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.

#4 Posted by Hot_Karl (3309 posts) -

Wow, I leave for one second. Also, yeah, very cool. Nice to see this game is on sale. 
 
What's with everything being 1200 points these days, however? What the hell? I was just barely getting used to everything being 800/$10.

#5 Posted by Evilsbane (4694 posts) -

Sweet! I have 800 points on backup but I was bummed to learn that this was 1200 points. Great news for me now!

#17 Posted by skywing (1153 posts) -

PC FTW! 
Shame I'll have to wait nearly a month for it.  And pay more for it. And receive less content for it. 
 
:(

#18 Posted by DiscoDuck8k (499 posts) -

Definitely getting this for that price.

#19 Posted by ApolloBob (570 posts) -

Only 10 dollars for Super Fuck Fuck?  Fantastic!

#20 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11993 posts) -

Well, now I have to buy it.

#21 Posted by DUFFMCWALIN (51 posts) -

#23 Posted by JJOR64 (19046 posts) -

Buy this game so you can support these sexy dudes!
 

#24 Posted by WolfmanJenkins (182 posts) -

With the temporary price drop and free DLC coming soon, Super Meat Boy just got a new buyer.

#25 Edited by Brackynews (4094 posts) -

Not worth that degree of pain for any price, sorry.  I'll stick to 'Splosion Man and VVVVVV and Canabalt and Limbo.
...Oh fuck, just give it to me... at least the demo...

#26 Posted by Vinchenzo (6192 posts) -

Still not going to buy it, RB3 comes out next week and I don't really care to pay $10 for endless frustration. Maybe in the future...

#27 Posted by wolf_blitzer85 (5288 posts) -

So any word on whether or not the DLC will be free with the PC version?  
 
I am really tempted to pick this up tomorrow on 360 especially if it's five bucks cheaper than usual.

#28 Posted by nintendoeats (5975 posts) -

I'm going to buy Costume Quest instead, which has to be the exact opposite of this game in every way that counts.

#29 Posted by Nytrik (153 posts) -

/bought

#30 Posted by nick_verissimo (1397 posts) -

Damn it I can't resist sales!

#31 Posted by Bloodgraiv3 (2713 posts) -

I want to buy this, but I have to wait for the PC version, which by then will be 15$ :P
#32 Posted by rav84 (28 posts) -

Awesome news indeed, also is it wrong that one of the main reasons I want this game is for it's
amazing music ?

#33 Posted by NekuCTR (1663 posts) -

Just wait for the triple jump character Brad, now that's bad.

#34 Posted by scatterbrainn (38 posts) -

I can't help but think that Microsoft has some sort of back-handed push in all of this. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad it's ten dollars and not fifteen. However, this means that I'm going to have to buy something else in order to qualify for Microsoft's "Spend 2400 MS points, get 800 free" thing... See where I'm going with this? am I mad?

#35 Posted by Vigorousjammer (2522 posts) -

Awesome, now I can get Costume Quest AND this, I thought I was just gonna get Costume Quest and leave that leftover 950 points sitting on my Xbox LIVE account. but no longer! now I can leave that leftover 150 points sitting on my account!

PC version will have a level editor, so it might not have the same content delivery, but it'd be easy to bring that stuff over I guess.
#37 Posted by beard_of_zeus (1705 posts) -

I was already planning on picking this up tomorrow, but that reduced price just makes it a little sweeter, like some kinda sugar-coated meatloaf. Just like Mom used to make!

#38 Posted by csl316 (9236 posts) -

push the buttons!

#39 Posted by BoringK (271 posts) -

Never noticed the big Freejack poster in the offices before. Awesome.
 
Oh, and can't wait to buy this game tomorrow.

If that sucker has an upload and share feature then we are in business. Besides I imagine those guys wouldn't put out free DLC on the 360 and leave the PC hanging so I think we'll be taken care of.
#41 Posted by Lanechanger (555 posts) -

Why that's 30+ levels for a dollar!

#44 Posted by SileoNex (66 posts) -

I am actually kind of annoyed by this because now I have to find something for 400mspoints to get my free 800 points!

#45 Posted by MrPilkington (722 posts) -

All right, that's it, I am buying this game day and date of it's release. DONE!
#46 Posted by fox01313 (5088 posts) -

Wish that they'd put on sale the first week or two new releases as well as discounting older titles (like the excessively high price on both the Penny Arcade titles).

#47 Posted by LiquidSaiyan3 (464 posts) -

Waiting for PSN version... :(

#48 Posted by RenegadeSaint (1554 posts) -

Damn you, Super Meat Boy! I guess I'm buying now.

#49 Posted by MattBodega (1907 posts) -
@LiquidSaiyan3:  You may be waiting awhile. Team Meat has gone on the record saying they have zero plans to bring Super Meat Boy to PSN. :(
#50 Posted by MisterMouse (3563 posts) -
