Braid Confirmed For PSN
It's arguably the best Xbox Live Arcade downloadable exclusive out there...except it won't be exclusive for much longer.
The news first broke a few days ago when German website USK rated Braid for the PlayStation Network; the USK is like the ESRB here in the U.S. as they give age restriction classification for video games in that region. The rating in question reads: "Released without an age restriction under section 14." Now, this can't really be construed as an official announcement, but that announcement wasn't long in coming. A Hothead Games representative confirmed with IGN that Braid was indeed coming to the PSN. We don't have a release date or price just yet, but we assume that information will come about within the next few months, and all you avid PSN users should be excited. We've got our fantastic exclusives, too (Wipeout HD, echochrome, Shatter, Fat Princess, etc.), but the addition of Braid shouldn't be seen as anything but positive. It remains one of the best received and most popular downloadable titles out there, and we really can't wait to get our hands on it.
We'll let you know when Hothead delivers the release information but in the meantime, feel free to check out some Braid reviews. You won't find a negative one.
