Killer Instinct at Launch for only $20?!?!?

So this is some interesting news coming from the development team behind Killer Instinct. At Gamescon 2013, the pricing model was recently revealed in an interview. And it seems that the prices for KI is a bit…surprising to say the least.

So here’s what the pricing will look like: $20 will get you the full title, which includes all 8 characters (with unlockable color palettes and secrets), 8 stages, and all modes (Story, Tutorial, Training, and Online). If you pay $40, you get the full title with exclusive character skins (which includes redesigned Killer Instinct 1 skins for the classic characters), accessories for the characters, and a port of the original Killer Instinct game for X-Box One.

Now honestly, having a full title at launch for $20…that’s pretty much unheard of in the gaming world. And considering that the game starts off with only 6 characters on launch (Jago, Glacius, Sabrewulf, and the newly revealed Chief Thunder plus 2 unrevealed characters) and 2 more coming soon after, it seems to be a recipe for disaster. However, from what was revealed in the interview, Killer Instinct will have a lot more coming to it in the future.

Question is: will Killer Instinct fans – or XBOX One fans in general – want to wait that long for the awesome stuff to be released?
