Limbo Comes to PSN on July 19th

Dino Patti's Avatar Posted by CEO and Co-founder, Playdead

It has been one year since LIMBO originally launched, and that year has been an incredible time for everyone at Playdead. We’ve gotten feedback from many people around the world, and it’s been amazing to hear about the experiences people have had with the game.

So we are happy, on the mark of LIMBO’s birthday, to bring the experience further and share it with even more people. We will be releasing the game on the PS3 through the PlayStation Network on the following dates:

  • US – July 19th
  • Europe – July 20th
  • Japan/Asia – to be announced soon

Since we have gotten a lot of requests for the LIMBO Soundtrack, we are also making that available starting this Monday, July 11th on iTunes. If you are interested in more infrequent updates about the game, please feel free to sign up for the newsletter on our website So, with less than two weeks to wait to get LIMBO on PSN, we hope everyone will enjoy the game and the little extra secret we have in store for you…

We look forward hearing what you think!

I just love how the art style looks on this game…Looking forward to getting this.
I think this is one of the bright spots of this generation of games.
Downloadable titles are getting really good and the price is usualy just right.
any word on price sony ?

This game is very cool. I like the Little Big Planet 2 levels people created to simulate this game.

I was dangerously close to buying a 360 for this when it first came out. Glad I waited :)

“Playdead’s co-founder and CEO explains why the studio is bringing its beloved Limbo to the PS3…”
Where is the explanation?

Yeah this is a tight game. I played it on god forbid 360. Can’t wait to really see what the game is capable of on the PS3

Awesome ..!! a first day bought .
you didn’t mention about the price?!

I’ll wait to see what Lens of Truth has to say about this and by the superior one (90% chance it will be better on the 360 like everything else)

Neat, I’ve been wanting to check this out, but my Xbox has been packed away and I’ve been too busy with the PS3 to do anything about it.

One less great Xbox exclusive! Take that M$

digitalman123 said:

July 8th, 1:33 pm

Finally! Free for Plus?

plaztiksyke said:

July 8th, 2:02 pm

anything that takes advantage of the PS3’s unique audio or graphics capabilities? (Braid on PS3, for instance, had 24-bit audio assets.)

pricetag?? too bad that comes out 1 year after the XBL launch, and around the same time the Borderlands BUNDLE will come out for $15

Nando_lavras said:

July 8th, 2:11 pm

Price???? PS+ Discount? :P ……… Day 1 for me…………


Lopan said:

July 8th, 2:11 pm

Finally!!!! One of the reasons why I bought a 360 was to play this and Ace Combat 6. Looks like I have to buy this awesome game again to enjoy on my PS3.

Hazelhurst said:

July 8th, 2:38 pm

I’ve been wanting this game for awhile. Now I can finally play it! I can’t wait.

Yo, Dino

Welcome to a REAL gaming platform. Can’t wait to lay into this. Looks righteous.

I3rand0 said:

July 8th, 2:51 pm

$15 for a 1 year port of an old 360 game. Should sell well….probably not

hypothetical said:

July 8th, 3:00 pm

Why would you post this announcement and not include the price? It’s releasing so soon, it’s not like it hasn’t been set yet.

SmooshyKing said:

July 8th, 3:11 pm


Must you ask the same question OVER AND OVER?

Nobody cares about 24-bit lossless audio assets.

Highly stylized monochromatic platformer? Yes, please & thank you. I saw the thumbnail for the video clip & zero’d in. Hope it plays as well as it looks:)

The_Joy said:

July 8th, 3:22 pm

Great news. What about the price?

KidCommando said:

July 8th, 3:22 pm

Maybe when a decent sale hits. It’s been a year, no problem waiting longer.

KingLazy93 said:

Bilsebob said:

It looks like a whole lot of fun.

Anddo said:

July 8th, 4:20 pm

Finally! Been waiting for this. Knew it would come eventually.

“I’ve heard a bird sing about a PS+ discount”

Oh you, you’re just a darling aren’t you. Thanks for bringing the only game I wanted a 360 for over to the dark side!

HerbertFortoon said:

July 8th, 8:40 pm

I own this on the 360, and it is great!! Though, for constructive criticism, it is VERY short. You guys should work on that.

NinjaNabs said:

July 8th, 10:49 pm

an issue i wanted to discuss is the qriocity music unlimited service.why is canada the only country that doesnt get it?i checked on my psp and the canada flag was NOT in the i find this very sad.there are A LOT of ps3 users in canada,i can guarantee you that please fix this issue,i was even considering paying for the service.

Permafry_42 said:

July 8th, 11:16 pm

already got it for 360, so i’ll think about it. I would certainly be more inclined if there was a psn+ discount on it!

BlackIceJoe said:

July 8th, 11:18 pm

Is there any chance of a Vita version?

ZERO_x000 said:

July 9th, 12:04 am

AJBS0NIC said:

July 9th, 6:08 am

Any real reason why Limbo didn’t come to PSN in the first place? (besides half-baked console ‘exclusivity’)

Solid_Fish36 said:

July 9th, 8:32 am

I can tell the next 2 weeks will be good ones.

BrodiMAN said:

July 9th, 9:47 am

I remember playing this on my friends Xbox abit ago. The mood in the game is quite depressing, but the puzzle solving and unique feel of the game are amazing…

Can’t wait for this one…

twistedfloyd said:

July 9th, 5:33 pm

Looking forward to this. Was hoping for PSN release at some point. Will there be a demo?

DeathGazer said:

I’ve never heard of limbo, but it looks absolutely phantasmagorical!
A horror twist on the tried and true platformer genre, way to go playdead!
