Following the recent news that Jonathan Blow's hugely successful Xbox 360 exclusive Braid is now finally coming to PC, there was unhinged murmuring from lots of PC gamers that the price tag of $20 was a little too steep.

Jonathan has now posted on his Braid blog explaining that he has decided to set the price down to $15. Describing exactly why he chose $20 initially, Blow says:

I just looked at some comparable games on the PC and saw how much they were charging. Crayon Physics Deluxe, World of Goo, and Aquaria, among many others, are all priced at $20. It seemed reasonable not to charge less for Braid than for those games.

He then goes on to say that he 'would rather have people talking about the game itself, what they like and dislike about it' than having people complaining about the price.
