Foosball 2012 Coming To Vita And PS3

No I haven't spelt it wrong.

An announcement on the EU Blog. has certainly caught my attention. Foosball 2012, being developed by Grip Games is heading to the PS3 and Vita “at the end of this spring” which is vague but I think it means we can expect it soon.

The game will have you controlling your table football team as you take on both AI and online opponents. Using the analog sticks or, wait for it… Move, you can control all your players at the supposed touch of a button. Or should that be flick of the wrist.

One of the more important things to add is that Grip Games has taken note of the format Motorstorm RC took. If you buy the game on one platform, it will be available on the other. There is also going to be cross-platform play and game saves will be carried between platforms. No word on a price yet, but if it’s around that £5 price bracket, this could be a winner.

The announcement trailer is below.

    Awesome! Actually looks pretty fun – and at least there should be no spinning of the Move controller!

    If they get the controls right, like changing from one row of ‘players’ to another, should be fun.

      Yes, i’m thinking about that… they could make it auto-select whichever row is nearest ball… but you need to swap to other rows quickly for defence so it’ll be interesting to see. It’ll be quite cool if they pull it off and the two-for-one deal is sweet.

    Really impressed with X-game commitment here, may pick it up just for that. I’m really hoping that we get a bigger, longer single player game (Ruin or Warrior’s lair or whatever for example) that follows the same trend and that eventually most games will be released in this format.

    You might not have written it wrong, but I’m constantly reading it wrong!

      Funny story: kjkg actually had spelt it wrong in the headline before I edited it. He’d written “Fossball” :D
      I laughed for about five minutes.

        Ha serious? The rule of the internet. When discussing spelling, you are bound to make a mistake.

        That’s lol worthy :)

        ps: kjkg kinda looks like a typo. Co-incidence? You be the judge.

        pps: Try saying kjkg 10 times fast.

    But but but, Sony aren’t supporting Move any more, it’s a complete failure, there’s no games etc etc. ;)

    On a less sarcastic note: I’m loving the pay once play twice model (ala Motorstorm RC), if Sony keep this up they are going to win a lot of brownie points!
