"Patching Things Up" With Microsoft
Last week marked a full year since the astounding (and astoundingly difficult) Super Meat Boy hit Xbox Live Arcade, and Team Meat are planning all manner of festivities to celebrate their boy's first birthday. According to the official blog, they're in talks with Microsoft to arrange a major discount for the XBLA version next month as well as a massive new level pack. As if wasn't good enough value already!
Despite loudly complaining about Microsoft's treatment to anyone who'll listen (and being taken to task by other Indie devs), Team Meat plan to patch things up and put the past behind them to "do what is best for SMB and the fans." We're glad to hear it, because whilst Microsoft's indie policies have plenty of room for improvement, Team Meat has definitely come out of the collaboration with major profits and one hell of a game.
