A post on Joystiq reveals that the game will come at a price of $9.99 (800 Microsoft points) and will land on the Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network April 5 Europe and in the same week for North America. However more important news to those with Playstation Network Plus subscriptions, you will get it free of charge.
If you are not a subscriber to PSN Plus, Joystiq say you may just be able to sneak in and get the game for free if you sign up before March 25 so all is not lost here, but there will be no such bonus for already paying customers of Xbox Live sadly.
The decision to give PSN Plus members the game free could be a plan to gain more interest from gamers in signing up to it, although we think many Xbox Live gamers will feel hard done by.
Will you buy Red Faction Battlegrounds?
