Iron Man Mini-Game Flies Onto Euro PSN This Week
Have you been playing Sodium One in PlayStation Home? If not, and you require another incentive to log in, perhaps you'll enjoy flying around as Iron Man.
According to Joystiq, Paramount Pictures and Audi have teamed up to help promote the new Iron Man 2 movie by releasing a mini-game to Home. It'll debut this Thursday, April 29, in the new Audi Space, where you can take your avatar out onto an aerial obstacle course in an effort to turn a good time. See if you can't make it onto the Leaderboard; the top 10 scores at the end of June will be rewarded with a virtual Iron Man suit you can add to your avatar's collection. In other words, it'll be plenty rare. But there's a downside...it's only coming to the European PSN, for some bizarre reason. So if you're outside of SCEE's jurisdiction, don't bother logging on and looking around for this mini-game. I suppose it's because Audi is a European company but one would have to assume that "Iron Man 2" will be a giant blockbuster in North America, so how's about breaking the rule and giving us a taste of mini-game goodness? Well, even if we don't get it, it's good to see Euro gamers getting a nod now and then.
Personally, I don't care about superhero movies but I might suck it up just because someone named Scarlett is involved. ...I'd watch her wait for a bus. Or do anything.
