Homefront Gets Second Day Price Drop

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.

averyzoe2410d ago

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.

chainer30002409d ago

I hope they get the message - to much game protection makes a game undesirable.

Heartnet2409d ago

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!

Headquarters112410d ago

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

Scary692410d ago

I want to know where the price drop is since Best buy did not do the drop nor has walmart or Gamestop.

cochise3132410d ago

It's 42 dollars on amazon.

averyzoe2410d ago

Walmart has all but the very top version for $42. Just scroll.

antz11042409d ago

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.

StbI9902409d ago

Can someone make the joek?

FlopFront anyone? lwmao.

Vherostar2409d ago

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.

SixZeroFour2410d ago

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

Rocket Sauce2410d ago

Or you could wait a few weeks (or ONE DAY) and save lots of money.

VenGencE9992410d ago (Edited 2410d ago )

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...

SixZeroFour2410d ago

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

Platinum_k2409d ago

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...

jagstatboy2409d ago

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.

Vherostar2409d ago

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.

goosepoose2409d ago

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.

somethingstrang2409d ago

You couldn't be happier that the campaign is just as terrible as any CoD game?

ugabugaz2409d ago

I would pay $100 for GT5 and COD4 each.

Psychotica2409d ago

Wow wish I knew you, I would sold you my copy of GT5. I traded it in 2 weeks after I got it.

Shackdaddy8362410d ago

Preordered for 50 bucks and got a free game (metro 2033) with it. I think I got a good enough deal :)

Ducky2410d ago (Edited 2410d ago )

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.
=(

Gamer_Z2410d ago

The game doesn’t look that great but the MP looks like its fun and for that price it might be a good deal.

SpLinT2410d ago

just like i predicted, FlOPPpPp. COD Clone with a mix of BF. Devs should make an original game instead of copying a generic one.

Shinkus2410d ago

Just like I predicted, someone shooting down a game they most likely never played because they think that assumptions = truth.

orange-skittle2409d ago

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?

Shinkus2409d ago

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.
