Team Meat has negotiated with Microsoft to offer a limited time launch discount as a gift for all of its fan support!
Team Meat was planning on doing something special with Super Meat Boy in time for Christmas this year, but decided that a sale 2 months after release wouldn't be cool to all the fans that bought it before that. So Team Meat talked it over with Microsoft (who by the way loved the idea) to have Super Meat Boy launch at 800 points instead of 1200 points. I have no idea what this game even is, but I think this is a sweet deal none the less.
Here is what they said in the blog:
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, 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.
After much brainstorming Tommy and I pitched the idea of possibly launching with a sale, a way to reward the fans for buying the game at launch. Now this to my knowledge isn't something that MS has ever done, but much like "teh Internets" we though we might as well approach the idea of a sale with the same innovative mind set. MS loved the idea and we finalized it last Friday.
So its official.
Super Meat Boy will launch on xbla ON SALE for 800 ms points! (that's $10 bucks!) the sales for a limited time only and will go back up to our normal price of 1200 ms points in Nov.
We hope you guys appreciate this early xmas gift, you're positive comments, fan art and donations when Edmund was in the hospital have been greatly appreciated, we are more than happy to give a little back.
Super Meat Boy Oct.20th Xbla
