Sony and PlayDead has released the first Trailer of Limbo for PlayStation Network.
So limbo coming to ps3 afterall?!? so much for ''only on xboxlive''
How old is it now?
Doesn't mean we won't enjoy it like the first time 360 users played it. Just another game for us to play. And don't have to wish it was september already.
A good game doesn't get old. Heck I'm gonna start playing FFVI today :P
@Corepred4 You're right. When Limbo was announced only for Xbox you had to wish it was 1-2 years later already so you could play it. I'd rather wish it was a few months away instead of years, but what ever makes you fanboys giggle I suppose. @finnhima - What are you babbling about? Who's upset that Limbo is coming out on PSN and Steam? The only people bringing up Xbox are the 12 year old fanboys who bring up their "Timed exclusives" comments.
In exchange for this 360 should get flower or maybe even Journey.
@ AntoineDcoolette What's next Flow and Superstardust HD ? will never happen.
That's why when anything is announced xbox exclusive but is not made by MS I know it won't be exclusive.
Hows Left 4 Dead, Gears Of War, Splinter Cell Conviction working out for you on PS3 then? In other news, Limbo is an amazing game and everyone should give it a go. I played it a ton last year. I didn't realize people tried to talk trash on arcade titles exclusivity...lol
Looking forward to playing it Raven. And I don't think theres much trash talk on arcade titles. That would be extreme fanboys I guess
@Raven_Nomad: I honestly wouldn't be surprized if Valve announce a L4D collection for PS3 later this year. With Steamworks it's looks likely....you know because unlike Microsoft being selfish with Live, Sony let Valve do it. As for the other two...meh the PS3 has got enough titles I think it will survive without Gears and Spilnter Cell (even though we have a HD collection)
The ironic part of your statement is that none of those games are exclusive to the 360 as they're also available on PC.
Raven_Nomad, please...how about the glut that did work out for him....his list would be a lot longer than yours plus i thought you guys didnt like exclusives anymore but yeah, good for all gamers as ive already completed it and the hype was totally justified.. this and braid are probably two of my best 'was only on xbox' games. I wasnt a fan of trials hd but i respect it and kinda preferred it over joe danger.
. Getting a game years later is now reason to celebrate...O_o I think it's great that the game is going to the PS3. btw...Why hasn't Ubisoft ported Conviction over to the PS3??? That's weird since they are getting the collectors HD thing. :/ Conviction was a great game and that fanbase is definitely missing out. Of course, where is MGS4 for 360, minus the gb stealing cut scenes??? maybe one day. It sure is coincidental the way those 2 franchises seem to go head to head...for example, the HD version of the older MGS games are coming to 360..0_o
@ Inside_out the video speaks for it self to back you up. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Just another game that, despite being decent, had no reason as being touted as "exclusive" much less buying a 360 for. The delay likely a negative to the game maker in terms of sales while only giving MS an artificial PR ego boost which now makes them seem a bit silly.
Oh please, you think it was exclusive for the time being because MS thought people would by an Xbox JUST for Limbo? Give me a break. It was part of there annual "Summer of Arcade" which MS releases a bunch of exclusive arcade titles on Xbox. MS wants to keep it that way, so if Limbo was multi at the time, that wouldn't be the case. You kids dream up the stupidest shit.
What I think hardly changes the fact that the game was announced as "exclusive." An apparent merit for which to buy or own the console. Stardust HD isn't any reason to buy a PS3, but some of its technical effects show what the system is capable of. Is something to find rewarding once you buy a PS3. By contrast another 360 example is Geometry Wars. A game that's been on every other system but the PS3 just for the sake of not being on it. Possibly because of some clause in the original MS contract.
Another timed exclusive from Xbox =O.
Great game! I highly recommend all PS3 and PC owners to buy this unique game.
Is it that good? I heard it was too short? But that won't matter if is the right price. I brought Flower and was satisfied with it.
I'm wondering if it's worth full price aswell. Hopefully PS+ will get a discount.
It's about 3-4 hours long. It gets quite challenging towards the end though, which is nice. Not much replay value unless you're into searching for hidden items and stuff.
Too much epicosity!!
It's a very stylish game every gamer should play, one of the best arcade titles on xbox. Your in for a treat guys.
what'd you prefer. this or braid. I know they're so different but these 2 games are very good
Limbo, really didn't give Braid a chance if I'm honest. Just screamed Mario at me, which I knew was unfair but I couldn't get passed the demo. Limbo's art style grabbed me from the moment I saw it.
Why is it so dark? Is the whole game like that?
Yes, it's part of the artstyle, it's supposed to feel depressing.
I see your avatar and already I'm depressed :P
Oh ok, thanks..Guess I'll skip this one. I don't play games to feel depressed.
@TenSteps You shouldn't be. Rainbow Dash makes your life 20% cooler in 10 seconds flat ffs!
@ FlintGREY I know what you mean. I like my games to have a certain numbing quality as well, as gaming has always been a form of escapism I seek out. But if a piece of software is able to provoke true emotion (be it joy, depression or anxiety) I cannot wait to plunge in and let the game lead the way. The same goes for movies. Transformers, Pirates, awesome to watch, but nowhere near as strong an experience as Antichrist or Naked. It's been a long year waiting for this timed exclusive bull to expire. Luckily this time it was rather predictable they would bring a port to PSN (Playdead being a small European dev, Limbo being their first product, Live fanbase not the best focus group imaginable) so I knew we were in for a treat this summer.
@SonyNGP Awwwww Yeeeaaahhh! You Know it Man! *brohoof*
I haven't seen a game this atmospheric since Silent Hill 2.
Cool, i'm just a bit undecided. Steam or PSN... Always wanted to play this game.
There is a user created level in littlebigplanet 2 that tributes limbo as well.
Very cool, will probably get this on steam.
i beat this game 1 time and so did my ex gf, i gotta say, its not worth the buy, cause once its beat its not very useful... trust me, i attempted to play a few more times afterwards and just couldnt bare to waste my time on it anymore, sadly.
Awesome game, OK, Whos Next? Gears?
Yeah, you guys are going to like this one. I remember buying it during the summer of arcade last year. It's an awesome puzzle game, but it's pretty short unfortunately.
Over a year old, but a fun game nontheless. Waiting for Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet though, XBLA release this summer, maybe summer 2012 for PSN, who knows!
Looking forward to it. Th PC version comes out in August Woohooo. After playing Braid with my gf - I hope she likes this.
