PRICE REDUCTION

Postby Psyonix-Dave on Tue Feb 05, 2013 12:36 pm

Hey Guys,

We are reducing the price of the game today (assuming it happens correctly) from $9.99 USD to $2.99 USD. We're at the point in the lifecycle of this game where it is more important to expose it to as many players as possible than how much revenue we make. I'm hoping this reduction will bring in even more players.

The reduction today is only occurring in the US. I am waiting on Sony Europe to update me on when it will occur there. I'm not sure what the price will be be exactly but I expect something around 2.08 Euro.

This stuff usually happens just before the release of the sequel. Has happened with so countless titles I'm not gonna list them here.

Just sayin

An Android port wouldn't really be very good. The only devices you'd enjoy it with are those with physical controls like the Xperia Play which is way out of date. But still a great phone ;)

A port I'd love to see is a PS Vita port that would be really cool. Would it be hard to do this?


Here's a quick video of how sarpbc shows up on vita. ofc this is running through remote play tho

feel free to remove the video if it seems too off topic.

btw that price is crazy.

Trying to get people to notice it. Although I have too many sarpbc friends on my list.
They even took the recommend button off ps store so I had to do it manually.

Cmon guys share it around that price is insane everyone should buy it now.

Why? I don't see how you can enjoy playing sarpbc on a really dodgy connection.

think im going to buy it on a EU account
does this count for EU regions as well?
also, how do you go about running two different region based SARPs on one PS3?

You just have two different Sarpbc games in the downloaded games folder. One is the US version one is EU. If I were you id buy the US otherwise you will experience a lot of lag playing on the eu servers.
