Watchmen: The End Is Nigh Priced At $20 For PSN/XBLA/Steam

The digital download is not only becoming better and more diverse with every passing year, it's also getting a bit more expensive.

Wipeout HD was one of the first titles on the PSN to cost $20, and last year's Braid on Xbox Live cost $15. Many games only cost between $4.99 and $9.99, but there are a few that cost more to produce and are slightly deeper in terms of substance, and one of them will be Watchmen: The End is Nigh. According to Joystiq, Warner Bros. Interactive has confirmed that the episodic title will release to the PSN and XBLA with the "luxury" DLC price of $20 (it will also cost $20 on Steam). Now, maybe you'll consider this game worth the price once you lay your eyes on the screenshot gallery; it's pretty well polished. It's hard to tell how the game will turn out, though, so we suggest waiting to see a few reviews before dropping the $20. We especially recommend this based on the sheer number of options currently available on both the PSN and XBLA; excellent titles like Flower - for only $10 - may be more worthy of your time.

But we do have high hopes for Watchmen, just because we always secretly wish that a decent superhero game will arrive, be it downloadable or not. The game is scheduled to release on March 5.

Even if this gets moderate reviews twenty bucks is not much for a full game, so I might get it. Even if just for a new back story
