Penny Arcade Adventures Coming To PS3

See? It was only a matter of time! The Hothead Games folks have apparently found their way around issues with the PlayStation 3 and the Torque Engine, and now Penny Arcade Adventures: On The Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, Episode One is heading to the PlayStation Network this fall. Rejoice, and stop emailing Hothead to complain!

"We keep getting emails asking why our Penny Arcade game is not on PSN," said Hothead's CEO, Vlad Ceraldi. "We have always said we wanted to have our games on as many platforms as possible to give choice to gamers. All good things take time and we are very excited to be debuting our first PS3 title and look forward to bringing more games to this platform in the future."

The PSN version will feature similar pricing to the Xbox Live Arcade and PC versions, so expect to shell out around $20. Enjoy the first screens from the PS3 version below, and be sure to check out our review to help you decide whether or not you should be excited about this whole deal.
