It does. The SMB steam page says so.

I hope not, the flashgame feels pretty weird imo.. but I'm confident it will feel just fine.

Oddly enough, this is my new most anticipated game of the year since GT5 was delayed. Hopefully I can preload this so I can wake up and get straight to the fun when it comes out.

39 MB? That's a pretty crazy restriction. Man that little white box is falling REALLY far behind these days. 
 
A retail version makes a lot more sense to the wii, you wouldn't have to sacrifice anything but resolution that way, and it's a pretty long game as it is, if you play as poorly I as do, at least.

Dammit! This won't run on my laptop (stupid pixel shader 2.0!), so I was really looking forward to the Wii version. Maybe I will spend some points on Bit.Trip Fate instead.

This is the news I've been waiting for. I much prefer playing these kinds of small, pick-up-and-play game on my PC (which is pretty much always on anyway) instead of having to go through the trouble of booting up the Xbox and TV set just for a quick SMB level or two...

I can't imagine trying to get through the dark world levels with a keyboard.  I know that the super hardcore flash game players would disagree, though.

The Wii comes in white, black, and red. It knows no racial boundaries. So no, you're only a bigot. Rest easy friend. :)
Also the Bit.Trip franchise seems to be doing fine for Gaijin.  They're finally porting to Steam as well, but WiiWare has sustained them for a while now. And I chose to buy Megaman 9 and 10 on Wii because fuck those achievements. :P

I wonder if early XBLA buyers will receive the level-editor that comes with the Steam version.

Hell yes, totally buying this on Steam. I didn't know that WiiWare releases had to be so ridiculously small, that's retarded.

You can always plug in a controller of your choice.. a lot of people (I'm not saying you, though) seem to assume the only way to play games on the PC is by using a mouse and/or a keyboard.  
And you can also connect your PC to your TV, if you want to play on your couch with a higher resolution than consoles can offer right now.. just saying. :)

Is there a reason this isn't on PSN? I've already purchased it on XBLA, I'm just curious why it's not coming to the PS3.

They seem to be quite confused with what to do with the Wii version.

The level editor is PC exclusive. They said that they wanted to do it across all platforms, but there were too many complications in getting servers & whatnot for user generated content on the 360 version. They will be adding the best user created levels to the 360 version via "teh internets" though.

They built early versions of the game on PS3, 360, Wii and PC. They sent early builds to MS, Sony and Nintendo, and Sony were taking far too long to reply to them, so they scrapped the PSN version.

So is there going to be a Mac version? Wikipedia lists it and I thought it would be a Steamplay title but I haven't seen any mention about it anywhere else.
