Gamers Voting Against Amy's Controversial Pricing On PSN

VectorCell and Lexis Numerique announced the release date of their upcoming survival horror game Amy yesterday, but they caused controversy when announcing the proposed prices of each version of the game in North America. However, fans are voting against their decision, they want equality. (Amy, PS3, Xbox 360)

I'm cynical... anyone else starting to think they intended to launch at the cheaper price and did this to both build hype then look like heroes of the gaming community?
mephman  +   831d ago
I can definitely see that - the game's had way more exposure now than it ever would have.
GenoZStriker  +   831d ago
Yup, I think so as well.

And for that I probably won't buy it.. cheeky buggers :P

Must everything be twisted into some sort of conspiracy?
mephman  +   831d ago
Not everything, but it does seem rather pre-planned.
BrianC6234  +   831d ago
Yes.
PirateThom  +   831d ago
Not everything, but considering the game launches next week and they're discussing a "price drop if people vote for it" just seems... odd.

Wonder if they'll be surprised to learn that consumers like lower prices?

Who knows, I kinda think they are being genuine it's not a massive title after all. It's not like a couple of bucks is going to make a massive difference to the overall sales.

Yes a couple of bucks can make all the difference

Here's an example if one million people buy amy at the 10 dollar price that's 10 million dollars now if 1 million ppl buy it at 13 that's thirteen million which is an extra 3 million

I have 10 bucks on my psn account

I could add more

but I won't.

If this drops to 10 I'd get it
BrianC6234  +   831d ago
I agree. I never even heard of this game. I'm not buying it anyway. I have too many bigger games to play. It doesn't look that great to me anyway. Maybe I'll buy it when it's on sale for 50% off on PSN.

Despite the pricing controversy the game looks pretty interesting. Might pick it up for the 360.

How dare PS3 gamers demand equal pricing!? Ungrateful bastards!
Lirky  +   831d ago
I hope theres extra content at the end of the game. Also i was thinking 14.99 and below for pricing.
mistajeff  +   831d ago
My question is, who would vote AGAINST a lower price?
ElliePage  +   831d ago
A game that was delayed on PS3 so they could make a 360 version. Now the PS3 version costs $3 more than the 360 version. However, you could vote in some lame facebook poll to try and convince them to make the price even but delay the game another week.

I'd rather vote with my wallet and not buy this mediocre shit.

Amy is a true return for Survival Horror. To me, that's priceless.
