PENNY ARCADE GAME LAUNCH AND PRICING CONFIRMED FOR PLAYSTATIONÂ®3 SYSTEM
“Episode One” To Slide onto PLAYSTATIONÂ®Network October 23
VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Oct. 21, 2008 – Anxious fans and PLAYSTATIONÂ®3 computer entertainment system owners, the wait is almost over! Hothead today announced that its well-received Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, Episode One will arrive on the PLAYSTATIONÂ®Network for download on October 23 in North America (other regions to follow shortly thereafter).
The PLAYSTATION Network version of Episode One features newly-implemented PLAYSTATION 3 system features such as trophies, score ranking and background music (BGM) support and will sell at $14.99 USD, representing a greater value to gamers than ever before. In celebration of this long-awaited moment, the WindowsÂ®, MacÂ® and LinuxÂ® versions of Episode One currently available on the Greenhouse digital distribution service (www.playgreenhouse.com) will be immediately and permanently reduced to sell at a comparable price.
“We’re so excited to finally be able to get this version into gamers’ hands,” said Vlad Ceraldi, “that we wanted to extend the same value and opportunity to anyone else who hasn’t had a chance yet to play Episode One. Other platforms and digital distribution services can make their own decision regarding pricing, of course, but we’re recommending under $15 for this and all episodes going forward. Episode Two will be coming to PLAYSTATION Network before Christmas and we are really happy how it turned out.”
Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, Episode One has been rated “M” for Mature by the Electronic Software Ratings Board for all platforms.
