One of those games, which I'm waiting for...
Platformer lovers shouldn't miss this thread...
Playdead CEO Dino Patti has confirmed to VG247 that Limbo will finally make its way to PS3 and PC.
The game was said to be an Xbox Live Arcade exclusive “for life,” ( ) but a KRB listing that showed up yesterday rated the game for PS3.
Patti’s confirmed to us that it will indeed release on the triple, but also on Steam as well.
“The rumors are true,” Patti told VG247. “LIMBO is in production for Steam and PSN, and is coming very soon.”
It follows the discovery of a registery code for a trailer for the game on Steam.
Other than confirmation, Patti would say much else, though.
“I can’t elaborate more at this moment. We have more details on it soon.”
That soon may just be next week: the PlayStation Blog’s US Twitter is reporting that deeds will arrive next week, with the game itself to launch on PSN next month.

Limbo is an incredible achievement. Very few games are as original, atmospheric, and consistently brilliant as Limbo. It belongs in everybody's collection. The journey may be over too quickly, but you will be entertained every minute. This is one of my favorite games ever.
Limbo establishes a strong connection with the player despite the lack of story, dialogue, text, or explanation.
You've never seen anything quite like this. The black and white visuals make everything creepier and the animation is very smooth.
Not only do the eerie sound effects set the mood, you often have to listen carefully for clues to solve puzzles.
The trial-and-death gameplay avoids being frustrating. Limbo always has a surprise waiting for you around the next corner.
8.0 Lasting Appeal
Limbo is a fairly short game, but you will enjoy every minute of it. Finding every hidden achievement will take a while.

The Best Use Of Bear Traps: Clever seems too cheap of word to describe Limbo's puzzles. They're smart and, for the most part, delightfully refreshing. They involve things you may not be used in a Super Mario Bros.-like side-scrolling game, including deadly bear traps, whirring saw blades and worlds that rotate. They also involve things you may be familiar with, like crates you can stack, floors that electrify and switches that must be pulled. Please, don't watch this video, because it will spoil a puzzle or two for you. And that would be too bad.
It's Not About The Notes You Play: Limbo is scary, full of childhood fears—spiders, drowning and evil little boys who will trick you and hurt you. You'll need to do some horrifying things to reach the end of Limbo, things that we don't normally do in games like this. You'll watch the boy's body being ripped apart, see it crushed into lifelessness and walk on the corpses of others. The absence of a soundtrack—the game's audio is almost exclusively dedicated to environmental cues and puzzle-solving clues, so listen very carefully—heightens the fear of dread. Play with the volume up so you can appreciate how soundless it is.
Shadows & Physics: Limbo, for all its horrors, is a beautiful game. From the flies that hover about rotting piles of flesh to the scum and dirt that floats atop every pool of water, Limbo is gorgeously designed. Artistically, it is stunning to look at, black, white, shades of gray and mostly out of focus. Technically, it is impressive. Ropes are pulled taught when climbed believably. Bodies crumple like sad rag dolls. Worlds turn and warp insanely.
