wouldn't be surprised if they did. they increased the cost of xbox live because it was providing us "exclusives"

Granted, I didn't like the price increase for Xbox Live Gold too but for the love of God, we were paying 50 bucks a year and if a 10 dollar increase bothers you, maybe you should just sell your 360 and get a PS3 or a PC. Not to mention there are buttload of retailers (including online ones) that are selling prepaid cards for 45-50 dollars. Anyway, on topic; I can't wait to see what kind of job will 343 will do.

People will pay what they need to. AAA titles always seem to sell...I'll be getting this day-1 by default.

The article doesn't make much sense to me. If they were going to have it at a larger price point then it would only be because it's coming out for the Xbox 720. I think the price of games goes up by $10 next generation.

Which is ridiculous, keep the price of the game the same now and it might be justified.

You beat me to it. The only way I can see this game going up in price is if it's for the new console. Also if this is the case gamers world wide will start picking what games they buy more carefully. It could actually see a drop in game sales and a rise in game rentals.

This game's gonna be amazing! It'll CRUSH anything on ANY other console period. Bringing to bare the full power of the cutting edge GPU and unified architecture of the 360. This thing is gonna rock!

Ha, just like reach. Dream on dreamweaver.

But that's in pounds. It'll still most likely be the regular 60 Dollars down here in the states.

Edit: Yup, sure 'nough, $60 on Amazon. Just pre-ordered. I don't see what OP is talking about.
