Team Meat, developer of Super Meat Boy, has confirmed via Twitter and their official blog that Super Meat Boy will never be available on the PlayStation 3. EVER!
PlayStation 3 doesn't really need it.
Congrats on making the worst comment I've ever read on this site. That's truly an accomplishment. The butthurt is astounding. It's really a shame that PS3 owners are not going to be able to experience this game, as it's truly an awesome title.
WipEout HD, Pixeljunk Series, Flower, Dead Nation, Joe Danger, etc etc, there are plenty of PSN only titles that will stay that way as well. "PlayStation 3 doesn't really need it." Is actually true. There are loads of exclusive PSN titles to play, it would have been nice to get it, but ah well. The gamers who only own a PS3 aren't the only ones who will miss out, Team Meat the devs are going to miss out on sales.
Its just like the 360 doesn't need any of the PS3 games...imo.
Whatever Smacktard, PS3 owners lives will go on just fine without this "truly awesome" title.
Wait, 360 fans say that the 360 doesn't need MGS4, but some say that the PS3 is at a substantial loss because of SUPER MEAT BOY; not to mention that you could probably build it in LBP 1 and/or 2? http://www.youtube.com/watc... Just like a test, I cram to understand you.
System Requirements OS: Microsoft® Windows® XP / Vista / 7 Processor: 1.4GHz or faster Memory: 768 MB Ram Graphics: Video card that supports Pixel Shader 2.0 or greater DirectX®: DirectX® 9.0c Hard Drive: 100 MB Controller Support: Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller or direct input compatible controller for Windows any PS3 owner who has a PC should be able to easily play this game.
I have access to a PS3...I envy no one.
Are you guys seriously responding this way? I thought N4G grew out of the butthurt fanboy phase. I, for one, welcome every new and exciting title that comes to my platform of choice. I have games I bought that I haven't even had a chance to OPEN or PLAY, let alone BEAT, and still I'm excited every time I learn of a new and interesting game coming my way. Basically, I never try to make the argument "YA LOL WE DONT NEED THAT GAEM NE WAYZ ITS 4 LOOSERS" because I'm not an immature little girl fanboy. But, I mean, if you really feel the need to jump to the defense of a video game console on the internet, go ahead. Whatever floats your boat. I'm sorry that PS3-only owners won't be able to play SMB because it really is an incredible title.
We don't think Super Meatboy matters, you do. Apparently you don't think we should have our own opinion. But it matters little since you are one of the most documented Sony haters on this site. Anyone that thinks Microsoft doesn't trash talk as much as Sony is delusional. Even 360 supporters know that Greenburg and his team are the champs in that department. Yet here you are saying it doesn't matter if Complex from Goldeneye was left out of the new version while others feel it is important. http://n4g.com/news/551550/... See the correlation? Don''t even bother trying to explain your way out of this one. You can't. It's hypocritical at best.
Ah well, I might get this game on PC. It looks good, but not every indie game makes it to all platforms. PS3 owners miss out on this one, but they still have plenty of great games to play.
SMB is amazing the fanboys are in denial super meat boy on the other hand... :) nah im just kidding they are both great
One of the most well-documented PS3 haters on the site? ROFL. I'd like some proof, please. I think the PS3 is a great system with tons of interesting exclusives, and if I had the money to buy one, and the time to play it, I would definitely have one. I have no idea where you're getting the idea that I'm a PS3 basher. And there's a difference between a game missing content, and a console missing a game. When an extremely good game comes it, it would be most wondrous if it were available on all forms of gaming devices, so that more and more people can play it and enjoy the experience. Complex was an average Goldeneye map, in my opinion. Sucks that it's not part of the game for those that were looking forward to it. I feel for them, but that's just one piece of content not included in a remake. You can't compare one thing like that to an entire GAME missing from a console's library. @Parapraxis: great way of putting it.
Whoopty freakin' do! It's not like there isn't a plethora (this means an excess of by the way, in case it's too big of a word for you to comprehend) of other titles to choose from. I'm not butthurt in the least and never would have known about it had it not been for this article.
I dont know what this game is, I never heard of it. How far did it came with the xbox? First saying how awesome kinect is and now showing some super awesome games which the ps3 doesnt have? Hahaha, the xbox is really going down.
Blame it on Sony for not wanting this game on PSN, even though Team Meat were willing to develop a PSN version.
Sorry, but I call things as I see them. I've trash-talked bad decisions Sony's made just as I've trash-talked bad decisions Nintendo and Microsoft have made too. If you want my true opinion, I believe that the Xbox 360 is largely irrelevant. This site is just too blinded by Sony fanboyism to accept the truth when someone says anything anti-PS3.
