No Stranger’s Wrath for XBLA? Blame size restrictions

I was under the impression we were over the file size restriction drama, but apparently we still have room for improvement. Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath is getting HD-ified for PlayStation Network next year, and although it’s not too late for an Xbox LIVE Arcade version too, there are some issues, currently.

Developer Just Add Water wrote about one such issue on its blog: “On XBLA there is a 2 GB size limit we have to adhere to, currently the title weighs in at 2.1 GB 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 2 GB limit.”

“However this limit is apparently hardware led, so please let us try and make a miracle happen.” Indeed. I would very much like to experience Stranger’s Wrath, and I say that as someone who still runs a 20 GB hard drive. There’s always room to be made.
