Price of PSN Game Is Put Up to a Poll, but There's a Catch

Illustration for article titled Price of PSN Game Is Put Up to a Poll, but Theres a Catch

The creepy survival-horror game Amy, about a psychic girl caught up in a zombie-like pandemic, is due for release on Wednesday on Xbox Live, where it will cost 800 Microsoft Points. Alright. It's due out on Tuesday on PlayStation Network, for a price of $12.99. That means the game is effectively $3 more on the PS3.

Lexis Numérique, the game's publisher, says this is because of the conversion of euros to dollars to Microsoft's play money. In Europe, you can buy 800 Microsoft points for €10, which is $12.73 US. So while the prices are equal in Europe, there's a disparity in America, and that's why the PSN version comes in $3 more.

Lexis Numérique's CEO is putting this up to a poll on Facebook: keep the bumped up price, and make the Jan. 10 release date? Or cut it to $9.99, which will require a delayed release. Right now, the cheaper, delayed version is winning by a 70-30 landslide. So, basically, we can say Amy is delayed on PSN, unless Lexis Numérique chooses not to abide by this result.

Bubbleman! Will buy a PS Vita for NHL 13 or Gundam Extreme VS, so make it reality!

Ah yes, PSN prices arent that great. Its even worse when you consider PSN+, which quite frankly is a ripoff amd total garbage. A bunch of discounts on shit nobody wants in the first place, and full game trials of titles from 2 years ago.

Still no browser update.

Still no hd youtube for PS3

Why does Sony halfass the PS3 so much? When you look at XBL, and all of the apps amd services they provide, it makes Sony look as bad as Nintendo does when it comes to online and marketplace.

I WOULD like to try some PSN games like NFL Blitz. Too bad there isnt even a demo..
