Super Meat Boy finally coming to PS4 (and it'll be free on PS Plus)

Just when you thought your thumbs were safe from the spinning blades, fiendish platformer Super Meat Boy is coming to PS4 and PS Vita later this year. Plus, you won't even have an excuse not to drive yourself mad with repetitive strain injury as the game will be free on PS Plus on launch.

In the announcement on the PlayStation Blog, Team Meat's co-founder (writing in third person because indie) Tommy Refenes says "When Super Meat Boy was launched, Team Meat wasn’t allowed to bring it to PS3 for very complicated reasons. They hated that they had to alienate the loyal PlayStation fans who desperately wanted the game but couldn’t have it."

Team Meat is apparently over the moon that PlayStation fans will finally be able to play. "We actually never ever EVER thought this day would come and it makes us both so happy that it’s finally here!" says Refene. "We know this has been a long time coming but better late than never. Expect to be playing Super Meat Boy on your PS4 and PS Vita later this year." Our thumbs are doomed.
