With so many months apart and one game reaching platinum status already why are these two games being sold at similar prices?
more or less
Games that sell poorly are sold at cheaper prices regardless of when they come out. Look how quickly Duke Nukem got a price drop.
Yeah, it's a bit concerning the current state of things, and the risk of new IPs, although remarkably good, has seemingly gone downhill since Alan Wake did not receive the sales the title so clearly deserved.
That's a fairly substantial drop. Probably didn't help matters that its release was quickly followed by a lot of games that were just... better. Not many people are going to be looking for Rage when they've got all the games from November to work their way through.
There's two ways of looking at this. Killzone 3 for a £10 is great £10 for RAGE is amazing. Or. RAGE II isn't going to be happening any time soon which is a shame as I thought the game was very good although a bit empty in terms of stuff to do.
I'm playing it at the moment and I'm loving it. I disagree with you that there's not enough to do. There's a bunch of racing competitions, side missions and mini games to complete. More content than the majority of FPS games I've played this gen. And unbelievable graphics to boot (and at 60 fps it's just ridiculous). Haven't played Killzone 3 but I wouldn't think twice on spending £10 to get a chance to.
RAGE was good, but the ending left me disappointed.
I got rage for $8 and its pretty cool but so far 4 hours in it seems to be a lot of fetch quest :( I Im glad I didn't pay full price for it but its okay. Killzone 3 is much better than rage in my opinion.
KZ3 and Halo Reach are £7.00 at Morrisons, I have not finished KZ3 yet but so far IMO Halo Reach is the better game, I have not played Rage at all so I wouldn't know how good that is, one thing I can tell you is that KZ3 does not come close the any online Halo but having said that I would rather play KZ3 online than the once great COD series, what a mess the online has become, that is how they treat their fanbase, I suppose they will tell us we need to go COD elite if they have not already.

Why? because I now own both consoles and have a honest opinion, get over yourself, KZ3 online is ok but it needs to evolve, you feel too boxed in, Halo is like a SC-FI BF3, freedom to move around land and air (sea also in BF3's case), COD would be great online other than the fact it's a broken mess full of cheaters. BTW I have a typo above, I meant to say KZ3 does not match any Halo that is online, the single player is debatable.
I disagree, i think kz3 is a much better game than halo reach (both campaign & online), but i think cod online better than both kz3's online & reach's. I find Reach to be beyond generic (in both campaign & online). But think kz2 is better than all. and p.s. bf3 is good too
COD would be great, but it's broken, too easy to cheat, I have not played CODMW3, I have only played CODMW2 on PSN but it's horrible at times, not a fault with PSN, apart from the chat issues PSN seems just fine, I think MW3 is better on Xbox-live due to regular updates, I do not recall the jumping cheat on Xbox-live? but it's a while since I went on Xbox-live with ?CODMW2 so perhaps it was on there also? but it's the stupid spawn shit I can stand e.g. not only can ground troops get you but the aircraft just ridiculous!!! KZ3 has potential, Halo if you like that type of game beats KZ3 online, BF3 IMO is the best FPS online, Homefront also.
I bought Rage and Killzone 3 at launch. All I got in November was the MGS HD Collection and Uncharted 3.
