Joe Danger Set To Debut On PSN

Anything called "Joe Danger" has got to be worth your attention. I mean...it's JOE DANGER!

The IGF-nominated title from Hello Games has been cleared to land on the PSN some time this spring, although we don't yet have a price for it. It will be exclusive to Sony's Network at first, although it wouldn't be surprising to see it end up on the XBLA and Steam at some point in the near future. Joe Danger is a side-scrolling biking game made by no more than four guys at Hello Games, which is pretty freakin' cool. As Sean Murray told Eurogamer:

"We're totally focused on getting the PS3 version out there right now. We're a tiny little team and this is a pretty big game, with some huge features like content sharing. We absolutely have our hands full, but once this is done, and if people are interested, we'd love to look at some other platforms.

We're aiming for a spring date, but with just the four of us, the common cold could delay the game. Just wish us luck."

Those four guys at Hello Games are acting as "developer, publisher and marketing" for the game, and Murray admits that, "at best, there's only one of those that we know how to do, and even that's arguable." He adds that Sony has been really helpful in getting Joe Danger prepared for the PSN, though; it's something we've heard from other small designers, too. We can't wait to give another original, entertaining downloadable title a try.

4 people only? If a game studio = snack, then Hello Games would be even smaller than bite-sized. Still, very impressive.

This game looks SO awesome. I watched a video of it on the PlayStation Blog and it looks like this generation's Excitebike. I've been holding off on purchases on the PS Store because I've spent a little too much in the last year but this game will definitely be a day one buy for me.

Greed Corp is fun, and flying way under the radar.

Wat's next, Joe the Plumber? I thought the Wii already got an iconic plumber.

They had a small segment showing the game off on the GTTV episode of GoW3; the gameplay and overall presentation make it very appealing (at least to me). Definitely in my radar for PSN titles this year.

Looks like Excitebike meets LBP. I'll be checking this out when it reaches the PSN.

off topic: guys, if you dont want anything spoiled for you, dont read the review for God of war 3 in the playstation official mag, it mentions some things that arent huge spoilers, but its stuff id have rather found out on my own

on topic, this game looks fun

Thanks for the heads up. I don't know why it's difficult for some reviewers to not spoil things.

like i said, nothing too major but if you're like me, you don't wanna know anything thing dealing with the story until it hits you while playing.

they did give it a perfect score of 5 out of 5 stars though

Whoa. That pic has me interested. If it sparks the same fun that Excitebike did on the NES then I'm all for it.

If some of the people in psxtreme cares...theres yakuza 4 demo! on the jp store, the graphs and animations aren't AAA but still they are better than Yakuza 3.. so give it a try!

p.s warning the demo has like 40 min of cutscenes
to skip cutscenes go to options and look for:

エベントスキップ (event skip)

and change the option from なし to あり

so you can skip them with the start button.
