Survival horror game AMY finally has a PlayStation Network release date: January 17. Originally scheduled to release alongside the XBLA version on January 11, VectorCell and Lexis Numérique have chosen to delay the release due to the results of a Facebook user poll asking participants to name their own price for the game. Over the weekend, over 1500 came in, with 70% opting for a delayed release with a price slash of $3 to match the XBLA version (800 Microsoft points).
“Because of technical constrained of the PSN Store linked to the servers, this price change will postpone the release of the PSN version of AMY in the US to next week, Jan 17, 2012,” Lexis Numérique said in a statement. “This price drop will not affect the release of AMY in the other territories, or on other platforms, as the release date for the XBLA version is still slated for January 11 for 800 MS points in the US.”
“We sincerely apologize for the confusion, and especially to those of you who have been supporting us for months and who would have liked a immediate release,” the publisher added, as well as clarifying that the price discrepancy was not meant to be “an attempt to make a few more bucks.”
AMY tells the story of a little girl with psychic powers whom protagonist Lana must protect as they try to escape their disease-ridden city. The game will release tomorrow on XBLA and next Tuesday for PSN, with a PC version “several months” down the line.
