Tetris PSN Gets Free 3D Update, Twitter Giveaway

Tetris Team Marathon

Greetings, fellow TETRIS enthusiasts! I’m here to deliver some very cool news about our TETRIS game on PlayStation Network. Ever dreamed of being immersed in a multi-dimensional rain of falling Tetriminos? I know I have. Well, thanks to the wonders of 3D Television (and the EA Production Team); we can all finally live the fantasy. We just launched one of our most impressive free TETRIS updates ever. TETRIS on PSN will finally be playable in 3D. Yes, you read that right – 3D! To experience this new option, all you have to do is launch TETRIS on your PS3 and accept the update. That’s it! It’s available in North America and Europe and is only 75MB.

In addition to TETRIS on PSN boasting 5.1 Dolby Sound, 1080p HD graphics and six different play modes – you will now be able to play TETRIS on your snazzy 3D monitor. We’re really excited about this update and can’t wait to compete in PS3-exclusive multiplayer modes, with Tetriminos in our faces!

Keep your eyes on @PlayStation on Twitter today — we’ll be giving out codes you can redeem for a free copy of Tetris on PSN!

How about an update that allows two people sat in the same room to play against two online randoms?

Has the voice chat in Tetris been fixed yet? I bought it when it first came out but the VOIP was a mess and I haven’t touched it since.

Cool! Tetris never gets old! They should create Tetris with game background. I would love to play Tetris on an “Uncharted 3” background, etc…!

Weird… Posting to see if I fall into the same profile. Did you guys sign in on the blog before posting, or were your credentials already on the blog?

Off Topic–When is “The Drop” going to show up, and what happened to all of those updates throughout E3?

I remember a lot of people complaining that 5.1 was not working when this was originally released on PSN (not quite sure how it would work with Tetris). Is it really doing 5.1?

why does it have to be 1080P when most games are 720P. don’t get me wrong i love tetris but other games need to have 1080p for the full experience like infamous. and i second #16

What time can we expect the codes to be posted? I don’t want to waste all day sitting on Twitter.

3D is stupid

I think this is kind of misleading. I almost thought the game itself was free. Tear.

Interesting, if only I could afford a $3000 3D setup…LOL.

Nice update

I would like an update that would put a time limit on matchmaking. Sometimes, people will just sit in the lobby and not enter the next game, thereby ruining the matches for everyone in the room.

@FfoegNosnibor…I agree…

@kyungturner…Move on troller..We know your fake..

wakingthedead17 said:

@Deathspear666…I can confirm it wasn’t fake, I logged out to test it and I got signed back in as kyungturner, and Sony just took the blog down for a few minutes to do maintenance and fix the problem.

One of the admins said it was due to a video content error loading somewhere on the front page of the blog.

Is this my normal name now? :D God that was strange :-/ Anyway Trophies i didn’t like in this game. The game is brilliant tho;)

Carl-G said:

Yep name back to normal;)

More 3D is always welcome.

So I have tetris on about 5 different systems…is this version worth buying guys? It looks good and pretty cheap.

Can we get Hotline mode from Tetris Worlds? Loved playing that competitively with friends — a real mind-bender, and great fun!

PS: Every time a game mentions Dolby 5.1 as a feature, it only brings down the expectations. My original Xbox could do Dolby, as does the 360, and it sounds like crap. The PS3 can do HD audio — make games that take advantage of this unique capability!

The patch for this game in 3D is nice indeed, however, I would have preferred to have inFAMOUS 2 in 3D!

The tweet just came out. They are asking a Tetris Trivia question. They will randomly pick 40 of they correct replies to receive a free Tetris game. Anyone who already has Tetris gets the upgrade free, the first time they use Tetris after the upgrade release.
