Braid Warps On XBLA This Wednesday
Written Monday, August 04, 2008 By Jason Debelyak
Braid, the time manipulating platformer from Number None Inc. and Jonathan Blow, will be making its way to the XBLA this Wednesday. We've heard rumors that the game will cost a whopping 1200 MSP ($15) for a couple weeks now, but Microsoft squashed the rumors by saying that official prices won't be announced until the week of the release date.
Well, the 1200 price point was correct, and will join the ranks of some of the most expensive games on the Arcade. However, it's also one of the most creative games to join the XBLA lineup, and one of the few that may warrant the high price tag. I know quite a few of us here at X360A, including myself, absolutely can't wait for this title, so don't let the high price tag make the decision for you.
Now we'll just have to wait to see if the enormous 1800 point ($22.50) price tag for Castle Crashers is correct. Hopefully it'll be a bit lower, although even if it remains at that price, I don't think it will deter any of us from purchasing it.
This also marks two weeks in a row without a double-release on the XBLA, unless they announce another game in the next couple days. They're releasing some high calibur games right now, but the more games we have on XBLA the merrier.
