  1. Why not companion on ps app?

  2. I really wish Team17 would do something other than Worms. As much as I’ve loved it in the past, it’s getting a bit much now.
    Oh and it’s £35! Not quite as outrageous as Angry Birds but still grossly overpriced IMHO.

  3. £35 does seem far too much, will have to read/hear more before purchasing. If I do, at the price, may as well go boxed (Unless it’s a code in a box).

  4. Nice to see they’ve started with a solid 65 weapons this gen, rather than the bare minimum. But yeah £35 is indeed silly. Will probably pick it up in the inevitable mega sale in the next couple of years. About £5 works for me.

    • The worst thing about it, is that they priced it 25$ for digitial in US. That’s around 15£, which means it’s 135% more expensive in UK & way more then double. It’s also more then double, if comparing with the Euro price. What the hell Team17!

      For their sake, they better announce a much lover digital price soon.
