Confirmed: Limbo PS3, PC has extra “secret” additional content

Wednesday, 20th July 2011 18:00 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Both the PS3 and PC versions of Limbo has extra additional “secret” content over its 360 brethren at release, VG247 can confirm.

When both SKUs were announced earlier this month, Playdead mentioned that they would have a “little extra secret.”

In an interview with us last week, studio CEO Dino Patti seemed to hint that there would be additional content for the game for the Triple and Steam versions, saying it would be “something which you will find out” at release.

Patti has since confirmed to VG247 this evening in an email that there is additional content in the game, but it’s hidden as a “secret.” When asked if it was coming to the 360 version, he said that there was “noting planned.”

Limbo is out now on PS3 in the US and Europe. It’ll launch on Steam worldwide on August 2.

    Perhaps, an actual ending?

    It’s an extra hidden level. Find it and get the gold “Secret Trophy” named “Running off will get you nowhere”

    Developers need to seriously rethink this strategy. Yes, it’s helpful for marketing, but those of us who essentially helped fund the new versions are getting short changed.

    They could make it free DLC for the 360 version. It would help keep people playing it and everything. :)

    MS doesn’t do free DLC thats why Valve has changed lanes with them because MS wants 30% of DLC sales and well 30% of nothing is still nothing.

    This is actually a forced upon the developers as part of Sony’s strategy. If a developer wants to release a game on the PS3 that has seen an earlier release on a competing platform, they demand that something substantial be added to make it a better value, or Sony will refuse the game. Usually developers choose to strip content from the 360 version to make this process easier on them. The most famous example being a whole character that was removed from Tales of Vesperia so it could be added in the PS3 version. Developers are not allowed to release this content as DLC on the other platform in general, but I am sure sweetheart deals are made with other developers.

    @5 It’s happened in the past. It’s happening with Portal 2 in fact, at least with regards to the first lot of DLC.

    @6 That doesn’t surprise me, and makes it even more annoying.

    Oh, and @7, it isn’t. It’s a short game, but it’s worth every single penny in terms of quality.

    Not sure of that yet. Look at the Left 4 Dead 2 DLC no mention of it going to the 360 it just says Steam.

    Updated. No plans for the content to go to 360.

    This is part of why I’m happy to wait for PS3 versions of XBLA titles. If they didn’t include anything extra, the PS3 fanbase would be justifiably angry at having to wait a year for a game. But when there’s things like this, it eases the wait a little.
