LIMBO coming to PSN

There aren’t a lot of games that GamesRadar awards a 10-out-of-10 review score. But LIMBO joined  the perfect score club, with the likes of God of War 3, StarCraft II and Portal 2, when the platformer/puzzler released on Xbox LIVE last July. Now, it looks like LIMBO’s ready to share some artsy indie love with PlayStation 3 owners via PSN nearly one year after the mesmerizing masterpiece originally launched.



News of the platformer’s jump to the PS3 comes from the Korean Rating Board via GameSetWatch, which claims that Sony Computer Entertainment Korea has rated the game as 15+. While world of the possibility of LIMBO making its way to PSN soon isn’t surprising, it sure is welcome. What did you think of LIMBO and its film noir-ish art style? Was it as incredible as we said it was in our review?

    "There aren’t a lot of games that GamesRadar awards a 10-out-of-10 review score" Was that a joke? GR give out 10s like hot dinners, mostly to games that don't deserve them at all. I reckon the give more 10s in a year than EDGE has given in their entire history.

    Hmmm, I'm afraid this might be too little too late. All of my PS3-only friends have already played through Limbo on my 360 and are unlikely to buy it now. Hope it does well though, it deserves the support!

    Christ, can't Microsoft hold on to anything that isn't Halo and Gears?

    Better late than never, I saw. After all the great things I've heard, I'm looking forward to this <3

    Well, there is a good reason to get it if you own only a PS3, like me :P And yeah, getting it years later is kinda shitty, but welcome regardless. I played castle crashers when it arrived to the PS3, and the game was as amazing as it was back when it was released for the XBLA. I don't care if they arrive later, so long as they actually arrive. That being said... if you are interested playing a game only while the hype is hot.... That honestly doesn't speak very well of you...

    Yup, wasn't impressed by Braid, but this does look a smidge more interesting than Braid did.

    It's nice to see another success coming to the PSN but however I don't see why to get it. Like Braid, the hype and praise is gone. It's like having 2 friends having a party on the same day. Instead of try to go to both or combine them, you spend the full day with one friend and give the gift and wishes way after the party been clean up. Sorry LIMBO and Braid, If you want my PSN dollars, should come here sooner.

    I hear Limbo compared to Braid all the time, but how similar are they really? I hate the hell out of Braid, so I'm not sure if I should look into Limbo.

    @SuspendedIrrelevance: How about the term "nerdantic" for getting uptight about these nerdy things? I got Braid once it came to PSN, and never played it much. Limbo will probably be the same, unfortunately.

    @NJGamers: Most people would ponder the ending of a game AFTER completing it, not prior. btw, the other members of the pedantic society say hi :P OT, This would be quite cool. I bought Braid after being alerted to the £7->£2 discount by GR last week (thanks for that!), and while I haven't completed it, I've played through the levels, and it is certainly nice, albeit shorter than I was expecting... I need to wait until I get my head in the right gear to play it though, or it'll just irritate me. Now... to deal with this reCaptcha, which appears to be in Russian. f*** me.
  • NJGamers - June 29, 2011 11:14 p.m.

    an amazing game regardless of its length its a game that kept me thinking about the ending for a few days prior to my completion of it ill probably et it again on psn it was that good.
  • Kirol - June 29, 2011 10:55 p.m.

    Meh, played it online. They'd best extend it or price it right.
  • ThatFanInThePeacoat - June 30, 2011 5:05 a.m.

    I highly recommend this to those with a PS3. It's quite the experience.
  • MyCoolWhiteLies - June 30, 2011 12:17 a.m.

    Awesome. I already have it on the Xbox, but anything to give these devs more money to make more stuff. Also, you guys give out kind of a lot of 10s. Just saying.
  • UsernameLoser - June 29, 2011 11:25 p.m.

    I've played the demo, but never actually got around to buy it.
