......and yet another account has been created in search for the hallowed psychonauts on xbox live!

gonna give stacking a go and hopefully by the time i complete it, psychonauts will be up for our gaming pleasure!

i dont mind waiting for it in the knowledge that double fine will get all the proceeds, after all the love and care that went into making psychonauts….

So you guys know, we don’t have an ETA on this.  One of the requirements to have a game on XBLA is to have a publisher backing it, and in order to be classified as a publisher there’s a few requirements that Double Fine doesn’t really meet (Most notably, way more wads of money than we actually have. Yes, even with the kickstarer thing.)

We’re trying to get it through, it’s just a Process. Hopefully you guys won’t be deprived too long though!

Have you tried asking them to not make it so hard for you to make them money?

You’d think they would like that. The whole you making them money thing.

I mean, what’s their reasoning? If we let you make us money, then we’ll have to let everyone make us money? Yes, I see the dilemma.

Microsoft is a very large organization, and I honestly have no idea what may or may not be stalling the process unfortunately.

Yeah, I was just kidding. I’m sure they have some reason that makes sense to them. Probably they don’t want to just let anything on to the service, so that the user base doesn’t start to doubt the quality of what can be purchased on Xbox Live. The problem here seems to be their unwillingness to bend from normal policy, when they know for a certainty that the game works as it’s supposed to, and has already been on the service for quite some time. Like you said, bureaucracy.

I have to same question as Eriw, but for Brazil. It wasn’t available in Brazil before it was taken down from the marketplace.
Now that you guys seem to have a bit more control over it, could you make it available here too ? Pretty please ? :-(

It’s actually news to us that it’s available again in the US! That means MS did some magic on their end. We’ll inquire about other territories and get back to you.

When Psychonaughts first came out I didn’t have an Xbox. When I got an Xbox I didn’t have enough money. When I got enough money I couldn’t find it. I heard it was on XBL but I didn’t have an XBL account nor an Xbox360 that could connect to the internet. When I got the internet on my 360 and an account I ran out of money to but it. When I got enough money to get it the longed for game was gone. Now that it is supposedly back I am broke again.

Basically Fate hates me and doesn’t want me to play this game.

I was super psyched when I found it last Friday and downloaded it immediately. However, every time I try to play it I get the error message, “The game couldn’t start. Try downloading the game again.” Which I have done multiple times. Is anyone else having this issue?

I checked the store last night when I got home. It’s not there.

Not sure why I checked. I already own it there. I guess I just like being involved.

 

 

God, I’m pathetic.

Hey OANST, I’m not sure where you were looking, but I actually stumbled upon it under games on demand under the “most popular” tab. When I tried searching for it alphabetically it did not appear, perhaps that’s why I can’t get it to launch.

Edit: I found it, do a search under “F” for “Full Game- Psychonauts”

Ah. I looked for it alphabetically. Looks like that would be the problem.

This is good news.  I should grab it before it might mysteriously disappear again!
