PC deal

#1 Edited by Hdfisise (137 posts) -

With the new XBLA edition out many people may forget about the fact it is on the PC. In fact it is out on the PC for 75% off with the coupon blitz1 available to reduce the price again by 50%. So if you are interested in buying peggle but don't want to cough up 800MS points I would recommend getting it on PC. It should also run on virtually every PC/laptop going as well.  Using this I managed to pick it up for £1.28 earlier which is much better than the XBLA price. 

EDIT: I should have mentioned this is directly from Popcap's website

From PopCap's online store apparently.

Peggle Extreme is indeed free on Steam now. But that's not the full game; it's a shorter version of the game with new levels. You are not getting the full experience from that version. If I recall correctly, you can't even use most of the characters; only Bjorn.

Having not played the "full version" of any of the Peggles games, what exactly am I missing gameplay wise?

Gameplay wise, you're missing out on 9 additional characters each with their own unique power there to assist you in beating the levels.

Content wise, you're missing out on 55 levels and 75 challenges -- none of which were in Peggle Extreme.

I recently pirated the game to see what all the fuss is about and played through the adventure mode, but since piracy isn't my thing I just bought it. I would've preferred to have it on my Steam account though, but meh, for €2.25 I can't complain.

I'm waiting for the iphone version of peggle. It is going to be terrible, I'm going to get terribly addicted and will be playing it wherever I go, and I can see me missing my bus stop regularly because I'm being distracted by peggle.

Peggle on XBLA has awesome online and offline multiplayer modes though.

Think of the achievements! No monetary reduction is worth it without a feeling of accomplishment as you play!
