So is this the new game we are talking about? If so that's great news!

I wish more developers weren't scared of pricing their games less than 60 dollars. There is this dumb stigma that having a lower launch price means you are less of a game etc. If The Order was priced at 30 or 40 dollars, I feel the reception would have been much better on it. The sting would be much less for people. Because the game is really good, but nobody was happy with spending 60 dollars on a game that takes all of 10 hours to FULLY complete the entire trophy list and have nothing else to do. There is nothing wrong with pricing yourself accordingly to your content.

They did this with Into the Nexus though, and it was really short on content compared to other entries like A Crack in Time. Still loved it. Got the Plat. Way, way too short.

They did this with Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time and Puppeteer as well. Those two were not short on content.

Oh wow, that's surprising.

If that's true, then it'll probably be £29.99 in UK price.

I'll be shocked. This is one of the biggest upcomign PS4 games, so I would've expected it to be another $60 (£40) release...

This is off topic, but why is it that games account for the difference between the dollar and the pound, but consoles don't? I believe PS4 was 400 pounds in the UK at release and 400 USD here.

Probably tariffs. If there aren't parts made in the UK or any assembly in the UK the tariffs generally go up considerably.

Just look at this interesting interview of the insane cost of PS4 in Brazil due to import laws. 63% of the cost is taxes alone. They're considering building some PS4's in Brazil to bring cost down.
