    Yeah, I really appreciate the honesty of calling it an updated version and not a remaster!

    I still listen to the Bastion soundtrack while I work on my computer. I'll definitely be giving this another playthrough!

    One of the best XBLA games in my opinion. Gladly bought it on PS4, and always glad to see a free give for previois owners.

    The real question is, can we earn all the achievements again?
    360 and One always stack (at least, I can't remember any exceptions) Especially considering the 360 version didn't have 1k GS which is a requirement on One.
    Destiny did. No longer does as of the last DLC.

    Yes, the first paragraph states it'll have new achievements.
    It states "if" it has new achievements. Was asking to see if there was any confirmation. I would assume it would though.

    Amazingly generous work from Supergiant! I'll definitely be picking up a free copy. Loved the 360 vanilla version!

    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.
    Also curious. Anyone know?

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS GAME!!

    The narration, the art direction, the story.. Hell, even the game play was fine for an arcade title. I rarely - if ever - replay games that I've completed the gamerscore on, but this is a perfect excuse being that it will have new achievements and the DLC included. Also, the original only had 200G.. this will have 1000G, possibly more if the DLC is tacked on as extra.

    And, way to go devs for giving this away to the gamers who already supported you! That's the ticket!

    Didn't make it to the second paragraph then? laugh

    Bastion Enhanced Definitive Edition.

    We were counting on this one too.
    To do or not to do. THAT is the question.

    I totally agree, this compagny should be acclaim for do doing such great aftersale policy. This is a company that adequately rewards the loyalty of its customers.

    Not like Bethesda that trying to sell a slightly improved version of an old game (Skyrim) at the price of a new game. In addition, they did not even offer discount to those who already have the 360 version.

    In fairness to Bethesda it's a lot easier to show that someone owns a digital only game than it is a game that is sold as a physical copy. If you give the discount to people who bought it digitally then you're leaving the ones who bought it physically at a disadvantage. It's kind of a lose-lose.

    On the other hand it does irk me that you have games like Terraria that didn't offer that discount. Meh on them. Limbo too but at least that was free a few times so less on that one.
    Looking to boost any MP achievements I don't have for any game I own.

    THIS IS HOW YOU DO A REMASTER! Take note all AAA developers. Best news I have heard in a while. Cant wait!

    It's not lose-lose. People who prefer buying physical games KNOW that they're not getting a permanent license. They give that up in favour of being able to resell their games. Diablo 3 on XBone was also discounted for 360 owners, for example.

    I was quite late to the party with this game but when I eventually did play it I thought it was brilliant. This is awesome of Supergiant!
