i think its fine everyone always wants something to complain about

False. Blizzard likes to furnicates in the back its customers. This price tag is outrageous, just like the launch of this garbage of a game.

Well, they can price it as high (or as low) as they want, but as a consumer, I'll make my own judgement on how much each release is worth, how much I'm willing to pay for it, and so I simply vote with my wallet.

If Diablo 3 seems too expensive for me right now, I'll just wait till it's cheaper sometime down the line, if I'm still interested in the game by then.

I'm not someone who's 'into' Diablo, simply cause I've never played it and it doesn't really seem all that appealing to me. Maybe I would love it, maybe not. I simply don't know.
Obviously, releasing it at 50-60 euro does very very little to convince me to go pick it up and give it a try, while at 30 euro I probably would have given it a chance, considering the positive comments I've read about it on fora and websites these days. So in that regard, being a bit of a non-mainstream genre, and being a port of a 2 year old game, it might have been 'wiser' to release it a bit cheaper.

But like I said, they can price it whatever they want, and I'll make a judgement and I'll vote with my wallet.

I got the ps4 ultimate evil ed for $49.99 from best buy's website when I preordered it over a year ago. I can live with that cost.

How is it outrageous? I've never played the game before and I picked up the PS4 version today. I got the base game, and the expansion pack for $60. The expansion pack alone is 30ish, and I believe the normal game is now down to 30. So if anything, it's what you'd pay to play the PC version as well.

How is it outrageous? Your basically getting two games for the price of one.

Man i still haven't fired my copy up, probably this weekend.

oh and i think your a sad little man who thinks people shouldn't have an opinion and just accept any greedy tactics by greedy companies. i wouldn't be surprised if you were a company plant.

smellslikeralph1376d ago (Edited 1376d ago )

I find ALL games in general priced to high period. I have not played Diablo III or reaper of souls so to me its a new game thus the $60.00 price tag.

Pisque1376d ago

Rofl it's only a friggin expansion pack with new skins and SOME new stuffs. You seem like an intelligent person, how can you defend such a bs marketing practice that forces you to pay even more for the same sheet?

CorndogBurglar1376d ago (Edited 1376d ago )

I think you're misled.

The expansion is a whole other chapter in story mode; which equals many hours of new gameplay, a new character (not just a new skin, a whole new character with all new attacks and everything), new items, enemies, game modes, legendary items...

THere's more, but I think you get the point. Its not just some "new skins and stuff".

Considering the PC expansion is still going for $30 in stores, I think this is a fair price for the full Diablo 3 game, plus the expansion.

But I love Diablo and have been playing it since the original, so there you go.

Baka-akaB1376d ago (Edited 1376d ago )

the expansion is literally a new diablo game in term of contents , so you dunno what you are saying . The ps4 and xb1 customers its customers most likely dont have the original diablo 3 on ps3/360 ... wich was a nice port , but still gimped in comparison.

The only thing that held me back are the servers being obviously separate from pc . And my friends fans of the game are on pc , so no dice , ill just get the pc expansion someday

Volkama1375d ago

The expansion is nowhere close to a full game in terms of content.

It is 1 full act, 1 character class, a few minor bits and pieces (new skills and items), and some low-budget modes that let you recycle that same content to your heart's content.

It's a decent enough expansion, but it is not close to a full game in it's own right.

And more direct to the topic, if you ignore the fact that all console games are over-priced in general then D3 is relatively OK. That £59.99 gets you everything. There are no micro-transactions, no DLC, no tail you can keep investing in. £59.99 all-in.

It is too expensive, but only in the same way that all console retail game prices are too expensive.

SCW19821376d ago

Funny you say this because games are cheaper than they have ever been in the business. I remember buying banjo Kazooie for 70 bucks when it launched on the N64. People these days act so self entitled it's ridiculous.

Seafort1376d ago

You sure about that?

Ubisoft and EA are charging £50/$83 for all their new AAA games now on PC.

For UK/EU they've never been more expensive.

I don't buy them at that price but that's what they sell them for on steam, origin and ubisoft store.

4logpc1376d ago

There should be an upgrade price on current gen as well I will admit. If you already have D3 there should be a way to get the game for $40 on current gen and not just last gen.

That being said, the amount of playtime you will get for $60 is still way above and beyond 90% of games.

ShaqSoda1376d ago

I didn't have a problem buying it for $60. I never played it in my life, and I'm sure there's additional added content and patches from the previous edition.

hello121376d ago

Its got good reviews the game. So the pricing might not be that bad. Worst games have released at the same price.
