The GameSpot editors have corrected their Hands-on Preview of Beautiful Katamari to eliminate any possibility that the game would be coming to XBLA.
A bit of news came out last week (from N'Gai Croal actually) about the newest Katamari installment (titled Beautiful Katamari) possibly being a 360 exclusive. As a 360 owner I was excited but I assumed it had nothing to do with us here at XBLArcade.com. But GameSpot may have proven our assumptions very very wrong.
Brad Shoemaker, of GameSpot, is reporting that Namco Bandai will not only be making Beautiful Katamari a 360 exclusive, but also that it was arrive in October on Xbox Live Arcade.
If this all proves true, the news is so good it is likely to spawn more "Microsoft to buy Namco Bandai" rumors. With the current 1200 MS Point ceiling for XBLA titles, any Katamari fan would likely pounce on it. And for those new to the franchise, even at $15 the price certainly seems right. Whatever happens, I say keep it coming Namco Bandai.
