Activision’s rolling out a new Soldier of Fortune title called “Soldier of Fortune: Payback” for the PC, PS3, and the 360 in November and there’s word out there from the various news outlets that it’s going to be, unofficially, part of their “Value” line which translates over to a game with a lower than average price. At least, that’s what you’d think. Gamestop has it priced at $39.99 for PCs but the 360 and PS3 versions are listed at $59.99. Some value.
That might change before it’s officially released, but I wouldn’t be surprised if console players were screwed over again in the price department. As for me, I might pick it up for the PC if only because I can save that $20 for other games, or even a chicken sandwich. If one thing hasn’t changed, it’s the gore thanks to the clip that Kotaku has showing the next-gen touches that the series has gone through. But I wonder if the multiplayer will be any good.
