    Wow, that's awesome. I didn't even KNOW there were other Oddword games besides Oddysee and Exoddus.

    Heard this a while back on one of the oddworld fansites, it made me smile, but I thought nothing of it. As we all know (well oddworld fans) Oddworld Inhabitants don't have the best record for being reliable. :p

    I'm seriously looking forward to this though, when I see it for purchase on the steam store, I will begin to hyperventilate.

    These are the only reasons I ever bought an xbox.

    Let's hope they more than just port them, improved graphics, high res with AA? *convulsions*

    They're also in 2D too using sprites with a low fixed resolution which leaves no scope for improved graphics without remaking the whole game using higher res sprites and images/backgrounds etc.

    Munch's Oddysee and Stranger's Wrath are both 3D using an engine that deals with polygons not sprites.

    On the PS2 emulator, the graphics look so much better than when played through the same screen but on my PS2 because I can run my PS2 games at a higher res with AA/AF.

    I recently got involved with playing some abandon ware games from the commodore era, and seeing this, makes me glad that companies are recognizing that old titles can still generate revenue, and that a bundled pack improves the value, somewhat, for the customer. I would like to revisit the days of Abe's superior colon prowess.
