here are 10 games you may not realise have physical copies.
After the news that Sony is closing down its older PlayStation Stores, we’ve been taking a look at the PS3 and PSP/Vita games you won’t want to miss out on. Players can continue re-downloading their existing libraries, but to buy anything new, PS3 owners have until 2nd July. As for PS Vita users, you’ve got a slightly longer timeframe, which lasts until 27th August.
London Studio is better known lately for Blood & Truth, but between developing EyeToy and SingStar entries, Beats had a quiet arrival on PSP back in 2007. Bringing us rhythm-based gameplay, players could import their own music to play along with, and your goal was to hit the corresponding buttons as notes glided onto their landing point, awarding points for better timing.
Dead Space: Extraction (PS3)
Much like the Resident Evil Chronicles HD Collection, you may recall EA’s acclaimed survival horror series Dead Space had a rail shooter spin-off in the late 2000s. Serving as a prequel to the original game, Extraction first launched on the Nintendo Wii to strong reviews. Eventually, it got ported to PS3 in 2011, offering PS Move support and improved graphics.
When it comes to gaming’s most ported titles, Lemmings is easily up there with DOOM and Myst, and alongside the PSP version, Team 17 and Sony also created a PS3 remake. Once again, our goal was to guide these anthropomorphised lemmings through obstacles, keeping them out of harm’s way as you sought the exit.
Papers, Please (PS Vita) Papers, Please has been about for nearly eight years, but Vita owners only received it back in 2017. Playing as an immigration officer for Arstotzka, your task is simple: ensure individuals have the appropriate paperwork to enter, vetting their credentials, and your actions could lead to 20 possible endings. We gave it high marks, and Limited Run Games released a physical print last July.
Rain (PS3) Japan Studio has created some unique titles across the generations. While better known for Ape Escape, Patapon, and LocoRoco in that era, it had several other PS3 gems, including the atmospheric Rain. Controlling an invisible boy, we teamed up with an invisible girl to escape an invisible monster, all of whom only become visible when it rains.
Sound Shapes (PS3) Santa Monica Studio’s primary focus remains with God of War, but it’s co-developed some interesting games across the years. Back in 2012, Sound Shapes was one of them, working together with Queasy Games for a musically driven platformer. Released for PS3 and Vita in 2012, a PS4 port followed a year later.
Summon Night 5 (PSP) Summon Night’s been around for over two decades now. Published by Bandai Namco, these tactical RPGs most recently appeared with Summon Night 6: Lost Borders on PS4 and Vita in 2017, but its PSP-based predecessor Summon Night 5 was the first entry to receive a Western release. Set within Savorle, our job was to protect the city’s peace, moving into a more contemporary setting than previous entries.
Tokyo Jungle (PS3) Tokyo Jungle is one of those quirky games which probably wouldn’t have seen a Western release, if not for the rise in digital storefronts. With humankind extinct, animals freely roam the streets of Tokyo, and we played as different species. Offering a story campaign with self-contained missions and a survival mode, you’d build up a pack of animals throughout this primal fight.
