The ones that used to be in the cities for less were not scaling. For less, they were locked at 60% mount speed. The ones that are in place now will autoscale. Autoscaling options did indeed used to be in the main store - at a price of 800 credits, no plat option.So the non-scaling ones have been removed. The scaling ones now available are MUUUUCH cheaper than the previous credit only options.
Was this a change for the sake of Prime?
No. I had to do a not minor amount of work to have it work with Live, because it was something that we wanted to do for Live. If all I wanted to do was do it for Prime, it would have been much easier.
If so, why is this affecting Live?
This is a kind of layered question. The first layer is an implication that changes for Prime should not affect Live. We did not promise that. The games share a code base. They WILL affect each other in various ways.Second is that Live has always been a living game, and things have often changed for various reasons in the past. This was a case of something that felt like a better system (and it is a chance to get what used to be an 800-credit option for 25 plat).
