Good Deal: 'Super Stardust HD' celebrates fifth anniversary with $8 sale

Super Stardust HD recently turned five — the twin-stick shooter launched on the PlayStation Network on June 28th, 2007 — and Helsinki-based developer Housemarque is celebrating the milestone with a sale.

Super Stardust HD recently turned 5 — the twin-stick shooter launched on the PlayStation Network on June 28th, 2007 — and Helsinki-based developer Housemarque is celebrating the milestone with a sale.

From today, August 8th, through September 5th, Super Stardust HD and its three downloadable add-ons — 2008's "Solo" and "Team" expansions, and last year's new "Impact" mode — are available in a bundle for the low, low price of $7.99. The game itself usually costs that much, so people who buy the bundle will save $12 on the cost of the DLC: $4.99 each for the Solo and Team packs, and $1.99 for Impact.

Housemarque points out a few fun facts. Super Stardust HD was the first game to offer PlayStation Trophies, and it remains one of the few games to offer 60 frames-per-second gameplay in 3D at 1080p — which means that it actually renders 120 frames in 1080p every second. The mind boggles at those numbers, and at the bundle's sale price.
