The Simpsons Arcade game comes to PS3
The Simpsons Arcade game being released for PSN on the seventh, free for all PS+ subscribers. No news on a 360 release, indicating it may be an exclusive.
Editor's Note: Just to throw in my two cents, we reported this as a rumor in November, and initially it looked like it would be coming to both platforms. Digging a little further, it looks like this was actually supposed to come out today, but because of Microsoft's policy, it was delayed until next week.Xbox 360 will see this on Friday, February 3rd. You were right about one thing Fulchrum, Microsoft does not play nice...
By now you're probably aware that Screwattack likes the Simpsons Arcade beat-em-up game, naming it the best cartoon game ever. You might also be aware the game has never been released for consoles (that iPhone thing doesn't count). So you may be interested to hear that, according to the latest update from Sony about their PS+ offerings, the game will be coming to the PSN next Tuesday.
Not only that, but the games visuals are being upgraded to HD, and will also include classic four player multiplayer, both for local and online multiplayer. The game will even be completely free day one for all PS+ subscribers - not just discounted, but completely free.
Sadly, however, there is some bad news to this if you read between the lines. Microsoft have yet to announce anything resembling a release on the XBLA, and due Microsofts policy of not accepting games if they have been exclusive to other consoles before coming to them, this indicates it may just be for the PS3. So once again, 360 owners will have to miss out.
Still, if any g1's want to try some good ol' beat-em-up action as Homer, Marge, Lisa or Bart, shoot me you’re PSN ID and we'll set up a game next week.
Got it on my Mame Arcade, beat that PS3 ;p
I love how there are always people online in this and x-men. its like the arcade but at home.
Just to be clear, I'm now aware that the game is coming to the 360. However, when I originally wrote this, Konami had not commented, so Sony were the only sources of information. I made an incorrect assumption based on the info I had, and I was wrong about that.
It is coming to the Xbox 360 it just got confirmed by Konami. I'm so happy I waited most of my life for this. This was one of my personal favorite arcade games I ever played. I am a lot a fan of the show so oh course I'm getting it.
I shall probably get this very soon. Looks sweet!
The achievement list has been leaked for several weeks now, it's a timed exclusive at worst. Comb your beards.
The achievement set list has already been leaked, it's coming. Timed exclusive at worst.
PS + win again. i am really starting to like + every month that i have it
Microsoft is so petty. This is why its either dead or in last place in every other country.
What the hell,Microsoft??? I mean, I don't have a 360,but that's still bullshit.
I sure hope this comes to the xbox soon
Good. Glad to have something accurate.
for that reason alone I wish it was just reduced to like 99 cents so I could own it, I hate that BS of having to have the service to keep those "free" games what a joke, but this game will be the shiznit.
...so just keep subscribing.
No it wasn't, it was rumoured a while ago. Konami never said anything official
My PSN is Murtagh426
This always was my favorite arcade game. I can't wait to play it again.
"Available February 3rd for Xbox Live Arcade and February 7th for PlayStation" as seen on Konami's Facebook page!!!
Oh well i didn't know that but hey cool that you got to it first
