ugh... one more time: any mmo will cost you a box price. this is usually (in america) $50-$60. no one complained when they had subs attached to them, but now you're complaining when they don't? GW2 won't take a penny of your money after the initial purchase (unless you spend it in which case you can't blame the devs, no one's making you spend it. besides, people would complain about lack of options, and then turn around and complain about what those options provide), so stop being so entitled. these people have to make money somehow. yes they love to make games, but they also love to eat, and have elctiricity, and running water.

EDIT: this isn't really directed at the op. i understand it's quite a difference in england or the euro zone.

Thats how much we in the UK have to pay extra. We normally pay max of £35 which is about $55.

For me this is a one off payment for a game I've been waiting over 2 years for. If any other developer tried this extreme markup on a game I wouldn't buy it.

Yes you would. Maybe not initially but you would be "buying" it through a montly subscription.

We will just have to agree to disagree.  I am very opinionated on cash shops and when Anet changed their official description of cash shop from "cosmetic only" to "no advantage that can't be achieved through investment of time" then they crossed the line in my view.

One of the reasons I will not be buying GW2, at least at launch.  An epic RvRvR is probably the only thing that could draw me back in at this point....

that we shall =P were you reading my fight with RobertDih in the other thread ;) I for one am not a PVPer.. never will be but I play with many and try to keep up on the issues. I know we all have our own quirks like you and cash shops.. I had a boyfirend ages ago who refused ANY help at all in any game.. he wouldn't even have a crafter make something for him. Needless to say WoW wasn't the game for him ;). I hope that what you see on release will make you want to buy GW2 because if that happens I know it is a success in sceptics eyes.

I never got to endgame in EQ so I think I'm a bit below average. It is a good game though.

10-20 years ago...

 

Retail price on games average 49.99 I believe.

 

Here we are 20 years later and prices are nearly the same, in some cases up 10 dollars.  If, after 10-20 years of employment you're unable to afford an increase in 10 dollars something is wrong.

If you're a young child and new to the gaming industry, new prices should be standard for you and nothing to complain about. 

To put it another way, do you think that developers, artists, voice actors, and everyone else involved in the creation of a game should be paid the same salary they were 20 years ago?  I would expect a logical answer of no.  SO, you pay people more, you charge more. 

60 Dollars for a game that will entertain you for at the MINIMUM, 20+ hours is a steal.  Movies cost 10 dollars and provide less than 2 hours of entertainment.  At that ratio, video games should cost 100 dollars...

 Care to explain what part was a bit of a shock to you?

Have you thought about the amount of gametime the game offers compared to regular singleplayer games?

Did you know there is no sub attached to it?

So really I wonder what was it as ask a shock to you?

You new to gaming? just a curious and honost question

Apparently in the UK and France (or wherever the other person posting was from)  it is NOT the same price as other games.  I'm just curious....how much do games usually cost in the UK or anywhere using the euro?  Or are we dealing with more than just one different currency here?  Pounds and euros?  I don't know, I'm uneducated on this sort of thing.  Can someone answer that so this will make more sense?

Speaking as someone who buys from both UK retailers, portuguese retailers (euro) and some other online retailers.

 

 

Most PC games are around 50 euros, MMO's tend to be a bit less than that, but then they have subscriptions.

Usually even for pre-orders I can always get some deal, like SWTOR for instance, was something like 60 euros, I got it for 40 euros from a 33% discount as a pre-order ( was 50 quid, got to 33quid)

Console games are usually around 60 euros, most of them anyway. But I barelly ever buy a game for that price, because literally, you can always find an online deal, or even retailer every other week.

I will probably have to buy GW2 full price tho, doesn't bother me much, but oh well....

I would agree with those costs if there is 1000+ hrs of gameplay but I am betting you will be repeating content well around 100 hrs. Not worth the cost.

what'd you pay for the last shooter/rpg/rts/whatever you bought? and how much time did it provide you with?

Eh? What a silly thing to post. It's about £10 more than a normal game on a PC and considering GW2 is not a normal game (it's an MMO that you will never have to pay for again unlike the rest of them) then it's price couldnt really be any more normal and reasonable than this.

What price did you expect a game of this level of quality to be? 50p?

I think the right question to ask would be, "anyone else a bit shocked at the VALUE of this game". To which my reply would be, YES, the value here is staggering. A bit tongue in cheek, nevertheless, I do think this is a great value. What are you getting for the money? I really want Mass Effect 3, while it currently costs the same $60, it's not nearly the same value. I would beat ME3 in a few days, and while I would probably go back and play other "professions", it would be repeating the same story. GW2 on the other hand, for the same money, I'm expecting will provide years of play, thus, the value is far greater than most other fair available currently, or in the near future. Just my .02

You are mostly paying the extra for the Rytlock statue which seems to be expensive.

[quote][i]Originally posted by gainesvilleg[/i] [b]I think the price is fair unless the cash shop sells items that give in-game advantage.  Then it is basically the F2P with cash shop model but they are charging you $60 up front instead of free.  Time will tell on the cash shop, but it looks to be leaning towards in-game advantage items (chalice of glory, tome of influence, elite skills) as well as purely cosmetic but we shall see.  Defenders of Anet still think they would never do that... Full disclosure:  I will not be buying GW2 at launch... [/b][/quote]

 

A.)

I normally play F2P games or P2W games and unless your completely ignorant as to the use of the items you mentioned and the direction that Anet is going there is no way you'd think they would be pushing items in the cash shop that are going to provide a benefit versus others who wont have them.    (not a defender of Anet, just being optimistic towards their promises).

 

B.)

Why would anyone care if you are not purchasing the game at launch in conjunction to this thread? Unless you just want to see reactions from this statement...

 

Back on topic:

If the prices are so shocking then I think the North America market has been RIPPED OFF for the last few years because $59.99+ has been normal for a very long time...  Even if it was 75$ I wouldn't be shocked because of what the game is offering compared to all the other garbage on the market included Swotor, WoW, RIFT and more...  The game is heading to change the gaming industry when it comes to MMORPG's and with that being said I'd be willing to pay for the change.

I payed $59.99 for Skyrim. According to Steam I have 105 hours of time invested in it and got bored. I will probably some day go back and play again. I am truly happy there is no time monitor on World of Warcraft because I would feel so disgusted at the time I spent playing that. My point is is that I got way more hours out of an MMO than a regular RPG and if I were to divide the cost by the hours the mmorpg would be the way better deal. GW2 is my next grasp on escaping reality. 

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

I was shocked that the Collector's Ed is $150. That was until I saw the Rytlock statue. It is.. amazing.

Yep for a normal edition of the game it's quite a bit imo.  Hopefully you'll be able to get a better deal elsewhere, which is what I intend to do.

This looks like a job for....The Riviera Kid!

I'm very confused... where is it that you live that ~$60.00 US for a new game is appalling?  Throw in the fact that you will not be paying monthly for an MMO and this is basically the best deal out there. 

Not sure if the OP is trolling...

Standard is fine at around $60, but the initial time I saw the collectors at $150 I was a little shocked, although looking back I shouldnt be surprised, this is a trend we've seen in other games.  What hurts is here in Australia we're paying around USD$200
