Amy: Title’s Price Lowered on PSN to Match XBLA
Of course, gamers would go for a lower price. Who would actually say that they want a higher price? In the case of the new game AMY, there have been some problems involving its price in the PlayStation Network. Before the Facebook voting has ever happened, the price of AMY at PSN is more than that of the XBLA price. Reports have it that this happened due to the EU to USD exchange rate.
Both Lexis Numérique and VectorCell had just announced that AMY will have final price of $9.99 for the PSN and 800 points for the XBLA. A voting was held on the game’s Facebook page on whether gamers would like to see AMY’s PSN price lowered to match the price of the XBLA offering or not. The other option is to keep the price as it was. Of course, the answer is pretty much expected. I wonder why there should be a voting at all. Of course, people would want a lower price. If the sellers were able to lower the price of the game, anyway, then they should have done so right away. Maybe they just want to know for sure what the gamers have in their minds about the game.
Yes, the voting was unanimous, with 70% of the voters wanting the price lowered. The surprise really is that there would be 30% disagreeing at all. Well, maybe the 30% do not want the game’s launch to be delayed. A lowering of the price is to be accompanied by a delay in the release. The delay, however, is only six days later. I guess that at least 70% of the voters know that the delay won’t be for much. So, they decided to go for the lowered price. AMY will release on PSN on January 17th.
