Play.com are taking preorders for PS3 titles at £49.99. This is £10 more then the Xbox 360 and Wii game prices
Some places sell them for £40!
It really looks silly when you agree with your own posts...you aren't fooling anyone.
You MS fanboy!
Play.com is one of the cheapest online games store,find me a site that will be cheaper
I live in the UK and i see them at like £40, in fact i see them in sales for £30 very rarely!
No ps3 game costs £30, not even £40. I also live in the Uk and wherever i look, its the same everywhere for PS3 games. £50/£60. But theres one thing we should all take into account, if i remember rightly, most games that are put up for pre-order are put up for a higher price to save the disappointment of them going up. If they had put them at the lower price of £40, and they then go up to £50, peopl aint gonna be happy. So put them at £50 and they can only go down. So maybe it will be the same for the PS3
But, if that is not the case and the play.com price is right, then the prices in store will be around £60, which is a bit too mcuh for a game. £50 is bad enough.
www.gameplay.co.uk is very cheap aswell
The article says that Play.com are to release the ps3 games for £10 more than 360 games within it's own site. nowhere is it suggeting a price comparison with other retailers.
Can you go ahead and use your last bubble please?
Any way this is what we expected. As a 360 owner I wont have a gamer dry spell like most hard core PS3 whenthe shortage hits. And people will be selling PS3 in june or july 2007 I'll get mine then. And if the games are not cheap then so be it only buy the games you want and it wont be a problem. And yes the High price of the PS3 sucks bad but fi you want it you will pay thats why I wait to see whst happens.
I remember when Resident Evil 2 first came out on the PS1 and it was sold at £50. So this is not a completely surprising price point.
Still at the current rate of conversion that is almost $94 a game, fairly pricey.
If they're £50 on play, chances are the high street retailers will sell them for £60. Expensive, but hardly unexpected.
Whoa....I guess the European fans can't catch a break from Sony these days, but I don't live in the UK so maybe I'm wrong and PS3 games will be cheaper in other stores, like the Rock said. In any case I'm sure Sonyfanboys don't care how much the games cost, so its not a big deal, right? It's funny because a Sonyfanboy was just telling me how Sony in his words "overdelivers"....ye ah, he was right, Ken did say it would be expensive, and Sony definitely "overdelivered" on that promise.
yea but most sony fanboys are between 11 - 18 and most cannot afford £60 per game.
For f**k sakes, seeing an ERP at a store does not make the price confirmed. The shops have to put a price on their products before launch for people who preorder. The shops remember that 360 games cost £50 at launch. They estimate £50 for the PS3 games. It's not bloody rocket science, whoever keeps posting these articles saying "HEY PS3 GAMES PRICED AT £50 ON AMAZON! PRICE CONFIRMED!", please just Stop.
lol. feel better now? :P
very much so, thanks.
Ok this is very bad mis-informed news here.
To buy an Xbox360 game in the UK is £49.99 from a game shop...so how in the greek bugery is the PS3 anymore exspensive?.
It's the same price as a 360 game you buy in any UK game shop...UNLESS you order your 360 games from gameplay.co.uk that does them for £39.99
PLEASE next time could we have the news posted in a non-biased way thankyou.
Not being libertys but most of you are american. So dont act like your experts on UK game pricing
I live in London and this article is BULL
New xbox 360 games ARE 50. They are not 10 cheaper than PS3 game pricing which is ALSO 50. And considering ps3 games are on the superior bluray disc and not dvd, this is a GREAT deal
i hope the moderators change that complete lie thats written in the news summary
we dont want the ps3 in britain.since its been delayed.stuff you sony considering you dont respect europe.so why dont you keep that ps3 in america and japan.stay out of britain sony.
speak on behalf of uk why don't you
by the way, if you were truely 'british', you wouldn't kave called our country Britain. No one here says that. They say England, or scotland or maybe UK. No one below 60 years old says Britain
And yeah, loads of people here want the ps3. Playstation is the mainstay console here, so expect the ps3 to have alot of supporters. Because Playstation IS a massively popular brand
You need to get off your high horse there. There's no such thing as being "truly British", that's just elitist crap. And Britain is a perfectly acceptable name for the British Isles, only the "British Empire" has become redundant.
On the one hand, you're putting him down for "speaking on behalf of the UK", then you go on to say what everyone should call the country.
On the other hand, Shadow is right bill, you can't say nobody in Britain wants the PS3. I know a few people do, there will always be a following over here. But I don't have to like it.
