Fat Princess: Worth the Weight (Here’s the Date)

Deborah Mars's Avatar Posted by on Jul 27, 2009 // Managing Producer, SCEA Santa Monica Studio

Without further ado, we’re proud to announce that Fat Princess will make her royal appearance on the PlayStation Network this Thursday, July 30th for $14.99.

Fat Princess will be released simultaneously worldwide in N. America, Europe and Asia. A Japan release is also in the works, and we’ll have more information on that in weeks to come.

The sheer amount of questions submitted was fantastic, and we really appreciate everyone taking the time and effort to come up with some really good ones.

Please check out this interview with Chris Millar and Craig Leigh from Titan Studios for answers to your most burning questions. We’ll do our best to follow up and respond to some of the others we weren’t able to cover during the interview soon.

We mean it…see you on the battlefield soon!

Videos for some reason now longer work for me on the blog. When I click on them they just flash. I’m using Windows Vista and latest FF.

I’ve been waiting for this for a long time now. I’m really looking forward to finally being able to play this weekend.

I really like how they make it easy for friends to congregate in a given game instance — I wish more games would think the social aspects through. I also very much appreciate their CB radio-style approach with voice chat and being able to report haters.

None of my questions got answered, though. Maybe the second time will be the charm?

1. What’s the quality (bitrate/codec) of native the audio assets? For $15, I would really hope it’s 24-bit and/or lossless.

2. Is the game 1080p native? If not, what’s the native resolution and is FSAA applies in the upscaling to 1080p?

3. Will there be a level editor pack introduced like there was for Cuboid?

4. For $15 I’m also hoping for a Platinum trophy like @INTVGene mentioned. Does it have one?

Depending on the answer to the audio quality, I may buy this in a few weeks when I’m done getting trophies in Shatter, Astro Tripper, Rag-Doll Kung-Fu, and Unreal Tournament 3. I’m also hoping that Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition makes it onto PSN, so I’m trying to avoid purchases for the next month or so just in case :)

now im kinda disappointed that i just bought the battlefield 1943 game and killzone 2 map pack… i dont like buying a bunch of games at one time, but i cant turn down this game so ill just have to spend a little bit more… damn… only if u could have said a date sooner


+ EmpireNO on July 27th, 2009 at 2:33 pm said:

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!


+ katsuo7171 on July 27th, 2009 at 2:56 pm said:

Eh, I wish I could buy it, but I just spent 15 bucks on BF 1943. I only have 11 bucks left in my wallet…. I’ll see what I can do, but I doubt a first day purchase.

Will you guys be doing a summer sale?


+ The_Punisher111 on July 27th, 2009 at 3:03 pm said:

+ BUBA_jeff on July 27th, 2009 at 3:29 pm said:

what about the fat priness on the PSP?


+ dagundam on July 27th, 2009 at 3:31 pm said:

NO.there will NOT be local multiplayer.

All because all the fans here on the blog have not been Loud enough about.

You guys keep asking about DLC, blah blah blah.

DLC WONT MATTER if you aren’t good with the basic game in the first place.

Seriously, It’s not that I’m hating the game.I’ve played it and LOVED it. But seriously I hope you guys realize, in time, the importance of local multiplayer.

NOONE has money for 2 PS3s at home! What if I want to play with my brother SITTING RIGHT NEXT TO ME??

Why do you think Halo did really good? Because 4 people could get on one XBOX!!…

sighs.. i’ll get flamed for sounding so extreme and STILL won’t be heard…


+ Jedah_PR on July 27th, 2009 at 3:37 pm said:

Great news… now I have a problem. I only have $30.00 on my PSN account, and if this game is coming out this thursday, and I think Trine is coming out this week too… I have a tough decision to make.


+ Berae on July 27th, 2009 at 3:39 pm said:

This is Great!!

Help me fix my account so i can buy this game and trine this thursday


+ Thrasher20 on July 27th, 2009 at 3:42 pm said:

About $5 more than I was hoping for, but I’m glad it’ll finally be out.

