Flight Control landing on PS3

Monday, 16th August 2010 09:51 GMT By Joe Anderson


Firemint, developer of the hugely popular iPhone and iPad game Flight Control, has confirmed the game is coming to PS3.

The developer broke the news to TSA, adding it will support both PlayStation Move, Dualshock 3 and stereoscopic 3D. The game will also run at 1080p.

Flight Control sees you take the role of an air traffic controller who is tasked with landing an increasing amount of aircraft and helicopters on the respective runways and landing pads. The idea is to successfully land without collision, something which becomes increasingly difficult as time goes on due to the sheer amount of on-screen madness.

The PS3 version will include support for both solo and co-op play, allowing you and up to four friends to play in a drop in/out style similar to Traveller’s Tales LEGO games.

“Multiplayer is insanely fun, you can never be quite sure whether a new player is going to help or hinder your efforts so there tends to be a lot of laughing and jeering,” commented Firemint’s CEO, Rob Murray. “It’s turned Flight Control HD into an extremely social game.”

Flight Control will be released on September 15 via PSN.

    Easily one of the most used apps/ most played games on my iphone. Hope it makes its way to the 360 at some point.

    Nice little title on an iphone/ipad – a bit snack sized for a console release though.

    Would work best with Move – would be too fiddly with a controller I think. 3D is going to add nothing to the game unless it’s made part of the gameplay. It’s not going to do 3D *and* run at 1080p either.

    To be fair its gonna be fidly as hell with either a controller or move, your not gonna be able to judge where exactly your drawing a flight path with move

    Isn’t that a major selling point of Move, ‘sub-pixel accuracy’?

    I’m sure you’ll be able to judge trajectory just fine.

    Yeah but pointing a controller towards a screen and moving it isn’t going to give you anywhere near the control of literally moving your finger over the screen where you want it

    Perhaps not, but i’m sure it will do the job.

    Sure but a controller doesn’t obscure the whole screen whilst doing it either :)
