Let me guess, people will defend the 720's "no used/always online" schemes?

$70 games?


$70 games today = $60 games in 2005 = $52 games in 2000 = $46 games in 1995 = $38 games in 1989 = $33 in 1985 = $22 in 1979.

It's pretty much in line with the price of games at the start of every new generation since the beginning of the cartridge era.


In the begining of the 2000 century i could have accepted a price like that maybe ibut NOT in 2013.I refuse to pay 700 bucks for a unfinishied game. That will have 10 dlc's .That should've been in the game from the begining,but they took em out because they're greedy capitalists . Hi Ea and Capcom im looking at you two .

I still remember that stupid PS3 rumor about disc blocking that never came true.

If congress has the right under the Constitution to issue paper money, it was given them to use themselves, not to be delegated to individuals or corporations.

and according to your logic we should be paying 50 bucks for music cd's? xd

Also there is the case that since it has become a mainstream entertainment, production costs have gone down and sales are up so in ANY business that would lead to prices dropping ;)

But you are a corporate slave which I have on ignore anyways but everytime Im warned and can see you're post I see you posting something DEFENDING money grubbing, scamming or anything else that hurts consumers.

Its not a matter of defending those practices. I just don't think it will happen. Why get get your panties into a twist over it?

No reason not to defend it, there's nothing wrong with it.

There is sufficient time that if we make our voices heard now and raise enough of a stink, they may choose to forego any of these things. You never know.


Yes, the executives of billion dollar corporations care about the stink of Gamefaqs forum posters.

Really. They do. No lie. Meetings about the posts every morning in their board rooms. I swear!
