In a weird turn of events, platform puzzler Trine will costs twice as much on PC as it will on PSN, costing $40 instead of $20. Bizarrely, developer Frozenbyte had no clue about the price difference, yet is still defending the decision to price one version considerably more than the other.

"Trine is far from a game created by a solo hero developer (we have over 20 employees and Trine has contributions from a double amount of people)," explains one dev on the company's forums. "We are very confident that we can deliver a full retail experience with Trine (hence PC version is sold in retail also for approx 35 to 40 eur/usd!).

"As for the PSN price, our publisher and Sony sets it. Heck, even I don't know it ... I just don't find it fair to compare us to games which have started at similar or higher pricepoints. It's very obvious Trine will eventually cost less, so I guess I just wanted to say that if the price hurts more than waiting, then that's the option."

As well as the $40 retail version, Trine is currently available for pre-order on Steam for $30. The boxed copy is due to ship some time this Summer, while the downloadable version should be available between July 3 and July 10. Somehow I can't see this move proving popular with PC gamers.

[Update: Southpeak sent us an email to say that the official price point for the PC version of Trine is $29.99. The publisher hasn't said much about the game since it was named as a publisher, but that is their official stance on the story.]

The Wolf Among Us isn't crying wolf with this accolades trailer

The first season of The Wolf Among Us may be over, but there's still one more trailer to indulge in. The quotes included in Episode 5's accolades trailer are technically only about Cry Wolf, but they seem pretty universal as far as the season goes. Tour de force? Genuinely moving? One hell of a ride? Yeah, that sounds like The Wolf Among Us in a nutshell.more
