High Velocity Bowling is a virtual bowling sports game available from the PlayStation Network, and available for download Via the Playstation Store. The game was released December 6th 2007 for the PlayStation 3. The game was developed by SCEA San Diego and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. The game was first announced at the SCEA's Gamers Day 2007 at their Santa Monica Studios. The European release date was originally scheduled for a April 2008 release, but this was then delayed until May because of the new and improved Playstation Store, included in Firmware 2.3. The game was finally released in Europe on May 6th 2008.
High Velocity Bowling varies from other bowling games by introducing a challenge mode. The player has to go through every level to unlock all of the 10 playable characters and all of the 10 lanes. Each level has 3 challenges to complete. These challenges can be tournaments, matches or trick shots, where the objective is to get a strike while following a certain road. The game also has a trophy room, in which the player can see his trophies, rings and patches he gained through the game. While the player can use the SIXAXIS for the bowling swing, there are other control schemes in the game. Finally, High Velocity Bowling has a multiplayer mode, where up to 4 people can play online and offline.
