Perhaps one of the saddest stories this year was the lack of commercial success for Child of Eden.
well that is a sad mistake on their part. This was a perfect $30 game, not $50. And having is downloadable would have really helped push the sales. I am going to predict thatit will be downloadable by tear end. What I can not predict is the price point.
It's odd the way they priced the game, pretty much killed it at retail. Then they've priced the PS3 version correctly, but, released it after the 360 version meaning the hype it had is gone.
So, it either should have been a relatively cheap Kinect-only disc game, or a multi DL featuring Kinect/Move options. Yet for some reason someone at Ubisoft - sort of - wanted it all. Including an illusion of exclusivity.
my personal GOTY... sure it wasn't ptised correctly, but other thing, I think people maybe should bought it more if there was at least more couple of levels
I will be buying it for PS3 at the end of this month. How long is the game?
6 or 7 levels + additional content, artwork, effects change, music clips ...I don't know maybe there are more content.. but game has got endless replay value
translation its its an hour/half game
Thanks venox :) I am buying it on the same day as the Team ICO collection, so I will play Child of Eden first :)
no prob. if you like thing like creativity in games, you'll be amazed by it's visuals and other pasionate things :)
It should of been a Xbla/psn title at around $25/£15 and it would probably have sold well as an impulse buy. I will wait for the bargain bin.
Pricing was all wrong - should have been put on shelves at £70 - £80. Worth every goddamn penny!
wow the game is worth more then my monthly food shopping? :O Got to be GOTY ;) :P
Or in my case, about half the cost of what I spend on food a week! Which illustrates nicely the point that it's silly to comment on a game's 'value for money', because the value of money varies massively from person to person depending on their circumstances. Here's the quote: "In plain words: The more dollars in one's bank account, the less valuable each individual dollar seems to be. "To the heir of a Middle Eastern kingdom, 10,000+ dollars for the super deluxe version of After Burner Climax will doubtless seem like chump change, whilst the Darfur refugee, who barely managed to scrape together the Sudanese pound equivalent of five bucks by scavenging the corpses of his fellow villagers after they were massacred by rampaging bandits, would no doubt balk at the thought of spending it all to download Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved." http://insomnia.ac/commenta...
