Today, February 12, we're all very proud to be celebrating the one year anniversary of Flower's release on the PSN! Before I get onto the news, perhaps I should recap for those of you who aren't familiar with Flower.
Flower is a completely new experience in gaming that takes you on an emotional journey through vivid and beautiful landscapes. In it, you guide the wind to collect flower petals, float above grassy hills, and paint the world with color and light.
Since its debut, it has won a ton of awards and recognitions, from critics and fans alike, as a truly unique experience and ground-breaking game.

200w ago - Naughty Dog's Senior Manager of Marketing Communications Arne Meyer has announced on the Sony PlayStation Blog that the Uncharted 2 PS3 Soundtrack hits stores today.
To quote: Music is an important component in our games; with it we can set the right tone within any given part of the game and help our narrative elements evoke the proper emotions.
When I first played through UNCHARTED: Drake's Fortune, I thought Greg Edmonson totally nailed the action-adventure cinematic feel that is the foundation of the UNCHARTED series.
It was a pleasure - and great news for the many Edmonson fans - that we were able to "get the band back together" and work with Greg a second time on UNCHARTED 2. We couldn't be happier with the results.
As of today, there are not one, but two ways you can get your hands on the original soundtrack to UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves. While the soundtrack has been previously available on iTunes, we're glad to see the original soundtrack released on CD TODAY and it is available at stores around the US and on your internet retailer of choice.
294w ago - It looks like EchoChrome has been a big game in Japan. And now they want more! And thanks to the game being such a big hit, Sony has been given the go-ahead to start producing a soundtrack for this game.
The soundtrack will feature 13 of the soothing tracks in EchoChrome. It will either send you into a deep sleep, or give you headaches just thinking about the mind boggling puzzles.
And now that the game has just been released in the US and in Europe, chances are it will probably be on the wish list of a lot of logical minded gamers in the US and in Europe.
The CD will retail for 2,940円 ($28.21 US). No news on it being released outside of Japan as of yet though.
