Jetpack Joyride jumps to PS3 and Vita, free-to-play

Jetpack Joyride is getting the HD treatment and heading to PlayStation Network for both PS3 and Vita. Best of all, the auto-running game will be free-to-play, much like its mobile phone progenitor.

The PSN port will be available on December 31, and includes leaderboards and trophies. Expect to invest quite a bit of time if you want to unlock all the achievements, as you'll have to finish all the missions and unlock all the gadgets, clothing, jet-packs, and vehicle upgrades. Undoubtedly, paying for some of the in-game microtransactions will hasten the trophy-unlocking process.

"Jetpack Joyride has come a long way in 2012, and we're thrilled to bring it to PS3 and Vita," Halfbrick CEO Phil Larsen said in a press release.
