Child of Eden at $35 on Amazon

Thursday, 30th June 2011 16:21 GMT By Andrew Groen

The highly anticipated spiritual successor to the all-time classic Rez has come down in price in just its third week on the market and is now going for just $35.

The offer comes by way of Amazon.com, after a seriously underwhelming performance by the game during its first couple of weeks at retail.

There’s no word on whether this is a permanent price reduction or if its a limited time offer. Given the game’s less-than-stellar opening (missing the top 20 in the UK) it’s not so far-fetched to imagine this being permanent.

Child of Eden has received a generally positive critical reception with a Metacritic rating of 83. Though some dissenting reviewers complained of its brevity.

    So it was really only highly anticipated by a small section of gaming press then and not the masses?

    TBH this should have remained a download title IMHO. MS pushed it to retail and marketed it as a Kinect title – and seem to have purchased a short period of timed exclusivity – but despite the initial launch I feel Kinect simply doesn’t have an true active user base buying games for it anywhere near the Kinect sales themselves. That’s what the sales of titles with Kinect in the title seem to be saying at the moment anyway.

    Mind you, it seems sales are down overall apart from the big online titles and maybe a few popular franchises at the moment.

    Just drop the price to a reasonable 15$/1200MSP and throw it on XBLA, lots more people will buy it then. $35 is still way too much for such a limited game.

    Idiots! Buy that piece of art or get lost. Money doesn’t matter, if it comes to supporting developers that take a different aproach to gaming. Now go play CoD6 or whatever iteration.
