It's not really fair to compare the price of a Steam title to the console version.

Played it for an hour so far. Interesting game.

sure it is, but £40 for a pc game you can't resale is a truly awful deal

£41 through Amazon prime now using 'save5'(assuming it's available in your area)

Not to mention the up to £1000 initial cost of buying a decent gaming computer keyboard mouse monitor. One of the key benefits that games were like 20-27 quid when I was in my teens, while console games were from 40.

Oh how times have changed.

At no point in the deal did it state this was for console or have an image.

Just like Minecraft...
Oh wait, it's still full price precisely because there is no end to it

To be fair, it will drop because it's beginning to form polar opinions but like other forms of art, it comes down to taste, not just "good" or "bad".

It's not worth £40

I will wait till it drops to £20.

Meh this game is average. Don't pay full price. Inventory management sim 2016. About as deep as a puddle.

Please tell me you're kidding? You don't need to spend £1000 on a computer. If you're going to factor in the cost of a monitor I assume you're going to factor in the cost of a TV for a console too? And who doesn't have a keyboard and mouse lying around?

Please don't perpetuate that myth. A PC that matches (or exceeds) the spec of a PS4 costs.... the same as a PS4. The whole "can't game unless your PC cost £1k+" thing is complete nonsense.

That's unfair to compare it like that.

First off PS4 titles RRP at £50-60, PC games RRP generally around the £40-50 mark. To compare them any other way on a newly released title is invalid because it's down to the retailer as to the price they sell it for. Thus why there's up to £15 of price difference on NMS depending where you choose to buy it.

I have a PS4 (among a large range of older consoles from the last 30years) and a gaming/HTPC which cost me about £500 and it outperforms the PS4 in all the titles I've tried that are multiplatform and plays anything at FHD.

Needing a monitor.... well we might as well add the requirement to buy a TV to the price when getting a console so that's a non issue. If you're going to say that a console player likely already has a TV then I return with a PC player likely also will have a TV that they can plug their computer into.

Need a decent gaming keyboard and mouse. No you don't I am quite happy to most of the time use a Logitech K400 + either a PS4/XB1 controller. Gives a nice pick up and play experience.

Yes it will be over £1000 if you want to have an i7 quadcore with 32gb of RAM, an enormous SSD and dual GTX1080s, but half that price can provide you with a windows based PC that can play any game in full HD on high or even max detail with antialiasing which will be vastly more detailed compared to the same title on a current generation console.

Edit: I'm going to like comments in this thread that actually don't perpetuate stupid myths as for some reason your ridiculous comment doesn't deserve them.

​I have a mouse but no keyboard as I haven't had a desktop pc in over a decade. Also to play devil's advocate a TV is a much more common household item as it is not just used for consoles....although a pc could also use it.

​A game isn't automatically worth less because the company making isn't worth millions, if it has the amount of content it claims then it's fair enough.

You don't need to spend that much on a gaming computer... I have a laptop that I got for 600 quid on offer and it can easily run the latest games. You don't need 120FPS @4K. And obviously, a laptop can do a lot more than a PS4.

But I'm sure you knew that already.

What do you mean the amount of content? It's all procedurally generated, so it's not even "content" in the traditional sense. It's stuff that has been generated via algorithms and a relatively small data set. The volume of actual content is obviously a lot less than any AAA game out there.

The price doesn't have to be cheap, though. The right price is the price people are willing to pay, and judging from the initial reaction, I think people are buying the game in droves. Whether it's actually WORTH that price, is a different thing altogether and depends on the individual. For me, it's not worth 40 quid and that's why I haven't bought it.

The fact is, though, that a game created in a basement by 10 people in 4 years obviously doesn't require millions of sales at 40 quid to recuperate the development costs, unlike (some) AAA games, so in that sense you could argue it's expensive for what it is.

Yea I suppose you are right, I should have said if you pay £44 for ANY game then you are nuts. Especially as it is just for the bog standard game in a box with no extras. Even the majority of AAA studio games are not £44.

​OK content is maybe the wrong word but potential play time could be quite a lot if the game appeals to you.

The cost of development means nothing to me, I have played AAA games that I feel are worth £10 at best (the Order 1886 springs to mind) and indies that I would think are worth significantly more than their asking price (Bastion and Rogue Legacy spring to mind)

No AAA games are £44...well unless you buy all your game from Game that is I'm not sure about the game myself so I won't pay that but if it is your type of game the hours it may give you make it a pretty decent £/hr ratio.

Its not the publishers saying it, its the lead creator of the whole project, are you seriously that challenged you cant spend a minute to read something properly. The game has a few issues, but you are talking complete rubbish and need to at least see that. This type of arrogance is what plagues forums all across the internet, because people dont read and then spout nonsense about things they know nothing about.

Sure, but if indie games were more expensive, a lot less people would discover the little gems in the first place. Now they are cheap enough to lead to an impulse buy, something that I'm not feeling for NMS.

Also, AAA games can't afford to not be sold at full price. It doesn't matter if you think they are worth that price, the point is they need to at least break even and make a small profit. NMS is just my friend Sean and his pals thinking they can get away with it. And they will.
