PS3 Tetris comes at the end of a decade under The Guideline, not the beginning.

If a game like PS3 Tetris had come out 10 years ago, we would likely be having an extremely different conversation right now. It would be a promising release that -- while recognized for its faults -- would give a lot of hope for design improvements and fixes in the future.

"Well, I enjoy it" is a useless frame of reference for actual critique. PS3 is just another release in a meandering, inconsistent, and largely uneventful 10 years of development in which numerous plainly identified areas for improvement were either completely ignored or never collected and solved in one definitive product. I name Tetris Splash, but only because it is a product with fewer letdowns than usual. I had hope for Tetris Friends, but what should have been a rally for improvement toward a well-polished product starting with Tuning and Expert+ ended up being a last hurrah before they went on to cash in on fans once again with Tetris Battle, a half-hearted engine fork with fewer features, but more monetization.

I like PS3 Tetris but TPD really was bad though, you gotta admit. Even the Japanese hate it and they are official game fanatics. Some TPD issues:

But you guys are never satisfied with any new & official Tetris game anyway. When Tetris Party Deluxe came out you all jumped on that too. Guess I'm just bad enough at the game that I still can enjoy it.

No button remapping, no DAS preservation, entry delay is a pointless 6 frames that serves merely to be awkward rather than be of any use to preparing moves, input filtering prevents rolling from left/right -> up, game literally lags (which results in sound corruption and dropped inputs), single player modes are filler gimmicks as always... and so on. The singular thing that could be seen as some form of improvement from previous iterations is that they decided to leave out Combos in their current, controversially powerful form.

Questionable tuning and unacceptable input bugs and performance lag... It wholeheartedly deserves the snobbishness. Where is the love for Tetris Splash?

There are some good players and a handful of great players. Worth the $10, and definitely worth the $5 I paid for it (seems to go on sale often). And I knew you guys wouldn't let me down with the snobbishness in this thread! GJ guys.

So good sales? I wonder where are players then? Maybe crying somewhere about wasted money. :-P
