Dennaton Games and Devolver Digital announced today that the incredibly brutal Hotline Miami will be coming to the PlayStation 3 and the Vita this Spring. Currently, the game is only available for the PC.
“Our team have been fans of Hotline Miami from the very start and we are absolutely thrilled to have such a brilliant game launch on the PlayStation platform,” said Shahid Ahmad, Senior Business Development Manager, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. “The intense visuals and pulsing soundtrack are perfectly suited for PS3 and PS VIta and we can’t wait for PlayStation fans to see what Hotline Miami is all about.”
Developer Abstraction Games has been anointed with the task of porting the game, and PS3/Vita owners will be thrilled to know that Hotline Miami will be part of Sony's Cross-Buy system. If you buy it on the PS3, you will receive the Vita version for free.
“The Devolver Digital team is hyped to see Hotline Miami hit PS3 and PS Vita,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. “However, this Cross-Buy thing might prohibit me from achieving my long-standing dream of wearing a gold plated PS Vita around my neck. Total bummer.”
We all feel your pain, Mr. Parker.
I haven't had a chance to check out Hotline Miami since it has been a PC-only game thus far, but I am intrigued to see what all the hype is about. Will you add it to your PS3 library?
