The Best Simpsons Game Ever Is Coming to PS3 [Update: Xbox Gets It Too]
If you are like me, you were burning through quarters playing The Simpsons Arcade Game at the batting cages while your older brother was actually hitting balls. If you’re not like me, you probably played during some other scenario. Either way, we both know that The Simpsons Arcade Game was really something special. It was such a good game that it unintentionally set me up for years of disappointment because 99.9% of licensed games are crap, and The Simpsons Arcade Game set the bar really high. Even other Simpsons games haven’t lived up to this gem Konami put together in 1991.
Lucky for those of us who haven’t touched an arcade cabinet since elementary school, The Simpsons Arcade Game is coming to PS3. Next week it will be released for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers, but it is supposed to be released to everyone soon after that. So far, there is no word on pricing or when the game will be released to everyone, but PlayStation Plus users will be able to download the game for free starting on February 7th. There are also rumors of an XBLA release, but none of those have been confirmed yet.
Update: It’s now confirmed that it will be released on both PS3 and Xbox 360. More details at Time.
