Since when do they not just replace the $-sign with an €-sign anymore?

Those Signs are different.

YES. I was worried they had scrapped the Munch's Oddysee port.

@2 I think you mistook what #1 was saying, IMO he was complaining that Sony treat the euro and the dollar as equal and thus overcharge Europeans, they did the same to $ and £ until about a year ago which was an even bigger con.

I'd prefer if Sony developed a universal currency, like MS Points, and allowed shops to sell them at competitive rates. We'd then ALL be able to hunt around for the best value, and as retail-based tax could then be ignored for any PSN purchases worldwide (because it'd be applied to the purchase of "points" and not the subsequent purchase of content).

I just want Sony to give EVERYBODY a fair deal, I want to have a go at the Youtube app FFS!

Apple used to be notorious for just replacing the $ with a £.

Mistake, Munch isn't coming to Vita until February. They said so on their Facebook page in one of their comments and it only talks about the PS3 release date on their official site.

Great news though!

These will be a great addition to the Vita line up. Hopefully a full trophy list and Platinum for both.

@5 yes your right i didn't actually know what he ment by that so thanks for pointing that out.

I'm sure i read Just Add Water was making a new Oddword game for the PSN but i might have got that mixed up with a HD remake. I would love to see a 2D platformer like the first but updated on the PSN.

I remember playing one of these Oddworld games once before....but not much of it, but it was pretty neat. Though I don't think it was any of these, as it was a 2D one I had played. But regardless, this now looks as interesting as can be and I might pick it up next week perhaps.

Not that I don't already have enough games on my Vita to keep me busy for a while >.>

I only heard of this series when they gave Stranger's Wrath HD for PSN+ members, and may get Munch's Oddysee if it's good since 9€ isn't that much (still waiting to see if I can get NFSMW or Hitman for 20€ in the Christmas sale though, since I can't spend more then that in games this month..).

Anyway, can someone who played it, tell me if it's as fun as Stranger's Wrath?

@13 Munch is a 3D platformer. It's great fun and the reason why I got an XBOX. I'm a biased fanboy though so don't just take my word for it.

Stranger took the Oddworld series in a different direction so they are different, but I will still recommend it.

Does anyone know if it's a cross over purchase or would I have to buy a vita and a ps3 version.

I'll grab Munch's when it comes out in North America. Any idea when?
It's a steal for $9,99! No cross-buy though, eh? :(

@17: No, Strangers Wrath doesn't feature cross buy from what I've read.

If there not cross buy will they be cross trophy or if you have both will you get two plats? When I mean both I mean a ps3 version and a vita version of the same game!
