.detuned Available Tomorrow on PSN for $2.99

Rusty Buchert's Avatar Posted by 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! :)

Zezzler said:

October 14th, 6:25 pm

looks kinda cool, but it would have been WAAAAAAAY better if this (and all the features, except maybe trophies) were made into a dynamic theme.

trustkill said:

PullusPardusUS said:

gus_xl said:

October 14th, 7:08 pm

Sounds pretty interesting. I still have a few dollars in the wallet that I wouldn’t mind trying out something new with.

VenomXv said:

October 14th, 7:08 pm

Cool. I actually enjoyed Linger in Shadows. I look forward to this as well.

poodude said:

October 14th, 7:26 pm

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.

thebrocknation said:

October 14th, 7:30 pm

A walkthrough video would be nice.

Kirkpad said:

October 14th, 7:31 pm

Sweet, I can’t wait to see what this looks like.

poweredbyzen said:

October 14th, 7:41 pm

i dunno – looks like someone trying to reproduce an acid trip and calling it a game. not that i would know – really!

p_morin said:

October 14th, 8:13 pm

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”!

I_am_rushin said:

October 14th, 8:23 pm

Nice price. I might pick it up.

Happy_man said:

October 14th, 9:03 pm

I only got 3 dollars and change in my virtual wallet, looks like I’ll be getting this.
