Sony Confirms Beats Slider is Free This Week on PlayStation Mobile

101w ago - Sony Director of Emerging Platforms Chris Mahoney has confirmed that Beats Slider is free this week on PlayStation Mobile.

Below are the details, as follows: Last week saw the launch of a PlayStation Mobile promotion that will offer six free games over six weeks, starting with Samurai Beatdown.

This week, the free PlayStation Mobile game is Beats Slider. Master the puzzle gameplay by sliding different note blocks into sequences to create catchy electro tunes and compete for the best times online!

Some of you may remember that I announced the game to be "coming soon" quite a while ago  and I'd like to assure you that we spent all that extra time on making sure that the PlayStation 3 version is polished in every detail.

It took us a lot longer to finish the game than we originally expected, but in return we were able to add a lot more content. Check out the trailer below to see what I'm talking about:





Zombie Driver HD on the PS3 is the first console version of the game rendered in native 1920x1080 resolution with no compromise. We wanted to make sure that the game looks really good in Full HD and a simple "up-scale" of our 2D art was out of the question.
