Oddworld 4 PSN-only due to XBLA filesize limits

Stranger's Wrath won't see 360 release without a 'miracle', claims JAW

Just Add Water, the UK developer currently working on the re-release of the Oddworld series, has revealed that the new version of original Xbox title Stranger's Wrath is PS3-only due to Microsoft restrictions.

One of the impediments to the planned Xbox Live Arcade version is its filesize, JAW claimed in a blog post.

"One thing we can discuss in regard to the 360 version is the size of the game. On XBLA there is a 2GigaByte 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.

"The final decision is not ours... We are not PS3 exclusive."

Stranger's Wrath is due on PSN and PC next Spring.
