Space Invaders Extreme Also Invading PlayStation Network

image Oh, remember that announcement about Space Invaders Extreme coming to Xbox Live Arcade? The handheld game is being revised for TVs on more than one console.


Thanks to a leak from PEGI, we also know Backbone Entertainment’s port is in development for the PlayStation 3 as a PlayStation Network downloadable game. So, PlayStation 3 owners can look forward to blasting aliens with trippy visuals redone by Space Giraffe creator Jeff Minter. Hopefully, Backbone will keep the DS soundtrack for the game and not pull any console specific exclusives since the Xbox 360 version also comes with classic Space Invaders.


Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to find anything on a PlayStation Network version of Arkanoid Live which may or may not be an Xbox 360 Arcade “exclusive”.

    Arkanoid Live’s being done inhouse… I suspect it’ll stay exclusive as Taito’s killed all their internal PS3 projects to this point.

    I wonder if the MOSS developed Exit/Exit 2 XBLA conversions might hit PSN though.
