Puzzle Fighter priced the same on 360 and PS3
Speaking to Gamasutra, Christian Svensson, Sr. Director of Strategic Planning & Research for Capcom, noted that Capcom will release Puzzle Fighter II on Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network (PSN) for the same price. According to Svensson, "We're offering the same value as far as the type of content, so it only stands to reason. If the timing's the same, and if the content is the same, pricing should probably be the same." Puzzle Fighter II is notable as one of the first games to debut on both Xbox Live Arcade and PSN, which Svensson notes was fairly difficult to coordinate, but simply part of Capcom's strategy. Svensson notes, "It just comes down to platform strategy in general. If you're going to spend money to make content, it only makes sense to try and put it in front of as many people as possible." Svensson does admit, however, that console exclusive downloads are "possible," but that Capcom as a whole is moving towards a mutli-platform approach.
The question is, now that we know the price will be the same, what will that price actually be?
