The Oddboxx, a bundle of the first four Oddworld games will be landing on the PlayStation Store in Europe today.
Two of the games come in both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita flavours and there is a bonus avatar for use on the PSN. The full pack includes:
- Abe’s Oddysee (PS3 & PS Vita)
- Abe’s Exoddus (PS3 & PS Vita)
- Munch’s Oddysee HD (PS3)
- Stranger’s Wrath HD (PS3)
- Oddworld “Abe Moon” Avatar
That’s a pretty good bundle of games although it’s a mystery as to why the Vita version of Stranger’s Wrath HD is not included.
U.S. gamers will not be getting this pack on their store as there is a problem with publishing rights.
“SCEA cannot release the Oddboxx because of technicalities regarding the product publisher code,” explains a post on the Oddworld site. “While in SCEE territories, Oddworld is listed as the publisher on all four titles (so there’s no issue), but in SCEA, Oddworld is only the publishers on two of the titles. So at the moment, while we’re hoping to find a solution, we’re not able to release the Oddboxx to you lovely American folks at this time.”
The Oddboxx should be part of today’s PSN Store update and will cost £15.99/€19.99.
