    Damn, why couldn't it be everywhere? Not sure I want to make a NA account just for this. Tempting though.

    Only people living in the US can access it- it won't work if you're living outside the US and are using a US account.

    I downloaded it an hour or so ago. Pretty chill game, flower-styled controls work pretty well in it.

    If you do not live in the US, make a US account, it's easy.

      ......How was that rock you lived under? Nice and cozy?

      I think this is the single most well known game on the PSN.

        Was that the same rock that hit your head, 'cause if you think that's the single most well known you're clearly dazed

          Oh? What would you call the single most well known PSN game then?

          Next biggest contenders would be maybe Pixeljunk (series) or possibly Fat Princess?

          PSN games available on disk (Warhawk, Burnout) don't count.

          Echochrome, PixelJunk(s), Pain, Fat Princess, Flower, Wipeout, R&C:Q4B, the many PS1 games, hell even the newer Trine.

          Oh, I wouldn't say any single one is more well known than the others though 'cause I, you know, don't know everything

          Flow was there at the beginning, or nearly so. It spawned flower (if you know flower you know flow), and I don't hear many people mentioning the Q4B. Pain sucks hard (Boring after the first 5 minutes).

          I already gave a nod to Pixeljunk (it's a series of different games though), and Fat Princess, though maybe Wipeout (good game) and Echochrome (meh) should too, but I still believe FlOw is overall, the best well known.

          I've only heard the name Trine, have no idea what it is about, but mention FlOw to any group of PS3 users, and they'll probably know what it is. Doubly so since it was originally a FLASH game on the Web, so it has that following to improve its recognition in wider circles.

          PS1 games don't count, they're not PSN developed games, just ports. Even so, most of those aren't as well known as many of the PSN games mentioned anyway.

          I don't think we'll agree on the most well known PSN game though, we'd need some sort of official statistic to confirm which one it is.

          So you need to know flOw to know Flower? Tell carouselambra that. Pain does suck; doesn't stop it from being advertised like hell. flOw sucks too, doesn't mean it isn't well known.

          Official statistics are usually bullshit anyway.

          It doesn't matter which one is more overall best known, it will still change in different communities and groups. So you can joke about Kuhn living under a rock for not hearing about it but there are many other people who he knows or who are like him who haven't heard of it too, with good reason too, because it's plain, simple and boring. It's like arguing about the best known footballer. Sure, in Britain and America it's probably Beckham but head to Brazil or Spain and there are people who haven't even heard of him. Not many, mind, but you can't exactly think of them as out of the loop for not knowing of something they have no reason to care about in the first place.

          Not 'need' to, but you probably would. I mean, most people at least read reviews (which would certainly give FlOw a nod) before buying them, plus the purchase description probably mentions it too.

          True, I was going to say Pain may suck, but that doesn't mean it isn't well known, but meh.

          Again, true, but 'total number of DLs' should be indicative of popularity, though it is biased against newer games.

          This is indeed a pointless argument (or debate, if you will), but I don't think either of us enjoy not having the last word XD

          Nope, neither of us do

          But hell, if it adds more grep points for the competition I'm sure we can both live with that as well, right

          Yeah, more points = good....

          But I'm nowhere near enough for the 200 points needed to get some prize >_>

          Well, if you're gunning for anything, you could always submit articles; they wrack up your points very quickly.

          I know, but it'd require like, 5 articles to find and get approved, and I'm lazy XD

          Maybe I'll do a mad rush in the last week or so, and try to get em then.

          I've found just making useless comments or joining in with debates tends to help. Many posts get deleted but usually it's just one at the start, so you gain ten and if you lose any it's usually just four. Of course it might be too far in for you now, I don't know.

          I also don't know how but I already passed the 200 mark as far as I'm aware; it's one of the perks of talking rubbish

          Actually, at this moment, you have exactly 200 points XD

          I've only got like 70 or something now >_>

          Select the username while on gamegrep, and points related info is on the right side, including 'points earned this month' and 'points earned today', among other info.
