Sony Overcharges for Prototype

Are you a minor league baseball player who’s just come into a big-ass fortune courtesy of a deceased relative? Does said fortune contain some whacky clause where you have to throw away all the cash in a month in order to receive an even more astronomical amount of dosh? Congratulations: you’re clearly Montgomery Brewster. Now, may we suggest blowing your first wad of cash on Prototype, a two year old game, which has just been released on PSN for a wallet-crippling £31.99.

Thats not even that bad when compared to the outrageous prices for the psp titles...

I want Killzone liberation and resistance but I seriousely cant pay $20 and $40 for them!

Im tired ill probably just go to gamestop*shudder* and buy the used copies.

Are GamesRadar really THIS stupid? Sony has confirmed on previous titles that it's the publisher that sets the download price.

NotSoSilentBob1957d ago

I was just going to post this is an Activision Game so why is Sony getting ripped on when Activision is the cause for Xbox Lives price hike?

King_many_layers1957d ago

This title is so stupidly sensational.

Sony have Infamous up on the store for, I believe around £17.

Both were released at the same time. They need to go back to an old fashioned approach that involves a or several comparison/s of facts.

Digital download prices always amaze me. I'll stick to Amazon and occasionally going to a retail store.

MrBeatdown1957d ago

Isn't Activision the one who determines pricing?

PirateThom1957d ago

Yes.

Sony only price their own games.

The guys on the blog already fed back the prices and how they felt they were too high, it's up to Activision or any other publisher to set the price.

I was about to say this too, what a moron.

Second of all, Sony has to be careful to not cut out the retailers too bad or they can revolt similar to what they did with the GO

Third, this is not seen a a major source of revenue. It is designed just to bring in some extra cash and that is all, downloads like this are in no way designed to replace traditional sales and their prices.

Fourth, its games radar... why are we even talking about them?

Christopher1957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

So, the complaint is that Activision is selling their game for more via digital service and therefore it's Sony's fault? Let alone the fact that no one is forcing anyone to buy the game digitally over any other means?

Damn, when will Sony lower the price of new games from $60. I mean, everyone sets that price, but we all know that it's Sony who makes these decisions. /s

Where has this guy been? Everyone who's looked knows that PSN prices don't match retail for some moronic reason.
