SEGA cuts price for Golden Compass and VF5 on Xbox 360

SEGA has just announced that it will cut the price for The Golden Compass on all platforms and the Xbox 360 version of Virtua Fighter 5. The announcement was only made for Europe, but it is expected the same price cut will follow soon in America.

As of next week, Virtua Fighter 5 will be in stores for only €30, in stead of €60. The Golden Compass will have a new price tag as of next week, with the PSP version at €20, the PS2 version at €30, and the Xbox 360/PS3/Wii version at €40.

Did the 360 version of Virtua Fighter 5 realy bomb that badly?

Salvadore5986d ago (Edited 5986d ago )

But the Golden Compass (The next LOTR according to some Sega executive), now that was pretty expected as the movie...

*shrugs* Shame for them seeing how much time and effort/lies they threw behind it in regards to online play.

... 40 Euro is still about as much as 60 Dollars.

So they PRETEND it's a nice small budget-price, while it's actually just as much as the game should have cost when it came out and was new... cause that's what the Americans etc have to pay for a NEW game.

Apparently, we Europeans will gladly pay 'full-price' for a 'budget-game', while I'm sure the Americans will be able to pick up this game within 1-2 months for about 30 dollars (20 euro) (!)

It's about time that companies stop taking advantage of the European gamers by overpricing their games all the time...

Ah well, at least Virtua Fighter 5 is now 30 euro, which is still alot, but is probably worth it.

Sega put too much time into the xbox 360 version thinking it was gonna do so much better and then it just tanked... VF is old hat, that's why. It hasn't got a chance in today's world of gaming.

As far as 3-d fighters go... DOA is more accessible and user friendly... Tekken is more appealing. Simple as that.

BloodySinner5986d ago

The 360 version is the best version. Sega just didn't market it accordingly. Hell, some of my friends bought a PS3 just for VF5 not knowing there 360 version was out.

Bnet3435986d ago

I didn't like Virtua Fighter 5. I prefer Dead or Alive 4.

I work videogames retail, and I am ashamed to have the Golden Compass on display on my wall.

Very seriously ashamed.

Nearly every person who has bought it has told me that it sucks horribly, and even their kids don't like it.

Also, I had a 10 year-old come into my store and yell "MOVIE GAMES SUCK.....THEY ARE A MOCKERY!!!!"

It was the best moment of my working life.

What is?

Witcher III, Slay the Spire, Virtua Fighter 5, and Sonic Mania are an excellent lineup of titles to add.

Smok911120d ago (Edited 1120d ago )

Lol thanks for your thoughts. Let’s now collectively disagree.

waderae1120d ago

How can you disagree with virtua fighter 5? You haven't played it. It's not out.

Hawk1986661120d ago

All the disagreeing are fools. You thinking adding a 6yrs old game thats timed, that's on sale nearly all the time for cheap is a great addition as the main game?? 2 of the games are previous PS+ games so a lot will already have them. And Virtua Fighter nearly everyone will already have that through plus! You're all Clueless

SegaSaturn6691120d ago

Those are great titles. Real treat.

Rocosaurus1120d ago

Love witcher 3, but that game is six years old.

Eidolon1120d ago

Great great game. Would need another playthrough (Gwent and horse racing) to get the platinum, plus I never bought/played the expansions.

monkey6021120d ago

Slay the Spire is an incredible game

Highrevz1120d ago

Agreed but I almost slept on it if I’m honest.

It’s like a traditional turn based RPG without the dramatic story. Monster Train is another good game if you need something similar to Slay the Spire.

monkey6021120d ago

I've heard that actually. Not played it yet though. Good shout!
