Catan Finally Coming to PlayStation 3

The PlayStation 3 version of one of the world’s most popular board games is coming to the U.S.

Gamers will be able to download Settlers of Catan via the PlayStation Network starting June 15, the game’s official site said Wednesday.

Settlers of Catan is a popular board game created by Klaus Teuber. Since its first publication in 1995, the game has sold 15 million copies. Last year, Wired magazine called it a “perfect” game; we were not exaggerating.

Catan will cost $6.50 and support two- to four-player online games.

The story is too old to be commented.

"The PlayStation version Catan was developed by Game Republic, the Japanese developer responsible for games like Genji and Folklore.

But don’t hold that against them."

Oh, I won't. Folklore is one of my favorite games of this entire generation. Brilliant, beautiful game.

I hadn't realised this - think I'll buy it in that case.

Catan has been on the Euro store for a couple of weeks now but I've not seen much comment on it.

From screenshots though, I like the boardgame-like look of this version compared to other electronic versions I've tried.

If they were responsible for Folklore it's definitely worth looking into then.

This will turn out as the board game no mater how
develops it so I don't really care how made it so
long as it stays the same.
