I live in the UK and i see them at like £40, in fact i see them in sales for £30 very rarely!

No ps3 game costs £30, not even £40. I also live in the Uk and wherever i look, its the same everywhere for PS3 games. £50/£60. But theres one thing we should all take into account, if i remember rightly, most games that are put up for pre-order are put up for a higher price to save the disappointment of them going up. If they had put them at the lower price of £40, and they then go up to £50, peopl aint gonna be happy. So put them at £50 and they can only go down. So maybe it will be the same for the PS3

But, if that is not the case and the play.com price is right, then the prices in store will be around £60, which is a bit too mcuh for a game. £50 is bad enough.

The article says that Play.com are to release the ps3 games for £10 more than 360 games within it's own site. nowhere is it suggeting a price comparison with other retailers.

Can you go ahead and use your last bubble please?

Any way this is what we expected. As a 360 owner I wont have a gamer dry spell like most hard core PS3 whenthe shortage hits. And people will be selling PS3 in june or july 2007 I'll get mine then. And if the games are not cheap then so be it only buy the games you want and it wont be a problem. And yes the High price of the PS3 sucks bad but fi you want it you will pay thats why I wait to see whst happens.

I remember when Resident Evil 2 first came out on the PS1 and it was sold at £50. So this is not a completely surprising price point.

Still at the current rate of conversion that is almost $94 a game, fairly pricey.

Wolfenstein: The New Order Is The Last Of Its Kind

Wolfenstein: The New Order turns ten years old today, so we decided to play it again and discovered just how much of an extinct kind of game it is.

It's an outstanding game and so was The Old Blood. Also a lost era of gaming. Interesting, I received a physical copy of The Old Blood 9 years ago today from Poland. It was digital only in North America initially upon release so I had to import.


Wolfenstein: The New Order - A Highly Rated FPS That Hasn't Stood the Test of Time

Wolfenstein: The New Order launched 10 years ago today, but can it stand up to the modern FPS titles it inspired?

I disagree. Its still a fantastic game, with very good gunplay and a surprisingly loveable cast of characters and a good story trough many different and interesting setpieces

All The New Order needs for my tastes is a this gen enhancement patch.

I played New Order a couple of years after launch and I give it an 8/10. The shooter holds up because it is focused on being a good shooter. There is no crafting, no RPG elements, no open world find the question mark Weapons are fun. Enemies are fun. Levels offer a nice mix of stealth and shooting. You get to be the predator; this isn’t a game about fending off waves of enemies while a robot companion unlocks a door. Most importantly, New Order is the last of a dying breed of single player shooters.
