PSX Extreme: Hoard Review

PSX Extreme: "Maybe it’s just because I’ve played a whole lot of mediocrity recently. Maybe it’s because I really felt the need to kick back with a fun, entertaining title that is just plain charming to behold. Maybe it’s because I have a thing for quick downloads that offer a great deal of gameplay for only $15 (still one-quarter the price of a new full title)."

On a related note, you know that there's something wrong with the industry and consumer awareness, when we think that $15 is some sort of steal.

Maybe it's because I have two mortgages now, or I'm just more aware of money and it's ups and downs, but $15 isn't cheap. That's 1/10 the grocery budget for the house for a week. Or 1/10 of the phone and cable bills. The one thing that I have come to appreciate more and more about MMOs, iOS and indie games is the price to value ratio.

While value is subjective, you can pick up some amazing games these days for cheap. Console publishers need to rethink the way that they're headed with pricing, DLC, costume packs and all that other $hit, or they'll price themselves right out of the market.
