It's pretty much what all new games costs these days, thankfully I only buy the ones I really want.

Ps2s' "Legend" is the same price as Xbox360s' :vlol:They are the same price here. The prices vary from 24,90€ - 69,95€ here and the price doesn't depend on which console the game is. Though handhelds, past gen consoles and PC often have lower prices. PS2 still seems to be current gen cause of the prices. :p

I think Underworld will be about 59,90 - 69,90€ for PS3 here. Meh.. I wasted 72,80€ on MGS3 so I'm willing to pay that.

Do these high prices mean that the game will be very long?:p

20-02-08, 14:12
I will most surely not wait for the prices to drop. I'll grab the first copy I see and if someone tries to get it before me I'll... I'll... I dunno what really. Not something you wanna see though. :mis:

And if there's people in the queue I will tell them to shove off. :p

Prices go up and down all the time... they will just be estimates and not the final price.

Smegzilla

Current 360 prices for the UK start at 40, while PS3 prices start at 50, so I'd expect the game to retail around that price range unless anything changes in the meantime.

all newly released games on the same platform are about the same price, and TR:U will not be an exception:)
if anything, the games will be cheaper at the end of the year

Agreed.

Oh and I also can't see how the price of a game is a spoiler... :p

It hints as to how many time Lara needs to cry before she gets her Mum back!

I am in a predicament. We are getting a PS3 not long after it comes out and I will NOT be able to wait that long ( a few months ) so what I'm doing is waiting a week or so after it's release and then going into Game Station and picking it up pre-owned on the cheapest platform until I get the PS3.

Yeah... just as the last tear is about to be squeezed from Lara's eye the unthinkble happens... her Mum drops dead from a drug overdose. Then Lara shuts up.

Interesting that the "lo-res" consoles like Wii and PS2 are $20 cheaper than the X-Box and PS3. I'm still buyin PS3, though!

Cool. I'm kind of surprised if the PC version will really be $40 compared to the $60 Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. I hope this doesn't mean that the PC version will be a quick port.

PC games are always cheaper than console games. The reason console games are priced higher is because some of the money needs to go to Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo etc.

BTW, you do know that the PC version will be a port, right? :o

PS3 version $60? That's not half bad actually. :p:D Thanks for the link.

What about this new "Games for Windows" trend? Do they have to pay Microsoft to review the PC version as well?

I know it will be a port. The question is will it be a good port or will it be a quick, sloppy port which plays like crap? Considering that an Xbox 360 version is being made, I'm hoping it will be very easy to port over to PC so they can actually spend some more time testing the PC version to make sure it plays well :)

Ah, forgot about the GfW thing. I'm pretty sure that it has to get reviewed by MS just like console games, but I don't think they get a cut of the profits, though otherwise, the games would be priced higher.

Oh. Well, I'm pretty sure Nixxes has learned some new techniques and whatnot since porting Legend so I don't think PC players should worry. :)

Okay, according to this site (http://www.x-rates.com/calculator.html#), if the game comes out with that price ($39.99/ 26.97), then it will be cheap. Generally, a game the just came out and new here costs +/- $81.39 (54.90), but there's a small chance it will cost +/- $73.98 (49.90).

Conclusion: if TRU will cost that then it will be cheap, but we're talking of an online shop, so probably it is cheaper;)
