The PS4 seems to be getting an OG Xbox exclusive soon. When the original Xbox came out in 2001, there wasn’t much of a reason to own it with PlayStation and Nintendo already firmly established. To get the industry’s attention, Xbox has locked down exclusive games, similar to what they’re doing with acquisitions. The original Xbox featured some of the best exclusive games of that generation, across all consoles. One of the better of these exclusives was released in 2005. 17 years ago, Oddworld developer and publisher EA released the fourth game in the Oddworld series, Oddworld. : Stranger’s Wrath, at the start of the year on January 25th. And it went on to become one of the best games of its year, a year that also saw releases like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas , Resident Evil 4, God of War, Shadow of the Colossus, Forza Motorsport, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, Battlefield 2, Psychonauts, Half-Life 2, Jade Empire, Call of Duty 2, Ninja Gaiden Black and Guitar Hero. Really, this is just the tip of the iceberg. It was one of the greatest years in gaming history, but Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath still stands out.
Since 2005, the game has come to other platforms, but it hasn’t come to PS4. Most recently, it came to the Nintendo Switch, but it doesn’t appear to be the final port as this week the game was uploaded to the PSN backend, which not only leaked the existence of the PS4 port. but also hinting that it will be released soon. If this is true, the transition from announcement to release can be quick.
While there’s no other explanation for the game being uploaded to the PSN, it’s important to remember that the use of “reported” in the title is because none of this is official. The game is yet to be announced for PS4, but we suspect this will change anytime soon. Like the PS5 fpr, there’s a chance that this could also come to the PS5, but for now the leak suggests it’s only for the PS4, of course, it will be playable on the PS5 through backwards compatibility.
