It looks gross, but cool at the same time, but im not going to break a nail over not being able to play this on the PS3

"We had started development of SMB for PC, Wii, Xbox and Ps3. we had kits for all systems and the game ran on all consoles. We submitted our current build to MS and Sony and it was as simple as Sony not getting back to us expressing interest in picking up the title and MS grabbing it up as soon as we submitted it."

@Disagrees
I mean that the title isn't the same as the article's.

Not on PSN?
Oh well, already played the Meat Boy flash from my computer :P

So from my previous experience I'm not too excited about it. But that's just my personal opinion. I'm sure many peeps may like it though.
Let's just see just how "Super" this version will be and I might just check it out via Wii or maybe XBL something :)

With a name like Conloles...
Why are you in almost every console article?

There's plenty of PC articles for you to browse through.

Oh wait.

This has to be in the running for the most hypocritical statement ever.

[@Mikeslemonade]PSN IS full of shovelware too...
[@Disagrees] I don't get why so many disagrees to some people who are just stating quotes from the article.
Imperator  +   2035d ago
I had never heard about this game before, but it looks pretty interesting. Might check it out on XBLA.
Coffin87  +   2034d ago
google the flash version of meat boy. pretty fun.
PSfan09  +   2035d ago
looks like the wii it is (for me at least)
rumplstilts  +   2035d ago
I have all the platforms it is releasing for, save the PS3, and Imma pick up the Wii version for the NES style Wiimote controls. It is bliss for platformers.
NeutralGamer  +   2034d ago
@rumplstilts
I thought the same...
Wii have the best controller for classic gaming, but I'm still getting the XBLA version like I did with Megaman 9 and 10 :I

I like having all my arcade games gathered one place...
Persistantthug  +   2035d ago
Seriously, this is only a game I would play if it was free........
It pretty much is a flash'ish type game....like, one you would play for free off of NEWGROUNDS or something like that.

No, NeutralGamer.....I'm not "just mad".....I'm telling the truth from the YouTube video.
This was the first time I had seen or heard of this game.....

And I'm not saying it's trash, but it clearly is more like one of those flash games.....and those are usually free.

Meat Boy is not a game I would buy, I don't care what system I have.
That's the truth from what I have seen.

Folezicle  +   2034d ago
No it's coming to the PC and the 360 too.
rroded  +   2034d ago
hey i earned my nick
after my third rrod lol n ya imma bitter but still respect gamers who like the 360 jus dont ask me ta buy another k

dont really care what console this games out on it jus dont appeal ta me graphics arnt the only reason either. Game looks jus plain frustrating n the idea of being a meatball dont turn my crank...
NYPunkster  +   2034d ago
Ah well that life. There plenty of great PSN games that will fill it's place.

Boring dumb game. Played the demo
Johnny_Bravo  +   2035d ago

Looks like N, with the level creation removed, and a Ninja replaced with a meatsack.

I guess that's fun, but I'd rather play N. Because of the level editor, well, and Ninjas look cooler.

Haha
I'm glad someone else noticed that.

Then again, World of Goo was a lot like Elephunk...except much better. Lol.
agingerbreadbum  +   2034d ago
welll...
it has a ninja you can play as too, you play as more characters than meat boy, heck if you saw all the stuff on this game it's pretty interesting... i might buy it... but then again, i am a cheap ass
MajestieBeast  +   2035d ago
I would rather see cave story on psn even though i finished it long ago on pc.
tiamat5  +   2035d ago
I have learned in all my years of gaming that it's best to save the jealously and want for a game until you actually hear the reviews for it. SMB could be complete crap and we might not want it on PSN. exclusivity doesn't necessarily equal quality
PSfan09  +   2035d ago
lets be honest
i can live without this game or play it on my pc, lets not make a big deal about an arcade game

too late, the article is coming close to 300 degrees
chad22hkd  +   2035d ago
well that sucks
this game is a lot of fun, i have played the flash version a bit. Man i would love it for the psp, to have on the go!
LeonSKennedy4Life  +   2035d ago
Hm...
That's disheartening. I mean...they can't greenlight everything, right?

I get indie games on PC usually. :) Of course, most of them are from sales on Steam.

When is iFluid coming to the iPhone?!?!?
LedZeppelin  +   2035d ago
I played meatboy and that was pretty legit so im looking forward to this...i mean its a classic platformer
KwietStorm  +   2035d ago
I never heard of this game before. Is it really that highly anticipated/popular?

chad22hkd  +   2035d ago
yeah man it got great reviews on the wii. You can try the flash version it's fun but the controls are difficult. But if you love old 2d games. You will love the platforming on this.
xino  +   2034d ago
another mistake from sony
just like they did with Demon's Soul!
Blaine  +   2034d ago
What are you trying to imply?
I don't understand how Demon's Souls can be called a mistake in any way, shape, or form. One of the best games I've ever played, one of the few games this gen worthy of being called hardcore, and they made a full translation for NA (and other regions too, I think, but I got the NA version so it's the only one I care about--no offense to anyone else!).

I don't see where the mistake is.
DigitalAnalog  +   2034d ago
@Blaine:
Sorry to say but xino is right.

Sony did admit their mistake for NOT publishing the Demon's Souls game themselves ever since Atlus proved the "niche" franchise to be very successful despite only passed through "word-of-mouth". Seeing how SMB was also rejected similarly because it didn't appeal to SONY (as a whole), at least someone had the BALLS to publish Demon's Souls.

Here's the source:

-End statement

Hot damn... I'm shocked Sony didn't want to publish Demon's Souls. It's one of the highest rated titles they have, and one of the best RPGs this generation. Does this mean it could technically appear on other platforms in countries outside of Japan?

On-topic:

This might be a major potential f*ck up on Sony's part. If the game is doing well and being received well, then people are going to miss out if Sony is passing this up.

No because as far as I know Sony owns the IP. Sony Japan helped out with the title, too
drummerx2709  +   2034d ago

And yes it freakin awesome!

drummerx2709  +   2034d ago
Eh some people will like it and some won't. I thought it was pretty entertaining for the most part.

I like the look of Super Meat Boy but if they don't want my money fine I'm sure some other developer will get it now
vickers500  +   2034d ago
The devs want your money, but in this instance, Sony doesn't.

Mastergalen  +   2034d ago
Never heard of this game, so who actually gives a sh*t?
Lucreto  +   2034d ago
I don't see the problem really. Sony wants a working demo and it is tested for bugs and errors before a decision is made.

MS will grab everything it can and if it is bad it will just sink to the bottom like all the rubbish games they approve.
Akagi  +   2034d ago
Joooooooooeeeeeeee Dangerrrrrrrrrrr.

"we submitted our current build to MS and Sony and it was as simple as Sony not getting back to us expressing interest"

In other words, it just didn't pass Sony's quality control ;)

These guys should start hiring devs, you can't get much done with two people, not when it comes to game development.
