy as hell) of mr.driller while PSN gets ps1 ver. so no online play. Also PSN gets ps1 ver. of Castlevania symphony. . . while Live gets HD ver. with leaderboards and achievements while both are same price kinda wish Sony provided an option on which version when it comes to ames like these :\
I hope you're talkig about PSN games because for example PES09 support 7 peoples in local multiplayer matches already ...
this game is great, but it can give u a head ache after a while. u sony guys r in for a treat
LOL @ droids being happy over a one year old game. I thought you guys played this on the PC already ;)
We did, and it suxxx!! One of the worst games ever made. Couldn't get past the second level. We are only mocking the fixbots because it's coming to PSN! Who gives a sh!t about the game?!
I see your new tactic is to pose as a PS3 fanboy now, huh, Soda? Pretty cool. I bet you catch some big fish, too! How many 360 fans do you think are going to take it seriously and attack you?
Another XB2 exclusive. When it rains, it pours
Damn bots celebrate when they get an old PS2 franchise on the 360 yet the PS3 continues to steal CURRENT gen exclusives and not a word is heard. Why wasn't there a big internet breakdown when Bioshock or Ninja Gaiden etc went exclusive yet when FF XII and MG Rising (it doesn't deserve the "Solid" in it name) go "multiplat" (Even though rising was never exclusive and isn't part of the main series) there's huge shockwaves across the internet with a gazillion PS3 is doomed articles. Fuking biased media.
Awesome I'm getting this and Castle Crashers along with Shatter (Don't have money right now because I bought fat princess). PS Store is getting better everyday.
nothing is exclusive anymore.
Well, do I need to say anything? This game is pure awesomeness! I played it on PC, the game has a great story, a twist at the end with lots of symbolism and deeper meanings that you might not expect from such a simple platform game. Not to mention it has one of the greatest game soundtracks ever! PS3 owners, do yourself a favor and buy this game. You'll enjoy it even more than the games with superb graphics but dull gameplay that you're playing on PS3. It's simple, enjoyable, has a retro feeling in it and AWESOME as hell!
