Backwards Compatibility for Psychonauts or Death!
Okay, it’s probably not something Patrick Henry really would’ve said. Nevertheless, the call has gone forth! The fine folks at Double Fine have offered to spend the few hours it would take to make their hit game, Psychonauts, backwards compatible. Well, Microsoft will have nothing to do with that, apparently.
To this end, I called up the good people at Microsoft and said, “Hello friends. How is the emulator coming along? Will it ever run the Excellent game Psychonauts?”
“Believe us, we have top men working on it now,” they said.
“You know, if it would help, we’d be willing to fly all our engineers up to Seattle, and they’d do all the programming! Or, they could just tell you exactly how our engine works, and we could probably get it running on the 360 in just a few hours!”
“TOP… MEN.” Is all they said.
What’s the matter, Microsoft? Too busy releasing awesome emulators like BIG MUTHA TRUCKERS and MINORITY REPORT to bother with piddly crap like Psychonauts?
Anyway, Tim Schafer at Double Fine has asked anyone that slightly cares to email Microsoft at email@example.com and let them know what you really want to see on the next backwards compat update.
If anyone sends email requesting Fight Club, I will destroy you!
