Critter Crunch Hits PSN October 8 for $6.99!

Kris Piotrowski's Avatar + Posted by Kris Piotrowski on Sep 23, 2009 // Creative Director, Capy

Hello Blog friends,

Kris from Capy here, signing in just to drop a quick little announcement bomb on all y’all brains:

Just in case you didn’t actually watch on the video above, here’s what you missed:

CRITTER CRUNCH IS COMING TO A NORTH AMERICAN PLAYSTATION 3 NEAR YOU ON OCTOBER 8TH, AKA “THE DAY OF THE CRUNCH” AKA “CRITTER HOUR” AKA “BIGGS’ BIG BBQ BASH.”

And it’s $6.99. SIX DOLLARS AND NINETY-NINE CENTS.

Why? Because we love you, and because we care. And it let us do that animated switcharoo-thing with the “9″ transforming into the “6″ after Biggs peels the price, which we think worked out really well.

Anyway, let me break it down for you in equation form:

(Biggs + Smalls + Critter Crunch) x (October 8th (You – 6.99)) = AWESOME FUN PUZZLE PARTY.

Stay tuned for lots more info on the PlayStation Blog and on www.crittercrunch.com as we approach October 8th.

-Kris

Was somewhat interested in the game before, but with that price I will more than likely pick it up as soon as it is released.
Good Job

This game is totally awesome on iPod Touch. I can’t wait to play it on PS3 – should be even better.
Is the release date for Europe the same?

    + Kris Piotrowski on September 23rd, 2009 at 3:22 pm said:

    CC is coming to Europe soon after the North American launch and the price will be in a similar ballpark, meaning that it will be a damn fine deal for the Europeans as well.

+ Ejsponge61 on September 23rd, 2009 at 3:14 pm said:

Great news! But I still wish this was on PSP Go, then it would be a definite buy.

    Check out our site (www.capybaragames.com) or the Critter Crunch site (www.crittercrunch.com) for a list of trophies. We\’ll have them posted for you sometime TOMORROW!!

+ Microshock on September 23rd, 2009 at 3:20 pm said:

Wow. First, that’s an awesome price. I may actually buy it since i assumed it’d come out at 10- 15 dollars.

And it looks like a nice game.

So consider it an almost-sell? Depending on if i get enough money for this and uncharted 2

    I would suggest putting a one shiny quarter into a jar labeled \”Critter Crunch Fund\” every day. You could then buy CC in exactly 28 days.

This game is sweet on my iPhone, but I always thought that it would be better with an actual controller. And that price… makes it a must buy! Can’t wait!

I hear that for every copy of Critter Crunch sold in Canada, Capy is gonna vomit on Sony Canada HQ in Toronto in demand of a Canadian PSN Video Store. And other ridiculous things I’m prepared to promise on their behalf.

In-game XMB Music? And if not would it be possible to patch it later?

Thanks!

DAY ONE PURCHASE FROM ME SIRS!

Tried it on my girlfriend’s iphone and felt the screen was too small and i couldn’t get enough control which is when i was thinking “hey, a surefire button press on the ps3 would do the trick” and sure enough i’ll be able to enjoy it soon enough.

and for under 10 dollars, what is this a yard sale!?
