MonkeyPaw brings PSOne classic Tomba! to PSN


11:15 AM on 06.12.2012



Man, I loved me some Tomba! back in the day. This pink haired, prehistoric platformer came from the mind Tokuro Fujiwara, who also worked on the Mega Man and Ghosts 'N Goblins. It's been awhile, but I still remember solid platforming, some mild RPG elements, great visuals and plenty of pig snouts. 

If you've ever checked on eBay, the prices for the original PSOne disc are crazy high. Right now a low price is about $150, and the highest on the auction site is asking $450 for a sealed copy.

MonkeyPaw Games is about to dump on those auctions by offering up a digital re-release on the PlayStation Network later this month for the much lower price of $9.99. You could go nuts with the extra $150 that you saved by getting the digital version! 

Tomba! hits the PSN on June 19th.

These Bloodborne PS4s are kind of lazily done, but I want them

My launch PS4 died a few months ago. Yep, just up and died. So I had to pick up a new one, and figured hey, why not the Destiny white PS4 -- it's the same price, and I can give the pack-in game away. It was a good idea a...more
