Five dollars to make you holler
Though there are rumblings that the upcoming XBLA/PSN/PC release of Sonic Adventure 2 may have a $20 price point attached to it, today Sega announced that the original Sonic Adventure will see a permanent price reduction to $5, with the DX add-on DLC going down to $2.50. Along side Sonic Adventure, Happy Tree Friends: False Alarm is also seeing a price reduction to $5. Though the Sega blog post only lists these prices as applicable to the Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network versions of these games, the Steam PC release of Sonic Adventure DX currently sits at a comparable $8.99 price tag.
Is this a sign of things to come? Could Sonic Adventure 2 launch lower than expected? Stay tuned.
