Would $70 games deter you from buying?

Have you tried redbox? $2 a day is a pretty sweet deal, especially for games with relatively short single play campaigns.

if the game itself is worth it yeah im more than willing to pay another $10 just for the graphics. Im already picky about what I buy so nothing new there but if 3 games I want come out the same day or something then well have a problem but thats never happened before

No. If I wanted a game day 1 I'd still buy it day 1. Allowing for inflation it's less than I was paying for games 20 years ago.


I hate this stupid response. inflation this inflation that. I don't care. if games were $70 I would not buy them at that price. I will have an easy time waiting on prices to drop. Also this is why steam is awesome

Hmmm, not really. I know that none of you will remember because you're new to gaming, seeing as how you're talking about the 360, but games on the SNES (that's "Super Nintendo Entertainment System") would commonly cost $60-$70.

All trolling aside, yeah, it really would.

The severe lack of actual thought in this post disturbs me.

I'd gladly dish out $70 if it means I'm guaranteed a copy of one my anticipated releases on release day, games like MH4, RF4, or ZE3 I'd throw money at in a heartbeat.
