Still not worth it

That's just crazy. No proper console/pc videogame should ever be that cheap considering the amount of money and hard work involved on creating them. Just not healthy for games development and gaming in the long term.

Saying that, great finding. Hopefully at least some more people get to enjoy it this way.

Nah, 20p is my biting point.

I'd agree, but it is a symptom of a saturated market where even the selective gamer has so much to choose from I'm certain the bulk of steam accounts have more unplayed than played games in them.

Battleborn is a lesson in how a few seemingly little mistakes can cost games developers hugely.

The way they built the game heavily banked on having a large player base to sustain it... Then they failed to really court an audience properly prior to release and made the enormous error of not doing enough to separate the game from Overwatch (which is really only a superficially similar game but the word was allowed to spread that it was a poor mans Overwatch and Overwatch was definitely going to be the definitive game in the genre... despite them not really sharing a genre).

I think it probably gave Gear Box ego a little bit of a bloody nose... Borderlands 1+2 are not enough to carry their future projects for them in the way millions of people would eat **** and claim it tasted good so long as Blizzard stamped their logo on it.

This should have went free to play ages ago. It's the only thing that could have saved it. Unfortunately even for £1 it's over priced as the player base is so low. Currently on Steam there are 66 people playing. I can't see consoles being much higher. I haven't voted either way.
