This Week On Live Arcade: Who Pays $20 For The Watchmen?

The $20 Steam pricing for Watchmen: The End is Nigh carries over to the Xbox Live Arcade version of the game, due out this Wednesday.

Definitely not a case of PC taxing, Deadline Games' Watchmen: The End is Nigh carries the same $20 price tag as the version going up on Steam, which translates into 1600 Microsoft points. A hefty price tag, to be sure, but other games priced at such a level have generally had the content to back it up. Watchmen features six chapters of action as Rorschach and Nite Owl battle to take down Underboss, recently escaped from prison and now "ruling with vicious darkness", whatever the hell that means.

With the Xbox Live Arcade version sharing the same price as the PC, expect to see the PlayStation Network version follow suit. Is it worth it? The game basically needs to be a god Batman game without Batman in it. Don't think I'm gonna chance it.
