Strangers Wrath HD went onto Xbox live?

Another prime example of a journalist not doing their homework. Strangers Wrath HD is only on PSN...
Blastoise  +   1417d ago
I heard it didnt because microsoft refused to have what PSN had first
blumatt  +   1417d ago
Yep. That sucks too because the Oddworld series are great games. MS are too thick-headed to allow 360 gamers the right to play it. Of course, the Oddworld series has always been a game that people associate with PlayStation, but I feel that 360 folk should be able to play it too. Maybe MS will realize what they've done soon and allow it on XBL.

yeah, that's right. MS insists that LIVE games are either better or cheaper or are times exclusives. the devs wouldn't go with that because of the way MS screwed them in the past
MasterCornholio  +   1417d ago
So that is why Amy is cheaper on XBOXlive. Talk about unfair business practices. If people support Microsoft for doing this they don't deserve anything because in the end this kills the competition.

It's not true in this case. Strangers Wrath is too big to fit on the xbla which has a 2gb limit. A stupid rule.
Dark_Overlord  +   1417d ago

They managed to get the game under the 2GB limit, but MS are still being c***s with regards to the game.

The original has been on xbox live for a long time. Do YOUR homework chiefs. Go drink or something its Friday night.

ASTAROTH  +   1417d ago
more butt hurt! Hey it was an xbox game, and a good one. Give some credit!
Slade  +   1417d ago
why should I?

A new game hasnt been made this entire gen basically

its a shameless moneygrab for a lazy dev
ScubaSteve1  +   1417d ago
will this game be on disc for ps3 or downloaded via psn
ginsunuva  +   1417d ago
It'l be like 4gb definitely not on disc. Stranger's Wrath was psn only too.

Nice! This game was fun back in the day. Putting in HD for the PS3 = day one buy.
jessupj  +   1417d ago
Awesome, I am a huge fan of the first 2 games, but I never got to play Munch's Oddyssey because it sadly went to xbox exclusively.

I'm very much looking forward to this.
Relientk77  +   1417d ago
Sweet now I have access to all 4 Oddworld games. Yay
MasterCornholio  +   1417d ago
Never played this one and I love the oddworld games so I am planning to pick all of them up for my Vita.

Holy greatness! Never had the change to play the game as it was released exclusively for the original Xbox. I'm a big, big fan of Oddworld games. They're not only great games with a great setting and a witty storyline but they have what modern games lack today: the heart! I'm telling you these games have souls, they will make you smile, fill your heart with sweetness and leave you a happy man after you beat them.

One of my all time favorites for sure. You're the man Oddworld Inhabitants, thank you for colouring my somewhat boring childhood vivid with your gorgeous imagination and creativity. :)

It's like my FAVORITE or maybe second favorite childhood game!

So unique, such humor and memorable, challenging levels. Such odd people.
PCE  +   1416d ago
Awesome. Oddworld is fucking boss.

Brilliant. This is my favorite adventure franchise.
