Rumor: Braid Headed To The PSN?

If you're not familiar, Braid is a fantastic downloadable game currently exclusive to the XBLA, and it's one that PlayStation Network users would appreciate having.

As posited by ThePlayStationNetwork, there may be a chance that Braid eventually makes its way to the PSN. Hothead Games is the publisher of the game (they also published those Penny Arcade Adventures titles that were on both the XBLA and PSN), and they have recently acquired the rights to produce Braid for the PC and Mac. Well, it seems fair to assume that with these rights, they could easily put the game on the Network, right? Again, if you're not a XBLA subscriber and you haven't heard about Braid before, we suggest checking on a few recent reviews. It really is a cool little game and should appeal to plenty of different fans; anything that averages a 93 at Metacritic ought to be worth your attention, right? And if you're a fan of artistry and creativity, and you've enjoyed titles like Flower, then this quote in a Braid review should intrigue you:

"Braid is beautiful, entertaining and inspiring. It stretches both intellect and emotion, and these elements dovetail beautifully rather than chaffing against each other. Still wondering if games can be art? Here's your answer." -- Eurogamer

Heck, you should be inspired by those words right there. So here's hoping that the game does arrive on the Network at some point in the near future; if Hothead does announce it, we'll let you know soon after. The PSN has been expanding at an excellent rate, and we could always use another awesome, innovative title!

About time, this game is great. I played this game on my crappy 360 more than most of the full retail games for the system. I hope it sees a price reduction for the PSN.

Well, I have my doubts about a PSN version ever arriving. However, my PC should handle the PC version that's definitely on the way.

I heard this rumor awhile ago on eXophase.
This is one game that I actualy want to experience on the 360 besides the original Dead Rising.
