Rockstar Bullies 360, Wii

Scholarship Edition to let next-gen gamers enroll in Bullworth Academy starting this winter.

by

Last year, Take-Two Interactive went to court to ensure that its boarding school action-adventure game Bully could be sold in US stores. While the game was a PlayStation 2 exclusive at the time, it appears the multiplatform editions of it were merely held back a year.

Take-Two today announced that Bully will be making its way to the Xbox 360 and the Wii, as Bully: Scholarship Edition is set for release this winter. Developed by Rockstar Games, the Scholarship Edition will introduce new content to the original release of Bully, though Take-Two did not say how much new content or what it would consist of.

Earlier this week, Take-Two also confirmed that it would be bringing the formerly exclusive Xbox 360 game Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis to the Wii. Take-Two was similarly tight-lipped about the changes that will be made to that game, mentioning only that it would take advantage of the motion-sensing Wii Remote.

Bully: Scholarship Edition marks the third Rockstar-developed game to be announced for the Wii, with the first--Manhunt 2--currently in limbo after being rated AO for Adults Only.

It was cancelled because Jack Thompson threatened to take actio against bill gates, I guess Bill finally got some balls and realized: Wait, I am the richest man in the world, I can do anything!

Yeah awesome!!! I never did get a chance to pick this title up. And now Rockstar is finally giving us an Xbox version( if anybody remembers Bully was to be released for the PS2 AND Xbox, but the Xbox version was cancelled)

I wanna see a good amount of new content and better graphics. I played this game like crazy on the PS2 and I'd still like to play it again on my 360. Especially with Achievements!

If more content means more unlockables and more missons I have another thing on my wish list for Santa :)

Cool, I Might Get It? If There is quite alot of new content and the graphics are better than the wii version, it would be pretty stupid if the wii's graphics were the same as the 360's

I hope they give this game a pretty substantial graphics overhaul. I know it won't be like GTA4 graphics or anything, but I hope it doesn't look the same on the 360 as it does for the wii. Other than that I just hope they put a lot of extra stuff in there.

All I need is some new content and better graphics and I'm buying it for wii

I'm actually interested in a 360 version of Bully. Same great game, better graphics, more content, achievements, and I wonder how it'll use XBL... My only problem with it is the price. It won't be worth it for $60 at all. Bust out $40 MSRPs for both systems and I don't see a problem with it.

-I sure hope 'Bully: Scholarship Edition' gets a graphics boost for the 360, otherwise forget it.

I haven't played Bully, but would I be right in assuming that the right analog on the PS2 serves as the camera control? I'm curious as to what the new camera control convention will become. I really think Wii developers need to stray away from the center camera only option for 3rd person games, like that used in Zelda.

This makes one of only three games that I will have ever bought twice. I got 100% on the first one and I'm really looking forward to whatever new content they've got in store.

this is a good game, im glad others will get to enjoy it too. Though i would recommend renting instead of buying just cuz it takes two days tops to beat, unless you are anal and have to find every rubberband

there is a rift going on between Sony and Rockstar. Rockstar snubbed Sony's request to show GTA4 on Sony press conference.. Ohh Warrr

I still play my PS2 version I absolutely love this game, I really liked the Godfather Wii controls, it'll be interesting how it plays on the Wii but I don't think I'd buy it again just for the controls...

Hey Themilkman418, why would they release it on the ps3 if its on the ps2 already. all you would need to do is pop in the ps2 version of bully and play on ps3 with upscale rendering. MS fanboy -1 point. lol

Yes!! I was going to get the PS2 version... but now, I can get it for 360! Wonder how much more the "gaming experiece" will be on the Wii, with it's motion based controls.

GrimBee, that was a pretty dumb comment. RE4 for the Wii is one of the console's best selling games and continues to sell really well. The console's best selling game, Twilight Princess, is much more mature than previous games and has surpassed sales of the "less mature" titles in the series, Wind Waker and Majora's Mask already by a lot and those games have been out for a long time (production has stopped, but they still had a large head start). To say it doesn't have a "mature" audience, or one that doesn't buy the games ignorant.

The wii, currently, has no audience for mature titles - I mean, the audience is there, but they are not viewing anything at the moment which is any worth. I reckon that Rockstar are testing the water with some ports (manhunt 2, bully...) of games and things - and seeing what one sells best for them. If they can create a thirst for "mature" titles, I reckon that they will start to create some more original ones for the wii. But if all else fails, they can at least make some cash on games like table tennis. it seems to be like rockstar are playing it safe with the wii - until they can get creative with it.

I have to admit, Using a wiimote as a slingshot would be pretty cool.

This is great. My friend let me borrow his copy of Bully. Then he got a 360 and forgot that I had it, which is good because I kind of broke it (or maybe it's my ps2) but now I can give him back his copy get bully for my Wii and finally finish that awesome game.
