Jet Set Radio HD gets a price “tag” and release dates!

YES!! @#$*ing finally!

Today, the Sega blogs have finally given us both the long-awaited release dates and price for Jet Set Radio HD. This digitally distributed darling will arrive on September 18th for PSN and the 19th for LIVE and Steam. Better news for those with Playstation Plus, you’ll be getting it a week early on September 11th. As promised, all 3 dates are technically still “summer” (although, I don’t know a single kid who won’t be in school by then). Those waiting for the Vita version will have to wait just a little bit longer as it arrives on October 16th. All versions will arrive at a super-cheap price of $9.99 (I’d have totally paid double that, but don’t tell Sega). No word yet on the iOS and mobile versions. Press release details at the comment link.

The day is finally here – the final final date announcement of Jet Set Radio! We have initiated this pirate broadcast to announce the release dates and pricing for Jet Set Radio!

=== Xbox LIVE Arcade and PC gamers (via Steam) will be able to purchase Jet Set Radio on September 19 for 800 Microsoft Points / $9.99 / £5.99 / €6.49.

    Since I just became interested in JSR the wait isn’t as painful as waiting for S4EP2. I’ll get ikaruga then get the points back for JSRHD through XBLR/Bing.

    Finally, at long last. Any sign of the extra two tracks that were missed out of the original release? Rumour is that it’s the reason Sega delayed it to get them.

      What I don’t get is why they couldn’t license Yappie Feet from David Seoul when several other songs from the “Sparkling Music” album are included?

    • Hitrax says:

      The only thing I can imagine why is because probably one of the artists of that particular track wasn’t happy with it for some reason even though David Soul, the main guy behind that track, was happy with it.

    Works out well for me, as I’m as busy as I’ve ever been the next few weeks.

  4. crippenstation says:

    OK, PS Plus users have to get it on the 11th anniversary of you-know-what?!?

  5. About time. But September? Better late than never I guess.

    Now what about NiGHTS HD? I hope it comes out before the end of this year.

    I would complain about Sept, but I already predicted they’d pull this crap again. Want game now, the hype machine for it has dwindled to a corpse.

    Yeah I really don’t understand it….news was all over the place when they announced the game….why they haven’t released it near that point when the hype was practically skyrocketing is beyond me.

    They always do this.
