Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath Only on PS3?
Seems like Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath might only be making its way to the PS3 this coming Easter. According to Just Add Water they’ve received a good amount of flack for announcing that they are bringing back “Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath” revamped, for the PS3. Questions have been raised as to why the team has decided to make this a PS3 exclusive, others have asked why they aren’t making it for the Xbox, and others have asked the team not to be dicks, and support the 360.
The team responded with the following:
So what’s the story, whilst I can’t go into complete detail on this, I can tell you that we are NOT PS3 Exclusive. As far as we are concerned we are a multi-platform company, supporting the big 3, PC/PS3 & 360.
Now with regard to Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath on the 360 there are a number of factors that are currently sitting in our way to announce a 360 version of the title, whilst we can’t go into all the details, what I can say is we are working with Microsoft to get the title on that platform, however the final decision is NOT ours. One thing we can discuss in regard to the 360 version is the size of the game. On XBLA there is a 2GigaByte size limit we have to adhere to, currently the title weighs in at 2.1GB and that is without any updates, so either we have to pull a miracle out of the bag with some type of amazing compression system, or ask Microsoft to increase their 2GB limit, however this limit is apparently hardware led, so please let us try and make a miracle happen.
Supporting the big 3? What happened to the Wii? Didn’t it outsell the PS3 and the Xbox? Maybe they are just saying that the Wii can’t handle the game? What do you think?
