Record of Agarest War will be one of the most expensive games on the Playstation Store when it launches this Thursday on the Playstation 3.
$44.99! Wow, I wonder how many will buy that... Suppose it saves you heading to the store.
What I don't get is, is that wouldn't this type of Japanese game sell better on the PS3? Why go for a PSN release... unless of course the XBLA can not hold such large files (im sorry, I don't recall the file size limit)
@sinncross: huh ? It IS a PS3 game... maybe i misunderstood your intention, but what are you actually suggesting?
Well this game looks pretty interesting (The whole soul breeding system) but 45$? I suppose it's fair I was ultimately hoping it would be 20$ so I could just buy a pre-paid PSN card as I can't use my credit card online. Someday...but when I have 50$ saved I'm more likely to buy a new game rather than a 50$ pre-paid card to get a PSN game.
Since it's a full-on PS3 game I don't see a problem with them charging 45 dollars. It saves the cost of packaging and whatnot. You can buy DD PSP games on PSN for their full 40 dollar price even if you don't get the packaging. No doubt it's a few more dollars than people seek to spend for a game on the PS Store, it's not completely unreasonable considering the 360 version will most likely be about 60 dollars. Personally, I'd rather have the game on a physical disc, but I'm more comfortable with RPGs played with the DS3 controller rather than the 360's FPS-based controller. I don't know, I just find it uncomfortable as a longtime PS gamer since the 90s. If it's a good game, I don't have a problem paying a reduced price. That said, again, I'd rather have the physical disc to play the game.
I know its for the PS3 :) I said 'Why go for a PSN release' in suggesting why there was not a disc based release for a game like this, when it could potentially sell better on the PS3 then the 360, which has a disc based release. Sorry about the confusion :)
That reminds me i have to go take a dump.
I've had the euro version since last year. It's an alright game, it's pretty linear and the graphics could be done on the psp but jrpg/srpg fans will most likely enjoy it.
Yes they would like it but those same people already imported the UK version. These same people are boycotting this game in the US since it is digital only on PS3. This will show asksys not to do this again.
Will it really though? Or will they just see poor sales and not won't to bother releasing again in the US? Maybe they released only digital in the US because their last few games sold horrible here and releasing digital is a far less risky venture? I'm sure they saw it as a way of getting a game out here in the US without risking costly printing/distribution payments.
frak that,wonder wot they will charge in uk,if peeps are new to it you can buy the already agarest game out on disc,but it has massive of small dlc content
I don't see the big deal..especially when you can game share it..split the cost with 3 friends and it's pretty cheap.
EU version is currently unavailable on Amazon right now. Anybody know a good site to order imports from?
I can only pay that much for disc based games that can be sold back to offset some of that high cost of the purchase.
3DDGH is on a disc and it's 5$ less than this... Yeah I'm not gonna cry for 5 bucks, but c'mon. I was thinking of buying it for PS3 if it was 30$ or something like that (Then I wouldn't mind the large download) but now I'm just gonna buy it for my 360.
for them to make this game run on the psp they will have to downgrade the graphic this game is made for HD consoles theres no way the psp wll run this version..
