Microsoft Denies High Castle Crashers, Braid Prices

Update: Microsoft has informed Shacknews that the reported $22.50 price point for Castle Crashers and $15 Braid price, believed to stem from a now-removed Microsoft Japan listing, are incorrect for both domestic and international markets.

The company further noted that it will officially announce price points for those titles on the Monday preceding Braid and Castle Crashers' respective release dates, or August 4 and 25.

Original Story: Following Microsoft's detailing of August's Xbox Live Arcade releases, Microsoft Japan has revealed price points for most of the downloadable Xbox 360 games, while Capcom has separately confirmed the pricing for Bionic Commando Rearmed.

At $22.50, Castle Crashers and its hand-drawn, old-school beat 'em up gameplay ranks as the most expensive Xbox Live Arcade title of all time, a record previously held by Hothead's $20 RPG Penny Arcade Adventures: Episode One.

While these prices are unconfirmed for the North American market, Xbox Live Arcade games have traditionally sold at the same price point worldwide.
