Prototype on the cheap on Steam: $40

Our absolutely massive review of Prototype featured the views of three of our editors, and came with a bonus music video. The end result? A respectable score of 7.5 out of 10. That means that we feel it’s a solid game. And it is. It was solid enough for the original asking price of $59.99, and so it’s definitely worth the limited-time price of $40.

The good folks at Steam have dropped the price of Activision’s latest action game by 20 percent, letting you nab it for $40. This price is good through August 13th, or about a week. Not bad for such a new game. I guess that this is one of the better parts of being a PC gamer — you get things for cheaper and see more sales. I think it’ll be awhile before we see price drops on the console version.

Have any of you tried the PC version? If so, how does it compare to the console one?
