Xbox Store Today: Threes, Limbo

limboboxTwo highly acclaimed indie games make their way to the Xbox One today in Microsoft’s latest Xbox Games Store update.

Threes took the mobile world by storm earlier this year and now the shifty puzzler can be played in glorious high definition on your Xbox One. A massive television screen doesn’t really do much to enhance the playability of Threes, but it surely can’t hurt…

Also available for the Xbox One today is Limbo, Playdead’s haunting monochromatic platformer that was originally released for the Xbox 360 in 2010. Xbox One owners who purchased the system on “Day One” recently received a free copy of Limbo as a thank you from Microsoft.

More information on both of these great games can be found after the break. (more…)

PSN Today: Remember Me, EDF: Insect Armageddon, Limbo Vita, more

earthdefenseforceinsectarmageddon-header

You’ll never forget today’s PlayStation Store update… and that’s not just a play on Capcom’s Remember Me! But yes, Capcom’s noirish third-person action game has been added to the PlayStation Store today alongside two fantastic games now available to download for the first time.

D3’s Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon was released for the PS3 in 2011 and a downloadable version is now available on the PlayStation Network. Shooting armored alien ants was fun two years ago and it’s still fun today.

Also available today is Playdead’s Limbo. The moody platformer was also originally released for the PS3 in 2011, but today’s re-release is for the Vita. Best of all, it’s a Cross-Buy game with the PS3 version.

More details about the above titles and a few other new releases (including Class of Heroes 2 for the PSP) can be found after the break. And the complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

Tetris, Black Ops DLC lead all PlayStation Store purchases in 2011

For over 20 years, Tetris has captivated the world. And in 2011, it sank its tetrahedronal teeth into PS3 gamers all over again as the vintage puzzler managed to outsell every other PSN game on the PlayStation Store. Sing it with me!

Doo, do do do, do do do, do do do, do do do, do do do, do, dododo.

The data comes from a Game Informer report listing the ten best-selling PSN games for 2011. Other top ten contenders include the Resident Evil 4 HD remake, the InFamous 2 standalone expansion InFamous: Festival of Blood, and Telltale’s Back to the Future adaptation.

Limbo dancing onto PSN, Steam very soon

Developer Playdead likely had to build a whole new wing in their headquarters to hold all the awards Limbo won last year. Now, it looks like the XBLA hit will soon be heading to the PC (via Steam) and the PlayStation Network.

Playdead CEO and co-founder Dino Patti confirmed the good news to Joystiq earlier today:

“This might be the second time around we have been waiting for,” Patti said, referencing his quote from last May in which he said, “You won’t see a PS3 or PC version this time around.” Patti said that “Limbo is in production for Steam and PSN, and is coming very soon.” With a release date of “very soon” he predictably said more details would be coming shortly.

Playdead is also hard at work on an original game, but they’re still not ready to talk about it just yet.
