Joe Danger the once PSN exclusive has gone multiplatform and is available on the Xbox 360 now. It also has a lot of additional content and the developer, jokingly called the PSN users “playtesters”. Are people upset by this? You bet.
The developer, Sean Murray revealed a lot of info to Eurogamer and said he understands why PS3 fans are upset.
“It’s been so nice to come back to, now we’ve watched hundreds of thousands of people play through on PS3. They’ve been our playtesters for the changes we’ve made to Special Edition.”
“It’s always weird when what you perceive is an exclusive title goes to another platform.
“It’s part of the culture. I used to be a Sony fanboy myself – not cut me in half and I bleed Sony or anything like that, but just, I quite like the XMB, and telling people, I quite like Blu-rays. That was me.
“But I remember being a kid and f***ing hell, trying talking to me as a kid about anything Sega was doing – no Nintendo! I was probably like that until I was sixteen. And then I played some Sega games and I was like, oh, Crazy Taxi’s quite good, isn’t it? Through gritted teeth.”
“So I do understand. Grant, our artist, he’s got this pad from when he was a kid, because he was a Sega fanboy, and he’s got drawings he sent into magazines and they were like, this is Sonic feeding Mario into a meat grinder. He used to send them in, and they were totally grotesque. They’d never print them. He didn’t know why at the time. This is Mario getting split in half by Sonic with a chainsaw.”
