Would you pay $20 more for games...

Like everyone else, Steam has spoiled me. $20 is my top line for games, but I would prefer to not spend more than $5 or $10. The way I see it, why should I pay $60 for a game when it will eventually come down to $20 at some point? Except for Skyrim...

Skyrim was like $12 a week or two ago on GameFly. :P

But yeah...Unless it's a game I *really* want, and fully plan on playing ASAP, I really don't have much desire to rush out and pay more than $30 usually. Much less $70-80 ($50/$60+$20).

No. $59.99 is plenty to pay for a video game. It's not like games are worth paying that much anymore like they were in the early 1990s.

Not only wouldn't I pay $20 more, I wouldn't pay normal price. Since there is no resell value with digital games, they would have to take $20 OFF the price for me to think about it.

If they were available (digitally) for all of your consoles? Not sure how it would work, whether it's a developer/host registration that would allow for an account the item(s) are registered to be available universally for all consoles where those particular games are available, or if you would get codes for the items (which would be easily exploitable).

Just as a general question though...would it be worth it if they jacked up the general video game price by $20 if it were available for all of your consoles? Personally, I would do it depending on the time of release. If I could wait for sales and get them cheaper separately, I would. But if I want say...Battlefield 4 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC, and Playstation 4 to play with my various friend groups...I'd be flat-out broke between all of my consoles and games.

Nowadays I buy all of my games for PC, but I still have friend groups in other consoles. The downgrades don't exactly constitute extra spending...so I was curious how others feel about this who face a similar situation.


I find that too expensive. Maybe if its like the equivalent of about 10$

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it

No. Digital games should be at least $20 cheaper at all times anyway. Most games I will play until I'm tired of it and then its out of my mind for a decade or a dry spell in good releases. Not worth extra money to have 2 choices instead of one of what old console to dust off and plug up.

These days I won't buy a digital until its under $20 total. Blind buying died for me.
