Sony Chasing The Binding of Isaac for PSN

Posted by Sammy Barker

In pursuit

According to The Binding of Isaac creator Edmund McMillen, Sony wants to bring the controversial Roguelike to PSN “a lot”.

The publisher’s interest was piqued when Nintendo publicly turned down an eShop release of the indie title earlier in the year. The game deals with the subject of religion and child abuse.

McMillen refused to comment on whether the title would eventually make its way to Sony’s storefront, simply stating “we’ll wait and see”.

Given Sony’s penchant for exotic downloadable experiences, we don’t expect the platform holder to give up its pursuit of The Binding of Isaac anytime soon.

I find it amusing that Sony's interest was piqued just because Nintendo publicly turned the game down. "Hey, everybody, those guys are too wussy to handle this game, but WE'RE not afraid!" Don't get me wrong, I think that's a strength of the PlayStation brand...but it still sounds funny. :P

@ Slapshot . Why?
I assumed that with a bit of clever reciding to run on the PSN this would be a decent money spinner for Super Meat Boy developers. Did ok on the Xbox. Same as Minecraft.

@IrishYort Sony wasn't interested in SMB during its development, and now it's not possible due to a contract with Microsoft.
