We realize that with yesterday's announcement
of "Beyond Good & Evil 2
," some folks may have tragically missed out on the first entry in the series. We've put together a quick list of places where those not familiar to the series can get the game and meet up with Jade, Pey'j and -- our favorite personal assistant -- Segundo.
Steam (PC) -- $10
GameTap (PC) -- $1 for the first month, $10 after that.
GameFly (Xbox, PS2 and Gamecube) -- Various rental plan prices, but currently copies are subject to availability.
GameStop -- Currently, we can only find the somewhat dodgy PS2 version available online for $8. Check your local shop and you may get very lucky.
Those who find a GameCube version can rely on the Wii's backwards compatibility to play the game, and PS3 owners can pop in the PS2 game if their systems support BC
. The Xbox 360 currently does not offer backwards compatibility for the Xbox version of BG&E
. We're sure there are more corners of the internet to find Jade & Co., but it appears that $10 is what you're likely to pay.
