Forbes has a well written, easy to read article about why games cost so much and where the money goes. Nice read if you would like to have an idea of where your money goes, however, if you would like to keep this a mystery, best stop reading here.
Epic is rolling out free content for Live users. Why does Genji cost $60??
Because all newly released games cost $60 or more when they are released. Another dumb article by Juevani.
but im sure games are cheaper in NZ i payed $85 for the collectors edition, thats about $42.50 american i think, there is only a few games over the $100 mark here, $50 american, and viva LOL cost me $59 NZ! cheap az! most games are cheaper then what i payed for ps2 games!
Why doesn't this guy get band with his 4 accounts and all the spaming he does. Giving an opinion is one thing but this guy's out of hand with malace in his heart.
Nice question BUT Why does the PS3 cost 600 dollars? Because Sony needs to push it's overpriced BluRay format. The hardware does about the same as the 360 does, so no reason to pay 33% extra for the game console Why do games that are better on the 360, cost equal the amount of money on the PS3 while that version is inferior? COD3? Rainbow Six?
wow, your a spin machine all in one
Ridiculous article!!!! Anyone with a hole in their arse knows things can be bought far far cheaper than the RRP on ANY game!!! give it a rest Juevani, your becoming rather tiresome!
Juevani is right at finding this. It's not saying that Gears is a dumb game it's saying that becuase of the price of production you need to sell it at that price and sell about 500k + units before you even start getting a profit of maybe $1 for each unit after. As far as him finding the negitive articals right back at you! Just look at the PS3 forum out of 10 articals 8 (most of the time more) articals are stating how much it sucks and yes you all put them in there. He's just leveling out the playing ground. Hipocrites (yeah spelled wrong I know) just read the artical if you don't like it to bad it's posted up here now. If you don't want to read it don't post on it.
Mark Rein said that they are a small company, thats why.
It is hard for somebody to lose bubbles when they have multiple accounts... for instance: Juevani... Juevani1... Juevani2... and I am pretty sure Juevani3. I see that he has finally had ONE post turned into what it is: trash.
Sweeet. Juevani has only one bubble... on three accounts. It is like three bubbles. Ridiculous.
of many users on this site, I also agree that this article is terrible. I remember spending $80 on Segas Shining in the Darkness, and $90 on Phantasy Star 4, and that was 15 years ago. Most people on this site are too young to remember either of those games. So $60 is nothing to pay. If you think it is too much, then you probably still live off your mom and dads income, and you're just pissed that they won't buy you more games. Quit being a baby.
I'm paying less for xbox 360 games then xbox 1 games. Xbox 1 games used to cost me $79.99 canadian. Now they are from $49.99 to $69.99. With games like PDZ, PGR3, Kameo now $34.99
He wasn't pointing out one game. He used GOW so you all would read. Besides the title, the article doesn't single out a single game. It's about all new releases in general.
But somebody made it $60, either way, I would have paid $100 for Gears anyday. I havent taken it out of my 360 since emergence day!! Its that fun!
games doesn't deserve more than 20 bucks,if it wasn't because of the high cost of games there would be no piracy at all..
I remember going to Sears for my 8th birthday and my mom paying $60 for ShadowGate an Atari 2600 game or was it for the NES hhuuuuuummmmmmmmmmmm!
Juevani you need a hobby really. Why does Ps3 cost 600$? Why do you talk so much? Who the f^ck keeps posting your findings? when i Post Worthwhile info it don't get put up? Why Genji Was ever Made? Why is Motorstorm more hyped than Lair? Why can Other BLURAY Players work decent? Why is 360 The sh1t? Why Doctors order us to play more Gears to let off steam? Why is this site Run by Playstaion Fanboys behind the scenes? Why the hell a Dude with One Bubble is posting any info? What the Fu(k am i supposed to sound like Jadakiss?
Cant even make a decent comment on your own article, thats really sad.
anybody remember the prices of N64 games back when the N64 came out!! now i'll gladly pay 60 for these games instead of the 74 to 89 for those games!!
It costs game developers the most money to publish a game for the PS3, since they're paying the console fees AND the Blu-Ray. Way to nickle and dime everyone SOny!
But I think Sony really doesn't mind it because they are a business. So getting an extra liscensing fee off of Blu Ray is good income wise for them.
Where I am, in local currency, 360 games are on average $69, Wii $89 and PS3 $99. So we're really not complaining about the price of 360 games.
