If Ratchet and Clank managed to release at €34,99 this should've been €29,99 or worst case scenario, the same as R&C

I'm happy it is $40 because it could help people who may have been on the fence about the game decide to go for it. Looks like a ton of fun.

Ratchet and clank Remaster over a brand new game. Don't talk dribble.
Fair enough I agree it was a big improvement but it was 2 generations old still Yooka is a brand new game £30/40 wouldn't be extortionate.

To be fair it was thorougly reworked. Not your typical remaster work for sure.

As for Y-L being priced at 40, I couldnt be happier. Day 1if its anywhere near as good as B&K!

Would have bought it day one anyway, but glad it's only $40

Mr_Luke2260d ago

Great, i'm getting it day-one! Unless it's not worth it. I'm really looking forward to play a 3D platformer with old style elements. Always loved those games.

UgoGalimbertti2260d ago

Yeah, the gameplay videos had spyro vibes. Seems like a spot on platformer, world activities and puzzles, even buying new portals or other things like some spyro worlds

LAWSON722260d ago

Its actually alot like you know... Banjo Kazooie lol

Profchaos2260d ago

Yeah agreed I got spyro vibes and that's why I'm interested

UgoGalimbertti2260d ago (Edited 2260d ago )

LAWSON72, yeah, in the podcasts I hear them say, but unfortunately I never played Banjo Kazzoie. Nice to know there's a fan base. Hope it does well, it's always nice having good platformers every now and then.

Guess you never played banjo.

it has much more banjo vibes then spyro.
Like music and sound effects and dialogue. and collectibles etc

Glad it's no any higher in price as I already pre-ordered it. Ratchet and Clank was a fantastic game for $40 and that was the perfect price. Any higher and I think that would have hurt sales. I hope some of the smaller games can start being priced at $40, including smaller niche titles.

Not long ago a full price AAA game on PC was £30 or less for me, now £35 is considered cheap...
