Castle Crashers to cost 1800 MS Points?

I read this today over at Destructoid and I really hope it isn’t true because I feel the price of the game might turn away certain gamers and potential buyers.

Here’s a rather ugly rumor for you all to chew on this morning. Perhaps knowing that Braid and Castle Crashers are two of Xbox Live Arcade’s most highly anticipated titles, it’s rumored that the powers-that-be are being shrewed and bloodthirsty enough to charge 1200 MS points for Braid, and an unsettling 1800 points for Castle Crashers.

Four Japanese sources (including Famitsu and’s official Japanese blog) are stating that these two games will be more expensive than the average XBLA games. This is a rumortoid until we get an English announcement though. If it turns out to be true, you can color me a particularly brown shade of disgusted.

At 1800 points, Castle Crashers would be Xbox Live Arcade’s most expensive title, costing even more than Penny Arcade Adventures. Something tells me we shouldn’t have let Microsoft know that it was the first XBLA title that we all really, really wanted. Still, I’ll wait until the English announcement before I scream “F*CK YOU MICRO$OFT AND I SPELL THE “S” IN YOUR NAME WITH A DOLLAR SIGN” from the highest rooftop

I’m still picking up Castle Crashers regardless because I have played it and it is a great game, I just feel the price though will end up severely hurting it in the long run.

    I believe XBLA games should be around 800 points, and rarely go beyond that. I mean I did purchase the Penny Arcade game. We'll have to wait and see if this true. I'll play the demos and decide from there.

    Thats waaaaaay to much money. I wont even try the demo for that kind of cash. If m$ was smart they would adjust the achievement pionts on games costing 20 bucks. That kind of price scares the whores and not so rich away. Its easy to pay 10bucks for a game maybe 15 but not 20+.

    Actually, they had announced that Braid and CC would be more expensive. However, MS came out and said that the prices were incorrect, and that no pricing will be announced for the games until the Monday before they are released. Don't believe me? Here's the link: “>
