Jurassic Park: The Game Arriving on a Disc for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3

The reason Telltale Games recently signed a deal with Microsoft becomes clear.

I've written about as many stories regarding Telltale Games this week as PlayStation Network, it feels. 

First, the company revealed Jurassic Park: The Game was being pushed back until this fall, citing the need for additional polish. Then, it released a cyptic press release about obtaining a publishing licensor agreement for Xbox 360--something Telltale would need to publish at retail. Today, we know why.

Jurassic Park: The Game will be arriving on a disc for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year. The whole season will be packed on the disc, which raises a few questions about Telltale's plans. Does this rule out a downloadable, episodic release through Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network? Presumably, the PC and Mac crowd will still have the opportunity to buy and play episode-to-episode.

I've asked Telltale to better clarify what's up with their console plans, and I'll update if I hear anything.     

 One can only hope Telltale will take the time to add a pile of dino droppings.
