Watchmen: The End is dated, priced

The End is Nigh hits stores July 21; downloadable editions for PS3 and PC the next week, with 360 version to follow in late August.

The release of Watchmen: The End is Nigh Part 2 is indeed nigh, but it might be somewhat less so, depending on the version in question. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today detailed its staggered release plans and price points for the game, which will see a bundled retail release on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and digitally distributed releases on those systems as well as the PC.

Rorschach should invest in an umbrella.

The most nigh versions of the game are the brick-and-mortar packages. Watchmen: The Complete Experience for the PS3 will bundle both parts of the downloadable game with The Watchmen: Director's Cut on Blu-ray for $49.99, while Watchmen: The End is Nigh Parts 1 and 2 for the Xbox 360 includes just the games and will sell for $29.99. The retail editions of both games will debut in stores on July 21, alongside the launch of the film on DVD and Blu-ray.

Those who purchased the first Watchmen episode and don't want to buy it again in bundled form will have to wait a while longer for closure on the series. PC gamers--once thought to be missing out on The End is Nigh Part 2 entirely--will be the first able to download the game, as it will launch July 29, trailed by the PS3 version the next day.

For unspecified reasons, the downloadable Xbox 360 edition of The End is Nigh Part 2 will arrive August 26, nearly a month later than its counterparts. All three downloadable editions of the game will sell for $14.99 (1,200 Microsoft points).

why need 50 Bucks when you can download 360 games on the internet?

I might look into it. The movie was great, the comic was just as good. I think i might settle with owning the movie instead though. Ive already got the comic.

$50 for this so-so movie and two downloadable games, that's a bargain much like getting HIV, herpes, and hepatitis from the same needle using slag on a one night stand is a bargain

The real headline for this article should be "Watchmen: The End is dated, priced, IGNORED"

Why would it be better than the first? The hype around the movie is dead and there's no way they upped the budget for this...

Hmm. Hope its better than the first. And it comes with movie which is a plus but seems a bit pricy.