*sigh* Ok I just typed up a huge thing, and then hit the wrong button on my keyboard, spazz tapped a few buttons and lost it all, and I will not go through it again. >_< So here's the quick and short of it. I hate the idea of a one console only game world. What's the biggest thing stopping that? Good exclusive games. I don't think it's bad if theres a game I want thats only out on another system, why? because like the real world...YOU DON'T GET EVERYTHING YOU WANT. And again it breeds competition and innovation. FYI This is myself, but I'm sure theres a lot of Sony fans out there who agree with me on this. I have NOTHING against the 360. Not one God damn thing. I've had a lot of fun playing it when I have! Almost bought one a time or two but here's the thing. A few years back when the Ps3 launched...I had to put up with a solid two years of the most absolute bullshit articles I've ever read by the biggest idiots of their respective generations that were still smart enough to bang there heads against their keyboards and put words on the page. The Ps3 is the third fastest selling console of all time...and I HAD TO PUT UP WITH YEARS OF THAT TRASH! Anyways, so I don't hate the 360 perse...I just hate a lot of their idiotic fans and hope that the opposite of everything they ever said happens and then they die. ^_^ j/k.... >.>
One hot summer’s day a Fox was strolling through an orchard till he came to a bunch of Grapes just ripening on a vine which had been trained over a lofty branch. “Just the things to quench my thirst,” quoth he. Drawing back a few paces, he took a run and a jump, and just missed the bunch. Turning round again with a One, Two, Three, he jumped up, but with no greater success. Again and again he tried after the tempting morsel, but at last had to give it up, and walked away with his nose in the air, saying: “I am sure they are sour.”
Really? So you're the authority of what the Playstation 3 needs and doesn't need? Perhaps Sony should hire you as their marketing leader. I think this is yet another black eye in this industry. Im sure XBOX360 owners who dont have a Playstation 3 would love games like Joe Danger yet politics seems to have gotten in the way of that title too of ever coming to that system. Games should be enjoyed by as many as possible. I am fortunate enough to have the funds to support more than one system. Some dont and some dont want to. That's fine but securing titles to limit the user-base at the expense of trying to sell hardware seems rather mis-fortunate.
Uh oh! Is that LOGIC I see? Better disagree, because I feel the need to defend a video game console on the internet, even though what you said is not offensive in any way at all, and has now logical flaws.
Doesn't mean I wouldn't want that game on the system. Everyone said it's awesome, too bad their contract doesn't allow them to make a PS3 version.
I wouldn't buy it
The arcade game on PSN are laughable, Sony could be doing with a game like this. I LOL so hard at all the butthurt PS3 lames on this site i LOL so hard!
What is super meatboy. Oh it's on pc. NVm.
Can PS fanboys stop being so haughty?
"The arcade game on PSN are laughable, Sony could be doing with a game like this. I LOL so hard at all the butthurt PS3 lames on this site i LOL so hard! " butthurt ? living in opposite/dream world can cause serious brain dammages :) almost all is better for ps3, the only one searching for little problems, differences, or happy for ridiculous little games, or even sells, are the ms employee like you, "butthurt" is a word invented for xbobots since 2007. "bububububuthurt" by the way, psn games are almost everyday way better than xbl little games (but 1080 wipe out, 3D tumble, flower with tons of polygones can't be done on 360)
Not even if there's a fire!
Step Brothers reference. haha Yeah, I won't lose any sleep over not getting to play this game. The PSN has plenty of quality games to play.
360 fanboys love da meat.
Thats a shame, SMB is one of the most brutal games ive played in a very long time, it has that Geometry Wars 'just one more shot' feel to it.
Super What? Oh well...
“We Cant EVER do a ps3 version of super meat boy because when we were going into negotiations with publishers Sony was the only one who didn’t express much interest in the game. We assumed this ment that they didn’t want the game and decided to sign with Nintendo and Microsoft. Our contracts excluded any release on Ps3. We would have loved to do a ps3 version, but its not at all possible what so ever now. so please stop asking about it.”
Not that I give a shit about the game (and I don't get the "love" for it by some of the people above), but this might deserve an answer from Sony about what went on. That and they do sound to be a bunch of douchebags. "We're tired of people asking us for something we obviously don't care about pushing the issue. Stop demanding it, even when enough people demanding it might make Sony take a second look at their 'denial' of the game." Actually, it sounds like they aren't telling us the entire story. There's some holes there. Did they have similar issues with the other people who wanted it? MS, Nintendo, Steam? Did they push the issue there, too? Again, this is not saying that I would care if the PSN gets this thing or not, but this sounds to me like they're making excuses.
it such a shame its such a good game
am i supposed to be sad. i couldn't care less. Lbp2>>>>>> this piece of crap.
