cheap

dropped pretty quickly...

wish there was a demo on PSN.

That's gone down fast................no pun intended

HEAT

Well that was quick, didn't think it would hit £25 after a week. I'm hoping Split Second isn't too far behind. There's just been far too many good games released in the last few weeks for them all to sell well.

quidco and nus discount for students, mine was £23.74 plus 4% quidco

I have this on the PS3 and I think it's superb. I wanted to try a demo out first but didn't get a chance to becuase there isn't one available on the PSN. But I'm glad that didn't stop me purchasing because it's such an addictive game. It's like the Call of Duty of Racers.

IGN gave this 7.0 out of 10.0 here

uk.ps3.ign.com/obj…tml

which seems decent......but what does the quick price drop suggest.....crap game, lack of interest or a price to convince ppl to stop playing RDR (those who love it) and try something else????

voted hot for the price mind you....£25 for a recent release is a great price

great price but having just bought mod nation racers, i can't see me having enough time to get into both of them

i think the single player could get boring vey quickly on this having played the demo

Also. You can play your own music from the PS3 while playing this which is a brilliant feature. I love tearing up the track whilst listening to my own pumping beats.

i had the demo on xbox live and i thought it was whak i mean its like battle machine autos just with better cars and its so childish who uses lasers or mines to blow up a car getting a bit far from reality

As you have been able to on the xbox / xbox 360 for past 5 years. Was a disgrace the ps3 could not do that from the start it's such a neat feature.

Wrong choice of car maybe

Price drop due to competing against a superior racer (Split Second) and a superior game in general (Red Dead). I did say to my Live mates that this felt like a £20 budget game to start with.

I have heard the A.I is cheap on this and cheats plenty!

as for the price drop, I guess it is because it is a slow seller. UK sales chart on monday will tell us exactly how this game is doing compared to split second.

too many games coming out or dropping into my price range great price though good to see new releases not being overpriced.

HOT! Thanks a lot matey!

I thought it was crap from the Beta test on XB360. Especially as its from the creators of Project Gotham racing.

Hot!
Although I'm currently waiting to rent it from Boomerang.

The demo was great fun.
Trouble with waiting for the price to drop, is that less people will be playing it on Live.

Who'd a thunk that opinions are different eh?

First week sales for this game were poor. #16 in the top 40 on 360 and #32 on PS3. I think the combination of Split/Second and ModNation Racers coming out a week earlier, Forza being available cheap everywhere and still at #28 in the top 40, and other titles like Red Dead Redemption, UFC 2010 and Alan Wake fighting it out for people's hard earned, has lead to the game under-performing. It's a really good game though IMO and if the release date was scheduled a bit better, it would have shifted more copies. The thing that puts me off buying it is the size of the online user base, which isn't that huge now.

The beta is active again on the 360 if anyone wants to try it before buying: -

The 360 has custom soundtracks in ALL games, but I don't think WRXiceman was trying to imply that the PS3 version has an advantage over the 360 version. He was just saying that it has that feature, because it goes without saying that the 360 version will. Thankfully, Blur is a game that performs equally well on both consoles.

World cup just about to start as well may have had something to do with price drop but Red dead must be killing it slowly with it's guns.

Street's like a jungle So call the police Following the herd Down to greece - on holiday

is this a blur karaoke dvd

I think I'll wait for this to drop to £17.99 in the next few weeks.

Only time recently I've paid over £20 for a game was a RDR pre-order @ Tesco.

cex will pay £27 cash for it! so if you buy it and dont like it thats a good option.

Great Price - was waiting for the drop but didn't expect this quickly. Thought Red Dead would keep me going until Blur was sub £25 - but got boared with RDR after 5 hrs play yawwwnnn......

Excellent - thanks OP. Ordered.
Heat & rep added.

As others have said, this looked likely to drop in price pretty quickly, despite it looking quality - but not this quickly!

I'm waiting for mod nation to drop in price as It would just sit sealed like all the other ps3 games sat there at the minute.

metacritic.com/gam…lur 83 score overall, multiplayer meant to be the best part. Graphics are slightly better on 360 over ps3 but I couldn't notice from the screenshots at Eurogamer.

I've played both versions and couldn't notice any difference what so ever.

Great game, great price.

I'm renting this atm, and I'm going to purchase it when I have to return it. 4 of us were playing splitscreen for hours last night, and online is a great laugh too.

I rented this game as I wasn't sure if I'd like it. Its AWESOME! Best racing game I have played to date. Was waiting for price to drop but wow its dropped after a week or so. Hot price. Ordered!:thumbsup:

Excellent price, thanks.

Having got RDR didn't really want to fork out full price for it, but can't resist for £25.
