PS3 Live Arcade?

Friday 26 May 2006
Sony could well be planning an online service similar to Xbox Live Arcade for PlayStation 3, as one developer has confirmed that it is working on a game that will be available for download when PS3 launches in November.

Developer thatgamecompany has revealed that it's porting its free - and soothingly mellow - web game Flow and that it'll be available through a service that will offer PS3 gamers downloadable casual games.

This certainly seems to suggest that Sony will indeed be trying to compete head-on with Xbox Live Arcade, which has proved extremely popular amongst Xbox 360 gamers.

Sony will officially announce more details of PS3's online service in the run up to the console's launch.
