Today seems to have a distinctly comic-book feel to it. What with news about a tabloid and then news about a more intelligent type of comic coming before this little titbit about an imaginary game-based-comic-based-movie-based-videogame. Scott Pilgrim may not be the easiest concept to explain but it is an underground (is it still underground?) comic-book smash-hit. Ubisoft are making a game to accompany the forthcoming movie: Scott Pilgrim Vs The World.
Everything we’ve seen so far of the comic books (I’m a fan), movie (looks hilarious) and game (seems perfectly in-tone) has been one step beyond awesome. So we’re cheered by the news that this download-only title is getting a pre-order bonus in the US, even if it is only a virtual tee for your pretend person in PlayStation Home.
Even better is the news via Joystiq that the US Ubistore is listing Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World: The Game for just $9.99. That is certainly a welcome price considering many recent games’ launch prices around the $15 mark. Now, can we have some news on European bonuses and pricing please Ubisoft?
Right, that’s your morning news blast. Can I have some coffee now?
