Hot Pixel Ships

767Hot_Pixel_PSP_Cvr.jpgAtari’s PSP mini-game collection Hot Pixel has now shipped in North America and is available for purchase at nationwide game shops for $29.95. Featuring 130 mini-games stylized after “early 80s Atari arcade classics and modern-day street culture,” Hot Pixel follows in the vein of the WarioWare series with its quick-hitting challenges that never last more than a few seconds to complete, making it the perfect pick-up-and-play experience for portable gaming. Should you decide to add the game to your PSP collection, you’ll be happy to hear that a hefty bundle of 70 extra mini-games is already available as a free download from the game’s official website. Not sure why they weren’t included on the UMD to begin with (disc capacity used up I guess?), but hey, they’re free so it’s all good in the end.

“Hot Pixel is a hybrid of old-school retro and street smart cool, combining colorful and stylistic graphics with an electro-pop and hip-hop soundtrack,” said Donny Clay, Producer, Atari, Inc. “Players can even remix custom Smart Playlists full of their favorite mini-games. Hot Pixel is right at home on a system that boasts an impeccable style and a rich multimedia experience.”
