Want Psychonauts on Xbox 360?

Double Fine does.

Turns out we're not the only ones who want Psychonauts to work on Xbox 360 as well as Xbox - excellent-game developer Double Fine Productions wants you to email Microsoft pretending to be dying children so they'll sort it out.

This is what they said: "I want you to get up. I want you to walk over to your window right now. I want you to open your window up, and then I want you to stick your head out, and then I want you to take in a nice breath of fresh air, and then I want you to close that window and walk back to your computer and click on this link and send Microsoft a heartfelt message. Something to the effect of, 'I am a 9-year-old boy in the hospital, dying of consumption, and my last wish is to play Psychonauts on my Xbox 360!' (Please, try to make up your own disease.)"

As you all know, Psychonauts was our favourite game of 2005 despite coming out here in 2006, and was one of the funniest and simultaneously very-good-est platform games released on Xbox (even if the PS2 version was a bit naff).

So it wouldn't exactly be a bad thing if you could play it on Xbox 360. Especially since PAL Xbox consoles don't support progressive-scan, whereas PAL Xbox 360s do - and the prospect of playing Psychonauts in every-prettier-ity gives us an even more convincing reason to waste four paragraphs talking about Psychonauts when our boss says we have better things to do.

Five in fact.