+ meatwadsicle on July 27th, 2009 at 4:16 pm said:

+ billabongdude on July 27th, 2009 at 4:28 pm said:

+ billabongdude on July 27th, 2009 at 4:34 pm said:

Looking thru the comments and wow some people are soooo cheap 15$ thats a good deal! some add ons are like 10 bucks! 5$ more and oh u got an AWESOME (looking game since i never got the beta :( ) GAME!


+ ZemaOner on July 27th, 2009 at 4:36 pm said:

Everything in this game is appealing to me, especially the artwork. Definitely a release day purchase!


+ Progz on July 27th, 2009 at 4:39 pm said:

oh boy.

cant wait!

Some things that were left out I hope they add:

+ Keyboard support during ingame? (that would be nice, if you dont have a micorphone besides using ingame taunts) many people have a keyboard for their computer…so Im sure that would help some people out

+Custom soundtracks? Cmon how can you say thats not important? I dont wanna listen to that [DELETED} ingame music. You might like it but I doubt im gunna. I wanna listen to young jeezy while a rip up people apart!


+ MrBeatdown on July 27th, 2009 at 4:50 pm said:

At $10, I would have risked it, but for $15 I won’t. I buy full retail games at that price. I want a demo before I spend that much. I’m sure the game is good, but I need to know I’ll like it.

I hope there is a demo this Thursday or at least soon after. I was interested in Crash Commando at release but the lack of a demo made me pass. When the demo came out a few months later, it was no longer worth the price to me so I ended up waiting for a sale.

I’m more than willing to spend $15 if I like it, but if there is no demo, I won’t buy it.


+ turtlecatperson on July 27th, 2009 at 4:56 pm said:

wait is the ps3 and psp version coming out july 30th?


+ AngleofDeath696 on July 27th, 2009 at 5:04 pm said:

If anyone wants to know, here’s the trophy list: http://www.thesixthaxis.com/forum/ps3-trophies-psn-download-games/fat-princess-1/

Here’s how to do improvised custom soundtracks:

Mute the BGM and play your own music at your place.

Stop whining.

Stop complaining.

Does Europe include an Australia release?


+ LordRaoh on July 27th, 2009 at 6:44 pm said:

Video not working. All t does is flash a white screen, then flash a still image from the video, when i can press play its goes back to flashing on and off..

either way i cant wait to get this game.

+ stlthriot on July 27th, 2009 at 7:14 pm said:

Totally excited for this game! Played the beta and loved it!
I just hope there are lots of different environment types and stages of each. A level editor could be cool… build one side and then the other side is just a reflection so it would be fair and like the pre-made levels. :D
Also, hope to see more job types eventually. :)

Oh, and random side note for anyone incharge of changes to the XMB… there needs to be little flags next to the user name so you can see where your new/current friends are from. Kind of like how Crash Commando shows when you look for friends online. :D

yay happy birthday to me! :) comes out on my birthday


+ gold5225 on July 27th, 2009 at 7:36 pm said:

Yea Im gonna buy it this Thursday.


+ SHINSPIKES on July 27th, 2009 at 7:47 pm said:

Hey Hey Jeff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you ask them my question? Besides building up your defense for your fortress. Is there any individual types of defense for your single character?? Like, can the warrior have a shield?


+ sparced on July 27th, 2009 at 7:56 pm said:

No Platinum trophy! Why does only WipEout, Warhawk and Socom get it when obviously Battlefield 1943 and Fat Princess have equally high full retail release standard.

I would rather pay more for both those games if it was need for them to be deemed worthy of a full trophy pack.


+ nerdmanwhippy on July 27th, 2009 at 7:57 pm said:

I’m sorry I can’t help but confess my disappointment with the playstation community at the time. Nobody complained about BF1942’s price being 15$, and yet here comes fat princess, an actual original ideal, and people bash it for a “high price”.

I’m sorry you can’t compare a straight up multi-player game’s price to a single player game price. Not only that, but something fresh and that looks like aa quality.

I can’t wait to buy this, and I won’t even hesitate with the price. That being said, kudos to a very soon release date :D


+ PoloM29 on July 27th, 2009 at 8:06 pm said:

whuuu bout time!! I wish i could make it a day one purchase but i dont get paid till friday, sadly…..

Anyways ill see you guys stuffing that lil princess with cake on friday!!
