Globe and Mail looks at the varying bundles and price permutations of Warner Bros. new games on all platforms in an attempt find the best value. From the story (note that prices are in Canadian dollars):
With special editions, downloadable add-ons, and features that often vary by platform, buying games in these complicated times often requires a calculator to make sure you're getting the best deal.
The latest example is Watchmen: The End is Nigh, a two-episode series of games from Warner Bros. that has been released/will be released via Microsoft and Sony's downloadable game services, through various game portals for Windows PCs, and in a couple of boxed editions at retail stores. All of these versions come with different price tags.
Episodes one and two are available on Xbox Live Arcade for 1200 Microsoft points each, which works out to $17.40 a pop. However, Warner Bros. recently released a boxed edition which bundles the two episodes together for a suggested retail price of $39.99, or about $5 more than the total cost of buying both downloadable versions (noty including tax, which is already built into the price of games sold through Xbox Live).
