Xbox 360 Skullgirls fans have been left in the dark after the release of the massive Slightly Different Edition patch on the PlayStation 3 back in November. The update, which contains a ton of tweaks, fixes, and features completely revamped the game for PS3 owners — so why are Xbox 360 owners being ignored?

According to a tweet on the game’s Japanese Twitter, Microsoft has some issues with the size of the patch. The tweet reads (translated by myself):

“Sorry! According to Microsoft’s rules, 4MB is the maximum for an update. But Skullgirls‘ update is about 590MB. We’ve asked for an exception, but it’s pretty hard. We’re doing our best, we promise!”

This isn’t the first time Microsoft’s update limitations have put a hamper on a game’s plans for future development. Hopefully the team over at Lab Zero games will be able to work something out to get the patch to Xbox 360 Skullgirls players. If not, well.. that’s a pretty big bummer.
