Joe Danger Sequel Hitting PSN "Soon," Dev Appreciates Fans

Don't know about you, but this news made my morning.

I maintain that Joe Danger is one of the very best downloadable games of the generation. Possibly the best aside from Journey. And considering the number of great digital titles we've seen on the PSN, that's saying something.

So the fans were a little miffed when the sequel, Joe Danger 2: The Movie was announced only for Xbox Live. Most don't mind the idea of multiplatform, but to shift exclusivity...? Seemed like a slap in the face. Ah, but it wasn't...we were wrong about that. We should've remembered that Sony has this policy of forcing developers to be quiet about certain projects (although we never know why). Remember David Jaffe saying Sony would never let him talk about Twisted Metal? For like, a long time?

And so, here it is- Hello Games has announced that the fantastic sequel, which earned plenty of praise when it released on Live, is coming to the PSN. The cool part is that it's coming very soon, like possibly "in the next couple of weeks." Even better, it will boast 10 hours of extra content, and that should reflect some feedback from fans.  Lastly, the developer did confirm that they couldn't talk about this until now, so...

As for the situation at hand (which isn't a "situation," anymore), here's what Hello Games boss Sean Murray had to say:

"Genuinely I've hated not being able to talk about PSN. If I’ve learned one lesson, it’s don’t ever piss off PlayStation fans. They really made Hello Games, and we’re hopefully going to be able to set things straight with them now."

So everything's good. And we can't wait.

Even though I dont blame them for taking money from Microsoft I still dislike them quite a bit. :(

In all honesty, I think that dislike is quite unfounded, as I understand matters.

I hope the first one is added to the freebies on Plus, they often do that to promote sequels.

What a great way to show appreciation to your fans, the ones that made a sequel possible, than to have it released exclusively on the other platform first...

Indeed. I'm sure they did it just to tick off PS3 owners.

I bet they did. I know they did it for the betterment of their company. Its good to see them make good use of that MS money and give us the superior version and MS the shaft.

This sound like a PR stunt, they stabbed playstation owners in the back for money and now that timed exclusivity is up there all "ya we love PS owners"

Is Hello Games a big outfit that can afford to turn down the wad of cash that I'm sure MS threw at them?

If i remember right only 5 or so people work on the first game so I'd say they made a nice profit on PSN and even more when it came to XBL. So they would have been perfectly fine releasing it on both together.

Or maybe it costs money to develop, etc. and the amount of cash given to them was a great help to a small company.

Nah, it can't be that. They're just a bunch of jerks who hate PS3 owners and were looking for a chance to screw them over.

Great that it's actually coming, but that just read pretty disingenuous.

sweet!
loved the original oh so much so ive been really excited for this!
why do PSN games always have to release in the busiest months of the year though?
$ony REALLY needs to take a leaf out of M$s book, and release all their big downloadable games in the deserted months of the year!
IE june - august.
not freaking october - november when every man and his dog is bringing out a game!
