VG247 can exclusively confirm that Oddworld developer Just Add Water is to release a revamped, HD version of Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath for PS3 next Easter
man the Move gains more and more hardcore games, btw its damn time to see a Oddworld game on a HD console
I remember playing this on my Xbox. Fun times.
I really wanted to play this last gen on PS2, and was super disappointed that it was Xbox-only, but I'm really happy now that I can play it :D.
Never played it but one of my friends raves about it, as it's one of his all time favorites. Very exciting to know I'll finally be able to play it.
One of the best games last gen - had super fun playing it. Can't wait to play it now on the PS3
LOL.. people are going on like this was an Xbox exclusive, it was on the PS2 as well. The only exclusive Oddworld game Microsoft had was Munches game. I think people are getting it confused with that.
@Kyro Oddworld:Stranger's Wrath was a XBOX exclusive. "Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is an action-adventure game developed by Oddworld Inhabitants and published by Electronic Arts for the Microsoft Xbox." Wikipedia I find this news very very surprising. If anything I would have expected game to be released on xbl as well. I'll have to give this game a try. 720p + MOVE support sounds great.
@KyRo it was a xbox exclusive - EA did do a PS2 port but they never released it, at least not here in the US.
My bad my memories failing me :D
. It's been a long time since I've played the first Oddworld Abe's game. Great MOVE support too.
Yeah,.. I purchased the original Xbox (back in the day) for this game - It’s worth it. I will be picking it up without question. Looking forward to the move support and the whip to pull in my bounties!!!
I thought this was a joke.. Now I cry tears of joy.
So to a noob like me, what is this game and why should I care? (I mean no disrespect, just curious)
The Oddworld Series is a IP based on a world with many different characters and stories with a unique art style and different gameplays. In the PSX Era the Oddworld Series debuted as Platformer with Abe's Odyssey with astounishing 3D effects and rendering. Also the gameplay was really challenging. Following were a sequel and various 3D Adventure games on the Xbox like Munch's Odyssey and Strangers Wrath. And seriously, Strangers Wrath was one of the best Xbox Games out there.
...easily one of, if not THE best Oddworld title. It was a far more profound story than any of its predecessors and featured a truly tormented and touching story.
This is awesome news! I never played this game on Xbox, but I always heard how awesome it is. I remember wanting to get it, but I had sold my Xbox and gotten a 360 to replace it, and this game wasn't on the backward compatible list, so I never bought it. I don't know if it ever got patched onto the BC list or not, but after a while I just sort of forgot about it. Now it's coming to PS3 with Move support, and it looks like a great sort of game for Move. Can't wait!
Yup, about time the odd came back. I remember the day I found out that MS had bought the franchise for a time and the rumoured to be 95% done ps2 munch was binned. A sad day. The oddworld games and kung fu chaos (for parties) was about all I missed when I sold my original Xbox.
Loved the PS1 Oddworld games.
This is the best news EVER, i love Oddworld Edit: PSN Exclusive
Its on a bluray
PSN only confirmed
Is this exclusive then?
...at least it is only confirmed for PS3 for now
PlayStation Move support too.
I hope it comes to XBLA too. I tried to play the original game on my 360 but it wasn't backwards compatible with that game
I have been in the same situation. I was incredibly pissed they wouldn't support BC of one of the best Xbox 1 games.
It's a full retail title.
Did you read the article? It says it will be download only game
you mean the 360 isnt backwards compatible with all games like most of the fan boys try to say and make fun of the PS3 for not having it lol
But the 360 is backwards compatible with most games and the PS3 is compatible with none. And the Wii can play all Gamecube games
@JohnApocalypse the older ps3 was backwards compatible with alot of ps2 games and all PS3 r campatible with all PS1 games
Actually the PS3 is backwards compatible with more games than 360 or GC. With every PS1 being backwards compatible with PSX titles and the PSX having a larger library than the 360 or Gamecube.
*With every PS3 being...
That's... really stretching it.
Maybe, but it'd be ludicrous to have access to titles like FF7 on the platform, isn't quite a big deal.
now in HD and probably move support etc. Ps3 is a beast son.
