Resident Evil: Revelations is $50 due to larger storage

Look, I have no doubt that Resident Evil: Revelations will be a good game, but $50 for a 3DS title? Are we paying $10 for an erasable save spot? Kidding! Kind of. 

Our recent preview tells us that Revelations is huge, has full voice acting, Circle Pad support and a script by Dai Sato, but it's still a 3DS game, erasable save space or no. So why the price hike? The game requires a 4GB cartridge to hold all of that, says Capcom.

"Resident Evil Revelations is an all new Resident Evil title with over 20 hours of gameplay, and cutscenes beautifully rendered in fear-inducing 3D," a Capcom spokesperson told Kotaku. "A true console experience on a handheld device, Resident Evil Revelations is an epic title that offers both a single-player campaign for that classic survival horror gaming experience, and an additional RAID mode that can be played cooperatively or single player. To handle all of that data Resident Evil Revelations requires a 4GB cartridge, resulting in a higher price point."

Ow. At least they didn't say that it's $10 better than other 3DS titles.

How do you feel about having to shell out an extra $10 for the increased storage requirement of Revelations? Are you still going to buy it?
