Check out these screens of some of the e-Distribution titles released by Sony and their third parties.
good to see that Sony has its e-distribution games up and running, though i'm still curious as to what David Jaffe's game will be all about. nice find Astaroth
I can rest easier knowing they're going in with more than just flow available, although flow is looking really good now.
this is a good way for smaller(poorer) independant companies to sell and distrubute their games. it totally eliminates the more expensive alternative which are manufacturing the product, the blu-ray disc, casing, packing, etc. no more unsold game disc sitting in the warehouse, now everything is digital.
this is exacly what xbox live arcade has and is doing already.... this is nothing revolutionary... but sony will pass it off as such.
Happy to see progress. I hope they release soon what ps1 games you can download; there are a bunch of titles I'm really hoping make the cut. I have flow on my pc already, and it's quite the addicting game. And I must admit that I'm a sudoku/kakuro addict, so that should be cool to do when bored enough.
yeah, i forgot about downloadable PSOne games. now that i think about it, i just might sell my copies of Suikoden 1 and 2 on ebay (for about $90 apiece), wait for the PS3 and just download them onto the hardrive.
That E- Distribution at least matches the great Xbox live service. I dont play online and dont use my 360 for downloads but one of my friends has some games he downloaded and played perfectly. I hope that some companies remake some classics and distribute them online. Also: guys how the hell you have enough time to spend it here and play?? my admirations to all of you. I still have more than a dozen of PS2 games unfinished, including Shadow of the Colossus!!. I have lots of xbox and gamecube games unfinished also. I havent finished Dead Rising and in my free time I played a little of Ridge Racer 6. It relax me from a stressfull day. LOL!! HAVE FUN GUYS!!!
How far are you in SotC?
i've been splitting my time between Dragon Quest VIII, Resident Evil 4 (nephew accidentally erased my old save), GRAW, Splinter Cell CT, and GTA San Andreas. i've had Shadow of the Colossus in my collection for a couple of months now, but between those aforementioned games i haven't had the time to get into it. it is a very...artistically-ambient... game, and i can't wait to delve into it when i get the chance (who knows when that'll be, with FFXII, Splinter Cell DA, GOW and PS3 on the horizon). i am glad that i got it, and can't wait to see what the developers of it will be able to do with the PS3 hardware. have you tried Ico?
ICO is in my collection of over 80 PS2 games. AMAZING!!!. I believe Ico is a fine example of the true meaning of the Emotion Engine. Anyone who consider himself a gamer should try it. Man Dragon Quest VIII consumed almost 60 hours in my summer vacations ( I work as a teacher) and I still havent finish it. Residen Evil 4 well simply awesome. As for now I hope to get Gears even if I really believe its overhyped. Im also waiting for the PS3 games, even if Im not going to get my hands on one until summer next year. The PS3 looks very promising. As for the Wii, im not very exited with it. I dont like the controller concept, you know for people who have a work it would be tiresome to play after a busy working day. Nice to know there are people in this site who shares a "gamer" point of view. Also BLACK is awesome, as well as POWERSLAVE for the old Sega Saturn!!!! HAVE FUN!!
Too bad I can't see this at work. Anything good on the list?
I wonder what the prices will be. The XBL arcade games cost $5.00 - $10.00. I expect the same.
The arcadetitles look like a lot of fun I must say! Although the Flow thing seems to be stolen from another Arcade title a lot, someone sees they are very close? But hell, they look fun. Props to Sony for doing that. Even stranger, the arcade games seem to be more exciting then the actual commercial game line up!
Flow has been around for a while I believe. If you do a Google search you can play it. I actually checked it out after I heard that it would be one of the arcade titles for the PS3. It's actually a really fun game, very soothing and easy to pass the time with. Even though it is free online, I'm eager to buy it and play it on a HDTV using the tilt controller. Hopefully there are more games like that planned.
Now that game me a genuine smile: Lemmings! That one I'll play for sure :) A good thing that those downloadable games all seem to be 1080p.
Love the look of Flow. Now, if only we could have a 1080P version of REZ... F-me I'd be in heaven.
Ahh Rez. 1080p and 5.1 surround, right? :-) That reminds me; I still haven't beaten that fifth stage yet . . . time to go play!
Damn it, now you have me all distracted. I'm quitting early and Rezin'. I love that 5th-level soundtrack.
