Hey PS Fam! Long time no blog. It's my pleasure to announce that Age of Booty will finally become available today on the PSN for only $9.99. I know there was a delay bringing this title to you, but we had to make sure we fixed all the bugs before we deliver one of the most original digital games on this platform.

When it launches, the game will be hosted on the same servers as the PC iteration. We'll have more for you on Uncharted Waters soon.
