So I’ve had the PS3 for a few weeks now and the only actual PS3 game I own at the moment is a purchase off the Playstation Network (PSN) called Calling All Cars created by the guy who brought us God of War, namely David Jaffe. It’s a fun little download and it only cost $6 and it helps to tide me over until I get one of the big titles under my belt.
What’s interesting, however, is that it appears there may be more low-cost gems to be found on PSN in the not too distant future. Take, for example, the upcoming release of PAIN. A game that invites you to launch your on screen avatar from giant slingshots to see how much havoc you can cause in any of 6 game play modes including online multiplayer. See the trailer below for a quick overview of what the game is like:
Perhaps I’m easily amused, but I’m really looking forward to this game which will only be available as a purchased download through PSN. No word yet on the cost, but if it’s as reasonably priced at Calling All Cars was then I’ll definitely be picking it up. Plus they’ll be updating it in the future with new modes and additional characters, though I’ll be happy with the Mime Toss play mode alone.
