Braid: An Xbox 360 big hitter that's on its way to the PC next year, could also meet the PlayStation 3. If Sony approves that is.
I think that Sony will show plenty interest, plenty of peopel raved about this when it came out so i hope it does come out on PSN i am interested
Well I for one hope so. I would buy it off of the PSN. If not I will be getting it for PC so either way I am covered.
I want it on my PS3, if not i'll just get it on PC the game looks good
Braid coming to the PSN would be awesome.It would let more gamers experience this great game.Make it happen SONY.
I really hope Sony jumps on this ,Braid is a great game and I would ove to have it on the PSN....
The game itself is not as interesting as it was. Becomes repetitive after the first few levels. But i all ready bought it for my 360 a long time ago.
I can imagine the conversation... J. Blow: "Can I make Braid for the PS3?" Sony exec: "OK" Gets up to leave. JB: "Wait aren't you going to be awkward about the fact that it isn't exclusive?" S: "No" Continues leaving JB: "Will you give me any help?" S: Comes back into the room "Here's a dev kit and the numbers for Insomniac and Naughty Dog you should be good now. Call us if there's anything else or when you're done"
JB: "Any chance of a ton of money to go multiplat?" S: Comes back in looks miffed "Here's a creased fiver. You can get a cut of the profits but only if you stop asking questions." JB's agent: "Ten percent of that fiver is mine." JB: "You can have the crease."
I can imagine the conversation too... J. Blow: "Can I make Braid for the PS3?" Sony exec: "We don't care." Gets up to leave. JB: "Wait aren't you going to be awkward about the fact that it isn't exclusive?" S: "No comment" Continues leaving JB: "Will you give me any help?" S: Comes back into the room "Only if you become a first party developer like Insomniac and Naughty Dog. If not you'll have to pay for the devkit with your own money and your game won't hit Europe in 2 years. Cheers!"
Nice Jenzo. But Insomniac isn't first party. Neither is Eat, Sleep, Play or Media Molecule.
Ah, touche. thereaperson Thank you.
You're hilarious. Funny if that's how the convo actually goes, haha.
Right, but don't take it too serious. Does 'Playstation exclusive developers' sound better?
Loooooool. That was funny.
That isn't how Sony handles PSN games at all. They even have someone in charge of looking for games. They give plenty of support to people who need it.
braid what? http://www.ps3fanboy.com/20... no really.
That looks like a really cool game, but hey why not have both? I've really been impressed with the downloadable games on PSN. Like I was totally blindsided by Crash Commando last week.
Got to be honest, I like Briad (even though it was hideously overpriced), but I think people got way to excited over it. It's good, but way overrated, which is impressive in its self for an indie game.
It's only overrated (it your eyes) because it's not on the PS3. The reviewers didn't get this one wrong, it really is a unique and refreshing game with a story that's incredible.
I gotta disagree. Braid was near-perfection. Loved every moment of that game. I'd like to see it on the PSN so more people get a chance to play it.
Yeah, good point. That must be it.... I'll be sure to pick it up when it comes to PS3 because that's the only way it will be the best game EVAR.... :-/
I personally think the game is way overrated (like everything 360). The game is just ok, not bad but ny no means "all that".
So, basically he is waiting for Sony to throw him a ton of money to go multiplatform.
It'll be MP in Spring - since it's on PC and Mac too. Since when does MP only mean when it's on ps3 and xbox?
I think he probably meant .. he is waiting for Sony to throw him a ton of money to be on PS3
He is actually wondering if he needs any more money. Why would Sony pay him to put a game on their console if he will profit from it? They don't need the game, the developer would profit more if he could put his game on as many platforms as possible. Sony has shown they are not interested in the same tactics as MS as far as buying away exclusive content. It would be like a store owner asking the owner of the Property to give them money because people like his store.
Braid is not expensive or overrated and hopefully Sony shows plenty interest in getting this game to spread the wealth of great gameplay ^^
I would probably buy it for PS3.
Braid has extremely innovative puzzle mechanics and each world adds a new power to the game. I think it would be great if it comes out to the PSN. Then many more people can enjoy it. It is a little fun game. You better hope PS3 fans, because this game rules ;)
As someone looking to push out his title to as much gamers as possible .. I would be calling Sony everyday.
I like the idea! I'd say one of the top 5 downloadable games this year.
This game is pure brilliant and i might downlaod it again(have it on the 360) on my ps3 if i comes out for it
From what I heard, MS ripped this dude off with all sorts of fees and crap. I really hope the dude makes some cash off the PC, and hopefully the PSN. The game is pretty good.
Microsoft is a gold digging beotch, that's for sure. HE COULD STAND TO ACTUALLY MAKE MONEY IF THIS GOES ON THE PSN.
Haven't played it, but hear good things about it. Would be nice to play it, since I like the art direction... Hope Sony accepts and that they also finally release the PSN Cards in Europe so I can finally purchase something on PSN... (Warning: *Sarcastic comment ahead...) (and when and if it comes to PS3, maybe we can have another one of those ''Very useful and enlightening articles of graphics comparison, and I bet that somebody is going to see a better version somewhere... loll)
what's this game about anyway?
if it comes it comes i say i could care less Flower and Fat Princess will be just as good as Braid but the more games PSN has the better peace
braid what? http://www.ps3fanboy.com/20...
