In a very long post written by Tommy Refenes, he explains that the upcoming XBLA version of Super Meat Boy will feature a console-exclusive ‘chapter’ called Teh Internets, which basically can be summed up as a means of distributing free content to fans who have already purchased the game. According to Team Meat, this is done via the Title Managed Storage (TMS) feature on the Xbox LIVE service, which is a sort of storage space normally reserved for delivering critical updates on other XBLA games.
Each Internets chapter will contain twenty levels to play, and the first chapter (named The Butcher Boy) will also be uploaded on the same day that Super Meat Boy launches on the XBLA. The list of chapters to be released are as follows:
– The Butcher Boy, an 8-bit themed Meat Boy chapter (20 Oct 2010)
– The Sewers of Dross, an entire chapter specifically for Gish (Q4 2010)
– Meat Boy, another 8-bit themed Meat Boy chapter (Q4 2010)
– Debug World (Q1 2011)
– untitled chapter (Q1 2011)
More details about this console-exclusive content can be found on Super Meat Boy‘s official site.
