Tetris Team Battle

Hello, fellow Tetris enthusiasts! This is Christophe from EA Mobile and we’ve got some really big news. We are launching Tetris on PlayStation Network and it’ll be available to download from the PSN store in very early next year. This version of Tetris boasts 5.1 Dolby Sound, 1080P HD graphics, plus six online and local multiplayer modes. Of course, you can play Marathon mode by yourself in the boldest and brightest graphics ever, but what we’re really excited about are three new PS3-exclusive multiplayer modes that will make this a must-have. I can’t go into much detail, but these new online, real-time multiplayer modes will be more fun and competitive than anything you’ve seen before.

A couple of weeks ago Alexey Pajitnov, the original creator of Tetris, got to try out this new PS3 version and absolutely loved it. And since we know how excited you are, we have a trailer ready to showcase just how awesome this gets. Check it out above! This is going to be the definitive Tetris experience.

      Unfortunately we don’t announce prices before launch, but trust me with all the game modes we’ve packed in this thing it’ll be well worth it!

  • lol I caught Tetis too :P

  • I remember the new tetris for n64 and playing 4 players was mad fun. I hope this has the same feeling. I might be in there like swimwear.

  • SOLD!!

  • Sweet, hope to get my hands on this

  • poweredbyzen

    trophies for the trophy ho’s? :D

      Yes, Tetris for the PS3 will definitely support trophies and we will also have “all-time”, weekly and daily leaderboards that track global and regional scores for all the uber-competitive Tetris players out there.

  • BlindsideDork

    Not dissing the game but it is Tetris…do we really need 5.1 sound?

  • StealthReborn--

    It’s kinda amusing, months ago I accidentally bought Tetris for the PSP, thinking that it would work on the PS3 and didn’t have a PSP until this past summer which I won. Now there’s going to be a PS3 version – ugh. Tempting too because there’s online.

    Any trophy support or leaderboards for this version?

  • BOUGHT.

    12

  • Hmm…you know…I wonder how this would play with one of the MvC2 or Street Fighter IV fight sticks…

    IIIIIInnnnnnnterrestinnnnnng…………

  • I’m buying but please don’t release this game at $15.99. Make it $7-9.99

  • I’m ready when you are, EA. Your move.

  • And what about the music? Will we get those horrible Electro remakes the PSP had or can we expect some more decent versions of the tunes? The 8-bit originals would be great.

    And the price?

  • So… what’s the weather like in your area?

  • Price and date?

      Tetris should be available in the EU before Christmas and it’ll be available in North America right after the New Year.

  • i just came!

  • WHEN IS GOING TO BE OUT? AND HOW MUCH ??? important questions

  • I’m buying this only because of the music… I <3 tetris theme A!

  • Come on now Sony. You’re already getting enough of my money next year with at least 6 solid retail titles I’ll be picking up and now you have to go and make me spend even more on PSN with X-Men Arcade and Tetris!? Why won’t you let me keep my money? =)

  • SyphonFilter-

    May buy it,rarely get PSN games but quick good games like this i will. Wonder what “Hold” is? Maybe you can hold one Tetris item and use whenever you want?

  • Meanmuggers1

    Two questions. When and how much????

  • > Best Tetris Game ever

    That’s not Tetris DS and it’s Push mode!

  • Why do you tease us with this awesomeness and not mention the release date and price? :) Can’t wait — if it’s $10, this is a no brainer.

  • LOOS COOL WA BEYOND ANYTHING IV SEEN OF TETRIS SO FAR DOU U KNOW HOW MUCH IT WILL BE AND ARE THIER ANY SPECIFIC DATES FOR THE ARIVAL

  • will it have the awesome modes from Tetris Party? I really hope it does. I liked that version of tetris a lot.

    I wouldn’t mind having money winning tournaments again either, that rocked!

  • Dex_DarkDefender

    HELL YEAH! Let’s TETRIS!

  • boneyardweller89

    It’s got trophies right?

  • if it costs $1.99 I’m sold

    otherwise I’ll get that on my ipad

  • I’m running out to purchase a 1080p television right now! I’m guessing the blocks would look terrible otherwise.

  • Cool, but I’m sure it will be overpriced. If so, will wait for a sale.

  • NINEblademanNINE

    I LOVE TETRIS!!!
    “I’ll buy it at a high price.”

  • Cyb3rfr34k-iso

    boring…

  • Jimmy_Cosmos

    zombie mode?

  • Whoot?

  • I wonder if it will keep player 2’s & player 3’s & player 4’s stats? I wish all multi-player games would do that. I will still get it anyway;) I love retro games :P

  • Price check!

  • Anything above 5 bucks will be too much after it is Tetris. If you don’t have Tetris or a clone for free on your computer you are not looking hard enough!! I buy it just so I can see Tetris pieces in my dream again! loll

  • PuppetShoJustice

    Man. I’m already getting sick of all the Uncharted 3 stuff all over the internet.

    On topic: Please post a price when you decide to reveal a game to us here. It’s nice and all to see upcoming games but its really helpful to know if they’re priced reasonably or not. You’re crazy if you think you’re going to charge $15 for a game that is literally a quarter century old.

  • VincentVendetta

    I don’t care, Tetris DS will always be the best version of Tetris ever made.

  • MoneyMaker110

    why must you tempt me to purchase another tetris?

  • This looks awesome but the price has to be right. Anything above $5 is a complete rip.

  • O YA…. Its about time, i constantly ask myself “Why must i suffer, I cant stand these Standard Definition blocks… WHEN WILL THEY BECOME HD!!!!

  • BiezulbubBill69

    release date?!? I’m definitely buyin this!!

  • ArcaneAltair

    Need a reasonable price before I commit to buy.

    Definitely interested though.

  • I hope it has better control than the Tetris Mini on the PSP and is as fast as Tetris Party Deluxe on a certain other system. Did the nuts at HardDrop test this out? If it doesn’t have at least T-Spin Triple detection I think I’ll skip it.

    Beautiful trailer though…

  • Cyb3rfr34k-iso

    i cant wait for Prototype on PSN tomorow!!
    hope it’s 19.99$ :)) but i’m pretty sure they’ll put it at 29.99 :(

  • Haha nice, it’s crazy how many different versions of Tetris there have been over the years…
