Monster Madness Spreads to PS3


Released earlier this year for the PC and Xbox 360, Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia wasn’t met with much critical success but must be doing well enough with consumers as SouthPeak Games today announced its plans to bring the title over to the PS3 in the form of Monster Madness: EX. Scheduled to spook PS3 owners early next year, Monster Madness: EX is more than just a straight port. Developer Psyonix has taken some of the criticisms of the original release to heart and is using the extra dev time to remedy the problems and make the PS3 version better than ever. The shoddy camera and controls many critics bitched about on the 360 and PC are being tightened up, an array of mini-games are being added to the mix for additional fun and various other “newly built in extras” are being worked on to ensure that Monster Madness: EX lives up to its utmost potential.

“The Monster Madness series has a lot to offer gamers of all ages, whether they’re old school or new school,” said Melanie Mroz, Executive VP of SouthPeak Games. “The top down camera combined with the co-op and online multiplayer make it the perfect title for the PLAYSTATION 3 system.”

“It is exciting for us to expand upon this game and to add new content and gameplay,” said Dave Hagewood of Psyonix. “We are broadening the experience of Monster Madness on the PLAYSTATION 3 system to more players than ever before.”
