Stranger's Wrath HD studio has 'given up' on Microsoft

Probably because it came to ps3 first - I read that Microsoft don't like that. Unless it's a better version alal Joe Danger Special edition.

All it's pissing off is people who only have a 360 and want to buy it.

For God's sake Microsoft, you guys are borderline r-tards when you want to be.

Microsoft have some pretty anti competitive rules if you want to release a game on their system :(

Its a sad way to treat a former exclusive on their system.

That is some utterly backwards thinking from MS. It's a former exclusive and one that most people complain about never getting a backwards compatibility patch.

Its also got a cult following and despite poor sales did really well critically. If they'd released it on XBLA at the same time as PSN i would of gottne the xbox version. As it wasn't i got it on PSN and now have absolutely no reason to buy it now even if it does end up on the 360.

Microsoft cited unmet retail sales criteria, followed by unsatisfactory Metacritic scores as preventing this

It doesn't have poor metacritic ratings, 88 for the old non-HD origional Xbox release and 82 for the HD version on the PS3.

It's a great game too, I've only recently got it on my PS3 and it's a lot better than I expected.

I actually don't know how the HD version hasn't got a higher rating than the original. It's heads and shoulders above the original game. The update next week will be really cool as well. Direct uploading to Youtube? Yes please!

Just Add Water showed EXACTLY how developers should do a HD remake.....cough cough....Silent Hill....cough cough....MGS.....cough cough....Devil May cry.....*keeps coughing*
