Idol Minds PS3 Exclusive Still Alive, Will Be An Action Title

With over half of Idol Minds’ development team supposedly fired last year, it has been a tough time for the PAIN developer, who were thought to be developing a PS3 exclusive game, and a multiplatform title. But funding seems to have returned to the developer as they are once again hiring for the PS3 exclusive, with the job listings hinting at what the game might include.

Indubitably, they're generally a great thing.

PS3 is an exclusive farm.

BigPete79784706d ago

I agree, the amount of exclusives on the system is amazing.

ftwrthtx4706d ago

The exclusives help set the PS3 apart from all other consoles.

Masterchef20074706d ago

Which is why people like me buy the PS3. Because most of the games that i like can only be played on Sonys console. Oh and i play multiplats as well and enjoy them very much.

NJShadow4706d ago

Nice! I know exclusive doesn't necessarily mean good, but boy, I'm still looking forward to this.

doctorstrange4706d ago

PAIN was fun but very shallow, hopefully this has depth

ShabbaRanks4706d ago

Its still fun... Every 6 months I play it with friends and its crazy, but I does need more depth...

Masterchef20074706d ago

Nice the more exclusives the better well at least not for my wallet.

PAIN Going Free-To-Play On PlayStation 3

Sony and Argentina-based developer QB9 are “reinventing” Pain, first launched on PlayStation 3 via PlayStation Network in 2007, as a free-to-play title, Sony announced at its Brazil Game Show today.

hmm cool I guess. never played it before so guess i cna try this version out.

Surprised there is no PS4 and/ or PSV version while they were at it.

But cool, will check it out since its free.

PoSTedUP3780d ago

its tons of fun. ive spent hours upon hours on this game back in the day.

Monkeycan83780d ago

Haha it's a blast. It was my first downloaded game ever.

Its theme is good too :P

P.A.I.N, P.A.I.N. PAIN!

FunAndGun3780d ago

Super OOCH!...ooch, ooch, ooch...

WeAreLegion3780d ago

Haha. I highly recommend it to anyone who has never played. So much fun.

5eriously3780d ago

I need some PAIN! Help.

No reason not to give it a try! I am sure my kids will enjoy it immensely!

GenericNameHere3780d ago

It was fun... But then I was bomblasted by billions of updates that took freaking weeks to download. I gave up then.

Afreelunch3779d ago

Yeah they released sooo many updates, and so many levels and modes that were locked behind paywalls, it took up waay too much hard drive space for what it was, and felt like I payed for a free-to-play game anyway. It was fun, but not fun enough for me to keep paying/downloading.

-EvoAnubis-3780d ago

PAIN should have ALWAYS been free-to-play.

Idol Minds, Please Make PAIN 2

If you’ve never heard or played PAIN, the game essentially gives you a giant slingshot and a character to fling around a giant map filled with random objects to cause pain to your character.

ThatKanadianKid3857d ago

Soooo many memories with this game, please do make a sequel I'll buy it day zero.

Prcko3857d ago

pain was so fun and addictive game
i want new one too!

Godmars2903857d ago

Sadly, isn't the only thing left of that studio is some of the senior staff and it's CEO?

Has been a while since I played it. Just haven't felt like - thought of - reinstalling it since replacing my PS3 from YLoD.

doctorstrange3857d ago

Yup, massively downsized and making iOS titles :(
