Vanquish available for purchase on PlayStation Network

November 6, 2012

Today Sony added Vanquish, SEGA and PlatinumGames’ 2010 action shooting game to their North American PlayStation Store on PlayStation Network. This allows one to purchase the full PlayStation 3 title and directly download it to keep on their HDD. A retail release, the game was also added to Microsoft’s Games on Demand service on Xbox Live in May of last year (originally $40 USD, it has dropped in price to half that since), although unlike that version, the extra optional downloadable content is included in the PlayStation Network purchase.

At the price of $19.99 USD, shooter fans will be hard pressed to find a better deal for this unique game bundled with all of its extra content. Be sure to read our review to help make your purchase.

Vanquish is the second 2010 HD action game by developer PlatinumGames, right after the universally acclaimed Bayonetta and the first game Shinji Mikami directed since God Hand and Resident Evil 4 under the publisher Capcom. Unlike any of their prior releases however, Vanquish is a third-person shooting game that takes place in a futuristic setting. Inspired by many concepts from popular franchises such as Transformers, Gears of War and Call of Duty, the end result leads to a very unique and very challenging game.

Vanquish – Story Trailer

September 4, 2010

A new trailer featuring the story of Vanquish has been released. San Francisco comes under attack by a metrosexual Russian and his space armada, and the President of the United States refuses to negotiate with him.
