Re: Trine PC Priced at $40?

Huh, so PC players end up paying twice as much as console gamers. Great way to alienate your existing fanbase. Even if all this is thanks to the publisher, you still had some say in going with said publisher in the first place. This is why giving up freedom for funding is bad idea, and might not ev...

Re: Trine PC Priced at $40?

I'm not informed? As of now I'm operating under the following information, Europe is the 2nd largest market (just google it or if you don't want to http://vgsales.wikia.com/wiki/Video_game_industry), if they had better sales, they'd be the largest market.
