Team Meat, creators of the balls-hard platformer Super Meat Boy have reached an agreement with Microsoft and were able to get its price on the XBLA reduced, something they wanted for a while. Microsoft had refused firmly to cut the price of Super Meat Boy or give it any promotion after it was released. Despite this it sold very well at 600,000 copies, a third of which were XBLA, and got excellent reviews from nearly everyone.
In the previous month, Edmund McMillen, Co-CEO of Team Meat and designer of Meat Boy said that he would never work with Microsoft again after all the hassle he had to put up with them, but the head-butting has since been sorted out and all is right with the world. On a blog post, McMillen said that he doesn’t have a concrete date, but Super Meat Boy will be on sale on XBLA next month along with an update that adds a large quantity of new levels to the mode Teh Internets, exclusive to the XBLA if I’m not mistaken. If you don’t have this game and you’re looking for a challenge, get it soon.
