If the mostly positive talk (we'll have a Quick Look up tomorrow) about Resident Evil: Revelations has you considering the series’ debut on 3DS but price is an obstacle, maybe Capcom has worked out a solution.
The company announced this afternoon that Resident Evil: Revelations retail price would be dropping from $49.99, which is more expensive than most games you’d regularly buy for a 3DS, to $39.99--a $10 cut.
“Since the announcement of the $49.99 price point, we've spent weeks looking for a way to bring your cost down to standard 3DS pricing,” said community manager Bret Elston. “Today we can finally confirm we were successful in this, and hope the reduced price encourages even more people to check out this strong entry in the Resident Evil canon.”
It’s unclear what hurdles Capcom lept over in order to bring the price down $10, but for the price sensitive consumer, it doesn’t really matter. At the end of the day, the next Resident Evil is cheaper to buy on February 7.
