Jonathan Blow's Braid is widely regarded as one of the best games of 2008, an accomplishment made all the more significant by the fact that it saw first run as a downloadable title through Xbox Live. Having since expanded to the PC and Mac desktop platforms, it appears as if Blow's story-driven puzzle-platformer will also see release on the PlayStation 3, courtesy of Penny Arcade Adventures developer Hothead Games.
The news comes by way of the Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle (USK), otherwise known as Germany's game software rating board. According to a listing in the USK's online database, Hothead Games will serve as the game's publisher on the PlayStation 3. (Microsoft Game Studios published the game on Xbox Live.) The game was also given the most inclusive age ranking possible in the USK's system, indicating Braid was not submitted in playable form.
A Hothead Games representative confirmed that the studio is indeed prepping Braid for release through the PlayStation Network in North America and Europe. Unfortunately, the rep also noted that Hothead has yet to determine when the game will be available.
The rating comes as the industry gears up for GamesCom, Europe's newest industry event sponsored by Germany's Bundesverband Interaktive Unterhaltungssoftware (German Federal Association for Entertainment Software). In 2007, the BIU announced that it would be pulling its support from the Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany, dooming that show and in the process establishing GamesCom in the more cosmopolitan city of Cologne. GamesCom is set to run August 19-23.
