DeathSpank, Shank Cleared For Launch On PSN, XBLA

We always need original experiences in downloadable format, which is why we're happy to hear about the eventual addition of two more unique titles to the PSN and XBLA.

As reported by Joystiq, EA Partners has announced an exclusive agreement to put Hothead Games' DeathSpank and Klei Entertainment's Shank on the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Marketplace, and PC. Well, the PC will get Shank but it seems DeathSpank will only go to the PSN and XBLA. These are two games you won't want to miss, just because they're so damn loopy. Said EA Partners outreach director Jamil Moledina:

"Our mission at EA Partners is to work with the best talent across the game industry, and we are thrilled to extend our expertise to the leading creative developers in downloadable indie games. DeathSpank is engrossingly fun and hysterically funny ... and Shank is an amazing experience."

EA Partners is already responsible for giving us the likes of Rock Band, Left 4 Dead and Brutal Legend, but this is their first foray into the realm of digital downloads. One of the games, Shank, was recently named as a finalist at the Independent Games Festival and we're hoping it'll prove to be a worthwhile experience when it arrives. We don't have an expected release date for either game just yet but that's okay; while we anxiously await thatgamecompany's new title, we certainly need other indie devs to pick up the slack for the PSN.

Looking forward to these. I don't mind too much on when they are out either. Still have to get around to lots of stuff, anyway. Haven't even started Heavy Rain yet.

I feel you on that one. We've only gotten through the introduction of HR because the wife has been sick. Being considerate means I've got to wait just to go through one completion.

Honestly I haven't had much time for Psn games. With all the wonderful ps3 games out there it just hasn't been a priority to download these type of games. Plus considering i grew up in a house without video games, I have a considerable amount of catch up to do and for 10-15 bucks I can pick up some classics.

Hmmm,
Both sound interesting, but I'd have to at least, see some trailers first

dont ask me why but this reminds me of Looney Tunes: Sheep Raider.
loved that game so much, a instant classic!
o what i would give to see that onto the PSN store so i can start playing it on my psp.
sony really need to get their act together the amount of ps1 classics on the AU PSN store is laughable!

By the sound of those names I'm guessing this is going to have the AO rating.

Ok, I didnt read the article, I just wanted to make a joke.
