Fez will be ported to other platforms, says Polytron

Destructoid- Were you starting to get worried that Fez wouldn't appear on platforms other than Xbox Live Arcade? Despite knowing that Polytron is a small operation, I was. In a reflective post by Phil Fish which teases what might be next for his studio, the designer drops the news that, yes, the game "will finally be ported to other platforms." (Fez, Xbox 360)

Really awesome news. This was easily the best game I played all year and I was really hoping it would be ported to other systems. Everyone should experience the joy of Fez!

This would be really saucy on Vita with that OLED screen. Would look incredible.

I wonder what other systems they will choose. They will probably skip PS3/Vita because they dont want to pay for updates. They stopped doing updates on the xbox version because it cost them money.

steam then?

Well that leaves wii u or pc, unless nintendo doesn't charge for updates on 3ds
Moncole  +   624d ago
Updates on the Wii U are free for indie dves and they pick the price of the game.

Well that leaves wii u, ouya, or pc, unless nintendo doesn't charge for updates on 3ds. Sorry about the double post it double posted instead of editing it.

Polytron could easily make an arrangement with Sony before releasing Fez on PS3. SCEA exec Adam Boyes said this summer that they're trying to make PSN easier for devs to work with. This after Polytron refused to pay for a Fez patch on XBLA in July.

Either way, if/when Fez releases for PSN it'll have all the updates by default. No reason not to release it on PSN as it would be more up to date than the XBLA version day one.

More up to date, doesn't mean bug free on PSN. In fact, it might have other bugs the Xbox Live Arcade version wouldn't have. This is due to differences in the architecture as well as how easy it is for a developer to work with the tools available (or even how buggy the tools are in some cases).

That is just the nature of programming.

I doubt they'll skip PS3, and PC is also definite.

iOS would make sense

Platforming on a touch screen? Yuck.

SONY doesn't charge for updates on the PS3/PS Vita. That's Microsoft your talkin' about.
Yodagamer  +   624d ago
Tim Schafer, of double fine, has stated in an interview sony charges for ps3 patches as well as microsoft. In this article in the last paragraph under independence day he states it can cost $40,000 to patch on both ps3 and xbox. http://www.hookshotinc.com/...

Eww why would they do that...They should let developers patch their games for free so that they can fix bugs and glitches. Wow I had no idea this was going on, shame on both Microsoft and Sony.

They do it so devs think twice before release a buggy piece of shit (like Skyrim). They don't want broken games on release. The trend is too common these days for a buggy game to be released with some day 1 patch.

I won't buy cause the douchebag guy Phil Fish said to the Japanese designers that they Suck. He needs to get punched in the Face, what an Asshole.
Neckbear  +   624d ago
And he will reply:

"Suck my dick and choke on it".

What a charming guy.
Tales RPG addict  +   624d ago
You don't have Japanese designers during a Speech saying the American Gamers "Your Games suck". No cause the Japanese have more honor than Phil Fish that ASSHOLE.
League_of_Draven  +   624d ago
And I wouldn't buy it even if it was $0.01 cause of his remarks.

Good this is an awesome game and more people should be able to play it.
Megaton  +   624d ago
Hope it comes to PC and gets Humble Bundled so I can pay for it and not give any money to the developer, only to charity. Phil Fish can be quite a character, to put it nicely. I hear his game is good, but I would rather not give him any money for it.

OSX, PSN, Vita please.
r21  +   624d ago
Yes, vita version please :D The OLED screen will welcome it!
