It's fun and neat to watch in action, but damn it sure does get tough.

Anybody know how the controls are on the PC? If they're good then I'm all over this.

been playing it for awhile tonight
i've come to the conclusion that the 360 controller is FAR superior to the PS3 controller for this game :D

ps: buy this game now >:(

I hope someone makes a rip of this now that it's on PC. Even just the bare tracks themselves would be cool, but hearing someone else's interpretation of all the in-game sounds would be awesome.

I'll probably end up buying it after a while, but I don't even play Geometry Wars that often on PC, so I dunno.

Does the shooting go all directions or is it limited to just horizontal, vertical and the four in between like the PS3 version? ...er, if I'm making sense. If you've played the PS3 version, I think you'd understand.

seems like this would be hard to play without an analog stick...I want a PC demo first.

I bought it on PSN awhile back and I wasn't that enamored with it. It was great for the first hour or two but I just went straight back to Super Stardust HD after.

How much does this cost on PS3? Its great this stuff is getting ported to PC, but I would think $5 makes more sense than $10. If we just get a bunch of ports of PS3 and Live Arcade stuff, that's going to get old if it is as expensive or more so.

They didn't even add 16:10 resolution to this port. . .

If I recall correctly, it was $10 (+tax). Which reminds me... why don't more people complain about there being tax on PSN games? Although they get the "add x.xx amount to purchase game" right.

I picked this up for $4.99 when it was onsale on the PSN... simply awesome game. Very, very highly recommended if you like dual stick shooters at all.

There is tax on the PSN? Wow, that must suck, I live in Alaska, well that's worst but there is no tax for me. So I guess it depends on where you live, maybe if you change your address or whatever you can avoid the taxes.

I'm going to assume you're still limited to shooting in 8 directions. The reason why you were this limited in the first place is that the game was originally developed on PC. Playing with the keyboard, you can only aim in 8 directions. Kind of dumb that the PS3 version inherits a limitation from the PC, but what are you gonna do.

Some people get taxed on PSN (I believe states who charge sales tax on online purchases).

Anyway, I thought ES shooter was cool, but just not as good as SSD HD. Worth it on Steam though.

No way then this should be $9 on Steam. You don't have Sony to payoff, and Valve shouldn't be getting anywhere near what Sony extorts. I figure there will begin to be a flood of these ports, and next time I will wait for a $5 price point on sale.

At least once in a while I can find a deal on Live points, no such luck with Steam.

a lot of you guys don't understand that Jonathan Mak was originally going to release for PC only, but then the attention he got from winning so many awards had sony pick up his game

also, i beleive he fixed the analog stick shooting on the PC version
on the 360, it feels much more smooth (can shoot wherever)

those complaining about the price, you are nuts!
totally worth the $10 :)

Never been charged tax here either (California), which is weird because I believe this is where SCEA is headquartered.
