Super Meat Boy 2 announced, "never on PS3"

Team Meat have announced via tweet that they’re working on Super Meat Boy 2, and that the first game has sold over a million copies. (PC, Super Meat Boy 2, Wii, Xbox 360)

Update BEEFJACK: This story originally erroneously claimed that Team Meat's new game was to be Super Meat Boy 2. However, no information about the new title has been confirmed; we misinterpreted the text on the Twitter account. BeefJack apologises wholeheartedly to Team Meat for any inaccuracies, and to our readers for any confusion.

Brilliant news...
... SMB is one of my favourite games ever.

I'm wondering what kinda stuff they'll add. I just hope that the console-version will come with a level-editor though, cause the PC version has one.

Super meat boy is an overated game. The levels are too simplified in design and too small.
ReservoirDog316  +   1424d ago
@ Skip

Seriously? Simplified? Small?

Some of those simplified and small levels can take you hours of trying while your fingers bleed because they're so well designed and asks for perfection out of you.

THIS*** thing is one of the most well designed and downright devilish levels ever made!

And that's an accurate view on how frustrating it is. And not cause the level sucks. It's cause you personally suck and aren't worthy of finishing that level.


Too bad it's not Super Meat Boy 2.

SMB is pure gameplay bliss. Perfect controls, great humor, and a tough but fair challenge.

Add to that LOTSSSSSSSSSsssssssssss of levels, and free DLC!

Oh, at first I didn't realise SMB stood for Super Meat Boy. I thought you were talking about Super Mario Bros. Lol.

Didn't these guys bash Microsoft a wile back and said they wouldn't make the 2nd SMB ? ... so how come they are making it for X360 and Windows?

As for SMB 2, it's great news. SMB is a very good game.

At least they bothered to correct their mistake, but still....just goes to show you the quality of game journalism these days.

The title should probably be changed, too. Because, uh....this isn't an announcement of SMB2, nor did they state that the NEW GAME will not be on ps3 (just not SMB).

See the tweet for yourself:

If jumping the gun were a sport, you'd get the gold, Beefjack.

First of all, beefjack is an amateur site so what do you expect? I take my news from amateur site with a lot of salt.

That said, this article already did it's job as it generated plenty of traffic for their site.

Everyone should just help out, hit that plus sign next to the domain mark it as poor quality site. Done!
irepbtown  +   1424d ago
'Working on game 2' is not the problem, it is when he/she carries on to say 'Also SMB will never be on PS3 sorry :('

This then makes one wonder if the first part of the tweet is aimed at SMB. Even though this person clearly wrote 'ALSO', there is still that slight confusion hence this was written.

also like to note this game has more content and a built in level maker.

They once said they wanted to put Super Meat Boy on the PS3 but Sony didnt want it. This new games and Super Meat Boy might be on the Wii U since they wanted SMB on WiiWare but the game size was to big.
Sounds like your mad SMB isn't on PS3. Do you hate every game not on PS3?

WTF 2 out of 3 consoles get a 'exclusive', an exclusive is one ONE consols OR 2 from THE SAME COMPANY!
kaveti6616  +   1424d ago
An exclusive is something that "excludes" someone or something else.

"This club is exclusive." Many people might be allowed at the club, but some people aren't.

Thus, if Super Meat Boy is "exclusive" to PC and Xbox 360, somebody is being excluded. That somebody is the PS3 and the Wii.
darkpower  +   1424d ago
Do you think it's a bit suspicious, though, that they have said that they have a "permanent" (in what way) with BOTH MS and Nintendo? How does THAT work in such a way in which neither MS nor Nintendo mind that the other is able to have it on the system, when they didn't say this earlier about why it wouldn't be on the PS3?

Sounds like to me they are still trying to deny PS3 gamers the right to play this game and are trying to make up whatever asinine excuse they can to keep the press (who seem to NEVER push game companies to answer their questions truthfully because they are scared of being blacklisted) off of their asses about the issue. I feel like they changed their story (if there WAS something exclusive going on, why not just say that at the start instead of trying to mislead and flamebait a group of gamers?).

