With GamesCom in full swing all eyes are on Germany for the latest news from the gaming world. We’ve already seen some sweet Vita games get their share of the limelight, including the pretty rad looking Escape Plan. However, Sony has tossed we happy few PSN journalists a bone with some release dates for 3 games. In a press release sent to us today, Sony has put formal dates on PAYDAY: The Heist, Sideway: New York, and Rochard. Of those three, Rochard is the only one that we haven’t done a preview or news post on already. So allow me (well…actually the press release) enlighten you:

An action-adventure, side-scrolling puzzle platformer, Rochard follows the story of the astro-miner John Rochard as he uses his wits and everyday mining tools to fend off space pirates, save his team of missing miners and solve the mystery behind the discovery of an ancient alien artifact.Rochard tests players’ coordination as they manipulate gravity to their advantage, changing it at will to solve environmental puzzles and advance through each level.

For those inclined to see more of Rochard, Giant Bomb has a Quick Look up of the game that can be found here. The trailer is also embedded below:

As for the other two, check out the links above for more information (Payday: The Heist is talked about at the end of Ben’s PSN Play article above and is accompanied by a trailer). There is no word yet on when these titles will be made available in the EU store nor any indication of price. The prices and release dates for all three games from the press release are listed below:

PAYDAY: The Heist – October 4 $19.99

Sideway: New York – October 11 $9.99

Rochard – September 27 $9.99

So what’s the verdict? Which of these games are you guys looking forward to?
