    This news has made my day. I never replay games because of my enormous backlog, but I will gladly go through this gem again. Love it.

    If we buy the 360 version now, will we still have the free opportunity when it releases on the one? Or did we need to have it before the announcement?
    I'd like to know this as well. I've been meaning to get it for ages so might do now.

    This is wonderful news. And for free for 360 owners, it's too good to be true. Can't wait to replay this one.

    I could never get the hype. Solid game with great narrator and soundtrack but boring gameplay. Solid 4 stars for me. Nothing more.

    I would rather like to see what Transistor is about.
    Well most of the hype revolves around the great narrator and fantastic soundtrack. Most of the people I know think the gameplay is adequate if not slightly annoying in a few areas. The customization is nice but not spectacular. Generally the gameplay is in service to the story not the other way. So that pretty much is the hype.

    With that said I would hope that this eventually leads to Transistor. I'd like to play that.
    Looking to boost any MP achievements I don't have for any game I own.

    For new achievements, and the retouched game, this is totally worth it. I love the game on the 360, so this should be a nice revisiting.

    Given all the love this game is getting in the comments and the fact that Supergiant is doing this at all, I'm going to chance it. Best case, I get both versions. Worst case, I just threw some of my gaming dollars to someone who probably actually deserves them, and I get to play the 360 version of a game people love.

    *Bought*.

    Good man. You won't regret it. The game is not difficult, but it's not a cake walk either. The fact that 1/3 of the people who have played it got all the achievements tells you a lot since that involves playing through the game -essentially- twice.

    I played played the demo on the 360 and liked that but never actually got the game. I always did want to play it eventually. This is the perfect opportunity to do so. Looking forward to finally getting the full experience.

    Spending dev time updating it and then giving it away to owners of the original. This kind of thing doesnt happen often. Thanks devs.

    2nd playthrough takes no time though.

    Such a fantastic game. I still boot it up from time to time just to hear Zia's song. I was so hyped for Transistor when they announced it and so disappointed when I saw it was PS4 exclusive. They really should make a port for Transistor if they were willing to do a remaster and give Bastion away free for 360 owners. I'd buy it day one, full price, no doubt. And I buy almost everything gaming-related on sale.

    Anyway, I know what I'm going to be doing once this hits the One.

    Yeah really hoping Transistor comes over. So happy to have a reason to play Bastion again.
