$9.99

Have they added trophy support to this yet?
It strikes me as one where not having retroactive trophies in the future could be a big headache...

Thanks. I guessed it was that much, but just wanted to check. I've never bought anything on PSN, but this is making me consider it.

That makes up for the PS3 users not getting a BC multiplayer demo, GET THIS GAME! It's one of the best things on XBLA/PSN.

I hope it will be. I've been longing for that game and hope I can pick it up for 400 points.

PS: Sorry for thread jacking.

It won't be up until the store updates at around 6 p.m. central time as I just checked and it's still $10 on there.

I've been meaning to pick this up but never got around to it. Definitely picking it up now. Getting this along with Steam's previous $5 deals on World of Goo and Defense Grid (or whatever it's called), I can get used to this. Now I just have to play the darn games.

I have it on 360 and it was an absurd deal for 800 points/$10. $5 is a no-brainer. Capcom could have easily priced this at $15 and people still would have bought it in droves—it's an excellent hard-as-balls platformer, and the challenge rooms alone will break your spirit (in a good way) if you're really into masochistic games.

I urge everyone to jump on it. Felt like a steal at its original $10 pricetag - so polished. Never played the original and it took me a second playthrough to really appreciate it. Play it on easy first and then go to normal (AI really changes and you need to master swinging before taking them on).

@ callmesteam

is it multiplayer as well?

Local only. 4 player competitive multiplayer. 2 player co-op.

I was thinking about getting this. $5 is too good to pass up. I'll wait to see if the 360 version also gets a sale next week. If not, PS3 it is.

Well, there's my answer.

Thanks for the link Rouzhokuu, but man, I still don't know what to get it for. I already have a pretty descent XBLA library, but a small PSN one. After surfing the web, this game should have had trophy support by now, but doesn't. Damn...

PS3 load times on this game are half as long as the 360 version. This outweighs achievements I think.

I bought it on the PS3 for the better d-pad and the promise of implementation of trophies at a later date.. Ben Judd, the producer, originally promised that trophies would be implemented in the game. Just today he finally provided some closure on that promise stating that they ran out of time and trophies would not be coming after all.

I've never paid tax for anything I bought over PSN. I live in California if that matters.

The PS3 version also has a save bug where it sometimes deletes your challenge room data... Just a heads up. Its graphics are slightly better than the XBLA version though. Still, I'd get the XBLA version for the Achievements and lack of killer save data bug.

Oh and I wrote the FAQ for this game. :D

Awesome deal, but I have a feeling that it might be too hard for me since I am generally horrible at games. Local co-op would be fun, though, if I could get my wife to play with me on easy.

Why the "M" rating?
