Are you willing to pay $60 dollars for a PC Game?

Since Activision released Modern Warfare 2 on PC for $60, many other companies have followed suit.
StarCraft2 Will be released at the end of this week. Are you satisfied with the game's pricing policies? Are you going to pay $60 for a PC game? (Activision, Blizzard, EA, Industry, PC, Starcraft II)

A PC game with incredible replay value? Of course

All depends on the game. I'm quite willing to pay $100 for a good hardcore flight/space simulator or a kickass MMO because I know at the very least that I'll get hundreds if not thousands of hours out of it.

Your average shooter on the other hand, I wouldn't pay more than $10 for since there are millions of 'em already and it'll only last me a couple of days before I get bored with it. They're just not my cup of tea. But since they're selling easily at $50 and is one of, if not the most popular genre, then there must be enough people willing to pay the price, no?

In short, it's whether or not I think I'll like that particular game and how much entertainment I expect to get out of it, that determines if I consider it expensive or not. Star Craft 2 is well worth it for me even with the extra $10 added. A game like Call of Duty: Black Ops however, is not... even if someone tried to sell it to me for half price, I wouldn't buy it.

No, I don’t buy new games any more. Why should we, they drop in price usually quickly. Most of the time they have bugs and by the time those bugs are squashed, the price has dropped. I can wait for Starcraft 2 to drop, even if it is a year from now.

Ya, I can see your point, pretty sure SC2: wings of liberty will have a huge price drop once the zerg or protoss campaigns come out
