Earlier today a story broke about the Japanese Xbox site reporting that Castle Crashers was slated for release at 1800 Microsoft Points. Pricing for this game has not been determined yet (http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/53933). Both The Behemoth and Microsoft are still working together to figure out a reasonable price point. (not 1800 points)
One thing that we would like to point out is that much like a retail store Microsoft is the distributor for all Arcade titles, and therefore sets the final price. The developer can consult on this, but ultimately, pricing is at the discretion of the distributor (Microsoft).


THIS GAME WILL NOT COST 1800!

Glad to hear the game isn't going to be 20 bucks. I wasn't going to cough that much up. I'll just end up playing the trail version a bunch of times and that's it lol. It'll probably be 1200 points but I still won't pay up that much though till I get a shit load of MS points.

after dropping 700 point on a expansion that lasted me less then a day (puzzle quest) I'm not sure I wanna drop 15-20 dollars on another XBL title.

The thing is this isn't some small game, it's a rather large hack and slash along with RPG stylings and 20+ characters. I would have no problem paying 20 dollars for this.

I can never really understand why arcade games really sell for more than 600-800 points as it is. I mean... especially when some of them aren't even that large of a game. If this game sells for anywhere near 1,600 (god forbid more), it sure as hell better be amazing, contain amazing playability, and have a whole smorgasbord of downloadable content set up in the future (preferably free).

its not 1800 its 1200, its an allright price since the game is popular, the reason why its not 1800 is because its a 2D not high graphics like Penny arcade and thats only 1600.

what is going on with these "orginial" games costing so much money?! to charge 1,200 points for this which is just another verison of alien hd but a medevil knight with a sword is crazy, the art style is even exactly the same, they are basically selling the same game again. plus it's just a arcade game. guess they thought if braid could get away with it so could they.
