Amy: Horror Title Now Out on XBLA, Next Week on PSN
After some problems with its PSN pricing, AMY is finally out on XBLA. The simply-named title is actually a horror survival video game from Lexis Numerique. You can now download the game from Xbox Live Arcade a week ahead of its PlayStation 3 launch. AMY is set to be released on the PSN starting this January 17th.
According to Lexis Numérique CEO José Sanchis, “AMY might be one of most ambitious digital console games to date, and we are really happy with our partnership with Paul Cuisset and VectorCell.” Just recently, the game was brought to the limelight for all the wrong reasons. There was a strange pricing discrepancy between the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 versions. The PSN store listed the price as $12.99 and Live Marketplace had the price at 800 MS Points, which is equivalent to $10. Gamers took to Facebook to show just what they thought about the price, voting for a decrease despite the launch delay it would cause. Focusing on the game, it looks to be an exciting third-person horror survival title. Players had to take on the role of Lana who tries to protect the titular autistic girl Amy. Players have to hide from and fight the infected while also trying to find out just how to use Amy’s special abilities against the enemies.
There is also a need for Lana to stick around Amy because she has been infected and is only able to subdue her infection by staying close to the little girl. If Lana ended up straying away from Amy, she would become mindless as the infected. That is the added challenge of the game. You can now download a digital copy of AMY from Xbox Live Arcade for 800 MS Points. If you live in Europe, you will get a copy through PSN for only £7.99.