Sony should support more developers when it comes down to PSN. In fact, alot of them have stated that they simply don't have the resources to get a PS3 dev kit, and the 360 is easier to develop for, wich is why the Xbox Live Marketplace has more games (And, arguably, alot of them are great) and is the perfect place for small, indie games. Sony should really do something about it, I'd like to see more ports and indie games. Ikaruga, for example, would be a game I would buy without thinking twice if it was up on PSN. Well, at least they're somewhat doing something, since Sony Online Entertainment is helping Rockin' Android publish their games on PSN. I would like to see more things like that.
its not just that the 360 is easier to develop for - its the fact that if you have a PC that can run Visual Studio, you can make a 360 XBLA game. thats seriously all you need. there is no publicly available PS3 dev environment, nor any hardware that could test the games even if there was. Microsoft absolutely left Sony for dead in this department.
NOT COMING TO PS3 EVER!!!!! omg omg omg im going to dieee!! help
Just kidding...or am i?
I don't recall any PS3 owners asking for it...
Looks like crap to me. Looks like no replay value
" We assumed this ment that they didn’t want the game." ASSUMPTIONS!
PS3 owners, we found a reason to sell our PS3's and pick up a 360... I'm so excited to finally be able to trade in my PS3 at Gamestop and finally be able to get along with the fanboy employees there!! I can't wait to play Super Meatboy!! /S hey Team Meat... No one cares because ur game is on PC also, you know that other device that 90% of 360 "exclusives" are also on...
Is this really necessary? Should we do this for every game? The entire front page would look like this: LittleBigPlanet 2 not coming to Xbox 360. Ever. Killzone 3 not coming to Xbox 360. Ever. Gran Turismo 5 not coming to Xbox 360. Ever. The Last Guardian not coming to Xbox 360. Ever. Twisted Metal not coming to Xbox 360. Ever. Team ICO Collection not coming to Xbox 360. Ever. Sorcery not coming to Xbox 360. Ever. LittleBigPlanet 2 not coming to Xbox 360. Ever. Sounds counter-productive if you ask me.
with posts like these its really hard to take people seriously. very child like.
How is it child-like? The article states nothing new and is simply inflammatory. We come here for news, not reasons for debate.
how can u compare full time big blockbusters wit a tiny little indie game? i thought it was better to have more games than just a few games
We'll get SMB (perhaps even better) once LBP 2 comes out.
Yeah some one will make it in LBP 2 for those who want it
haha who really cares
it reall take your apetite away.
my life is over /s
The only thing i downloaded from PSN was Monkey island. Plus im sure they will recreate it with LBP2
Don't remember any of us clamoring for Super Meat Boy.Why do you have to say it like that? Super Meat Boy is not coming for PS3 EVER. Is that some sort of threat or taunt or something that is supposed to bother us? Talk about drama queens.
I have never even heard of this game before today and I periodically check various gaming websites throughout my work day, every day of the week, to keep up-to-date with the latest and greatest. Which leads me to believe that Super Meat Boy is nothing special and certainly nothing to be upset about. In summary: No one will care about this except the x-bots who are trying to make the game sound better than it really is.
NO one needs games but it's better if they reach a larger audience. Imma get this on Pc if you can. You can right?
You can. It's available on it also.
I can't believe the amount of elitist arrogance people are showing here. Super Meat Boy is actually a good game, but people are going to have the complete gall of "Oh we don't care about it" just because it's not coming onto the system. I mean god damn.... Even saying this doesn't stop the blatant people on this site from turning it into a ******* flame war on consoles: ""We would have loved to do a ps3 version, but its not at all possible what so ever now. so please stop asking about it.”"
I think that people truly don't care. So what if it isn't coming to our system. Why should we make a big fuss? We never denied it was a good game but we really don't care that much. I think we have more then enough games on our plate to care if SMB comes to the PS3 or not. Less money to spend in my opinion.
Or, get this now, It's just really not that big of a deal. If it was to come to the PS3, cool. Looks fun. Since it's not though, I doubt many people are going to lose sleep over it. There are other means to play the game other than a PS3, so it's really no big.
Thing is what I'm getting at is the comments of people going "Oh we have better games to play" and such, as if they're trying an anti-smack against what was said. I know it's not a big deal to some people, and that's fine. It's the ones that try to act snarky as if this was some potshot against the PS3.
My PC is too old, but it can run this game.... AMD Athlon 64 X2 2.6Ghz 5000+ PC 8500 DDR2 4GB GPU BFG 9800 GT 1GB PSU 500w After watching the trailer. I wasn't impressed... Does PSN and its users need this game desperately? no Is the PS3 doomed because of this game? no Is the PS3 still gets hate from the western media and closed minded gamers(fanboys) because of its success? yes
I'm surprised by some of the comments in here. I would have thought that this game not coming to the PS3 EVER, would be no big deal and just fly over PS3 fan(boy)s heads. And yet here they are listing games and acting all defencive while claiming they don't give a f***. For once they can't blame the developer because it was ALL papa Sony's fault, hilarious :D
It's a shit game anyways lol, ps3 owners aren't missing out on anything.
