D3 announced today that Puzzle Quest Galactrix
will be available on Xbox Live arcade next week (April 8th) and on the PlayStation Network some time later this spring. I'm not sure why it's taking them so long to get it ported over to the PS3 but I am looking forward to picking up the game next week. Be sure to check out our interview
with one of the producers of the game for more info on the title.
