Cheats and Walkthroughs
Developer Crystal Dynamics say they are shooting for the $15 sweet spot for their upcoming downloadable title, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.
"We believe that, in terms of the arcade space, we're trying to raise the bar of what it means to spend 10 pounds or 1200 Microsoft Points on nowadays," Crystal Dynamic global brand manager Karl Stewart recently told Eurogamer.
Stewart was quick to point out that ultimately the pricing will be determined “by the first-parties and their pricing models.” But given the successes that Microsoft and Sony have had with other 1200 MSP/$14.99 downloadable titles (Shadow Complex, Trials HD, Fat Princess, etc.), I’d find it hard to believe that they wouldn’t be on board for the 1200 MSP price for Guardian of Light.
The downloadable title looks to deliver an experience that’s both a departure for the franchise (i.e. a co-op centric design), while also rooted firmly in the gameplay staples that have come to define the series (namely raiding massive and craftily designed tombs). And I have to say the result looks rather compelling.
