XBLIG version of Penny Arcade 3 delayed for a very retro reason

Zeboyd Games was all set to release Penny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 for the PC (through Steam) and the Xbox 360 (through Xbox Live Indie Games) on June 25. They even pushed up the game’s release by two weeks because it was done early. But I guess the XBLIG version needed a few more days to cook.

Apparently, if you’re using a Memory Unit and you pull it out at the exact moment your game is saving, your Xbox 360 will crash. The whole thing is giving me “Hold Reset While You Press the Power Button” flashbacks. Which I guess is more-or-less fitting due to Penny Arcade 3’s pixelated flavor.

But as retro cool as a buggy Memory Unit is, it means that Penny Arcade 3 won’t make its June 25 release date on the Xbox 360. A new release date wasn’t announced, but the XBLIG service requires a seven-day waiting period after a failed Community Peer Review.

So hopefully Penny Arcade 3 will be released on the Xbox 360 sometime in July.
