On a bigger scale, on a cultural level, pixel art has evolved. It is no longer seen as a limited interpretation of the physical world but is self-referential and continually pushing outside the boundaries of the technology it is aping.
Better dust off that collection of masks because the first Hotline Miami will be coming to PlayStation 4 to coincide with the release of its sequel.
Making its console debut, Hotline Miami is a gore-filled shooter that blew away the PC world with its trippy visuals and visceral gameplay. For fans of indie games and Humble Bundles, Hotline Miami has been a bizarre treasure since it was released last October. However, hitting consoles is something completely different.

Indie hit and critical smash Hotline Miami will be making the jump to consoles when it arrives on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita this spring.