Unfortunately, their cowardness (yes, Team Meat are cowards for doing this to the gamers) has been rewarded ten fold by people who bought their game knowing that they did this to a group of gamers (perhaps even BECAUSE of it for some fanboyish reasons). It's because of this that they might think that they will be rewarded in the future if the PS3 is not included in the systems of choice for their newer games. I know it's a great game and all, but I have refused to buy the game for the reasons stated above, and I've stuck to that. Unless Team Meat can prove to me that they are not absolute douchebags to the PS3 gamers and actually be truthful, then they won't ever see my money for ANY game they put out. It's kind of sad to see gamers these days reward shit like this with their dollars. They've rewarded people like EA and Activision for the crap they pull like the Online Passes and shit. Why not reward Team Meat for excluding a certain demographic from being able to play this game? Makes them just as bad as the people that pull shit like this!

Basically put, kaveti, jay thinks their "exclusivity" excuse is absolute bullshit, and I agree with him!

kaveti6616  +   1424d ago
That title is wrong. Team Meat didn't say anything about making a Super Meat Boy 2 and they never said "never coming to PS3." Whoever posted the article hasn't changed the title to reflect that fact.

I was merely clarifying the definition of "exclusive."
darkpower  +   1424d ago
They fixed this, but they have said something about the Twitter thing (which is still in the article despite what you have said), so there is still THAT question lingering.

It still seems to me that they are being stupid about this decision and are not being truthful. I had a chance to interview them last year around this time, but I didn't have the headset to be able to conduct the interview (which fucking annoyed me because I wanted to do that interview SO BAD) about this PS3 issue, when they made the "Sony doesn't want it" excuse. It sounds like they are doing what Valve did when THEY didn't want to develop on the PS3: changing they excuse when the last one gets destroyed by people who know better than to fall for the routine. When the MS/Nintendo exclusive thing gets destroyed like it should and probably will, what other excuse will they use for not putting it on PS3 then?

Simply put, they need to sit down with someone who will ask them hard questions and answer them with clarity and truthfulness. This should be true of any game company, and I don't know why some game companies choose to circle jerk their potential customers. Apparently, SMB seems to be popular, so why keep potential sales out of your ledger because you can't be bothered to try to make things work, and then keep changing the lies towards your consumers and those you're screwing over as to why you are screwing them over? Can't understand that attitude.

When it comes to gaming, 'exclusive' is a noun.

An item or story published or broadcast by only one source.

Therefore you are incorrect.

Gamers on the PS3 prob don't give a damn about this, I don't (I've never heard of it). Not when we have a plethora of games coming out this the past few years. PS 100% sure this will get disagrees, but it's the truth.

I totally hear ya but there's nothing wrong with having more quality that the others don't on top of the quality everybody has. its why Sonys model fits me better. Even though I don't like every exclusive they release the more released means I have more choice and a greater chance of playing more of the games I do like. almost a numbers game but luckily there's a lot of quality in there

Not exclusive, can get it on PC/Steam.

It doesn't matter about specs either. Anyone, yes ANYONE, can run this game on their PCs, not intensive at all.

But as I said when they announced this game wasn't coming to PS3, because "Sony didn't seem very interested" is one of the most immature, silliest reasons I could have heard and after hearing this news... Things haven't changed.

Too bad it will never be on PS3, but at the same time, it doesn't take much at all to run the game and pretty much anyone can run it on any PC.
Kennytaur  +   1424d ago
OK, it says that SMB won't come to PS3 due to "exclusivity"-rights . I hope the next game will, because it seemed weird to me at first as I thought that they didn't want to put it on PS3 due to the somewhat misleading title. I got it through the Humble Bundle and with a 360 controller it's awesome. (My reason for thinking it's odd putting it on 360 and not PS3 is that MS apparently has very strict rules and aren't as co-operative as Sony seems to be with Indie developers, and more platforms means more money)
