The price fluctuates as it sells by increasing slightly if someone pays that minimum price and decreasing slightly if someone pays more than the minimum, and as of this writing the minimum is $5.29.

Mo-Cap Artist Pegs Playstation Battle Royale For a Fall Release

Posted on May 7, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Could Sucker Punch’s electrically charged everyman Cole Mcgrath be making an appearance in Playstation Battle Royale? Eric Ladin, the man behind Cole’s moves (read: his Mo-Cap artist) tweeted yesterday that he was in the studio performing as Cole, but not for an infamous title.

Does this confirm Cole as part of the games line-up? Nothing is set in stone but it is possible that Cole Mcgrath will be added via DLC if he does not make the initial cut. On twitter Ladin wrote “Feels good to be back in the mo-cap suit! Before you ask … no, not inFamous.”.

Also of interest is the fact that Eric Ladin followed up his tweet with the news that the title he is working on will be released sometime towards the end of the year. Could Sony be positioning PlayStation Battle Royale as part of their holiday line-up? Combine PBR (no, not the beer) and a price cut and you have attractive bundle, Just say’in Sony!


May Hurray Bundle Giveaway

Posted on May 7, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

We were wondering about what to give away today. The Tokyo Telecommunications Engineering Corporation (today known as Sony) was founded on the seventh of May 7th 1946. Over 500 years prior to that auspicious occasion, Joan of Arc took an arrow to the shoulder. Instead of whining about it, Joan continued adventuring. In fact, she patched herself up and got back into the fight that very evening. Her forces would lift the siege of Orléans the following morning. We considered giving out games somewhat related to those events.

However, Broken Joysticks won’t allow the distant past to dictate our actions in the present. Instead of giving out Sony games or Medieval strategy games, we’ll be giving away copies of Indie Royale’s May Hurray bundle! If you’d like a copy of one of these bundles, please post in our comments section. Tell us which of the games included in the bundle interests you the most and why. Winners will be chosen later today and announced in the comments section for this post.
