The price of No Man's Sky was announced recently and it seems like most of the people on the internet weren't too pleased with it. Harry from Pixel Cheat shares his thoughts on the matter.
Too right. I'm sure you've all spent more money on lesser things.
Exactly! The article says of NMS price, "seems like most of the people on the internet weren't too pleased with it", which is nonsense, it was just a vocal minority trying to take the shine off of something new. It's what they always do and it makes bugger all difference to the normal people enjoying the hell out of it.
Spent more than this on a lap dance to be honest.
I think you got ripped off
This isn't a 2 hour 2D platformer made by 5 people. This is a full game. Just because they don't belong to EA or another 3rd part company doesn't mean they can't make a full game with a ton of content. Look at what Paradox with their 15 employees did with City Skylines. They made the best city builder ever that sold 2 million + copies.
I agree that devs can charge whatever they want for their game. I mean, it's their game. But... that doesn't mean I have to agree with it. I just wait till it drops to a price I find fitting. I guess the mentality is, It makes sense for big budget AAA titles to charge £40-£50. Whilst smaller budget titles shouldn't charge as much. but.. you could also argue that there's a lot of content, and you can get lots of hours out of the game therefore it's worth £40-£50... - X'O
Just because it isn't a big budget AAA game does not mean it isn't worth $60. This isn't a game like most indies. In fact, all reports say it has a whole lot more to do than a lot of AAA....and its gorgeous looking. It actually looks more like a AAA game than an indie game to me, to be honest.
I don't mind the price, because at this point they haven't shown me anything to make me say, "I need this game in my life."
Most will just pirate it anyway lol
Gimme that psvr no man's sky. I'm gonna gobble that s#!+ up
There is no justification whatsoever for complaining about the price. This isn't some half assed $20 arcade game.If $60 is too much for this game, then don't buy it. There's literally nothing that would warrant complaints about the price, especially when less complete triple-A titles cost the same (or more with season passes).
Agreed. From what's been shown so far, the scope in itself justifies the cost. How fun will it be? How much variety is in the game's experience? We will find out closer to the release date. Everyone who's in an uproar right now is just on a high from complaining about other games. People have forgotten that not every developer is evil and not every price is a slap to the face. I trust an Indie who charges a high amount over a tripleA game that has a season pass already planned out.
Straw man argument. I didn't see any complaining before this article.
Just because you didn't see any complaining it doesn't mean that it never happened. I saw plenty of complaining in regards to the price and heard loads from people that I know.
Stop defending it. It's not even out yet. Anyone defending it is a fanboy, anyone bashing it is a fanboy. Wait until it's out and reviewed or better yet try it yourself and decide for yourself.
Dude did you even read it? That's literally the point of the article.
