Send Them to Arkham!

The Batman: Arkham Asylum sale that I discussed about yesterday was truly a great deal but I just noticed something... Why did Microsoft lie about the game's original price?

Is it truly 75% off?

The regular price of the game is $49.95 but the description above specified that the new price was reduced from $59.99. All that hard work between managing sales for the X-Box 360 and the Personal Computer has caused some sort of altered reality for the marketing people over at Microsoft where they couldn't tell anymore if they were talking about the regular console pricing or the PC pricing standard. Apparently, the higher than usual original price above is just a misprint because 75% of $49.99 is $12.49, so Microsoft may not have to worry about sending the entire marketing team to an insane asylum just yet.
