E3 06: Atari cuts prices
Indigo Prophecy, Marc Ecko's Getting Up, rest of publisher's current-gen catalog to sell for $19.99 effective June 1.
LOS ANGELES--While attendees visited Atari's booth at the Electronic Entertainment Expo this week to get a look at games like Test Drive Unlimited and Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2, the publisher announced that previous installments in those series, along with the bulk of its catalog, would soon be subject to sweeping price cuts.
Starting June 1 at participating retailers, all of Atari's existing PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, and Game Boy Advance games will carry a $19.99 price point as part of the company's new GamersFirst program. The publisher's PC titles are also included in the program--with the exception of the recently released massively multiplayer game Dungeons & Dragons Online--and will be available for download at the new price point from Valve Software (presumably through its Steam service) and Direct2Drive.
