- Just prior to Sony's October 2006 PS3 media event, a list of downloadable PlayStation Store games had been slipped before they were supposed to be. Among the six titles on the roster was Go! Swizzleblock2 -- a "cube-swapping puzzle game" that challenged players to match colors in an effort to remove every last block from their screen. Not too soon after the leak, Sony confirmed Swizzleblock's existence as well as that of the other unsubstantiated titles -- flow, Lemmings, Blast Factor, Calling All Cars, and Go! Sudoku.
And then there was silence...
In the three months since the game's confirmation (and only in paper form at that), almost nothing about Swizzleblock has been revealed to the public. As it turns out, this was all for good reason since Go! Swizzleblock doesn't quite exist under that title anymore.
"Swizzleblock is actually part of http://ps3.ign.com/objects/860/860480.html," commented Sony Computer Entertainment representative Patrick Seybold when speaking with IGN. "We'll be revealing more on it and Go! Puzzle's other features before its release in late February."
Go! Puzzle is the second PS Store title whose fate was confirmed today. Sony reps also revealed that flOw will appear around the same time frame in a discussion with IGN earlier this afternoon.
