The recently release Onrush has been discounted to $39.99 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Not surprising at all. Those arcade racers don't sell anymore. It's more about simulation. And no, I don't say Horizon 4 is arcade in that sense, but this jumping through fireballs arcade racing is no longer a big deal.
It lacks content and the team racing is an odd choice. Arcade racers still have their place. Trackmania Turbo sold pretty well and the Forza Horizon games are outselling the sim Forza games because of their arcade influences. If not, games like Need For Speed wouldn't still sell really well despite suffering a steep decline in quality in recent years. This game was done on a lower budget than Motorstorm as well. Arcade racers may just need to adjust their price similarly to Ratchet & Clank which worked out really well for that game.
40 bucks.....and before long it will be half that. Who the hell asked for a team-based racer anyhow? No finish line, no incentive to play IMO. I'll wait until it's $10 then I'll give it a go, maybe.
It's a shame because I played the beta and mechanically it was quite good, but winning and losing felt random and unrewarding.
