Guten Tag from gamescom! Sony Online Entertainment kicked off the first day with three of our newest PSN titles – Rochard, PAYDAY: The Heist and Sideway: New York. These latest games will engage you in graffiti adventures, environmental puzzlers and high intensity bank robberies, and will launch early this fall on the PlayStation Network via digital download.

Rochard for PS3 (PSN)

Rochard puts you in the shoes of astro-miner John Rochard as he uses his wits and everyday mining tools to fend off space pirates. You must save his team of missing miners and solve the mystery behind the discovery of an ancient alien artifact. The tools and crazy space gravity make for awesome puzzles, but it’s Rochard’s snarky sense of humor that really drew us to this game. Rochard will be available September 27th for download on PSN for $9.99.

PAYDAY: The Heist throws you straight into the action with high-stake heists, including bank robberies, prisoner extractions and armored car hijackings, you are forced to work as a team to control incredibly intense situations. This is a great game to play with a band of friends in search of the ultimate score. PAYDAY: The Heist will be available October 4th for download on PSN for $19.99.

The game can also be pre-ordered from September 20th until September 28th on the PlayStation Network and is included in the PSN PLAY program, which showcases the season’s hottest titles. PlayStation Plus subscribers will receive an automatic 20% off every PLAY program purchase. Additionally, DLC expansions will be released later this year.

Sideway: New York for PS3

Sideway: New York puts players in the role of Nox, a graffiti artist sucked into a twisted graffiti world, where you to explore the backstreets of New York City and navigate through a 2D adventure platformer set in a 3D world. While the task at hand is to defeat Nox’s nemesis Spray, it’s a blast using window ledges, drainpipes or graffiti tags to navigate around corners and onto rooftops of the city. Sideway: New York’s soundtrack brings an underground hip-hop vibe, which perfectly matches the theme of the game. Sideway: New York will be available October 11th for download on PSN for $9.99.

I’m with you voyte4. The only reason I preordered the 4 games was to get Payday. I def. didn’t want street fighter. Renegade ops was the only one that I really wanted, but I would play the other two. However, after watching the video they have on IGN.. I think payday looks absolutely horrible. Lesson learned, no more preorders for me. Couldn’t even get a dynamic theme out of it. Any game you preorder should come with a free avatar and a dynamic theme. On top of that, sony would probably just screw me over like they did with Shank and brag about how it was on sale for plus users, so I buy it, and then it goes on a bigger sale the next week. A couple weeks later all the preorder games will be 50% off just to make me mad. Being serious, I don’t think that would happen, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

*side note* the other 2 games on here look awesome. Why weren’t these part of the preorder deals.

    Thanks for the support. Sorry to hear about what you thought of the video. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed when you get and play PAYDAY. There’s a ton of effort and work being putting into the final revs of the game. You’ll be pleasantly surprised on the level of polish, HD graphical quality, gameplay, design and replay-ability for a $20 game. No doubt!!

    Thanks for the support. Glad you like Sideway: New York. The game doesn’t have online co-op, but you can enjoy local co-op with a friend.

Hmm PAYDAY: The Heist seems a little too enxpensive. But as i’m a psn + meber i may get it.. Sideway: New York on the other hand is a easy buy.
