Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse Coming to PSN

Chris Schmidt's Avatar + Posted by Chris Schmidt on Mar 11, 2010 // PR Manager, Telltale Games

Hello PlayStation friends! We’re Telltale, and we make awesome episodic adventure games! You may know of our work – Tales of Monkey Island, Strong Bad, and Wallace & Gromit are a few of our recent titles – but we’ve never launched a game on the illustrious PlayStation 3. Until now, that is! Coming in April, Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse hits the PlayStation Store, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring the third season of our landmark episodic series to you, the PlayStation Nation!

Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse 1

If you’re not familiar with the rabbit/dog detective duo, the following description ripped unceremoniously from the press release explains our heroes’ new unhinged adventure:

In Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse, Max has been bestowed with a set of powerful psychic abilities from an unusual ancient source that he’ll wield against the strongest and strangest foes the Freelance Police have ever faced. Join gaming’s greatest dog and rabbit sleuths as they investigate the source of these powers, with manic Max exercising new and amazing abilities with each episode. Max’s shape shifting, teleportation, mind reading and future sight abilities prove particularly useful as intergalactic simians, eldritch gods, under-dwellers and an arcane scholar ruthlessly hunt down those powers for their own evil ends.

For the first time on the PlayStation Store, we’re teaming up with the fine folks at SCEA to offer Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse for pre-order beginning March 18. Customers who pre-purchase the five-episode comedy saga will pay $29.99 (discounted from $34.99) until the game launches on PSN. Not too bad!

Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse 2 Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse 3

We can’t wait for you to experience the first episode, The Penal Zone, next month! In the meantime, go ahead and take a peek inside the Devil’s Playhouse with the trailer below!

So the whole third season will be exclusive to PSN? Or is it just one episode?

I wish the US/Canada PSN Store was updated as early as the EU PSN Store!!
What is the freakin deal with the lateness each week? It doesn’t even seen to be on a schedule, it just shows up whenever, usually really late.

Great to hear this news! I’ve been hoping for a long time that Sam & Max would eventually make their way to PlayStation 3.

Great. Wonderful. Where’s the store update?

+ FearMonkey on March 11th, 2010 at 5:32 pm said:

I’ve played both Season 1 and Season 2 on PC. Is the PS3 version going to entice me away from the PC in any way? Other than trophies, that is. For example, will the PS3 version have bluetooth mouse/keyboard support?

Also, any chance of PSN getting Seasons 1 and 2 for those who haven’t played them yet?

Thanks for the info. :)

Please, Store update! I want my Mega Man 10 right now!

+ FetusZero on March 11th, 2010 at 5:37 pm said:

For once I’ll agree with the people.. where’s the store update? Endless Mode in Megaman 9 isn’t enough to seize my appetite for some Megaman 10, been waiting so long for it!


21

+ V_Ben on March 11th, 2010 at 5:37 pm said:

This is fantastic news, I’ve been a fan of the sam and max games for quite some time! Will you guys be offering this for pre-order in the UK too? I’m asking as I… you know, live there :-)

oh, and to all you guys complaining about the PSN store update, this guy has nothing to do with the PSN store. Stop with your whitterings ;-)

Cool trailer.

+ Anubis80 on March 11th, 2010 at 5:38 pm said:

Ok if its a PSN game (this means download game) how in the hell do you pre order it?

Also when is the store updating? Im getting real tired of this. Its getting later and later each week.


25

+ MadmanNeverDies on March 11th, 2010 at 5:38 pm said:

Give us one good reason why this was on XBL for so damn long exclusively.

You lost my potential purchases when you accepted a huge wad of cash from MS to keep this exclusive.

+ johngrybos on March 11th, 2010 at 5:38 pm said:

It seems weird to just drop Playstation gamers into the third season. I’ve never played Sam & Max, and seeing “Season 3″ of an unfamiliar game series is an immediate turn-off. Maybe start from the beginning?


27

+ abort_user on March 11th, 2010 at 5:38 pm said:

Sam and Max is never a bad thing.


28

+ W0lf_MAN21 on March 11th, 2010 at 5:38 pm said:

Love how some are asking you about the PlayStation Store update.

Anyway, game looks interesting will have to see more into when I can. I too am wondering if the PSN will receive Season 1 and 2.

