I'm pretty sure it is priced at 40$ because there are many awesome games coming out this fall and MS wants gamers to afford these games.

Do you remember 2K sports pricing last generation?
Maybe they just want you to play this game and are not looking to break your bank so you will experience it. I was on the fence about Banjo but now (if this article is true) I will most likely pick it up.

Both are headed towards flopsville,hence the Bargain Bin price out the Gate

Noel Sulik3780d ago

Can you please explain why they are headed towards "flopsville".
Viva Pinata 1 was pretty awesome and the 2nd one looks like a big upgrade to that which is good. Also Banjo Kazooie look unique and it will sell well. Previews for both games are awesomely positive.

Sony did something similar with Patapon (though it really isn't a kid's game), and even Disgaea 3 is coming out at $49.99. Hopefully more and more games will be released at appropriate price points.

Hopefully as the price of game development gradually falls, we would see more affordable games coming out for both systems.

How good is that game Patapon?my cousin is bugging me to buy the game for him.

TheColbertinator3780d ago

@green Patapon is a great deal for 20 bucks.It is a good game.

green3780d ago

Thanks for the info.Well i guess my cousin has you to thank because i will be getting the game for him ASAP..

Skadoosh3780d ago

Great brand new games at a cheap price? Can't say anything bad about that. :)

green3780d ago

I was only going to buy Banjo N&B but if this price is accurate then i might as well get both.

Skadoosh3780d ago

You ever play the first Viva? Pretty damn addicting. I bought it for my gf but I probably played it more. :p

green3780d ago

I have had some hands on time with Viva Pinata and it was really addictive but Banjo nuts and bolts looks like an even better game, so decided to get that instead.

Another thing is that there are to many games coming out from august till the end of the year, so decided to suspend the purchase of some games to spring 2009.Fallout 3 and Viva 2 fell into that both while Gears2,Infinite Undiscovery Too Human, Fable 2,banjo 3,Left 4 Dead and Last remnant would get my money this year.

But as i said, if this rumor is true, then i will add Viva 2 to my 08 list.

HAZ33780d ago (Edited 3780d ago )

I'll be getting Too Human, Infinite Undiscovery, Viva Pinata 2, Fable 2 Last Remnant, Fallout 3, Gears of War 2 and Banjo Kazooie.
