Rockstar Brings Bully to Xbox 360 and Wii
What? Like you didn’t see this coming. Following the news that they were porting their other “exclusives” (Table Tennis) to various consoles, Rockstar brings news of an updated version of Bully to the current generation. The updated title will be called “Bully: Scholarship Edition” and will feature as-yet-named exclusive features. (ie. Expect to move the Wii controller back and forth in some fashion) While this is great news for those of us who never played the PS2 original, it brings other questions to the validity of Rockstar “exclusives”. How much longer till Manhunt 2 gets the same treatment?
