On Universal Combat Pricing

In apparent response to 3000AD's Derek Smart's complaints about the price point for Universal Combat (story), DreamCatcher sends along a brief statement describing their stand on the decision to market the game as a value-priced product:

A DreamCatcher Spokesperson says “Our pricing strategy has been set in the best interests of the title and more importantly the consumer. Universal Combat provides terrific value to the consumer at $19.99 and we are happy to be able to deliver that value.”

DreamCatcher does not expect to comment further on this matter.

Translation:

"This game sucks too much to sell for $50, so we're hoping that people will buy it despite the horrible review its probably going to get."