Trine looks great too, now i can't wait for it!
and make it good i will buy it I doubt Braid is near as good as other $10 games on PSN but if its 10 bucks its well worth it
I wouldn't doubt it. Look at the reviews, they're like that for a reason.
Is it really that good?
Story's pretty complicated, wouldn't wanna tell you any of it cos it's best to read through it piece by piece. It's a 2D platformer with time-warping mechanics that get progressively harder and change the further into the game you get. The game is all about collecting puzzle pieces. It sounds lame to call this game a work of art but there's loads of art in it and the story is so original and mind-bending (like the puzzles) that I'm forced to (this game is art). People who say it's overpriced are wrong or 2 poor to afford $10 on a quality game
Thanx for the info..10 bucks doesnt sound bad bubble to you..just cuz its almost x-mas!
No worries, just hope it gets on PSN so you can play it. The graphics and music are also immense, which I forgot 2 mention. Obviously the graphics are 2D I'd say they were the nicest I've seen.
I played the demo and it wasn't my thing, maybe I'll re-download it over the holidays.
I'd love to be able to play it but I just hate the little character on the gameplay trailers-he gives me the creeps like "The Childcatcher" in Chtty Chitty Bang Bang(which I cannot watch).Maybe if you don't have to play using him, like ever, it'd be okay for my fragile mind. Braid would fit in well on PSN though as there's loads of innovative, quirky and quality titles on there these days.
I've heard of these game. It sounds like a cool game so I hope Sony considers this.
It is a cool game, but it was on 360 first, U sure you'll wanna play something like that Ulti? It might be tainted in your eyes.
I don't get it die_fiend.
I do not know why Sony "needs to consider this". He just needs to sign up for a dev kit and that's it. I have no idea if there are some rental possibilities for these dev kits (they are damn expensive) and I am pretty sure they have a common policy in place for PSN titles. But I am pretty sure there is a way if he really wants to do a PSN version, it can be made possible, even with a small budget (if that's what holds him back).
Ju, not sure, but I'd wager there are certain write-in notes in the contract he signed with MS to get it on the XBox system in regards to production, ownership, and publishing rights. I'd wager that's something Sony would be going over with a fine tooth comb, if this offer ever did hit the table for them.
Hm, maybe. But how could Sony be part of a contract he signed with MS ? I mean, that's his problem, not Sony's. If he can release it for PC and Mac, I have a hard time believing, they (MS) forced him into a "Non-Playstation" clause. But who knows, maybe that's what it is.
i really want to see what the fuzz is about, so please release it on PSN! also, i used to really like a band called Braid, lol. (early/mid 90s "emo", real old school emo not the MTV crap)
Braid GTA4 GOW2 multiplayer
Pssh just buy it on PC it will be $10 cheaper and have superior graphics. Lol j/k but the prices of PC games irritate me especially since their usually the superior version.
Soulja Boiii did a great job designing this game.
It's most likely coming to PSN. I don't think Sony will pay him anymore than the royalties he will earn. PSN is super easy for development and is cheap.
If there was any -one- game that went from the 360 to the PS3 that I wanted, this would be the game. I've heard and seen nothing but great things about it, and would love to give it a shot.
If it came to PSN... I wouldn't really buy it. I really hate the art style. It's the same with all XBL titles (except for Castle Crashers <3) I love PSN titles' arty graphics like flOw, PJM, and PJE. And soon to be stuff like Fat Princess and Flower.
psn is all about quality not quantity so i think they will approve :)
Waiting for more microsoft points for this purchase...2 more days! ( i get to use the wifes points card i got her LOL) for it. I played the demo from OXM disc and greatly enjoyed my time with it. If it came to PSN i'd get it on there as well.
Hahaha of course the PS3 wants the success of BRAID, I mean the ps3 doesnt have A SINGLE game on their psn store. And im pretty sure Braids dev has a big enough gaping butthole to let the ps3 slip right in. Its so stupid that Sony wants to foster indy game development when they should outright be raping their butts like the 360 does. Creativity is for morons, If I cant use a gun or see blood its stupid. And trust me I know everything about games, I played all the Halo's.
you forgot /sarcasm Edit: HAHA stop trolling. ... ... ... you.
everyone deserves to play this amazing game.
i'd love to play it on my PS3 controller. the game seems PERFECT for a PSN release. hopefully Sony will get a clue.
See Microsoft only acquires innovative game if it puts a ton of money in their pockets. Look at Braid, 1200 MICROSOFT POINTS. Jon Blow didn't even want to charge that much on his game, but M$ insisted. They turned down MM with LBP because they didn't think it would make them much money. Now MM is ps3 friendly and their game LBP game is selling more and more after a rough start. Sony will def be interested in this title. Jonathan blow will prob make the sequel a ps3 exclusive.
