Close out the Winter with PSN’s Spring Fever

Grace Chen's Avatar + Posted by Grace Chen on Feb 11, 2009 // Director, PlayStation Store

Spring Fever Flower

Even though the Punxsutawney Groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter, PlayStation Network has already caught Spring Fever. To help spread our excitement, we’re launching “PSN Spring Fever” on PlayStation Store to celebrate the exceptional PlayStation Network games and exclusive content on tap to launch in the next few months. And unlike the “official” Groundhog prediction, Spring for us starts tomorrow with the launch of Flower from thatgamecompany.

In addition to current PSN exclusive hits like PixelJunk Eden, PAIN and flOw, you can look forward to several other highly anticipated games such as Flower, Noby Noby Boy, Burn Zombie Burn and The Punisher: No Mercy to name a few. And with these exclusive blockbusters launching on a weekly basis, we’ll offer the best downloadable games lineup around. A few of the titles include:

  • Flower
  • Noby Noby Boy
  • No Gravity
  • Wheel of Fortune
  • Burn Zombie Burn
  • Ragdoll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic
  • The Punisher: No Mercy
  • In addition to these titles, PlayStation Network will also be launching Bomberman Ultra, Flock, Comet Crash, Watchmen and many more during this timeframe.
  • Plus the existing blockbuster, exclusive titles already on PlayStation Network such as Crash Commando, Savage Moon, Echochrome, Pixel Junk Eden, PAIN, Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty and more!

PlayStation Store is launching a dedicated “PSN Spring Fever” section featuring games, trailers, and themes available for download with the launch of Flower. And the PlayStation Blog will have weekly posts of developer diaries to show a behind-the-scenes look at some of these great titles.

Check out the dedicated “PSN Spring Fever” section on the PlayStation Store or catch additional PlayStation updates in an upcoming bi-weekly edition of PULSE.

Damn, my wanted PSN games list is far bigger than my wanted Blu Ray PS3 games list… how ironic.

I wish PSN cards come out where I live. I gotta pay 30 dollars for a 25 dollar prepaid credit card den I gotta pay %15 percent tax then PSN won’t let me tranfer a custom amount to my PSN wallet unless i’m buying something so i’m stuck with 4 dollars on my prepaid card.

When will Canada get Video store?

+ Fallen_Guardian on February 11th, 2009 at 9:09 am said:

@Jakinov, join Europe, they don’t have PSN tickets at all, 90% of the people who want to download PSN titles can’t even download them, plus we don’t have Video store either. The US is the only one that has video store, I don’t know why the heck its taking so long for the local Sony companies to legalize it, but I’m pretty sure we’re not gonna see the Video Store before 2012 in the benelux.

By the way, no Fat Princess?

Spring Fever sounds like a pricing promotion lol

+ Fersis on February 11th, 2009 at 9:20 am said:

Woooow, lots of cool games comming!
Flower and Nobi Nobi Boi are mustbuys for me.
Awesome.

Also, could you guys make some magic and ease the process to buy stuff from South America? . :(

+ Kenshin71 on February 11th, 2009 at 9:23 am said:

Good lineup but would like to see Dead Rising released on the PSN since the sequel is coming out on PS3 and the other two consoles have the original. Also try releasing HSG5 on PSN, this would sell a lot I think.

+ Berae on February 11th, 2009 at 9:26 am said:

Is it me or i didnt see one of the most important… Fat Princess? :)

+ SDkngsht on February 11th, 2009 at 9:27 am said:

HELL YEAH! i haven’t even heard of some of these coming to the PSN but i’m excited for a few of them.

Flower, Wheel of Fortune, Punisher, Worms (YES!), Bomberman (In HD? HELL YES!) and Diner Dash like CLASSIC Diner Dash? def good news.

now all i need to hear is that Pixel Junk Monsters 2 is coming and the PSN is officially the greatest online selection EVER.:)

+ Sig-gotyouth on February 11th, 2009 at 9:28 am said:

looks like Ill be topping up my account with another few hundred $. I do agree with one poster though. There are maybe 10 PSN titles Im excited for and only 5 Pre-ordered retail discs… maybe its a change of the times.

+ FoolKiller79 on February 11th, 2009 at 9:32 am said:

Worms? Woohoo!!! I bought Open Warfare 2 for my PSP just because there wasn’t a PSN version.

I cannot wait to start throwing exploding grannies, mad cows, super sheep, Holy Handgrenades, and concrete donkeys at people!!!

Awesome!

The developer interviews for these smaller titles are a great watch.

Loved watching the Flower one, so please Grace/Jeff and the rest of the blog team do as many as possible :)

Nice to know the faces behind some of the smaller games.

+ reson8er on February 11th, 2009 at 9:46 am said:

Thanks Grace.

It would be really great if these titles offered trial or demo versions so we could get a feel for the eclectic but oh so awesome PSN titles.

PSN Demo page in the store. Even though there are not too many demos for PSN titles. The ones that do should be given a highlighted section.

great games indeed, I can’t wait to play them all.


41

+ Asshandler on February 11th, 2009 at 10:07 am said:

Why hasn’t Dark Mist come to the NA Store as of yet? My friend downloaded it off the Hong Kong Store, and it’s great, and entirely in English, and is a first-party game.

It makes no sense.

How about a “Spring” Sale. Have a few games at $4.99


47

+ DMeisterJ on February 11th, 2009 at 10:16 am said:

Does ‘spring fever’ apply to PS1 games too?


48

+ Akirakirimaru on February 11th, 2009 at 10:18 am said:

Bomberman Ultra / Worms / Flower / New Mahjong booster pack = PSN

SF IV / Killzone 2 = PS3

Great Games This spring = $

Being an avid gamer = Broke.

+ Bildo818 on February 11th, 2009 at 10:19 am said:

HAHAHAHA Its does say sping!

LOL

I agree with the PSN vs. BR disc games. I own many blu-rays, but my PSN titles are growing. I cannot get enough of QUALITY games for 5-10 bucks. I did however buy wipeout HD but thats a given! Keep these games maxed out at 10 bucks and you will see a ton sold Sony.

Flower for 10 bucks? SOLD, Flower for 15 bucks, no thanks!

What about that trivial pursuit game I heard about? Flower, worms and bomberman are purchases I look forward to making

+ Bildo818 on February 11th, 2009 at 10:20 am said:

@45, I agree with a Sale…there are some PSN titles I would buy for 5 bucks on sale. In fact I am waiting for them to be on sale to purchase them :-)
