.detuned Available Tomorrow on PSN for $2.99

Rusty Buchert's Avatar + Posted by Rusty Buchert on Oct 14, 2009 // Sr. Producer, Sony Santa Monica Studios

Hi everyone, it’s Rusty Buchert from SCEA’s Santa Monica Studios again. I just wanted check in and let you know that .detuned will be available for download from the PlayStation Network beginning tomorrow for $2.99! For those of you that aren’t familiar with .detuned, it is another experiment with the demoscene and was made by .theprodukkt. (yes, there is supposed to be a period at the beginning of the name), who are located in Germany and have been a very influential group in the scene for over a decade.

So what the heck is .detuned? It isn’t exactly a game or an art piece like Linger in Shadows. It is a user-driven music visualizer that allows you to create your own visual performance to accompany your favorite music tracks on the XMB, simply by using the SIXAXIS controller to manipulate and interact with objects within a scene. It also has its own music and a performance you can watch, too!

So, for those of you wanting a different experience on the PS3, get your creative juices flowing now. I highly recommend downloading this tomorrow to have some fun.

This seems a lot more useful than “Linger in Shadows”. If you guys have it up on Amazon’s PSN hub, I’ll gladly buy it.

Awesome, yeah this does seem to be more “useful” than Linger in Shadows, which was a unique experience anyway. Good pricing btw! :)

OMG yes! thank you. I have been waiting for this forever. It got put on the Japanese store a while back but I wanted to wait until it came to the Canadian store. I love this demoscene stuff, Linger In Shadows was amazing, had I known you were releasing it tomorrow I would have bought a PSN card when I picked up Uncharted 2 last night.

I only have 1$ in my virtual wallet, plus my credit card doesn’t work with the PSN because of a fonctionality it doesn’t have… Stupid credit card… I have to buy a 20$ pre-paid card, but it is “expensive”!
