Penny Arcade! - For Your Consideration
"You read a lot (in incandescent threads devoted to the topic) about how ten dollars is the "sweet spot" for Live Arcade titles, and that may be the case, but we should entertain the idea that its creator wasn't trying to make an "Xbox Live Arcade Game." Perhaps he was trying to make a good game, the best game he could, and Microsoft's Broadening Initiative For Digital Content was the last thing on his mind." Tycho is pretty much right; the whole Braid-pricing issue isn't just a non-issue, it's maddeningly stupid, and people - including Microsoft - need to get over it.
