Capcom's Ben Judd writes, "If you've listened to the most recent podcast, you will no doubt have heard us discussing a very important issue concerning Bionic Commando Rearmed - the price.
We've created Rearmed as an homage to the original game. It was supposed to be about showing gamers who hadn't played the original what they were missing, while trying to bring some of the older gamers back into that classic gaming magic of yesteryear. However, along the way the team and I fell in love with the game and ended up putting a lot more time, effort, and money into the project than initially planned. Personally, since the goal is to make this game for the fans and to get the world to see what makes Bionic Commando so special, I want to sell it for about US$10."
