"As you might have already seen, Patrick posted an interesting story earlier today about Warhawk's price -- specially, that the game releases in a few weeks and doesn't yet have one (for the PSN download, at least). This story was rather important to me for two reasons: 1. because what Sony is doing with Warhawk by simultaneously releasing it on Blu-ray and PSN is rather unprecedented and I find this quite exciting, and 2. because I'm also reviewing the game for EGM, and price, especially for a PSN game, is absolutely a factor to consider.
Why? Because reviews are very much an indication of how much value something represents to a consumer.

It's why Shadowrun, which released at $60, was largely panned. It's why I recently scored the PS2 game The Red Star a 7.5 because, at $20, I felt it was a good value. It's why every review of the iPhone answered the real question on everyone's minds: is it worth $600 (it absolutely is, btw)..."
