Detuned, Trash Panic Spotted For PSN
Have you had enough top-notch downloadable titles on the PlayStation Network yet? No? flOw and Flower weren't enough? Okay, here's some more-
As you can see on this South African Sony press release, several new titles that haven't been in the headlines are on the way to the PlayStation Store. They're right there at the top and while we realize this isn't a U.S. release, we have to assume that such titles will eventually go worldwide (or at least to North America). That Detuned one should really start to gain some attention once Sony decides to issue an official press release for this region. If you just don't feel like clicking on the above link, here's the description:
"Music lovers: prepare for an abstract and surreal interactive gaming experience like no other. Set the scene for your favourite music tracks by uploading them to Detuned, the game that lets you make visual accompaniments for your favourite music track. The only thing limiting you is your imagination: upload your tracks and use your DUALSHOCK®3 or SIXAXIS™ wireless controller to manipulate what you see. The human character and his surrounding scenery may appear normal at first – but you’ll realise just how warped you can make this musical world!"
How cool does that sound? And there's Trash Panic, which just sounds totally nutty. Are we directing...garbage? Or better yet, avoiding the garbage...? It's imaginative and creative, and that's what we get a lot of on the PSN, so we ain't gonna complain. Stay tuned for more on these games; hopefully, they'll be confirmed for North America and Europe at some point soon.
