I may be getting old, but that over £40 is good now saddens me
In this day and age unless you absolutely must play a game on release for whatever reason I see no reason to spend £40 plus on a game.

well you can be that old as a lot snes, n64 games where this price or more and if you take in inflation as well it would be even more.

£40 is been pretty much the standard price for new releases for years now

But back then many games held their price. Not much the case now unless it's a Nintendo exclusive.

so you wait , it doesn't get away from the fact that games have actually gotten cheaper which all these post would have us believe they have gotten more expensive. also the cost of making most games back then were a lot less than today.

Hasnt this always been true? Older = cheaper... Not just for this day and age
Games may be more expensive to make now but your only buying a shell. Most game have exclusive editions, micro transactions and season passes, games company's have never been richer.
Is this with the £5 pre order discount applied ?.
£40!!

Bargain, I remember paying £60 for Star Fox Japanese import to play on my US SNES.

Another reason to play GOW 3 remastered again on my PS4 Pro

Difference being though that games no longer hold their value like they used to, with the odd exception eg GTA V.

I can think back to a time when, say import Street Fighter 2 SNES cartridges would hold their value for many months, but those days are long gone, especially with the era of downloads.

I haven’t paid full whack for a long time, the last ‘new release’ I picked up (SOTC) I managed to get heavily discounted with 48 hours of release.

Its GoW we r talkin about.
If anything, video games have gotten significantly cheaper.
I used to beg for a single game at Christmas because they were so relatively expensive £49.99+
Games are much cheaper compared to wages nowadays.

£60 n64 games? I paid £40 for Ps1 games 20 years ago. I think people seriously undervalue video games in this day and age, we're really spoilt for choice.
For over 30 hours of a good game that's the actual good price. Compare it do Digital editions of recent multiplayer games as Fifa or destiny which are atrociously expensive... Good find!

Most games are long enough that I don't want to keep playing as soon as the credits roll. How many games do you think to yourself you need to have the dlc to get enough out the game? I don't think I can think of any where the base game hasn't satisfied me.

If you play FIFA for 500 hours over the course of a year and it costs £50, is that not good value?

I worked in games retail for 10 years and I did buy £60 snes games, but it's 2018 and the market is not the same

This game is an exception and Kratos would tear you a new one had he not been fictional.

You can't be that old. SNES games were typically £45 on release and sold for £25 second hand. That's £85 new, £47 used in today's money when adjusted to inflation.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ll be buying it (not at £40) and playing it, but I don’t think this title has the pull that you think it does to warrant splurging £40 on day one.

I agree with this, I haven’t purchased any form of DLC to date, I simply don’t have the time or desire for it. Also people talk about games having 60 to 90 hours of gameplay - Open world games being a case in point. There’s far too much emphasis placed on collectibles and trophy hunting for my liking, ie too much padding out, and there needs to be more focus on the story. If you look at the main story element specifically, some of these games are actually very short. Driving/flying around maps and collecting items or completing unnecessary secondary missions bores me to tears.

Yup, when I was a kid a got like 5 games a year bought for me, length was very important. As an adult, I buy so many games that I find myself not buying particular games because I know they are long and would never finish them. I bought the game of the year edition of horizon, took me 30 hours to do the main story line, and that was enough, little desire to the dlc area. Witcher 3's dlc was worth it and I tend to buy all the characters for the fighting games I like but other than I tend not to buy dlc.

If it is the choice between a £40 season pass or everyone paying £10 more I choose the former. Let the people who actually want to spend more spend more is my view.

I agree with this. Pad your games out til your hearts content for people who want it, but don't make the time constrained go grinding just to be powerful enough to progress.

Yep. The only DLC that I have ever bought was for Bioshock Infinite and Bioshock 2. I've had bundled DLC that I started and never finished as it was merely more of the same (e.g. Arkham City). Even though I found Zelda BOTW amazing, I've had enough after 110 shrines and 120 hours. I might pretend that the remaining 10 orbs are DLC, one day, maybe... though probably not.
I need this but I must finish Horizon first, looks like the missus and kids won't be seeing much of me lol

I remember when Street Fighter came out on the Mega drive, and you HAD to buy a six Button pad. Can't imagine the feelings police enjoying that!

I honestly think £40 is a bargain for a game. We spend almost £10 on a two-hour film at the cinema, or £15 on a two-hour blu-ray. Many games last more than twenty hours - value for money!

It's over 40...
mikewadkins3510 h, 16 m ago

It's over 40...


My point still stands though. Even if games were £50 and lasted twenty hours (Persona 5 took me 134 hours) that's only £2.50 an hour vs. approx. £5 per hr for a movie.
Best price out there for this so I’m happy to get at launch for this price. Thanks OP.
Cheapest price for the game, granted - however if you're a Amazon Prime customer and use the Google Chrome extension deal (posted somewhere on this site) you can get it delivered for a quid less... When Amazon stock it again, that is
