Surprise! Retro City Rampage: DX is out now for PSP, and it's FREE for all PS4, PS3 & PS Vita owners! This makes it a momentous 4X Cross Buy !
Surprise, again! Due to the overwhelming requests, the PS4 retail version is being re-released, with brand new cover and disc art! The first 3,000 copies of this new version are individually numbered, and include a PSP manual and retail display set, commemorating the new PSP version.
Pre-orders open this friday at 10am PT.
I'll also be streaming the PSP version and doing a Q&A on Twitch Friday at 1pm PT. Don't miss it!
The PSP port surprisingly dates back to '09. It was shelved in favor of the PS Vita version, but after the success of the PS4, PS Vita and MS-DOS retail releases, the dream of having the game on UMD suddenly seemed viable. I started finishing it up as a side project, but unfortunately, UMD production halted without warning and made that impossible.
Despite the news, I decided to release it anyway; digitally, for free to owners of the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita versions. Plus, UMD or not, it's still getting a special PSP retail display set, included with the first 3,000 copies of the new PS4 Retail Version! In addition to those, you can download the UMD disc label digitally, here ( http://vblank.com/files/rcrdx_psp_umd_label.pdf ), and see what could've been.
The PSP was one of the first platforms I worked on after entering the industry, and RCR:DX's PSP version is my opportunity to give it a nice send off. The handheld will always hold a place in my heart, both as a gamer and as a developer.
With UMD production discontinued and the PS Store on PSP closed, Retro City Rampage: DX will likely mark the final PSP game ever released, but it can still be downloaded onto your PSP via your download list, or via USB using your PS3 or PC.
RETAIL MOVING FORWARD, A WIN-WIN
Retro City Rampage's 2014 PS4 retail version was an incredible success, but unfortunately many of you missed it! So, due to the overwhelming requests, it's being re-released!
This re-release boasts brand new cover art, disc art and a manual, easily distinguishing it from the original. Owners of the 2014 copy can rest easy, knowing it remains as rare as it always was.
This time around, it will have an open print run to ensure that fans won't miss their chance again, for foreseeable future. To reward the dedicated fans and collectors who pre-order it right away though, the first 3,000 copies boast a gold cover variant and special bonuses!
The first 3,000 copies are individually numbered and will include:
- a PS4 retail version with a gold logo cover variant
- a PSP display case & manual
- Digital copies for PC, Mac, Linux & MS-DOS
These first 3,000 are limited to 2 per customer, and will be priced at $30.

I had doubted one of the LRG guys' prediction that it would sell under 3,000 of the "open orders version" after the initial "limited" 3,000 sold, but maybe he was right.
Parece que el ritmo de las ventas ha ido bajando bastante con el paso de cada hora; tal vez si reactivara la opción de los códigos cross-buy digitales para PSN igual conseguía algún tirón extra (de hecho, se hace un poco extraño que siendo la venta de la versión PS4, se haya incluido el código digital para PC por defecto, pero el de PSN sólo para los 1000 primeros compradores; pareciera más lógico que hubiera sido al revés) . Como sea, paciencia.
Comentar también que el número de cada pedido no se corresponde con el número real de cada edición de PS4 vendida, según Brian Provinciano en Twitter (https://twitter.com/RetroCR/status/7565 ... 02?lang=ca ).
Edito: Acabo de comprobar en su tienda online ( http://vblank-entertainment.myshopify.com/ ) que en estos momentos quedan aún disponibles 1523 unidades de las 3000 iniciales puestas en venta.
