$40 Halo CE: Anniversary 'is not a cash grab'

Microsoft Halo studio 343 Industries has insisted its £40 Halo: Combat Evolved HD update "is not a cash grab" (Halo HD, Microsoft, Xbox 360)

Halo is a great game. Great titles deserve a remake so the younger generation can enjoy them. If it were a upgrade, I'd say £40 is a bit high sine you can get other HD collections with 2-3 games plus extras for $20-$40, but they seem to be really overhauling it. Framerate issues in the trailer were questionable though.

If they have to tell you "it's not a cash grab", then it's a cash grab.

Oh, how quickly people forget how Halo ODST magically jumped from a half-priced add-on to a full-priced game when they added a few old multiplayer maps.

I thought this was suppossed to be cheaper than full retail?

It is, it's being priced at $39.99 in North America.

Yeah but we're talking about the UK here.

That's the RRP, expect to see this sell for less than £30. Bar CoD, the standard UK RRP is £49.99, yet all retailers knock at least £10 off at launch.

Microsoft and ripping of customers?

I don't care how they price it, it's not as if you are forced to buy it.

Well if £40 is the RRP then expect it to sell £29.99 at many places, although a ps3 fan I'll be picking up halo HDCE

I guarantee it will sell for way less than £40, in fact if I pay more than £25 fo it I'll eat my Legendary spartan helmet! Mind you there's no VAT where I live ;)

should be a download.

yes it is a cash grab, and ive already played this game, and their wont be any difference with the Remake. $40 for a game that launched with the original XBOX?,.....thats a $$$$ grab if there ever was one. I could find Halo for $5 right now, just about anywhere. There no real relevance to this release, or a need for another purchase.

Make it $25 then it'll probably make some real good bank. $40 is crap.
