Heads up. This is on Xbox indie games

It's available for 400 points. Just a little heads up in case you wanted it but your pc is too bad or you want it for cheaper. As far as I could tell from the trial version it's the same as the PC version

Yea, its cheaper on live but the guy who made it says the pc version is better as it supports more ships on screen and i think the graphics are crisper if that matters to yea. Also updates will come out for the pc version way faster considering the slow ass speed Microsoft handles things. Neat little time waster for 10 bucks.

Really? That's kinda cool. Half price for a slightly worse version of the game? Sure? Sadly, I'm saving my microsoft space bucks for Trenched right now, because otherwise I'd probably capitalize on this venture.

Shit, really? I was going to get the Xbox 360 indie games version instead of Steam, but looks like I'll have to change my mind. Still, 400points/five bucks, though...

Here's a post from the developer highlighting the differences between the 360 & PC versions: http://murudai.com/2011/06/solar-2-now-on-xbox-live-indie-games/

That's a rather long list of bad things...think I'll stay away from the 360 version.

@Vegsen: Holy crap! Lower audio quality? At least half of what keeps me playing around with this game for more than an hour at a time is the sweet soundtrack, and the fact that it sounds great on my headphones. I've got my 360 hooked up to a great surround sound system, so audio compression artifacts will show up even worse than PC speakers. Ugh!

@Vegsen: Well at least he's honest. :D
