Yall really pay $60 for a game?

Y'all must be them n*ggas that actually buy on release date instead of waiting

For example Mass effect 3 sold a sh*t load, i waited

Not even a full month and mass effect is on sale for $40....good price but im still waiting

this.

i usually wait. or Sometimes find em a week later on CL for $45-$50

How much of an investment is it when they already have a games on demand service? Do they have to wait a certain amount of time or something?
I don't know exact numbers, but they would have to "buy/rent/lease" the necessary broadband for the games... and they would be smart to make sure thier is a market for that particular game, before taking that risk... I mean MS is one thing but Sony can't really afford to take too many risks right now...they need "sure things"

There's a war going on in the video game world, but it's over dollar signs, not virtual land.
A boxed copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, the world's top-selling console game, costs $60. Angry Birds, the world's biggest mobile game franchise, costs $1 for software that you can download in under a minute. The pricing gap between what's traditionally considered the highest-tier premium games and the fast-evolving mobile, tablet, and social gaming market is widening, and it's spelling disaster for countless game makers caught in the middle.
What is this bullsh*t? why does soem stupid blogger always have to bring up mobile/social gaming like its an actual threat to console/pc gaming? they both have their core audience

fu*king hate stupid goddamn bloggers almost as much as i hate people who consider angry birds and zynga sh*t real video games. Take your hipster ipad bullsh*t to starbucks and take your gamesloft and zynga bullsh*t with you, leave the real games to real gamers.

The ONLY thing i will give tablets/phones is they have somehow managed to get the license for good retro RPGS, that's it, no good original IPS.

They should had been ended the $60 tag for video games they didn't start this sh*t until the 360 dropped in '05. Developers go any higher on the price tag, they think their struggling now trying to sell games at $60 they are going to be in serious trouble if games hit the $70 or $80 price tag it's going to be a serious problem.

All of this is just to put an end to gamestop and online business from selling used games. In the long run developers are going to fu*k themselves over by fu*king over the consumers.

boxed games are going no where

in order for that to happen everyone would need 20+MBPS connections with no bandwidth caps, there is a good chunk of console gamers that don't even have broadband, and a good chunk of the ones that do are on 1-3mbps with 50-250gb caps.

This.. My bro went to pre-purechase Guild Wars 2 today and they gave him a receipt with his beta key on it and he told me that when the game actually comes out, the only thing that's gonna be in the box is the manual and download code you need to enter in to download it from the Guild wars 2 client / site

The whole point of buying games (especially PC) is so you can install it from disc. sh*t is going a whole nother direction

and this sh*t is going thru the roof with the next gen systems. the biggest reason why i think next go round in video game systems is the last. even if the used game market was wiped away...with exorbitant prices the big studio aaa development will eventually k!ll itself.
damn never thought about it from that stand point. But you're right. Hopefully it'll take a lot longer to get to this point though.

Some Nintendo 64 games were over $60 so $60 games isn't just new to this generation.
