Amy Releases Next Week, Along With Odd Pricing

Amy, the survival horror title coming from VectorCell, is set to release next week, though the exact dates are a bit screwy. The game will release in Europe on January 11th for both PSN and XBLA. In the states, it will launch on January 11th for XBLA, though it will release for the PSN a day earlier on January 10th. Like I said, the dates are a bit odd, but they’re solid.

As for the pricing, however, that’s a totally different story. Amy will cost $12.99 (€9.99, £7.99) on the PSN. For the Xbox 360 it will run players 800 Microsoft Points. Sounds simple enough, right? Not really when you look at it. Taking into consideration that the 800 Microsoft Points is about $10 when converted, 360 owners are picking up the game for almost 3 dollars cheaper. I guess that’s the price you pay for an earlier release, right?

Amy is also set to come to the PC, but VectorCell says it won’t be until “several months after the PSN/XBLA version, and we can’t announce a date yet because we haven’t totally finalized our distribution details.” I am excited for Amy, but I hope that VectorCell has their ducks in a row on this one. The last thing we want to see is a distribution error, and they’ll no doubt already be in hot water with the pricing differences.