Move support confirmed..i thought?
@ Kain81 - Yep, Move support is confirmed.
It started on PS1 with Abe's Oddysee and Abe's Exoddus, great games.
Great, i never played this one.
Has made my weekend now will Easter hurry up so I can get it New PS3 logo it only steals Xbox exclusives
With move support its probably on a bluray Otherwise its not even worth thinking about
It's download. PSN title.
Wow, pretty awesome! another "hardcore" move game for me to play :D I've bought both abes oddosey and exodus from PSN. awesome games, and they've aged quite good due to the whole game being pre-rendered graphics. tricky. but fun. (That god for quicksave on abes exodus)
Only if its on a bluray is this decent news
Unexpected and awesome. This was a great game.
I was just talking to my lil brother about a new oddworld and how it would be awesome,and now this pops out! WOHOOO!! Since this is a remade version + move support,I am really hoping that they are also working on Oddworld 3,also with Move support,that would be INSANE ! xD
DD only=no sale for the majority of us
you ? am buying this DAY1!
What's the big deal with it being PSN Stealth?
Its the principle of not owning the games I buy. DD is borrowing
Do you even KNOW what you're talking about? Seriously
This is an incredible game! Just be happy it's coming. I've been unable to play my Xbox 1 copy for years because it was never supported for 360 BC. I got rid of my Xbox 1 thinking an update would address BC issues. I have e-mailed Microsoft multiple times requesting an update, but it never came. Finally I will be able to play it again. It was one of the best games to ever grace the Xbox 1.
it wasn't an xbox exclusive,only 2 (later) games in the series were exclusive to xbox and didn't sell as much as they did like the 2 PS1 exclusives,the first game in the series "Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee" was a PS1 & Windows exclusives. Same thing goes to PART 2 : Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus Edit : source : http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Edit(2) : @ AKS,yeah actually my bad sorry,I thought it was a remade of the first game in the franchise,but then I checked the title of this article again and it was the xbox exclusive one,sorry again.
This article is specifically about Stranger's Wrath. Given this fact, I have been talking specifically about Stranger's Wrath as well. I'm not sure what the hell you're talking about. Regardless, I am hoping that Stranger's Wrath comes to PC through Steam as well. Porting from Xbox to DirectX has evidently been more difficult than anticipated based on what I've been reading. Edit: @Studio-YaMi OK, I was confused about what you were talking about. No problem.
Thanks dude,bubbles to you
Same to you. You're in for a real treat if you haven't had the pleasure of playing through Stranger's Wrath. It's terrific. I own a copy that's been collecting dust for years because it never received backwards compatibility support through LIVE.
This is one of the very few games I felt I missed by not owning first Xbox.Great news and another use for my Move.
xbox lovers getting butt hurt in this thread is so funny.
Since I think it will be released on XBL too,just a hunch I have,still this is good news to PS3 fans and gamers in general. @ Jack_burt0n don't know about that,do they really ? and why is that ? o.o
Dont oddworld inhabitants hate MS?
This is Brilliant News!!! Hope they release Abe 1 and 2 Remastered in HD! :) I'm sure this is just the start of what Oddworld have in store for us.. :P
Without doubt this was the best Xbox game ever. Because it was actually exclusive (unlike KOTOR) and was GENUINELY innovative (unlike Halo).
KotOR into this, didn't you?
If we don't include exclusivity yes... KOTOR is the best original Xbox game. But it's not exclusive to Xbox... I had to bring it up incase someone said "Oddworld? better than KOTOR? LMAO".
Then it would still be an exclusive. Also, it came out on the Xbox first. Personally, Im always going to see it as an Xbox game, yeah later on it was released on the PC, but so was Halo.
Oddworld back where it should stay, Playstation. Now please give us an HD-remake of Exoddus and Oddysee.
So now Sony is stealing exclusives from last gen. Excellent news.
I agree this is awesome, but you can't blame Sony for MS isn't stepping up their games.
Best adventure from my childhood. I hope, there will be blu-ray version. ^_^
