Of course it's not on the Wii, you have to use your hands! That's like a baby's toy!

Sam and Max worked well on the Wii, as did Monkey Island and Strongbad

@The Aquacharger Doesn't matter how well they worked, it mattered how well they sold.

Apparently not enough to warrant making more games.
I'm sure the hassle of compressing the games to fit WiiWares stupid stupid 40MB size limite isn't worth it either when these games are anywhere between 300MB to a Gig.

This is a really weird thing, though. You'd figure if they were sticking with the PC version, they'd stick with the easy port of the 360 version. Unless it's a Live/Microsoft problem.

I have a feeling this is a result of the 2gb size limitation on XBLA, rather than any blatant fanboyism.

And the Wii, well...

The fact that it's the best-selling console with the most interesting games that aren't full of fanboy shooter bullsh*t? Yeah that's a huge downside when you're selling a point and click adventure game that should by all rights be PC, Wii, and Move exclusive so you can have mouse-like support.

I think he just meant that the Wii can't take a 2GB+ download.

I meant more that it doesn't have a great online setup, making digital distribution more hit and miss than the other two consoles. A large percentage of the Wii's user base doesn't connect it to the internet.

I'm not saying the market isn't there. In fact, probably more than other systems. I'm just saying it'd probably sell better on a disc, and even then, it's a risky proposition.

Sam and Max are on the Wii [disc based]. Also the 2GB download limit makes no sense as the game is sold in mothly episodes. Just like Monkey Island and Strongbad were released over WiiWare.

The Wii has 512MB of internal memory. This game probably takes up more than that. I doubt they want to put a "Requires SD card" requirement on the game.

The 360 no longer has any download cap, games can be as big as they like. Also, the game is episode, each episode being release a month apart. It's very unlikely any of them will be above 2gb.

Rather that WiiWare has a 42 MB filesize limit

Though i don't see why a retail version is out of the question. Seemed to work well enough for Sam and Max

I was under the impression the cap was still in effect, hence why the Stranger's Wrath remake was only available on PS3.

Well I have a 360, a Wii, and an apparently not-good-enough iPod Touch. Guess I'll get the PC version.

Or maybe I'll just wait and see if they add an XBLA port while I play Power of Love over and over and over again on Rock Band 3.

If you aren't interested in pre-ordering, get a free episode here:

http://www.telltalegames.com/bttfoffer

Right now the coupon is applying itself, but if they change it, the code is 121GIGAWATTS.

@Rather Dashing

thanks a lot! just "pre-ordered" the first episode. I was guessing they would release the first episode free for a limited while, as telltale has done with other seasons, but can't hurt to get it now anyway.

i just bought all 3 seasons of sam & max for $20 which is their current deal going on til 10/31. I claimed the free dvds as well (shipping was $7), but I contacted customer support since it says season 3 was on back order. The email I got back said that it would be back in stock on nov. 1st and my shipment would go out then. Just FYI in case anyone else was interested.

I can't wait for the back to the future game though! Having Christopher Lloyd on board for the voices is awesome. The stand-in for Michael J. Fox is really good too, though I would've still preferred the real deal.

Thanks for the tip, just preordered the 1st episode for free. I will end up buying all the rest without even playing the first one as this should be a classic. Telltale rarely disappoints. I will not be disappoint!

I still don't know why season 2 of Sam and Max never came to PS3, but season 3 wasn't on 360. I'd rather play on PS3, but I can't see why they aren't going to all platforms, with Telltale's history with all the platforms. Maybe PS3 has done the best for them?

Maybe they want to do that package deal they usually do now? If I recall, the PS3 can do the "buy series up front and download each episode when it comes out" where as the 360 Marketplace cannot do it.

Or some malarkey.

Awww maaaaaaan. There goes my day 1 buy. I don't game on the PC, and don't have any other platforms listed. Don't see why this isn't an obvious XBLA game.

Oh well, can't win em all.
