keep in mind it comes with a month of gameplay already payed for (15 dollar value). So really the game is only 45 dollars.

Ive bought my fair share of MMO's from the shops and i remember seeing Rift on sale in game and that was £30-ish. £45 is virtually unheard of for a MMO or a pc game in Britain. Hope this isn't going to be the trend or ill be waiting for the prices to plummet from now on.

See this is what I am talking about, I have never seen a "MMO" for 60 bucks.

Thats because TOR is the first to charge that much. Console games yes $60 and the PC version has been $50. An MMO has never cost $60 until now.

Yea same here in Poland.

PC games are cheaper than console ones, simply because when selling a console game, certain % goes to Microsoft or Sony.

That's why consoles cost few hundred bucks max, and not 1000$ + cause Sony / MS earn money on every game sold by others on their consoles.

 

So if someone sell PC game version at same price as same game for Xbox / PS, then dear PC user you're getting scr**ed.

 

Just for info cause nowadays many ppl don't know that. (it was common knowegedle in PS1 times...)


Well in US it cost $60 for Skyrim pc or console, this is the norm nowadays. Only Rift physical was $60, its digital was $45-50 (don't recall exactly), however the digital for PC for most games nowadays is around $60 too...which is just silly. Funny thing is many consoles are planning to make digital versions of games cheaper than the physical with their next generation consoles, I guess PC devs think that it's ok to be greedier than the console nowadays just because of PC gamings growing popularity...

This is what newer PC gamers talk about when they say PC gaming is getting more expensive. It used to be that the initial high cost of creating the gaming computer was cancelled out by cheaper games...not anymore. Anyway, I've only been playing console and indie computer games recently, so I'm not exactly being screwed as a PC gamer.

Yea. Kinda sad.  I just hope same situation does not happen in my country.

Cause publishers just earn much more money per game on PC than on console version cause they don't need to share with Sony / MS.

Yea they do plan to have digital versions cause :

a) more money per copy

b) will allow to sell additional stuff (DLC, microtransaction,etc) best thing is that cause consoles are closed stuff opposed  to PC. Microsoft and Sony if they decide to they'll be able to have monopoly on digital sales. No competition from 3rd party sale sites like Steam, Origin, Gog, D2Drive, etc

Same business strategy like Apple :)

 

At consumer expense though....

has no one heard ever of inflation? Eventually prices go up as the dominant currency, in this case the dollar, gets weaker. Want to know why it is $60? Look at the state of economics for the last few years.

Thats crazy!!! Does make coffee for you while you're playing to help you stay awake?  You get a solid gold figurine, what??  I mean  its gotta come with something.  Hell, I don't even know much about the game, but I'm gonna have to check it out just to see what it is.  Is it an MMO that I'm not aware of??

They are coming for you!

Um, you do understand that ~$50 or $60 is pretty standard for major releases these days, right? Just look at anything by a major studio in 2011 and you'll see my point. The price of the Digital Deluxe edition pretty much corresponds to most collector's editions, and the SWTOR collector's edition matches the price of other collector's editions that contain big items like statues: Skyrim, for example.

So the pricing is standard, plus you get early game access and your first month of game time. So I don't know what you are whining about. These pricing tiers are hardly novel or exorbitant.

No but the production run is LIMITED and you get autographs by either Seth McFarlane (spawn), R.A. Salvatore (writer), or Curt Shilling (baseball player).  That's kinda bad arse if you ask me. Not 275 bad arse.  But still those aren't small fry names.

Its so expensive because we dont take a stand. We take all the crap they throw at us showing them that its okay to increase the prices, we dont care, we are dumb gamers flocking to the over priced games.

 

IF TOR gamers did not buy the game the first day, a standof, it would show them but it wont happen.

 

By we I mean you all, I wont buy this game at all and I am not buying games the first few months after they are out. Peace out.

 I remember paying 40-50 bucks a pop for orginal nintendo games when they were first released.. so really the prices haven't gone up that much at all considering how much more goes into games these days

Did you not see the post on inflation?

Part of it is also what the market will bear, I wouldn't deny that. Games have been stuck at a certain price point for quite a while. However, all people have to do i check out what the difference is by using one of many inflation calculators.

Wouldn't it be awesome if games were always priced to be based on the current value of a dollar?  One day you go in and the game is 60.53, the next week the value of the dollar rose so the new price is say like 58.20.  People who want the most "bang for their buck" would actually have to learn something about economics.  

I know the price wouldnt change too much day to day, but at least people wouldnt be devolving into idiotic consumers who dont understand the reasoning behind market trends.

so true. What year are you talking about and we can see. I think there is something like a 10 dollar difference between today and 2004.

that was like in the late 80's.. i remember the "BIG" games generally cost 40-50 then the lesser ones for about 25-30
