Hustle Kings on PSN This Thursday


For those of you who play pool (also formally known as billiards), the Pool Sim game known as Hustle Kings will be hitting the North American PlayStation Store this Thursday (the price is to be determined, but I would guess $9.99). The game looks great, and according to Aaron Orsak, the US producer of Hustle Kings, and tournament 8-ball player:

From just straight-up pool to intensely complicated masse, swerve, bank, and spin shots, Hustle Kings gets it right from top to bottom. It’s so realistic that I’ve yet to find a shot that could be done on a real table, even shots I’ve seen the old pros pull off, that couldn’t be pulled off in Hustle Kings. Not one!

There’s also some neat features if you so plan to take advantage of them. First off, you are able to upload your shots to YouTube (I think it’s a great feature that should be implemented into more games), so if you pull off an amazing trick shot, you can show it to the world! Another feature that a lot of you would like is that the game supports in-game XMB soundtrack so you can choose what tunes you want to listen to as you play. George Thorogood and the Destroyers will be very pleased :P.

There’s also a special trophy you can get. It’s a silver trophy and the only way to get it is by beating someone at a game who already has the trophy. The catch is, only the developers have it at first, so in order for it to get out to the general public, someone will first have to beat a developer in a multiplayer match (so yes, this is a trophy where, in order to get it, you have to play the game online). In my opinion, that’s actually a pretty neat idea, despite the fact that I prefer not being forced to play online to get a trophy :lol:.

    The platinum trophy sounds awesome. I’m hoping for a demo. I definitely need to check out the smoothness of the whole thing (I want it to be 60fps smooth or it has to have very high quality motion blur to make up for lack of 60fps). The inferno pool demo was fun and fast paced but this is a simulation and I tend to like the simulations better.

    Some people say it’s not an accurate simulation in certain respects. I wouldn’t know but the game is stunning fun to play, especially online. I’ve played it more than MW2. Enjoy America.

    I honestly meant silver. Somehow my hands typed platinum :)

    I can only recommend the game, been playing it for a lot last week. If you’re slightly interested in pool, this is your game.
