Flower and Sound Shapes Join PlayStation 4 Digital Launch Lineup, Flow and Escape Plan to Follow


Sony has bolstered the PlayStation 4 launch lineup today by announcing that hit PSN games Flower, flOw, Sound Shapes and Escape Plan will make the jump into the next generation. PS4 versions of Flower (at 1080p and 60fps) and Sound Shapes will hit on launch day, November 15th, with flOw and Escape Plan to follow shortly thereafter on November 29th. A Vita version of Flower will also be released on the 15th.

Best news of all, these four games will be cross-buy. If you already own any of these games on PS3 or Vita, you will be able to download them for free on your shiny new PS4. Or if you buy them for the first time on PS4, they’ll be ready to download on the other platforms. (Escape Plan is the only game that won’t have a PS3 version.)

Unfortunately for those of us who bought Flower and flOw with the glorious Journey Collector’s Edition retail collection, Sony has no way of tracking who owns physical copies of games since they aren’t linked to a user’s PSN account. Therefore this cross-buy deal will only apply to digital copies.
