Are Single Player Only Games Overpriced?

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've more than likely noticed that multiplayer only titles usually sale for the discount price of $30-$40. Games that provide months, sometimes even years of gameplay, (Warhawk) sale for half the price. Meanwhile, games that provide a mere 8-10 hours of gameplay, with no multiplayer, continue to sale for $60. Is it not fair that single player only games sale at a discount price as well? (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Culture, Gears of War 2, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, PS3, Wanted, Warhawk, Xbox 360)

I was thinking of this actually, it still costs alot to make just for single player games, so I say no.

some but not all... some games are made with a very low budget and still have a $60 price tag

Im sorry but single player means more to me than multiplayer....ill buy a good single player only game all day (adventure, rpg's)....i guess im old school. For shooters...yeah u need mp too.

better question....
why are bad games $60?

That is a better question.
Some SP games can justify their price tags (espically those with tricky trophies) but when crap games are being given a £50 price tag it makes you wonder WTF.

depends if the multiplayer is good.. a lot of games have tacked on multiplayer that no one plays - i rather people invest more energy into a good sp game then compromise and make bothe sp and mp components subpar
