"Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People" has already followed in the footsteps of the animated shorts that came before it on HomestarRunner.com and made itself availlable on PC's. Its episodes have also slipped onto the Wii one at a time, where they've brightened many a console owner's day. The Telltale games release has not, however, been an easy option for PlayStation 3 and Mac owners up until now. The publisher intends to end that situation once and for all before the end of the year, though, when the gruff-voiced little luchador comes to the PSN.
Strong Bad's game goes on sale for the PS3 in North America on December 21, according to a press release. Mac and European releases will follow soon thereafter.
At the moment, all five of SB's episodes will run you $29.99 for the PC. The new announcement doesn't explain what they'll cost on their new platforms, but it would be reasonable to expect them to run about that.
This now means that attractive Xbox 360 owners without access to other systems remain the only major platform audience unserved by these Homestar adventures. That's too bad, but the title has been around since 2008 and remains an expanding presence, so it could only be a matter of time.
And if it's not just a matter of time, well, just go buy the games on DVD, because you do that too.
