Acclaimed Fez To be Ported To "Other Platforms" This Year
Don't get too excited; just bear in mind that "other platforms" doesn't necessarily include the PlayStation Network.
The critically acclaimed downloadable game, Fez, received plenty of acclaim in 2012 and now, developer Polytron has confirmed that it will be ported to "other platforms" this year.
Creator Phil Fish stated the following in an entertaining blog post, in which he reflects on 2012:
"...FEZ will finally be ported to other platforms. Yes, i’ve heard you, dozens of people emailing me everyday telling me how much of an idiot I am for not porting FEZ to everything."
He also talked about the future of Polytron, which includes maybe releasing the game's soundtrack and opening up a branch in the US. Fez did pretty well in terms of sales; the unique 2D platformer sold over 100,000 units, which is impressive considering that it was built entirely with Microsoft's XNA tools in an 8-bit retro style. If it does come to the PSN (and it should), it'd be a fantastic addition to Sony's digital library.
