There’s been a huge degree of fascination with indie game No Man’s Sky since it stole the show at E3 2014. The game promises seamless exploration of a massive procedurally generated galaxy filled with unique planets, weird and wonderful plants and animals, and space-faring civilisations. Players will explore the universe, harvest resources, upgrade their space ships, and head toward the center of the galaxy where a mystery reportedly awaits discovery. The game is officially launching in June in PS4 and PC.
Fans have hotly debated what price point the game should be released at, and a mistake on the PlayStation blog has now thrown gasoline on that fire. No Man’s Sky appeared in the pre-order list for a short time with a price of $59.99 and the annotation “Out 3/3,” prompting speculation that pre-orders may open tomorrow and $59.99 may be the actual release price. This rumour has put many fans on edge, as they expected a game from a small independent studio to have indie pricing. Others are arguing that No Man’s Sky is a huge game that is worth a AAA price tag, while some are now asking for some more convincing before they’ll agree that it’s worth $60.
