Tetris Slots Nicely Into Place On PS3

Leak reveals puzzler heading to console.

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.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they put some Move support on this game. Use the nifty gesture controls like on the iPhone version. I’d buy that in a second.

    It’s just a bit disappointing that given its non mini-ness, it won’t be playable on the PSP.

      But on the other hand, non-mini means tetris trophies, and if done right, that could be one awesome trophy list!

        And that can only be a good thing. If i’m going to invest my hard-earned into a game, i want to get my money’s worth, otherwise it’s a love-film. I was the same with that other block game on psn, not shatter but the other one i can’t think of the name of…

    I’ll have to keep this quite from my mrs. She’ll be all over this, expecially if it has Move support.

      I was totally into both as a kid, though columns did always kinda feel like a 2nd rate tetris

        only if you text search for it… otherwise its not in the minis or psp section, probably due to the similar tetraminos mini.
