Big Fish Games today announced a new pricing structure for its downloadable games that gives Game Club members a discount on Collector’s Edition games while raising the price of standard edition games for non-members.
Under the old pricing, standard editions of games cost $6.99 and Collector’s Editions – which typically contain extras like desktop wallpapers, soundtracks, bonus chapters and a built-in strategy guide – sold for $19.95. The new price model introduces a two-tiered system where members of Big Fish Games’ Game Club pay less.
The complete run-down of the new pricing model is as follows:
- $6.99 for Game Club members
- $9.99 for non-members
- $13.99 for Game Club members
- $19.95 for non-members
- $2.99 for Game Club members only (not offered to non-members)
It costs $6.99 per month to subscribe to the Game Club, which also gives members access to a free game credit per month, live chat support, and a monthly punch card to earn additional free games.
If you were already a member of the Game Club before, then you’ll actually save a bit of money on Collector’s Editions. Non-members, however, will now find themselves paying the same for Collector’s Editions and $3 more for download games.
