Telltale Announces First Console Downloadable Series Preorder With New Sam & Max

Fans of Telltale's episodic Sam & Max games can pre-order the full upcoming Devil’s Playhouse series on PSN -- the first time a downloadable game has been available for pre-order on a console. Users who buy the series early via the PS3's PlayStation Network get $5 off the $34.95 price of the full series, a promotion that lasts until the series' first episode hits. Pre-orderers also get a free Telltale game episode, plus access to a private fan forum and preview area where they can be part of chats with creator Steve Purcell and the design team. Thus far, the latest in the Sam & Max series -- which is also being published on the PC and Mac -- has only been confirmed for PlayStation 3 thus far, with Telltale apparently eschewing the Xbox 360, a home for earlier Sam & Max episodes. The episodic Sam & Max series sprang from earlier LucasArts adventure games, themselves inspired by creator Purcell's comic book work in the late 1980s. The story-driven games feature a pair of detectives, an anthropomorphic dog and rabbit, solving mysteries with a comedic tone. "This is the first time Sony has executed a pre-order campaign, and we couldn’t be happier that the dog and bunny duo are leading the way," says Telltale.
