Team Meat looking to Sony platforms for Binding of Isaac

Joystiq writes: "It was revealed earlier today that Nintendo has refused to allow The Binding of Isaac on the 3DS eShop. Team Meat's Edward McMillen tells Joystiq it's "a bit primitive to 'censor' something due to religion, but it's [Nintendo's] platform and their choice on what they want to support." He also noted on Twitter that the decision hasn't soured the team's relationship with Nintendo, and that it "won't effect any future games with them." (PS Vita, PS3, Sony, Team Meat, The Binding of Isaac)

If I was Sony I wouldn't like being the second choice.

Bare in mind, things like Castle Crashers, Braid and Limbo were "second choice" for PS3. Sony don't have a problem with being "second choice" when it brings games to the platform.

That's what's good about them! They don't care about being first, as long as they have good hardware and software. Sony make some stupid moves at times, but they're my favorite out of the three evils lol. XD

Anyway, this is good news, I'd love to play some Binding of Isaac on my Vita or something.

Sony was also second choice to LittleBigPlanet if i remember correctly.

Fourth choice for a "Media Molecule" publisher...

They brought concepts to Microsoft, Nintendo and Valve (the concept they brought to Valve was along side the Portal team with a game that used portals if I recall)... but it was because Alex Evans knew someone from Sony they got a chance meeting and 6 months funding, which then had to be extended due to the product not meeting expectations, before Sony green lit it...

And you know the rest of the story and they're one of Sony's best European studios due to a fantastic concept.

That would be it, memory was a bit hazy.
Have a bubble.

3rd choice actually, the game is already on Steam

Seems like it would make a great PSN PS3/Vita title. Best of luck to them.

Double price than the PC version that was released last year? YUCK

I will buy this game for 5$ in a instant to play on my PS3 or Vita.

I already have it on PC, but sometimes I want to play it while I'm on the toilet ya' know?
ElliePage  +   1315d ago
Doesn't matter. I'd never buy any of the games made by these devs...EVER.

Is there a reason why?
You know, other than discrimination.

-On point-

I just hope the media backlash isn't severe.

well the game certainly is offensive in its theme, so its not that surprising for someone to think like this

Isn't this the same dev that cried to the media over ms not advertising there game the way they thought they should and I believe they still sold 200 thousand plus copies on arcade. I say let the cry babies go where they fit in the best.
maniacmayhem  +   1315d ago
Wow, Team Meat just not having a lot of luck with the platforms.

Funny the decision didn't sour them and the big N but they sure did make a fuss about MS.
PirateThom  +   1315d ago
Especially since they couldn't release SMB on WiiWare due to filesize... so that's two attempts on Nintendo platforms with no success and they seem OK with it...

But an advertising issue with one game on XBox and Microsoft are the devil...

They should have known that Nintendo is about censorship and wouldn't allow Isaac to be released on their service
