Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty could still come to Xbox One

"You know what? Oddworld wasn't built on selling out." That's what series creator Lorne Lanning had to say about Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty coming out on Xbox, prior to Microsoft's self-publishing 180. Now that Microsoft allows...

You ought to download Binary Domain on PS Plus this week photo
You ought to download Binary Domain on PS Plus this week
by Jordan Devore

Yes, we've covered this month's PlayStation Plus games for North America already. But I can't pass on having just one more opportunity to represent Binary Domain, which joins the PS Vita version of Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath in the Instant Game Collection tomorrow.

Not to hype up this goofy third-person shooter as the best thing ever or anything, but, yeah -- you need to download this if you're a Plus member. It's got robots who believe they are humans, which is pretty cool, and the actual enemies you're fighting are some of the most satisfying to take down in -- dare I say it? -- all of gaming. Worth your time, definitely.

As for discounts, there's only one planned for this week: Worms 2: Armageddon will be $4.50 for PS Plus subscribers, down from its regular price of $14.99.

Abe's Oddysee: New N' Tasty won't 'sell out' for Xbox One photo
Abe's Oddysee: New N' Tasty won't 'sell out' for Xbox One
by Jim Sterling

Abe's Oddysee: New N' Tasty is coming to the Wii U and PlayStation 4, but neither the Xbox 360 nor the Xbox One will get a lick of Abe's meat. Lorne Lanning's reasoning is simple -- Oddworld doesn't sell out, and an indie has to do just that to get Microsoft's blessing.

"For Xbox One they’ve granted us a license for New ‘n’ Tasty! but they still say you need a publisher," Lanning told Eurogamer. "We don’t have a publisher so we’re not officially on the platform, even though we’re compatible, even though we’ll be ready to do it. Period. 

"Why do we need a publisher when we self-finance our games, we build our own IP, we manage our own IP and we’ve turned nearly two million units online as indie publishers sold – not free downloads? Why? What’s wrong with us?"

Lanning's no fan of the kind of capitalism that dominates the game industry -- the exact brand of money-fueled cronyism the Xbox One is built on. Indie games requiring a publisher is ridiculous, he says, and adds this is coming from a guy who helped launch the original Xbox with an exclusive!
