Just played the demo on ps3 and I'm actually kinda interested in this game now. I've never played a telltale game but this seemed to be off to a great start. However, I wanted to buy it on pc and there doesn't seem to be a way to buy it episode by episode. It seems like it would be the same price that way ( cept I think its a 5 dollar discount on PSN for the bundle) but I wanted to try the first episode before I totally jumped in. If anyone could help that would be great. Thanks!

@Sackmanjones Nope. Pretty much they are making it so you have to buy it a bundle on PC.

Which is really weird considering Xbox doesn't even have a bundle, you just buy them individually.

You may as well buy the bundle on PS3, It's only 20 bucks.

You have to buy the whole pack on pc, no way to buy single episodes.

It was only like $22 if you got it before it released, and still only $30 now that it's out. I'd say my experience with the first episode was really good and worth most of that already, I feel good about the purchase and honestly wish Telltale would charge a bit more because when they nail their games they really nail them, and these games deserve support.

No idea if anyone is still worried about this, but as of Sunday, it was still 22.50 on Amazon. and they're just selling you a steam code.

That's upsetting to here, why would they do that on PC? I'm interested in the game but I'm don't want to commit to the full season. I've never even played a Telltale game before, didn't read the comic don't watch the TV show, I just wanna dip my toe in.

@akiman89: If you have a ps3 you can go in for a 5 dollar episode. As for me I took a gamble and bought the whole season and I was in your position. Never played a telltale game, never read the comic, I did watch the show however.  But I thought the game was excellent. Anyway like I said if you have a ps3 or 360 you can try it there.

I saw on PS3 you could buy the first episode by itself.
