celebration of this long-awaited moment, the Windows®, Mac® and Linux® versions

to get this version into gamers’ hands," said Vlad Ceraldi, "that we wanted to
extend the same value and opportunity to anyone else who hasn’t had a chance yet
to play Episode One. Other platforms and digital distribution services can make
their own decision regarding pricing, of course, but we’re recommending under
$15 for this and all episodes going forward. Episode Two will be coming to
PLAYSTATION Network before Christmas and we are really happy how it turned out."
