Rez HD Coming to Xbox Live Arcade

Tokyo developer Q Entertainment has announced that it will be bringing an updated version of the Dreamcast cult hit Rez to the Xbox Live Arcade in the first quarter of 2008, tentatively entitled Rez HD.

Speaking at Microsoft's pre-Tokyo Game Show event, Q Entertainment CCO Tetsuya Mizuguchi said, "We are excited to announce that Rez will be given a new life, this time in digital form. The game will be presented in hi-definition and will be accessible to those who did not have a chance to experience Rez this first time around." Mizuguchi was formerly president of United Game Artists, the Sega division responsible for the original Rez.

"Personally, Rez has been and will always be a lifelong concept," he added. "I hope to take what I learned from the experience of creating the original game and look forward to taking it to a whole new level in the future."

Originally released in 2001 for the Dreamcast and PlayStation 2, Rez received critical acclaim but little commercial success in North America due to its unorthodox gameplay. Instead of using traditional sound effects, Rez employed background trance music that changed as the game progressed, and much of the game's marketing focused on its synesthesiac qualities.

The problem with good, obscure games is that they are hard to find. Games distributed online are never in short supply. Great news.

So now the crucial question: will it ship with the Trance Vibrator?!?!

That is exactly the question that I started thinking.

Since its a downloadable game, whats the chance they will start selling a usb vibrator as a separate accessory? They could even add in some software to make it work with the music visualiser as well. Awesome.

Great minds think alike, and fools seldom differ. I was thinking precisely that myself.

You can add my mind to the collective gutter. Same thought.

HAY DOODZ SUP WITH THIS VIBRATOR STUFF

Seriously, you guys want to keep a lid on that kind of talk. Too much of it and you'll end up having to show ID before you'll be allowed to download it.

(insert rote comment about the contrast between violent content and sorta-sexual content in games, and what this tells us about society)

"Could you do the 2nd Area again? That's my favorite."

Completely forgot I had this. I am off to play Rez HD.
