Also anyone complaining about the price of games today is a young gamer. A very young gamer at that. Those of us who have been around know that $60 for a game, and $400-$600 for a launch console, is nothing compared to what we used to pay. I still remember dishing out $80 for Super Castlevania IV when that came out in '91. That was when you could still get a hamburger at McDonald's for 25 cents.


Wow dude...where did you live? SNES games were usually $50. There were definitely extreme cases, though.

Anyway, blame the App Store. Anything more than 99 cents on there is met with looks of disbelief.

What? You pooped in the refrigerator? And you ate the whole... wheel of cheese? How'd you do that? Heck, I'm not even mad; that's amazing.

I live in NA. $80 was a tad higher than normal I remember, but it wasn't even close to the highest. I remember Phantasy Star II was over $100 at launch.

just die already sony

wow, the hatred.. so much..


To be fair, it is somewhat justified. Sony is trying sabotage themselves it seems. I'm honestly curious how you any other devoted Sony supporters feel about them doing this.


This.

What a stupid thing to do.

"They should research how to get first-hand game sales before doing this."

LOL

And Sony has been trying to kill used game sales for a long time now. This is not surprising. We'll see how long it takes for them to actually accomplish this without pissing off most of their remaining fanbase.


Sony is only of many who have been trying to stop used game sales. unlike piracy, selling a game used, actually screws the developers over.

wanting someone or anyone to die is never justified.


completely false. People who commit crimes against humanity deserve to die. But that's a different argument.
