So why isn't binding of isaac rebirth coming to Xbox One?

This is pretty depressing... However I recommend you all buy this for your PC if it doesn't come to Xbox One eventually because the previous game was amazing.

Anyone know why this isn't coming to Xbox One? I mean it's pretty obvious why it probably won't make it to 3DS (religious content and whatnot)

It's an indie game, these guys aren't rolling with a huge budget. It probably would just cost too much.

Because of how poorly Microsoft treated Edmund when super meat boy came out. He said he will never work with Microsoft again

" PC version of the game on Steam has sold roughly twice as many copies as the XBLA release." I guess it's true Xbox One fans care much less about indie games. But Binding of Isaac is a much better game than Super Meat Boy anyway. It is the kind of addiction anyone can have. I mean black ops had a twin stick shooter in it and people loved that.

I'm assuming the guy that said they would never work with MS again is the one closest to phil fish from the documentary?

And the one that actually said that a partnership is possible is the sane one?

I don't play indie/arcade games.

Microsoft has pissed a lot of indie devs in the past. So a lot of them won't ever work with Microsoft again.

Proving they are overgrown children who need medicating, since there is yet to be a shred of evidence of MS doing anything wrong.
