This means you buy the game once and get both the PS3 and PS Vita versions. And that's not all... there's also a Platinum Trophy!
With GDC being this week, and the IGF award nomination for "Excellence in Visual Art," we also thought it would be cool to share some early concept art and video footage of the game, so that you can see for yourself how much things have changed. As you can see, Guacamelee! has really come a long way visually since its inception.

All teams who participated in the event produced remarkable games and it was tough to pick the...

Our goal is to continue to work with the independent developer community to provide fantastic games you can't find anywhere else.
38w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez is here with the new PS3 and PSN releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:
Indebted to the wrong people, and with his life on the line, hired gun Booker DeWitt has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean.
He must rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood and locked up in the flying city of Columbia.
Forced to trust one another, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond during their daring escape.
Together, they learn to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities, as they fight on zeppelins in the clouds, along high-speed Sky-Lines, and down in the streets of Columbia, all while surviving the threats of the air-city and uncovering its dark secret. Bioshock Infinite comes to PS3 on Blu-ray and PSN on this week's The Drop.
Bioshock Infinite (Also on PSN) - Welcome to the city of Columbia. Floating amongst the clouds, cruising far above sea level, this is a place unlike any you've ever seen. Please enjoy your voyage...
The third game in the popular Bioshock series, BioShock Infinite breaks away from the underwater setting of the first two games to take players into a floating city held aloft by dirigibles.
