Duke Nukem 3D (DOS) Price Drop

The response to the XBLA release of Duke Nukem 3D has been quite spectacular - far greater than we had thought it would be. In celebration of this new release, we have decided to drop the price of the PC original. We still sell the good old classic PC version of Duke Nukem 3D, and effective immediately, we have dropped the price.

The purchase price for Duke Nukem 3D for the PC is now $10 (down from the previous $19.95). This is the Atomic Edition v1.5, which we have been selling since late 1996. If you have never checked out the original version, you can do so for a cheaper price!

A few caveats about that - this is the DOS original, and if you have Windows XP (or Vista), you can run into a few problems with running old DOS games there. There are a few third party programs available which can assist in this matter.

First is DOSBox, a program that will let you play most every DOS game better on XP/Vista. Not only can that help with the original Duke3D, it can help you run most any of our older legacy titles.

The other option is JFDuke3D. A few years back, we released the source code for Duke Nukem 3D, and Jonathan Fowler created a Windows version of the PC original. You need the Atomic Edition to run JFDuke, but it is worth it if you have problems running the DOS original.

So if you have never checked out the original Duke Nukem 3D on your computer, you can do so now at a cheaper price! Order today!
