Calling All Cars has arrived; PS3 gamers rejoice

11:25 PM on 05.10.2007 // SRVSLPS

PlayStation 3 fans rejoice; the wait is over. Calling All Cars is upon us. In a recent press release, Sony confirmed that it will indeed be released this Thursday (which was a few hours ago). Read on, and release those pent up tears of joy!

Play cops 'n' robbers on your PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) system this Thursday as Sony Computer Entertainment America will offer the much-anticipated PS3 exclusive, Calling All Cars™, on the PLAYSTATION®Store.
Developed by Incognito Entertainment and overseen by the Spike TV Video Game Awards – 2005 Designer of the Year, David Jaffe, Calling All Cars was built specifically to take advantage of PS3 hardware, running at 1080p High Definition* at 60
frames per second for both offline and online gameplay, in either single-player or four-player split-screen. 
More PS3 goodness, after the jump.

If that isn't enough to satisfy your cravings, there is more...

Other new additions to the PLAYSTATION Store this week include the arcade classic, Rampart ™, which is downloadable in its entirety, a video for the PS3-exclusive Warhawk™, and a trailer for Burnout™ Paradise.
Looking for details? We have you covered.
  • *Calling All Cars Full Game ($9.99): Calling All Cars is a high-octane,     fast-action game of cops 'n' robbers from the creative director of the Twisted Metal®  franchise and the original God of War®, David Jaffe. Take on the role of a bounty hunter careening around a stylish cartoon world on the hunt for criminals on the loose. With more than 10 vehicles and four different levels to choose from, Calling All Cars combines demolition derby style action, crazy weapon pickups, humor, and a throwback to classic arcade games.
  • *Rampart Full Game ($4.99): Defeat enemy ships while preventing your opponent from damaging castle walls! In this classic arcade title, strategy is the key to victory as you prepare for battle, build and repair your territories, and fire away at enemies.
  • *Warhawk Video (free): Learn about air combat and preview your arsenal of weapons in the latest video from Warhawk, the first multiplayer, fully immersive online-only game available this summer exclusively for the PS3 system.
  • *Burnout Paradise Trailer (free): Get a sneak peak at EA's gorgeous racing title with this new trailer.
  • *Rampage™ Video (free): Prepare to re-live all of the incredible monster mashing mayhem in this Rampage World Tour video!

For those of you who felt that Xbox Live was stealing all your thunder, this has to be welcomed news. That should hold you off, while Sony figures out how to leverage the power of its creative think tank, and starts cranking out more "must have" games for you to buy.

You mean to tell me that you're still reading this? Fire up "old faithful", and start downloading some fun. Oh, and don't forget to come back here and comment about the game. Was it worth the wait? Rumor has it that it rocks the house down.

Steam rejected the DP refund. Meh, It's been a long time between when I bought and played it, don't care anymore, heh. Decided to play more MGS4 on PS3 and start replaying Rayman Origins on PC. Fun games that actually work.

Being an asshole, watching this Star Citizen debacle unfold and seeing Cloud Imperium's meltdown about the whole ordeal is incredibly entertaining. Even if the allegations ARE false, CI's official statement comes off as wonderfully bitter and petty.

Alright. Playing off of the Avatar question, why did you choose your username?

I tried playing Deadly Premonition on Steam from my backlog today and it's a GODAWFUL pc port. I bought it forever ago but I requested a refund. If anything I don't want it in my library....

So, I plan on using my GameStop Power-Up Rewards points (yes) to buy all the eventual P4DAN DLC. Even though the practices are very suspect. I am so not made of stone. Moreso blubber and Dr. Pepper.

Having a puppy and trying to play legend of grimrock 2 somewhere the puppy normally doesn't get to hang out is a futile effort.

Shafts of light emanated from Robo Panda Z's eyes, illuminating the intricately engraved obelisks looming impossibly above him. A whispered voice spoke from the obelisk. Do you pay too much for your Internet? Comcast. Like you have a choice.

I miss Kill la Kill - I think mostly because it was so damn entertaining to have a bunch of people drawling, "Nuuuuuuuuudiiiiiiiist Beeeeeeeeeeeaaaach" at each other.
