OlliOlli Launches Today for PS Vita

Tom Hegarty's Avatar + Posted by Tom Hegarty on Jan 21, 2014 // Director, Roll7

OlliOlli Release Day Instructions

OlliOlli is out today, exclusive to PlayStation Vita for $12.99. Those of you with a PlayStation Plus account will get a 20% discount on that price for the first week.

We’re super chuffed (yes, chuffed, we’re chuffed), we can’t wait to get your feedback and see what scores you post, especially on the Daily Grind. We’re giving you a five-day head start before Nikos, our senior coder, is allowed near a Vita and starts busting some serious high-scoring moves. You have been warned…

Once everyone has trained up enough and we start to see some ludicrous scores, we’ll be running a competition to see who can get the highest score on a particular day of the Daily Grind. The lucky winner will receive one of our exclusive (There’s literally only two of them!) OlliOlli Skateboard, Helmet, and MANDATORY First Aid Safety kit, but more about that soon!

We really hope you enjoy OlliOlli. We poured a lot of love, time, and devotion into this project, and we hope that shows!

If you fancy any tips and advice on how to rack up some radical scores, then do check out our Creative Director John Ribbins displaying his uber skills in these videos here.

For full details on all the modes, please check out our previous post and feel free to take a peek at our YouTube channel

Enjoy!

This is a really fun game, despite being so brutal at times. But that’s what made Hotline Miami so great. One bail is all that is stopping your nameless faceless skater from reaching his full potential.

I’ve been previewing this game for the past 2 weeks and it is AMAZING. at first glance it doesn’t look like i t would be a game you would sink tons of your time into….but once you crack open this HIGHLY addictive game open, you will not be able to put it down! Deff worth checking out!

Congratulations on the high scores that have been coming in from some of the major video games media outlets, Roll7! A 95 from Destructoid, 90s from God Is A Geek & Eurogamer, and 80s from Game Informer and Edge?! Not to shabby at all (especially that Edge score…they’re notoriously brutal). Must have a hit on your hands. I’ll be picking it up soon enough! Cheers!

The PlayStation Store website isn’t reflecting the 20% price discount. Just a heads up. Doesn’t look like its a visual disparity, either. When I go to checkout it still says $12.99.

+ T3mpr1x on January 21st, 2014 at 1:07 pm said:

@Hologram00 (#29), the game is designed to look older (an homage you could say), and a lot of people like that. Why do you care so much about graphics anyway? A game is fun regardless of how it looks.


31

+ SacrificialToast on January 21st, 2014 at 1:16 pm said:

I’m kind of confused as to the timing the game expects for tricks. I press the stick in a direction, then do a quarter, half, or 3/4 circle fast or slow, and then half the time I just get an Ollie. I press a direction right as I’m about to hit a rail and then go right past it without grinding. That’s not to mention that I constantly get mixed up on pressing X to land and pressing a direction to grind, since they’re basically both landing actions, and I can’t seem to keep them straight in my head.


32

+ allnewfie on January 21st, 2014 at 1:40 pm said:

@30 i care what the graphics look like and i agree with 29, for a game like this it shouldnt be $12 bucks or even with my plus memebership $10 is alittle much. also playstation seems to be putting alot of these kinda games out there. i am a 70′s child so i had all those kinda game back in the day, guess the younger generation likes it. you all should wait a few months, u know price will drop or it will be on plus for 7 bucks.i’m just gonna save my cash for something better.

@ Hologram00 & allnewfie

And what makes you two geniuses so sure that the whole world needs to hear or even cares that you feel that way?

“Man, I just gotta post on that developer’s blog and let them know how much better I think I am than them! I’m so cool! Yeah, you guys aren’t reaching my standard, just thought I’d let you know…”

See, boys, what you’re doing is considered “trolling”, and no one (aside from other trolls) appreciates that.

Would it bother you to find out that this game becomes a huge success? Can you do better? Just wondering…

@ allnewfie

That is trolling. Albeit mild trolling, but still trolling nonetheless. To be fair, Hologram’s post was more of a troll than yours. But you weren’t offering constructive feedback, nor reporting a legitimate problem with the game, so it falls under the category of trolling. (Negativity that serves no purpose other than for negativity itself.)

The proof is in the pudding. You must be getting some kind of satisfaction out of announcing your opinion that the game isn’t worth the price (when you haven’t even played it, silly) and suggesting to others that they don’t buy it.

Wait for a sale if you’re on the fence, sure, but you ended your post by saying you’re saving your cash for “something better”. (And again, you haven’t played it). Now what does that suggest? You tell me.

Why couldn’t you ignore it if it truly didn’t interest you? Do you need people to join you in your rejection of OlliOlli in order to feel some sort of accomplishment? Why not leave it alone and allow the consumer to make their own decision?

I’ll never understand why people post these kinds of things on devs’ blogs: “This game looks crap! Don’t waste your money people!” Why??? :|

wow, so i didnt think my post was that bad. i mean ppl here say the game looks gret just by a few pics and videos without playin just as i done the same and said i wasnt interested in this game. i suggested yes ppl wait for a sale, i dont see any harm in that. i didnt mean to come of as trolling or bad mouthing the development team who made this game, not the least. nore wasi looking for ppl to join me and say this game sucked.
as said didnt mean to upset anyone. i am just a voice like 1000′s of other users here and i just added my 2 cents.

I purchased this game today, and it keeps having an error that causes the game to reset.

The game was fun when its worked.

I have buyers remorse for paying 10.39$, since it contnues to encounter an error causing it to reset.

l wish I waited till it was on sale for cheaper and all the bugs were fixed.

Bummer Dude.
