Eternity's Child jumps from XBLA to Wii
And the Xbox Live Arcade size limit rears its ugly head once more. Shacknews reports that would-be XBLA title Eternity's Child has been moved from Microsoft's downloadable game service to the Nintendo Wii. The news comes from an Art de Jeu interview with the game's creator Luc Bernard. The reason for moving the title to Wii, according to Bernard, is that the game's high resolution art would break the 150MB size limit for XBLA titles. We should note, however, that Eternity's Child was never officially confirmed for XBLA in the first place. Still, it wasn't that long ago that many complained the original 50MB size limit was too low -- even though such constraints can spark innovation in some cases -- and now we may be seeing the beginnings of similar complaints leveled at the new limit. With the Wii selling like hotcakes to casual gamers, it will be interesting to see if it winds up as the new home for overambitious (or poorly compressed) XBLA titles.
