Scott Pilgrim more expensive on XBLA

#1 Posted by SolidOcelot (345 posts) -

I just noticed this,on PSN Scott Pilgrim is $9.99 and yet on XBLA everywhere i look says 1200 ($15) what is going on here. Is Microsoft finally setting the standard of 1200 points on XBLA

I don't think that game is worth $15. I love it, but I'd have a hard time buying it for 15.

Glad I don't like Scott Pilgrim lol.

I could care less about Scott Pilgrim, but I must admit the game looks sweet. If it really is $15 then screw that noise, I can live perfectly fine without it

So this is turning into another "I don't care about Scott Pilgrim" thread?

Yeah, on his blog Major Nelson says it's 800 points ($10). I can't think of anything that's come out for different prices on XBLA and PSN. Personally I can't wait to play it. I loved the movie and the game looks like a good old school throwback.

Your avatar, it somehow looks familiar.

But the real question is: blond or raven haired?

WTF?  Why do PSN users get a one cent discount. 
 
Fuck Microsoft.

 well that  kind of sucks but i am still going to buy it though 5 bucks more isn't that big of a deal

#18 Posted by zityz (2360 posts) -

Well tons of people bought Limbo, so if that's the case anything can be charged for $15 and people will still buy it.

it's actually $10 so no need to spend $5 extra.

DLC for the new Makoto character in Blazblue: CS is the only example I can come up with. It's $1 cheaper on the Xbox 360.

I am curious though at how a few people are already playing it -_-. I really shouldn't be spending money but for $10.00 and it plays like an old school beat em up I'm down.

In the October issue of OXM it says that this game will be 1200 ms points. I hope that was an error, but we won't know for sure until it comes out on XBLA.

#22 Posted by ImperiousRix (2963 posts) -

I certainly hope this is an error (some people are claiming it's 800 whilst others are saying it's 1200). 
I have 880-somethin' MS Points lying around in my bank that I was gonna use on this game, and it's really going to bum me out if I go to DL it and the price is 1200.  I don't know if I'll even download it at that point.

#23 Posted by TheFreeMan (2712 posts) -

I'm pretty sure that it's not 1200 points. Inside Xbox (or whatever the features are called) said that the game is 800 points only, plus a bunch of sites on the internet are listing the game as 800.

@Andorski:
And dumbest comment in the thread goes to the fanboy complaining about a 1-cent price difference.

@AriesDog: And the dumbest comment in the thread goes to the guy who takes a joke comment seriously.
 
Also the game is gonna be 10 dollars for Xbox
 
Played it on the PS3 already and I'm gonna buy it again for my 360 because I have more controls for that. Also PS3 user's have yet to be able to unlock a 6th character and rumor has it that 360 won't get the 5th secret character in place of the 6th.
 
Console specific secret characters.

I'm definitely waiting to see if there are any version specific differences. Barring that I'll probably just go back and get the PSN version because I like the d-pad better.

Before the game came out nobody was sure what the price was going to be, but know that it came out we know it is 800 ms points.
