One-Liner: Insomniac Dev On 'Braid' Price

MTV Multiplayer's Stephen Totilo writes:

"Lead "Rachet & Clank: Quest for Booty" designer Brian Allgeier tells me his reaction to complaints from some gamers about the $15 price of Xbox Live Arcade game "Braid," complaints he saw a couple of weeks before "Booty" was released on the PlayStation Network for that same price."

I got banned from the gamerzone from 1 post?

These mods are a joke.

But I don't understand his argument. He doesn't understand paying for a game he hasn't played? And then not being satisfied when he drops the money for it?

Don't you take that exact same risk with every game... ever?

GiantEnemyCrab3758d ago (Edited 3758d ago )

I was thinking the same thing when I read that. He hasn't even played it?

Braid is an excellent game and I usually don't buy arcade titles at this price but I did and I did not regret it.

EDIT: Your right, KingMe I just read it again and I think he means "amazing" as in that is an amazing value vs. amazing that you can charge $15 for a side-scroller.

I think the quote is a little deceptive. He is wondering why others are complaining about the price. He is saying it is worth the $15.00.

You clearly don't understand his argument. He is arguing that Braid is a good deal for 6 to 8 hours of great gameplay for only $15.

I guess I'm just a little to used to the whole console war thing. I read "Ratchet and Clank" and wrongly assumed that he was on a pro PS3 agenda. I just read it in the wrong light. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

The difference here is Braid is a success (AAA XBL title) while QFB is a flop. Doesn't this guy have more franchises to milk? I mean R&C: Quest for the Kitchen Sink hasn't been made yet.

Bleucrunch3758d ago

yo dog do you think before you speak both games are good no need to bash rachet and clank. Your comment was unecsssary to say the least.

what's that i hear? a giantenemycrab quote from 3 days ago?
It's at 7.3 and falling.. "

damn that's some nasty fall XD lmao

juuken3758d ago

Yes's a AAA title.
Just like Too Human.

Ya see...I was right about the bots. Heaven forbid something doesn't reach 9.0 or so. It's a bloody flop if it doesn't reach that score.

You couldn't leave Rachet & Clank out of this. You had to drag a PSN title just to make your argument better.

Bravo, you win at teh internet!

Silogon3758d ago

You morons don't understand he's complimenting the game, do you?> You all are some of the most ignorant people I've ever seen here on this forum.

Bleucrunch3758d ago

Bubbles for you bro I am glad someone said it before I did. You guys really say some uneducated comments.