Great job and keep up the good work Telltale Games!

+ aldadevl on March 11th, 2010 at 5:39 pm said:

I just love starting a series from season 3 and beyond… and didn’t you guys stay away from the ps3 for a certain reason? put this on a disc and i might be interested. no episodic nonsense for me.

Rumor store be updated at 9pm est time lol.

I agree with #25

+ IndoorEnthusiast on March 11th, 2010 at 5:42 pm said:

i have to wait tell the 18th? but i want to pre-order nooooowwww!!!


33

+ V_Ben on March 11th, 2010 at 5:42 pm said:

Technically speaking, it’s season 3 guys. But there will probably be little to no connection to the previous seasons. So its probably cool to jump in here!


34

+ midnightshade on March 11th, 2010 at 5:43 pm said:

Nice!!! Loved Monkey Island back in the day! And am a big adventure fan. Gabriel Knight, Kings Quest, Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Indigo Prohecy, and Heavy Rain all fit into the Adventure Genre. Love it and Can’t wait to play this. I have the first Sam and MAx on PC and it was great. I will buy this day one! Thanks Telltale games! Can’t wait to play this on the PS3! Please bring past episodes over too!


35

+ Azure_FZ on March 11th, 2010 at 5:44 pm said:

Not sure what a Sam and Max is , but I would gladly give it a shot if it wasn’t for a simple thing:

You don’t make something exclusive for one console so long making gamers for this console beg for it for so long, then post on here, expecting some to fall head over heels for it. Just some advice: Release it on both consoles when the request is made, not months after.


36

+ footballrule on March 11th, 2010 at 5:44 pm said:

When is this releasing, today?


37

+ V_Ben on March 11th, 2010 at 5:46 pm said:

Also, Telltale is a relatively dinky studio. Getting up and running on all 3 platforms takes time, and now that they’ve got the tool up and running on PS3, they’re here (hopefully to stay!). They don’t take cash bribes, believe me, I’ve tried!


38

+ twooh on March 11th, 2010 at 5:46 pm said:

Will there be a demo? I know I won’t pre order a DL game without playing a demo 1st. Maybe you guys think the game is gonna suck and want people to buy it before playing it?


39

+ akaKEYSERSOZE on March 11th, 2010 at 5:46 pm said:

I have Season 1 on Wii and it is a great game, I don’t have access to Season 2 as it is Xbox and PC only, so it would make sense if Season 1 and 2 were released at a resonable price 2 weeks before the planned date for this so people know what they are playing.


40

+ r-nice on March 11th, 2010 at 5:46 pm said:

Never played an adventure game so i’ll be interested in trying this out. However, I am also curious as to why it took so long to get adventure games onto the PS3.

I’ve always heard good things about them on XBLA.


41

+ Azure_FZ on March 11th, 2010 at 5:46 pm said:

@36 No :(, they said they’ll be accepting pre-orders on March 18, which brings me to my next question other have been asking. How do you pre-order a PSN game ?


42

+ V_Ben on March 11th, 2010 at 5:47 pm said:

Well, we’ll find out Azure_FZ, won’t we :-)

Seen that rabbit from somewhere.

How do you pre-order a PSN game?

Probably the same way you subscribe to Qore.


45

+ r-nice on March 11th, 2010 at 5:48 pm said:

I also second the question about getting Seasons 1 & 2.


46

+ Zet13 on March 11th, 2010 at 5:48 pm said:

AWESOME! I played the first 2 seasons on Gametap, I’d be VERY willing to pick this up monthly on the PSN. THANK YOU SO MUCH!


47

+ Azure_FZ on March 11th, 2010 at 5:48 pm said:

Never subscribed to Qore wouldn’t have known, so thanks for the info 44.


48

+ Kirkpad on March 11th, 2010 at 5:51 pm said:

I like Sam & Max, I might pre-order this. Do we need to know any story from the previous seasons?


49

+ TheRealAlpha2 on March 11th, 2010 at 5:53 pm said:

I think it’d be really awesome if all 3 seasons were available on bluray.

+ KainDrake on March 11th, 2010 at 5:54 pm said:

what took you guys so long to bring something to the psn??? damn now i don’t know if i should get it on psn or on pc for the eventual dvd you will make for it.
