flOw in a UMD Bundle Set for Europe

Posted by on September 5th, 2008

So… yeah, some of you might have seen this article on Kotaku announcing a UMD bundle by SCEE. Well, the article is how we found out about it, too!

Here’s the rundown:

“The PlayStation Network Collection releases, unearthed by Siliconera, consist of one Power Pack, containing flOw, Syphon Filter: Combat Ops and Beats, and the Puzzle Pack, featuring Lemmings, Go! Puzzle and Go! Sudoku.”

So… yeah, it has been confirmed here (after some hectic phone calling and emailing), but no, we don’t have a price point as of yet. This could be a good thing, though, as the current method of downloading games to your PSP is pretty complicated, and not Mac-friendly, so all of these games could benefit from exposure through the more traditional UMD format. It is SCEE-only right now, with no word on other territories following Europe’s lead on this one. But it seems like you’ll hear about it before we do, so if you pick up on something feel free to post it on our forums.

And hopefully people who wouldn’t have thought of flOw before might give it a whirl and find out they kinda like it, too. =)
