Tetris for the PlayStation 3 was a downloadable game on the PlayStation Network. It was originally delisted on around January 9, 2014.


Tetris (PlayStation 3) uses the standard Guideline ruleset for gameplay, and most of its modes are based on the PSP version.

Other features include high-definition graphics, 5.1-channel surround sound, replay functionality, leaderboards and online multiplayer.

Single Player modes


A standard variable-goal Marathon mode with selectable starting level.


12 mini-game modes. The player must clear 40 lines on any Variant to complete the stage. All Variants except Radical have selectable starting levels, and all other Variants except Origin and Treadmill use cascade gravity.

  • Origin – Standard Tetris gameplay.
  • Treadmill – The blocks within the playfield shift 4 cells to the right for every piece dropped.
  • Gravity – Standard gameplay with cascade gravity.
  • FloodGarbage lines are added to the bottom every 7 moves.
  • Ledges – The player must place tetrominoes on a set of non-clearable blocks at the bottom of the playfield. Any blocks that pass through the ledge will fall and disappear from the playfield.
  • Laser – The player must clear lines below a laser line at the top of the playfield which goes down for every piece drop. Clearing a line moves the laser back up the playfield.
  • Magnetic – Two groups of tetrominoes, each colored red and blue, are dropped onto the playfield. Blocks of the same color attract to each other after a line clear.
  • Scanner – Completed lines remain in place until a scanner crosses the playfield, which clears any lines after 10 moves.
  • Split – The player alternates between the two halves of the playfield on which to drop pieces.
  • Chill – Blocks are "frozen" at 3-move intervals. When frozen twice, the blocks will remain on the playfield after a line has been cleared with these blocks.
  • Flashlight – Only the columns around the current piece on the playfield are illuminated. Hard dropping or line clearing will briefly flash the entire playfield.
  • Radical – Standard gameplay with 20G gravity.


Using any of the 12 Variants, the player must have a higher score than a previous replay of another local or online player.

Multiplayer modes


Head-to-head Marathon gameplay. The player wins either by completing Level 15 or topping out last.
