Hey, Guess What? Super Meat Boy Is $10 Until November

Over 300 levels! Do the math!

We’re a mere twelve hours out from the release of Super Meat Boy-- Team Meat’s long-in-development, ridiculous platformer/controller-breaking simulator—and it seems like things couldn’t be going better for the indie team; reviews of the game have been ecstatic, and Brad likes the game so much transported him to some sort of "Platformer Hell" (which is like Bullet Hell, but worse) from which the only escape is an endless series of perfectly timed wall jumps
 
Yep, it sure looks like Super Meat Boy has tapped into the little masochist inside all of us, and with success. Is there anything else that Team Meat can do to try and convince you to cover levels with meat guts?

How about making the game cheaper before the game comes out?

Team Meat has revealed that Super Meat Boy—originally set to retail on XBLA at $15--has been reduced in price for a limited time only. If you buy Super Meat Boy before November 1, the game will be yours for the low, low price of $10.
 
  

  

== TEASER ==After November 1, however, Super Meat Boy returns to its initially announced $15/1200 Point price, so if you own a 360 and have even the slightest interest in jumping from wall to wall, fighting evil fetuses in robot suits with monocles, or you just Wanna Be The Guy, you would be foolish not to buy the game before its price goes back up.

You won’t lose out on anything buying the game as this reduced price either. All players who purchase Super Meat Boy will still have access to Team Meat’s run of free DLC levels.  As the devs say on their website, Team Meat had initially planned on reducing the price to $10 as a Christmas sale, but because SMB’s (Oh man! I just got that!) release fell so close to December, they decided to bring the Christmas sale early. Consider this sale your early Christmas present.
 
A Christmas present of Meat.
 
While you’re waiting for Santa to come down the digital tube with the aforementioned sack of meat, enjoy even more footage of Brad cursing at Super Meat Boy, which is perfect for Christmas since Brad cursing is a gift that keeps on giving.

Good, I might get it.

Ok at 15 bucks this was a really good buy and at 10 it is a must buy, that is awesome. Also watching brad play the game filled with love and hate for it at the same time.... pretty funny.

Brad is the pretty one.
 
Super Meat Boy is a reminder that not all games are designed to reward accomplishment; some are designed to punish failure.

Awesome. Between this and the devs figuring out a way to offer free DLC, you've got to love them.

"I'll buy it at a high price!"
 
Well...now I'll buy it at a lower price too.

I'm still waiting for the PC release, though I have a tense relationship with this game. One the one hand, I'm vegan, so I didn't find those "Hitler was a vegetarian, don't be like Hitler" ads too funny. Besides, the constant delays for the PC version seemed like they were trolling us PC users... On the other hand, this game fucking rocks.

thats 30 levels a buck dawg

Too bad spending 800 points here doesn't apply to the other promotion!! MS did that on purpose so the people who really wanted this game don't get the free 800 pts from the other promotion, at least it's 5 bucks off though....Still this is a MUST HAVE!

watching brad play super meat boy is by far the most amusing thing i have ever seen on this site, i call for and ENDURANCE RUN on Super Mean Boy by BRAD, i realize that a full endurance run cant really be made purely on brad dieing again and again and again, but it would be awesome to follow him along as he attempts to beat this game. i bet EVERYBODY in the GiantBomb community would appreciate such a thing ;)

Brads face kept getting more and more red.
Priceless.

I told myself I wasn't gonna buy it, then they went and slashed 5 bucks off the top and I couldn't help myself.

Nice.  I'm mildly curious about why they chose to lower the price, but mostly just happy about saving $5.

The PC version is coming with a map editor and a new character. That's probably why it was delayed.

On one hand, this is awesome.  On the other, I now have 400 extra MSP to spend to get 800 back for the October promo.  MICROSOFT!!!!!!

They really need to make this game into a psn game too. That would make my year complete!!!
