Hotline Miami coming to PS3 and PS Vita this spring

Murder and get murdered on Sony consoles

It's been interesting to witness the rise of games that have a love/hate relationship with violence. Spec Ops: The Line and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance are two high-profile examples. Less well known, but just as effective, is the arcade-style action title Hotline Miami. After racking up over 300,000 sales on PC and multiple awards, the little sociopathic symphony is headed to the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita later this year as a single-purchase cross-buy title.

We talked with the developers of the game a while back on Sup Holmes where they hinted this might happen. I couldn't be happier to see that their plans are coming together, and that Sony continues to foster relationships with smaller devs that are skilled at melding message with gameplay mechanics. If the next Sony system becomes the exclusive place for more games like Hotline Miami, Papa Y Yo, and Sound Shapes, I may just have a new favorite home console on my hands.
