Super Meat Boy Kicks Off With A Sale on XBLA

As a thank you to all the fans, Team Meat has decided to put Super Meat Boy on sale from the release date until November–a move never before taken on XBL. Good news for all you folks wary of high DLC prices, right?

“So, recently we have been talking to MS about eventual sales and the future of Super Meat Boy, we wanted to be able to do something special for Xmas,” says Edmund, SMB creator, on the Meat Blog, “but it felt like a sale only 2 months after launch would be a kinda shitty thing to do to the fans who just bought it.”

So, what’s the sale price? 800 MS points: that’d be 10 dollars.

Now you have two reasons to pick this game up right away: it’s insanely good, and you’ll save money doing it, too. Win-win! Just know that should you partake in this meaty sale, this will be your unavoidable fate:

    Actually, this is a clever trick. I will tell you why this is a clever trick.

    You see, Microsoft have a promotion, where if you buy 2400 points of game (not indie games, not Rock Band DLC, but *game*), you get 800 free Microsoft Banana dollars. Now, a lot of people probably figured, “I’ll buy Sonic 4/Costume Quest and Super Meat Boy, hit an even 2400, and get 800 free bananas that are worth pennies each!”

    Except now Super Meat Boy is on sale. So that gives you only 2000 points. For 400 points, you can buy…Geometry Wars which you already have, or some shitty DLC you don’t need, or a big, full priced game, to get to 2400.

    Which means you’ll buy a full priced game, or not get your free points. It’s a very clever ruse on their part.
