THQ’s new release Homefront was unleashed to the public yesterday for $59.99, what has become a pretty standard pricepoint for big budget titles. Gamers who bought Homefront on release day are in for a surprise, though.
It a shame. All of that hype and it a flop. I would of bought you but THQ got desperate and gave the 360 timed DLC. lol well i guess M$ wasted their money since this game is a flop.
I think a lot of people were frustrated with the idea of both a short single player coupled with limited resale value due to needing to buy an Online Pass for used copies. Doesn't seem like you get as much bang for your buck as other games.
I hope they get the message - to much game protection makes a game undesirable.
Erm how can peopel be frustrated 2 days after release!! If you could get a pre owned copy that soon you wud pay like $4 less than the New copy so :P ONLINE PASS FTW!
I heard this game has a very limited amount of weapons? Fuck that, I'll wait til it hits 30 or less.
i got mine for pc from a site (id rather not mention) for free. then just plugged in my xbox 360 controller as it has full support for it and hey presto. i get to sit back relax and enjoy a free game. i aint complaining. also the same with assassins creed brotherhood. its the good thing about multi plats on the pc they always have full controller support and video settings so i can get the most out of my games. as charlie sheen says: WINNING.....duh
I want to know where the price drop is since Best buy did not do the drop nor has walmart or Gamestop.
It's 42 dollars on amazon.
Walmart has all but the very top version for $42. Just scroll.
And you wasted your one bubble on a troll comment. Good on you lil' guy! For $40 thats not a bad deal, especially if they fix the multiplayer issues.
Can someone make the joek? FlopFront anyone? lwmao.
Its what you get for buying an unproven series on day 1. You get what you deserve and learn from your mistakes.
shame on you if you payed $60 for any game.
yea, shame on the gamers for trying to support the game developers and game industry for paying full price, when we should be supporting the retailers instead and buy the used copies /sarcasm
Or you could wait a few weeks (or ONE DAY) and save lots of money.
How about shame on gamers for NOT knowing when they are being taken advantage of? Or how about shame on more gamers for not taking a stand and bending over and taking whatever the industry gives them. Blind support is the worst and ONLY benefits one side. You want to save someone, save yourself. I've bought AC:BH,KZ3,GT5, and a number of other high profile new releases at release this year and none of them were finished and in need of several patches, some of which are STILL in need of patches. You think you're supporting these poor devs when you buy their unfinished product at $60? Wrong, all you're doing is enabling them to continue this practice and laughing at our foolishness. I'm glad more GAMERS are using their consumer power. This business model needs to go away, ASAP. I for one hope this trend continues for the betterment of everyone, not just stockholders who give a rats ass what they are selling us...
thats like saying its alright to pirate games...cause in the end of the day, the game devs arent getting the money either way and im not saying to buy every game for full price, i was just commenting on the op about NEVER paying full price for any game...VenGencE999, you are right, consumers shouldnt just be bending over backwards, but im saying if the product is worth it, then you should support the dev team (and again, im speaking "in general" cause op said for ANY GAME) like CoD, i feel you SHOULDNT be paying full price considering they release every year, but for quality games like killzone, halo, battlefield and possibly even this game (havent played it) you should support them...its up to the consumers to decide for themselves what is worth it and what isnt, but to think there isnt a single game out there worth the full price? ppl in the gaming industry deserve what they make...ever heard of crunch time? never a good time to be working under those circumstances, but they do anyways
venGencE999 you are messed up. Those games you mentioned are great games, if not they are very decent games. i dont know what the hell you are talking about...
how 'bout I support myself and buy it new when it goes down in price or used if I want and not caring about what rich entity get richer retailers, developers, or publishers. I RARELY pay $60 for a game.
Erm shame for paying $60?? When I was a kid games at the most were £7 for my commodore 64. People are being seriously ripped off and so sales drop thus prices rise its a vicious cycle.
I bought the game for $60 on day one and I couldn't be happier. The campaign is just as good as any of the COD games and the online is better. To top it all off, amazon gave me $15 towards my next purchase. Yes, shame on me.
lol. thats funny, thats not saying anything at all. the single player campaigns for COD is just an irritation for the developer (something to get out of the way). Its 4 hours for a reason, they dont give a fuck about it. If they did it wouldnt be 4 hours.
You couldn't be happier that the campaign is just as terrible as any CoD game?
I would pay $100 for GT5 and COD4 each.
Wow wish I knew you, I would sold you my copy of GT5. I traded it in 2 weeks after I got it.
@Imamabear Shame on you for being so ignorant.
Preordered for 50 bucks and got a free game (metro 2033) with it. I think I got a good enough deal :)
You could've gotten it from D2D for $40. I paid $50 to steam to get the TF2 bandana. Truth be told, I pre-ordered Shogun2 mostly for the TF2 items too. I am a disgrace. =(
The game doesn’t look that great but the MP looks like its fun and for that price it might be a good deal.
just like i predicted, FlOPPpPp. COD Clone with a mix of BF. Devs should make an original game instead of copying a generic one.
Just like I predicted, someone shooting down a game they most likely never played because they think that assumptions = truth.
Dude, I saw every gameplay footage and i thought the same thing. It's CoD wrapped with some battlefield aspects. vehicles, drones, and loadout are all battlefield and the rest is CoD hands down. Plus, the graphics aren't that great. Wait for battlefield 3 instead. BTW, KillZone 3 sucks(5 maps in warzone). WTF is that?
