With Hype, Did Sega Just Throw It All Away?

IGN has released tentative product page for the upcoming re-releases of Sonic Adventure 2 on XBOX 360 and Playstation 3.  While the pages offer little from what we may already know, there is one item of note: The potential price.

IGN’s SA2 page for Playstation 3 lists an MSRP of $19.99, and if it holds, it would be Sega’s most expensive digital re-release to date.  To be sure, both episodes of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 retailed for about $15, and the original Sonic Adventure ran about $10 upon its re-release, plus the $5 DX add-on.  But basic rules of supply and demand may be in play here; reaction to SA2’s re-release has been overwhelming to say the least.

Sega has officially said nothing about SA2 at the moment–though we expect them to by the end of the week–and even then, it’s unlikely they would talk about pricing this early.  But if IGN’s listing is accurate, does this change your opinion on purchasing the game?  Tell us below in the comments.  Thanks to Pantagonist for tipping us.  If you have news to share, be sure to share it with us.  Click Send Tips at the top of every page, or tip us on Twitter.
