Speaking at the Nordic Games Conference, Soren Lund, director of the two Watchmen downloadable episodes, recently expressed his concern over Warner Brother’s overpricing of the initial episode. Lund believes the $20 price tag was too steep for gamers.
However, Lund believes that the overpricing was due to inexperience on Warner Brothers part.
“[They] didn’t have any previous knowledge as to what would be the right price point.
“I think it’s a shame that Warner priced it at $20. It should’ve been max $15; ideally $10.”
Lund concedes that he hopes part 2, which is considerably smaller than the first, comes in around $10.
“We have maybe a little over half the size of [the first] game, so I would expect them to put it out at about half price. But then you could argue whether two hours for $10 isn’t too much also.”
Watchmen: The End is Nigh Part 2 is set to hit the PSN sometime next month. A blu-ray retail release is scheduled for next month as well, and both episodes will be packaged with the extended version of the movie.
