Frozenbyte’s confirmed to Shack that Trine PS3 will sell for $20: that’s half the price “official list” price.

In defence of the news, a Trine dev said on the site’s forums:

“[Pricing] guidelines are set by our publisher. Trine is far from a game created by a solo hero developer (we have over 20 employees and Trine has contributions from a double amount of people)” and “we are very confident that we can deliver a full retail experience with Trine (hence PC version is sold in retail also for approx 35 to 40 eur/usd!).”

“As for the PSN price, our publisher and Sony sets it,” Lauri wrote in a subsequent post, later adding “heck, even I don’t know it.”

“I just don’t find it fair to compare us to games which have started at similar or higher pricepoints,”

“It’s very obvious Trine will eventually cost less, so I guess I just wanted to say that if the price hurts more than waiting, then that’s the option.”
