EA details getting original Alice for PS3, Xbox 360


Earlier this week, American McGee told the world that folks who purchased Alice: Madness Returns for consoles would get a copy of the original Alice. When we asked Electronic Arts for confirmation, we were told "We have no new news to report for Alice: Madness Returns."

That was two days ago. Today, EA has confirmed and detailed the promotion. Sigh.

So here's the deal: folks who buy Alice: Madness Returns for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will get a one-time-use "Online Pass" code. This will give them access to the original American McGee's Alice, available for the first time on consoles. If you want to purchase the game separately (if you don't buy Madness Returns or buy it used, for instance), it'll run you $9.99 for PS3 or 800 MS Points for 360.

Interestingly, there's no mention of this promotion for PC users. The game isn't available right now through any reasonable or legal means. Example: you can buy a new copy on Amazon for $500, or a used copy for $60. We've reached out to EA to see what, if any, plans they have for PC users when it comes to getting the original Alice at a reasonable rate.
