Penny Arcade Game Ups the Point Cost Ante at $20
Today came word that Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness: Episode One, the new game from the guys at Hothead Games, would cost $19.95 across all platforms, including the Xbox 360. This is new territory for the Xbox Live Arcade, as this would be the first time a game would cost 1600 points. It is worth pointing out that this is suppose to be episodic as well, which means $20 for each episode.
One would assume that Hothead Games sees the Penny Arcade brand as a way to charge this extra premium, but I feel that they better have something that plays better than the Sam and Max games, because right now, they have set the bar for episodic content, and at a nice easy price tag of $8.95 an episode, or included with your Gametap subscription.
