Sportsfriends nears PSN debut, computer ports not far behind

Assuming everything goes to plan, multiplayer sports compilation Sportsfriends should appear on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 shortly.

Indie developer Die Gute Fabrik updated the Sportsfriends Kickstarter page to note that the game has been submitted to both the European and North American wings of Sony for inspection. If Sportsfriends needs no further alterations, Die Gute Fabrik claims that the game should reach the PlayStation 3 and 4 in "just a few weeks." This follows a delay announced in January, at which time the developer claimed that Sportsfriends required more polish before its public debut.

Additionally, Die Gute Fabrik claims that the PC version of Sportsfriends is up and running. Mac and Linux ports are not lagging far behind as the game's Atrophy Engine (licensed from Bit.Trip devs Gaijin Games) inherently supports all three flavors of operating system. "We're still hoping to release a backers-only Windows/Mac/Linux beta in conjunction with the PlayStation release so that everyone can start playing," said Die Gute Fabrik. "No guarantees, but we'll do our best and we'll keep you posted."
