Bionic Commando Rearmed Getting PC-only Levels

By Chris Faylor, Aug 12, 2008 11:23am PDT While the PC version of GRIN's downloadable action game Bionic Commando Rearmed will sell for $5 more than the console editions, Capcom producer Ben Judd has revealed that the PC release will be receiving some exclusive challenge rooms.

"I can give you a song and dance about PC digital content being more expensive as a general rule," he told the Bionic Commando blog, "but nobody wants to hear that crap. I can say this: for the PC version we are planning on uploading some additional PC-only challenge rooms via a free patch so you will get more bang for your buck."

An enhanced remake of Capcom's old-school swinging platformer Bionic Commando, Rearmed is set to debut on Xbox 360 tomorrow, with a PlayStation 3 and a PC release (via Steam and Direct2Download) following on Thursday. The console editions will sell for $9.99, while the PC release is priced at $14.99.

When the price was detailed last week, Capcom business development and strategic planning VP Christian Svensson explained the higher PC price was a result of "different business terms/expectations in [the PC] sector" and higher distribution costs, with $14.99 representing "an appropriate price for the platform."
