Apparently nobody seen what i did there.

Jingeridit897d ago

I did. 16 days passed April Fool's Day. I agree, it's shocking to think that Sony and EA are saying that £39.99 is a 'deal'. That's the price it should of been at launch. Disgusting.

Razmossis897d ago

39.99 is full price!
The last time I paid more than 40 pound for a game it was Black Ops 1, and that was 44.99

How are they saying this is a deal ?

Rockefellow896d ago

It's not that nobody SAW what you did; it's the fact that your comment was just playing off a dumb, tired argument that's been beaten into the damned ground.

We get it. Digital prices for PSN games are egregiously priced. I have this neat little trick I do to really stick it to 'em and avoid the issue altogether, though-- don't buy them! Bam.

£39.99 is still too much after all this time. Whilst I'm not suggesting they give these away for free, a more reasonable price would be better suited imo.

If I was in charge these would be in the region of £14.99. I guess I would be fired pretty sharpish.

Darklordnick897d ago

£25 ish and i would be tempted ...

dodgemoose897d ago (Edited 897d ago )

£14.99 isn't a reasonable price to them. Something in the region of £30 would be more sensible.

hkgamer897d ago

lol. thats too much at this moment in time. think £30 would have been a good price to tempt me.
im a sucker for discounted games and i would get both if it was priced right. i dont even play fps and i would have got it.

Neonridr897d ago

holy $hit.. $99.95 was the starting price? That's absolutely outrageous.

Volkama897d ago (Edited 897d ago )

Kinda defeats the point of such a low price for the console doesn't it?

I am not convinced that the industry has the right idea on game pricing at all. Gotta wonder, if the game was a 3rd of the price would they sell at least 3x as many copies?

You'd hope in these times of experimental pricing models somebody will try "cheaper" somewhen :)

Neonridr897d ago

It's just ridiculous that pricing is that high over in Europe. I mean a brand new game in America is $59.99 ($64.99 in Canada). So the "sale" price is still $10 than what you would pay retail for a brand new copy here in North America. That's just insulting.

Volkama897d ago

It is, but we've always had that over here. It's not new.

The digital stores on both new consoles do hammer that price home though, as it's full-on no discount in-your-face ripoff. Not even the "EA/Activision premium" get's masked at all (they both typically charge more than the platform holder RRP for games).

Neonridr897d ago

I guess if you were going to go digital you would just set up a NA PSN account to make your purchases. Save a heck of a lot of money that way..

hkgamer897d ago

@neonridr

i think average wage in eu is a lot higher.

uk prices is just a rip off though.
digital prices are at full rrp, but retail games are normally 10-15% lower. nothing in uk sells at rrp which makes it kinda pointless

Exactly and this is why I purchase games from the American store for $60.

ziggurcat897d ago

That's not the standard edition.

The standard edition is regular 69 price...

Clown_Syndr0me897d ago

Now £39.99? I paid that price for BF4 3 months ago, a disc copy too so I could always sell it on if I wanted to.

As for NFS Rivals, it sells for £20 second hand on disc. Why would anyone pay double the price for a digital copy?

These aren't deals at all, they're rip-offs.

esemce897d ago

Cus it's an EA masterpiece that you will want to keep on your hdd and play forever.

For about £40 I bought BF4 and premium for the PC. These £55 now £40 prices are a discrace and some fools wanted a digital only system.

If it can't compare to steam then forget it.

Clown_Syndr0me897d ago

Exactly!
Some fools have actually gone Digital only this gen...its idiots like that causing this problem. Why lower the prices if people are paying them?

I know not everyone likes to sell on their games, but for those that do going digital is never going to happen unless the prices really are very low.
