Stranger’s Wrath is coming to PSN only for now, says JAW

Just Add Water has said over on its official blog that for now, its Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath remake is a PS3-exclusive.

According to the blog post, there’s a number of reasons why the game hasn’t been announced for Xbox Live just yet.

“Now with regard to Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath on the 360 there are a number of factors that are currently sitting in our way to announce a 360 version of the title, whilst we can’t go into all the details, what I can say is we are working with Microsoft to get the title on that platform, however the final decision is NOT ours,” read the post.

“One thing we can discuss in regard to the 360 version is the size of the game. On XBLA there is a 2GB size limit we have to adhere to, currently the title weighs in at 2.1GB and that is without any updates, so either we have to pull a miracle out of the bag with some type of amazing compression system, or ask Microsoft to increase their 2GB limit, however this limit is apparently hardware led, so please let us try and make a miracle happen.”

Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath is currently slated for spring 2011, and is just one of many titles in the series planned for release from JAW.

    No, by these guys it’s only Strager’s Wrath HD. The Oddbox with all the Oddworld titles its probably by Lanning itself.

    Why limitations like these exist with stuff like this and patches on the 360 is because of the Arcade edition of the 360. Microsoft really shot themselves in the foot with all these limitations on their system.

    @5 I don’t think they can really use that as an excuse. Probably they just thought everybody was gonna fall in line and use that as a standard, when clearly some developers aren’t going to have that option, as in this case.

    They should’ve seen it coming. And they should seriously consider upgrading that system if they’re betting on another 3 years plus.
