11w ago - Creat Studios VP of Publishing Scott Hyman has announced via Sony's Blog that Germinator oozes to PS3 and PS Vita today with details below!
To quote: Hello again, PlayStation enthusiasts! Scott here from Creat Studios, with an update about our newest game for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, Germinator.
Germinator is available in North America today, March 5th, on both platforms for $9.99. But if you want 'em both, there's a bundle for $14.99.
If you do pick up the game on both platforms, the Cross Save feature will let you save your progress and continue on either platform. We wouldn't want to hold you back from beating the hardest puzzle levels just because you have to leave the house, would we?
We've designed the PS Vita version to take full advantage of the device's touchscreen capabilities. You can direct your Germs to shoot by the touch of a fingertip, and activate Germs special abilities with a quick swipe. Watch the video and see how it plays:

14w ago - Creat Studios VP of Publishing Scott Hyman has annoucned today that Germinator infects PS3 on March, 2013.
Below are the details, to quote: Scott here again from Creat Studios, with an update on our newest release. Germinator will be available in North America on March 5th.
Our team loves to make casual and puzzle games for PlayStation Network. We're the folks that brought you Magic Orbz, Cuboid, Mahjong Tales and Ricochet HD. Our next game, Germinator, continues that tradition.
Now, Germinator is no ordinary bubble game. There's none of the match-three that's been done everywhere else. Instead, same-colored bubbles combine and grow, grow, grow until they pop into a gooey mess!
Germinator features 75 Story levels, 75 Puzzle levels, an unlimited Arcade level and a two-player local multiplayer Duel level. But after stuffing the game with as much content as we could fit, it still wasn't enough.
All this splotchy, splattering goop needed to expand... to PlayStation Vita! We're thrilled to let everyone know that we're putting the final touches on the Vita build now, and we'll bring it to you in the coming weeks.

31w ago - Vice President of Development for Creat Studios Scott Hyman has posted up a fresh video today of Germinator for the PlayStation 3 console with details below on the PlayStation Move title.
To quote: Hey gang - I'm back to announce a great new game that features a killer twist on the bubble genre. Something messy and contagious is festering in suburbia, and there's only one hero who can save the day: The Germinator!
No more of that old school Match-3. While three of a kind won't help you in Germinator, you will need to crash your germ bubbles into those of the same color.
Upon collision, they'll combine and grow, GROW, GROW until they POP - gooey, splotchy, splattering pops. Be sure to pop them quickly before they get too big and overrun the house. Timing and accuracy is the key to preventing the various germs from rising too high.
Germinator features a crazy cast of multi-colored bubble germs with their own personalities and traits. Making them pop the right way triggers combos to explode them all and make a mess of your screen. Dozens of levels and power-ups will keep you coming back to clean house. Local multiplayer lets you battle your friends or the AI.
