Back when PSP Minis being playable on PS3 was newsworthy, the big surprise was that Tetris wasn’t. It’s not that the evergreen block puzzler was too complex, too quicky or too colourful for the big console, it’s that rights holders EA wanted to shove their own, PS3 specific version instead.
At least, that’s what we thought back then. Thankfully, going by a new ESRB description for a game called ‘Tetris’ on the PS3, we were right.
“This is a puzzle game in which players arrange falling block shapes to pack them into contiguous horizontal rows,” says the ratings board. “Players compete against themselves or others to earn points based on how many perfect rows of shapes they are able to clear.” Yep, that’ll be our Tetris.
If you don’t know what Tetris is, it’s a puzzle game that singlehandledly ensured the Gameboy was a success and has since gone on to sell millions across every platform you can think of. Look out for it on PlayStation 3 soon enough.
