    My thoughts exactly. I'm sure it will happen eventually, why turn down the extra revenue?

    reminds me of the early, fantastic platform games i played on the Mac Plus as a kid, such as 'Dark Castle'. i would've thought serious gamers (PC users) would be more into this sort of thing than pimply console noobs.

    One 'always' too much there?

    Hoping for a Steam release as well, I love this kind of games that are a bit surreal.

    This is my personal game of the year, even Mass Effect 2 can't touch this masteripiece. Yeah sure its short, expensive but is so intesive and so great, that can be hardly described by words, you have to experienced by yourself...

    I wouldn't pay £10, but half that would have me interested (on PC).

    If I had an Xbox I'd fire it up and buy this game. Sounds like a wonderful experience to play alone in the dark on surround sound to me.

    I want the game to be on Steam so I could play it with my PS3 controller (emulating the 360 controller) and laugh at Microsoft :D

    It works in Braid ;)

    Sorry guys, but don't expect to see Limbo on the PS3 or PC. Ever.
    It's part of 2010's Summer of Arcade, an annual Microsoft event where they release 5 games over the course of 5 weeks. All games are Xbox exclusives and stay that way (aside from 2009's Marvel vs. Capcom 2 which was a remake).


    Not any more, there is still hope!

    Because Microsoft gives them a ton of money not to. The developers also usually get a 'sweetheart' deal for their next game if they allow Microsoft to publish it.

    As with all Microsoft projects, if there's one thing they're good at, it's throwing money at things.

    Had a play on the demo last night and actually enjoyed it more than I expected (for the record I hate Braid soooo much). Probably not going to buy it for the current price though as it looks to me like I may get stuck somewhere along the way, get really frustrated with it, throw the controller at the floor and never play it again. Also I had to turn eco-mode off on my TV as it was so dark I couldn't see any of the traps even with brightness in game on the highest setting.

    Will keep an eye on it and see if it ends up on any sales.

    This looks graphically stunning. So simple yet effective.

    I don't think so.
    Braid and Bionic Commando Rearmed are Summer of Arcade Games from 2008.
    Both are now also available for PC.
    So there is still some hope for a PC release. ;)

    Oh wow, never realised they changed their policy. Nice spot. :thumb:

    Now I wonder if devs still blow their publishing deal if they release their games on another platform...
