This, and Rez HD, almost make me want to buy an XBox 360. Not quite, but almost.

It was so long ago that I don't really remember what they said, but I'm actually more tempted to go with your first theory. Also, if you look closely at the trailer you'll notice the directx effects from the Darwinia vista patch were added to multiwinia, so it may make the game more taxing to render (says the computer stuff ignoramus).

By the way, while D+ is indeed pretty awesome, at the time I played it split screen wasn't the biggest missing feature. So it's actually recommended you own both D+ and the PC versions for the full experience ;)

Will Darwinia+ be released on steam? Or is that just too uncalled for?

Darwinia+ is, more or less, a combo-pack of Darwinia and Multiwinia, which is being released for the XBox. If you were to buy Darwinia and Multiwinia on Steam, you would have basically the same thing, minus a few effects and such.

That is one of the most irritating possible posts. I wrote exactly what I meant to write, with no need for fixing.

How much/many points will it be guys?

Also - is there any intent to put defcon and subversion into the xbox arena?

oh, also why not do a theme? everyone loves the game's art style so that would get you some extra revenue too?

Defcon and Subversion - I really doubt it.

Also please avoid double posting - there's an edit button for that ;)

There's nothing officially announced regarding those and XBLA, but Defcon has been announced to PSN so it wouldn't be a stretch if it ended eventually on XBLA and Mark mentioned that it would be cool to get Subversion on XBLA, which means that they at least are considering it.

And pricing of XBLA games is ultimately up to Microsoft. Even if IV already know what it'll be, I bet they can only announce it when they also can announce the date. My personal guess is that it'll end up at 1200 points. It's probably easily worth 1500 or even 1800 (does that price point even exist?) , but they tend to err to the cheaper side.

ah righty ho - apologies for the double post, as you can see i dont post often so it was disabled as i corrected/changed my email address.

yeah im just thinking from an 'introversion revenue' point of view - i just thought that after DW+, defcon and themes etc may give that extra cash boost that could help the team.

i wouldnt have thought the development of a premium theme would be a problem :)
