Braid Graces PSN On November 12
The PSN is home to some of the most unique and rewarding experiences of the generation, and most all for a bargain price. Well, yet another must-try downloadable title is headed your way very soon.
It's the critically acclaimed Braid, the former Xbox 360 exclusive that received rave reviews and became one of the most cherished little titles of the generation. We knew Hothead Games would be bringing the game to the PS3 at some point but today, we have the official press release that gives us the finalized date: November 12. This applies to North America as the European version will be "announced shortly." If you're not familiar, Braid has you controlling the hero, Tim, who must work his way through the beautifully designed and wonderfully artistic world he inhabits. It's basically a puzzle/platformer of sorts that may be best compared to the recently released Trine (only without the combat and RPG elements) and actually has you manipulate time to your advantage. The release describes it this way; it's worth reading:
"In each world, you have a different power to affect the way time behaves, including the ability to rewind, create parallel realities and utilize time dilation to overcome the many obstacles in your path. There is no filler in this game; every puzzle shows you something new and interesting about the game world."
They didn't provide us with a price but we'll take a shot in the dark and say it might cost $14.99. Trine was $19.99 and other recent PSN titles were $9.99 so we'll take the middle road and make an estimation. However, it's hardly a guess to assume that Braid will immediately become one of the best downloadable titles on the PSN. Something else you need to buy this month! HA!
