Well on the basis, yes but here is a more extended preview:

Snakeball is simply the funkiest online sport ever created.

Glide across an outlandishly dazzling disco floor on a bizarre hoversnake, snapping up coloured balls to score points,
while other snakeballers attempt to knock you off the top spot with flicks from their multicoloured tails or blasts from their weapons.

Choose from a variety of Snakeball riders – and if you want something more personal,
you can map your own face onto a rider with the next-generation PLAYSTATION®Eye USB camera.

Three game modes: feed the snake to make it grow as long as possible in one-player mode;
take on the fiendish defences of each arena in Challenge Mode;
or battle up to eight other Snakeballers from around the world in Online Mode.

Snakeball is exclusive to PSN and will arrive in the PlayStation Store this summer.

What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog things will go digital, as much as i fight it, i can see it happening by PS6. but streaming seems like a novel way to get around BC and nothing more. (0 minute ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog especially with the stonger focus on bigger resolutions. we can barely stream 720p with reasonable input lag, how do you expect them to do it 4k or hell, 8k? (1 minute ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @droezelke: given there seems to be a lack of development in that area recently, with most forerunners giving up entirely. i doubt that's the future (3 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker You do have to wonder how it would have looked right now if GTAO hadn't been that insane succes. Would've we had more Rockstar games on current gen now? I think so (4 minutes ago)

    alimokrane @droezelke: Streaming in 8k... maybe (29 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @KORNdog: I don't believe there will be a PS6. By that time I suspect it will become a streaming service. (46 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog the problem we have as fans of the single player component is that R* have a ridiculously popular online element. one i imagine it's difficult for them to walk away from to make a new mainline GTA (55 minutes ago)
