Six Weeks and Six free PSM Games from Sony.

As of today Sony are giving away a free PSM game away each week for you to enjoy. This can be used on various devices such as the PlayStation Vita, Sony Ericsson Phones or their Tablets.

The first game to be released is a Samurai Beatdown; which is a sidescrolling rhythm game in which you play as a Samurai and defeat your Enemies to the beat. Rather simplistic, but can be incredibly fun if you enjoy games from this genre such as Hatsune Miku, Dance Dance or even Patapon (though this game lacks the RPG Elements of Patapon sadly). That said, you don’t really have to be a fan of Rhythm games to enjoy this game.

Here’s a video of some gameplay:

 

To download this game:

  • Open up PlayStation Store.
  • Go to the PlayStation Mobile section
  • Choose Games
  • Choose Music/Rhythm
  • Download Samurai Beatdown

Note: PSM is available in Japan, United States, United Kingdom, Canada, France, Italy, Germany, Spain and Australia. If you live outside of these areas, then you may be unable to download this game.

Stay tuned, there will be another game released next week so remember to download it soon.

Leave a comment and tell us what you think of this game.

Enjoy!

      Sony needs to give games, they fucked up on everything. The expectations for the Vita were not met, especially with the launch price + memory card price + game prices and they haven’t exactly come out with the greatest titles for us in the past year and a half or at launch. The Vita has been a bit of a disappointment. A lot of people don’t want CFW on Vita because they feel for some reason it’ll destroy it but Sony should really consider opening up as this may increase sales of the console, even though PSP clearly prospered even with CFW and only about 5-10% of users actually used CFW,

      I’m afraid not. You need to be connected to PSN, so it’ll force an upgrade.

        I use Charles when i’m testing. It won’t force an update if you know how to use it. I use it to bypass PSN and not get banned when testing CFU.

      Lemmings is free unless you want to play on anything other than easy then you have to play in the app itself.
      There are a few PSM games like that. They are free with In App Purchases.

      I hate IAP on any platform. The sooner they crack it for PSM the better.

    Wow this great. Thanks for the heads up.
    Samurai Beatdown is pretty awesome. I love the music.

    Forced touch controls is lame and the design is a bit flawed. Like, those birds sometimes make no sense to the rhythm.

    Think its because PSM isnt kicking off like Sony wanted (mostly because most developers on the forums got pissed off that they couldnt just make games JUST for PsVita. And, instead, have to make sure their games are compatible across ALL PSM certified devices… which crushed the dreams of ALOT of the developers that were planning on making games for it)

    Reply

    1. Tonakai’s avatar

      I agree with you here. They seemed to think that PSM would be a hacking deterrent too, so they’re trying not only to get a bit of publicity to people may spend more time on it but also since they started charging a ridiculously high price for you to even test your games on your device (it used to be that you got the dev software then could transfer your games straight onto your Vita. Now you need a dev license that you have to pay annually for) they need some form of incentive.

      Why is your forum full of suck ups? =( lol

      I’m willing to read a defense of anyone, but the most common defense here seems to be “such criticism is out of bounds and no matter what you say it means you’re an entitled child.” Or, as fate6 quoted while closing an off-topic thread (as opposed to just noting it was off topic), a bunch of “ungrateful 12 year olds.”

      Guess what? Adults can defend themselves and should be able to deal with criticism without lying about the nature of that criticism, or tarring people who disagree with them. Extremely weak and biased moderation, and a bunch of people who seem to me to hold a belief because it is popular rather than due to the merits or reasoning for such a belief. It’s sad.

      Reply

      1. mlc’s avatar

        Ack, looks like fate6 was merely quoting to say that “off topic” was the reason for the lock, so I must retract my criticism of his/her actions; they were not insulting or biased. The rest is still accurate with my perceptions of many of the arguments I’ve seen here.

        Yeah, but when someone makes you something for free, purely to give enjoyment to others, you really have *zero* right to criticize. Criticizing or demanding improvements of any type, *is* childish. There’s no way around that.

        Politely suggesting what you think “could be” a “cool feature”, is another thing. Even then, you can’t complain if they don’t add it.

        Reply

        1. Someone Else’s avatar

          And I also wanted to point out that it is adult behavior to point out childishness and entitled criticism, because to mature individuals these things are very off-putting. It is absolutely right for them to call you a 12 year old if you criticize.

          A mature mindset will realize: “Really? Someone worked on this for months to bring entertainment to the masses, and you’re gonna poke holes in the parts that aren’t good enough to you?”

          What adults don’t do, is look a gift horse in the mouth. Just pointing out.