Sorry, guess I was wrong for thinking that playing a game truly shows how the game is. If videos were able to relay as much information as actually playing the video game itself then video game sales would be dead. I took a shot in the dark and purchased Homefront and don't regret it at all. The single player is in fact in short (but it still gets across a great story) and the multiplayer is phenomenal, the battle points system manages to really differentiate the game from other shooters out there and makes the game a LOT more fun to play. Not that it matters though, seeing as the majority of the people on here just saw 7 reviews and said "this game sucks, cod clone". Loss of the people who won't try it though, I'll still be enjoying it.
"Dude, I saw every gameplay footage and i thought the same thing. It's CoD wrapped with some battlefield aspects. vehicles, drones, and loadout are all battlefield and the rest is CoD hands down." Dude, I saw every gameplay footage of Black Ops and thought it was gonna play (and look) better than even MW2....wrong.
I got the game, and am actually enjoying it a lot. The multiplayer is a lot of fun. Yes some of the things need to be patched, but that will occur soon hopefully.
The online is crazy fun. I prefer it to COD any day. It plays alot like BFBC2 online.
Rented it....too bad i cant try online that much since that stupid pay to play online DLC shit. Honestly I was debating this game, but they keep shooting themselves in the foot. Exclusive DLC for Xbox. The whole pay ten dollars only works on known namebrands, this is a brand new (franchise?) and they want you to jump right into paying for it? People are doubtful as is.
I thought you could play the online but couldn't level up beyond a point? (sort of like Crysis2's Mp demo) So you get the SP, and can try the MP, if you like it then you can get the pass (if you're buying it second hand ofcourse). If they're offering dedicated servers, and you can see yourself playing it for some time, then it's not a bad deal.
You cant go past level 5 and you cant play on the "original" idea maps which should make the game stand out. Instead you are stuck playing on you standard "cod" game types. The whole "best player gets targeted" could of sold it for me. Id much rather a free 7 day "trial" then to be restricted.
works for me
Kaos, I am disappoint.
This is not a pricedrop related to sales. It's just plain logic, the game hasn't been out anywhere near long enough for a retailer to even consider dropping sales, it just doesn't make sense. Many UK stores were selling the game for £30 rather than £40, not because of sales, but because they can and often do on launch week.
Ok, I am not buying a game just cuz of the hype ever again.
Same here, next time I'll rent first.
I'm not sure I understand. Everyone talks about how terrible the game is, but it is rated 76% overall. I guess I need to just play the game and rate it myself.
It's actually pretty good.
I'm going to give it a try for sure. I've loved games that others hate in the past. Like Nier, I really liked that game...critics seem to think it killed their parents.
Is the game really so bad?
Batman AA had a day 1 price drop in Canada and it did pretty well.
This turd just won't flush!
Must have been a one day sale because it's $55.96 right now.
Being a WWE fan, I like THQ's wrestling games and I'll be picking up WWE All-Star on the 29th, but I've never been a fan of THQ's other games, like Red Faction and Darksiders. So, I've been on the fence about getting Homefront. I was hoping for a demo. I guess it paid off not picking the game up right away. I'll get it from GameFly whenever they decide to send it to me.
I'm glad I rented this game instead of buying. It looks TERRIBLE. It is a few pixels more than a XBOX/PS2 game IMO. Lol, I'm sorry, I don't mean to piss anybody off, but in today's age of gaming, there is no excuse for this. I just wish there was more resources thrown into the games themselves and less on advertisements. The potential for what could've been a new great game and story was handled poorly IMO. I just think when a game like this needs defending, it is already has a problem because it has trouble standing on its own merits of being a good game. Maybe the truth is more simple, perhaps it is just not good.
The game is not wholly terrible, nor is it that great, hence the 76 metacritic. Sheesh. People make this harder than it has to be. But yeah, the graphics are about as ugly as possible.
multiplayer is really awesome . death animation is cool too . but graphics are pretty poor , only about 3 colors : red , green and brown .
The reality is it's just another mediocre FPS. So I don't get the hype. It's not like it was trying to reinvent the wheel or take FPS games to the next level like BF3.
Homefront sucks get Black Ops /s
another BAD fps like call of duty and crysis
I don't really care. Their fault for making a mediocre game and label it as AAA.
Too many other good shooters coming so saving the money..
Wow the trolls are really out in abundance today! #Fastball - This warlock checked Amazon and Walmart (online) and neither of them are selling the game for $40, new at least. It is $55 which might be cheaper than day 1/pre-orders but I remember they did the same thing with Gran Turismo 5, it dropped in price the day after release. My wife was pissed because she bought it for me. Awesome game for fans of multiplayer FPSs. It isn't perfect but it is fun and most problems can be resolved with patches. Get it on the PC though if your rig can run it.
All this tells me is that I should keep waiting until the price drops even further.
Im enjoying it =) not the best multiplayer ever, but better than most. Got Metro 2033 and Onlive console free too
I didn't buy into the pre-release hype, and I'm not buying into the post-release slating. Once I can buy it for 30 bucks I'll find out for myself.
I'm seeing a drop of maybe $5 on those sites, not down to $40 like this article says. The only $40 copies are used... which don't come with the online code so you can only rank up to level 5.
The game was $40 yesterday, prices have gone back up today.
Shit game and shit tactics of America trying to demonize North Korea even more.
Kinda off topic, but North Korea demonizes themselves. I've seen undercover reports from inside there and it's not much better than a concentration camp.
