Super Meat Boy Is On Sale Immediately
Super Meat Boy will be hitting the Xbox Live Marketplace in about 8 hours. Like most new XBLA titles, it’s slated to run at 1200 Microsoft Points. Let’s hand this off to the Team Meat’s Super Meat Boy blog:
So, recently we have been talking to MS about eventual sales and the future of Super Meat Boy, we wanted to be able to do something special for Xmas, but it felt like a sale only 2 months after launch would be a kinda shitty thing to do to the fans who just bought it.
After much brainstorming Tommy and I pitched the idea of possibly launching with a sale, a way to reward the fans for buying the game at launch. Now this to my knowledge isn’t something that MS has ever done, but much like “teh Internets” we though we might as well approach the idea of a sale with the same innovative mind set. MS loved the idea and we finalized it last Friday.
That’s right, Super meat Boy, when it finally shows up on Xbox Live, will cost only 800 points, which will cause me, being someone who works from home and who is only vaguely aware of what day it is, wonder if it’s still 2008. Which might not be a good thing, because I drank a lot in 2008. Thanks, guys.
