Sony has announced that it will be hosting new indie game sales every 2 weeks from June 5 onwards. The principle is simple: on the 5th of June the first indie game will get a price cutoff, that will disappear again after a period of two weeks. When the sale on the first game is gone, another game will be priced down. The games that are featured in the sale are Pid, Topatoi and Zack Zero. PS Plus members will get even better prices due to an additional bonus percentage that goes off the price for them.
Limbo, the rather artistic black-and-white indie game, will be available from June 4 onwards via the PS Vita store. The game is about a little boy who travels through a world filled with shadowy creatures and traps, hoping to find his missing sister. If you’re interested, you can watch some gameplay here. The game will cost you 15 dollars (13 euros or 10 pounds).
Sony has just announced that next Monday the Playstation Network will be unaccesible for 12 hours in the USA and 15 hours in other parts of the world. The reason for the shutdown is a common maintenance of the Network, which is needed regularly. The account management, the PS home and the store will be unavailable during the maintenance, but you can still play game if you are signed in before the shutdown starts.
