Trine Hits US PlayStation Store October 22

Look for it by the end of July!

You wanted to know when Trine is coming to the PlayStation Network. So did we. After an uncharacteristic first launch in Europe, Nobilis has announced it will finally bring the physics-based fantasy action game to the PS3 on October 22. (Don't forget, an Xbox Live Arcade release is also coming from Atlus at some point, but there's no indication when that will happen. So if you've got both consoles, I'd recommend you go ahead and pick up the PSN version, assuming it works as well as the PC original did.)
 
This is a tad bit later than the "end of July" timeframe the publisher originally predicted, but three months late or not, I'm pretty sure the game is still going to be excellent. Here's why!

Wow, thats still quite a while.

It's great that it's coming out for the PS3...problem is, a lot of people have played it by now. Still, many more havn't.

Posted by AtomicEdge

Blimey, not really looked into this before, but I may have to give this a go. Plus, it's already out in europe!

Posted by Kohe321

That's some delay... Oh well, I got it on my PC anyways.

Posted by Mourer

20 days and I'll probably forget about it again.  Just sayin'

Posted by FunExplosions

I sure hope whatever kept delaying it for the PS3 wasn't anything horrible.

Posted by Smarter_Martyr

Finally. I kinda lost interest with because of the delay. My money will be better spent on Uncharted 2 and MW2.

Xbox 360 version coming October 16th!

Edited by kwyee
    Not as bad as the Alpha Protocol delay, but I think there's still enough excite around this. Well, at least I'm still excited about it.

Posted by Scooper

I'm gunna get the 360 version at this point. I was going to get it on PC but thought more of my buddies would be playing it on 360 and co-op looks the most fun in this game.

Edited by Jost1

It's not a great game. At least I am not enjoying it on my PS3 here in EUROPE, maybe the PC version is better but I doubt it.  I didn't care for it very much.  Don't pine after this game when there's so much coming out.

Goddamit, PSN.

Posted by Jerr

Haha, im so glad i torrented it

Posted by Milkman

Finally, I've check PSN every week since July to see if it was up and every week I was met with horrible, horrible disappointment. Good news to hear that I will only be disappointed a couple more times.

Posted by Irishjohn

If you could have gotten it on PC, you should have done so already. Besides not even knowing the 360 release date, the co-op isn't really anything to brag about. The ability to change between 3 characters was the core mechanic in this game, and when you take that away things fall apart. And if you really want to play co-op you can do so with a 360 controller on the PC.

Yeah but also my PC aint the best so I'd prefer to play this on a system and a nice tv.

At this point I'll believe it's out when I see it. The PSN delay has been aggravating. If I had a PC I'd own this game already.
 
I'd still like to know what this delay is about. It makes no sense to me, unless Microsoft is up to some licensing shenanigans, or Sony are just being dicks. Trine has obviously been ready for release for a long time. So what gives?

Posted by dbz1995

Good for you US duders; I got it over here at Europe and am enjoying the fuck outta it. Downloadable platinum trophies FTW

Posted by the_stig

Meh, I am going to pass on it now and wait for ModNation Racers.

Posted by daycru

Missed it's opportunity, holiday season is too packed to care anymore.

Posted by Media_Master

Good, it has a date!

Posted by Dryker

Well, this was going to be one of the only games I actually play on my PS3, since I didn't want to wait for the 360 version. But now that it's been so long delayed, I might as well wait a tad longer. Way to F that up Sony.
Edited by Crono

I still doubt that it will be out October 22nd.  Trine on consoles is a myth!  A myth I tells ye!

TRINE IS A LIE!

Posted by Zanthox

FINALLY! and still nearly a month away...

Posted by GregIsRad

Finally!....oh wait

Posted by Meptron

for real this time?

Posted by MeatSim

July couldn't end until this game was released.

Posted by anamanaman

Better late than buggy

Posted by buzz_killington

I looked for it, but it wasn't there...

Then you'll get it on PSN, because it probably won't be out on XBLA before then.
Posted by kennybaese

It better come out this time. I've wanted this game for quite some time now.

Posted by gingertastic_10

:D Yay!

Posted by MrKlorox

Don't understand what's taking the ports so long. The PC version was nowhere close to worth $30 but was still pretty neat.

Posted by SoothsayerGB

Looks great.  Wouldn't have cared about it if it wasn't for this video.  Glad Giant Bomb is leading my blind ass home.

Posted by Darro

Surprising to see that we (UK) got it before the US since I assume it will be the other way around or at the same time.  Got it and played a bit of it and its a cool game no doubt.  Would be fun to have online but ah well.

Posted by SJSchmidt93

PC version got a price drop so now I see no reason to buy this version.

Posted by Jason_Miami

Too bad for this game on PSN. I was super excited but after all this time I've lost all interest. With Demon's Souls, Uncharted 2, and Brutal Legend coming out this month, I won't regret skipping this.

Posted by bandro

In the UK Trine has been priced at something like £16, which is something like $25.  I'm not gonna hate, but all i'll say is that it's too expensive for me.  No deal.

Posted by TwoOneFive

almost forgot about this. its about time i can't wait to play it. 

Posted by xyzygy

So wait, this game IS coming out for the 360, right?

Posted by LordAndrew
@xyzygy: Eventually.
Posted by CL60

What a delay.

Posted by xyzygy

I will most likely just wait for the 360 version. There are too many good games coming out now and plus, achievements.
