Secret Sony PlayStation Network game titled Nine-to-Five leaked: its a PS3 episodic interactive sitcom
When filling out an e-rewards gaming survey one day, Rjosephson soon discovered it focused on online gaming, Sony [Online Entertainment], PS3, PlayStation Network, downloadable game pricing between $20, $25 & $60, and episodic content.
This of course is all unofficial and subject to change, but it got really interesting when he was asked about an upcoming game called Nine-to-Five. This game apparently will be the first downloadable [PS3] title to implement Sony’s plan for episodic content. The pricing structure was suggested at $5 for 1 episode or about $14 for all 4 episodes if you were to preorder the entire package at first. Each episode would be about 3 hours in playtime and be released once a month for four months straight. They included two screenshots which looked kind of cartoony.
