Ms. 'Splosion Man won't make wallets 'splode, priced at $10


It looks like Ms. 'Splosion Man will buck the fifteen buck trend on Xbox Live Arcade. Just like her significant other, Ms. 'Splosion Man will be priced at an oh-so-reasonable 800 MS Points ($10). The 'sploderific sequel is set to land on Xbox Live on July 13. A PC version has also been rumored, though not confirmed.

Humanity's Destruction Priced At 800 Microsoft Points
Ms. Splosion Man's Accidental Creation Slated for July 13th, 2011

July 5th, 2011 - Austin, TX - The value of all life on Earth was originally placed at almost triple the amount of Microsoft points, but a surprise ruling from Twisted Pixel today cited a declining economy and a general disappointment in humanity as the root for assuring its destruction at the incredible price of 800 Microsoft Points. Minutes after Big Science Labs announced the capture of rogue experiment Splosion Man, all communications cut out. Unconfirmed reports of a "Pink Terror" led many to speculate on the existence of a "Ms. Splosion Man" - a second catastrophic experiment set to splode her revenge out from the laboratories of Big Science and into the world.

Humanity's last brush with the apocalypse occurred almost one year ago, during the Great Meatening, a day remembered less for the terrible loss of many a scientist than for the vast flooding of delicious meat that rained down from the sky. Here now again, all of humanity rests on the razor's edge - Big Science encourages all citizens to resist the sizzle of fresh tenderloin and mass destruction on July 13th, no matter the phenomenal value.

Ms. Splosion Man features bigger levels, pumped-up bosses, overhauled networking, ghost replays, and countless other improvements in a fifty-level single player campaign and separate fifty-level multiplayer campaign. Pick up Ms. Splosion Man for 800 Microsoft Points on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace July 13th here.
