only if you have low standards and the only games that were ever worth 70 dollars alot of ways were n64 games like turok and n64 wave race and mario kart and mario 64 you know real legend games?

plus cartridges are more durable than blu ray disk, that also was a contributing factor aswell.

And why would you need them to be more durable? Do you sit on your games? Maybe drive your car over them? Who cares if its more durable. I have never, no matter the system, broke a game. Dunno wtf you people are doing with your games if durability is a plus for you.

When you were a kid, it was great to beable to just grab the cartridge and throw it in your pocket and ride over to your friends house and play it on their console so you could play multiplayer.

Wasn't my case. Was pretty gentle with my stuff even when i was a kid cuz i knew that if i broke it, my parents wouldn't buy me a 2nd copy.

kinda hard to fit a big ass game case in your pocket, cartridges are just better all around when it's all said and done.

Stimulus check Xbox gamers don't want to pay for games at all. They've become entitled and believe every game should be given away for $1 just because Microsoft does it with their 4/10 flops.

Don't hate on your fellow stimulus check gamers, after all you are the stimulus check PC gamer.πŸ˜‚

Real reason: people are fanboys enough to buy their consoles blindly, then are stuck paying what Sony wants to charge them instead of the industry standard price.

For starters no one needs to buy a 70$ games, people can wait for discounts, fanboys need to be more worried about micro transactions in video games

Do you cows even play these games or do you just use their review scores to justify your little $500 purchase?

$500 may be little money to cows, but we know $70 is too much for lemmings so let's not rub it in their faces lol.

I'm sure you know this by now, but more than half the posts here on this board are either jest, trolling or flat out lies. You'd be surprised by just how many of these so-called "gamers" don't even own the systems they shill for, haven't played the games at all, hardly play games as a hobby etc.

i mean i dont have problem paying 70bucks for a game as long as its good. other titles have to wait for abit of price drop. gaming is not cheap. some people have to pay thousands of dollar for a gaming rig. whats a mere 70 dollar for a game. even gamepass you have to subscribe to get the service.

Who would bring attention to paying $70, just to spin.

Guilty gear strive is also on the PC and PS4.

FF7 is on the PS4.

Demon Souls is on the PS3.

I thought cows were about the exclusives. :-S

Yet in a recent poll most people said games shouldn't be that price.

Still waiting for anyone to show where the extra money actually goes.

Lol at anonymous polls. We have no idea who voted or how many alts voted. It was likely a bunch of salty broke Xbox fanboys because the sales are in and Sony's $70 bangers have all been successful.

The comments backed up the poll.

Guess you don't get broke/low income cows.

$70 is a lot of money and makes the sale prices also higher than they used to be.

I'd be more happy with it if it was shown the money went to the actual developers on the ground because of the time they put in and not just direct into profits of Sony.

Yea if there wasn't any "pew pew", "vroom vroom" or "grunt grunt", that was like a deal breaker for Xbox fans.

Even Forza never sold well. At least the Motorsport series didn't. Most of them failed to chart on NPD.

All the games that will be shown or announced on Sunday. You know MS has 23 studios all working on games. It's just a matter of time before they start to release.

Everything coming to Game Pass day one as well.

This is all nonsense. It’s basically market research and opportunism. And all these games go on sale for pretty aggressive rates within a year or two. Only suckers like me spend full price, so what does it matter if it’s 70? If your game has DLC or gambling mechanics anyway…what difference does it make? Do you want to ask the typical heavy Warframe fan how much they have spent on the game? It’s all relative, and compared to the shenanigans of other publishers, 70 flat rate isn’t horrible.

What ever happen to breaking the 70 cost over a period of 365 days like lemmings use to do with xbox live subscription?

Damn i miss the old days.

By the way payed more for MK2 and SF2 on Snes in the early 90's when salaries were considerably lower.

That is a Xbox fanny thing? To break up the cost over the year? News to me.

No one cares how much you paid for games over two decades ago. Most games now are $60. If you are willing to pay more for the same games, more power to you. 😎

While tormentos is a resident in Puerto Rico, the situation over their is still a mess from the hurricane back in 2017 and when the former President Trump took office, he never send aid for Puerto Rico and they been suffering ever since. While I don't want to go political here, this is what I'll say. Puerto Rican government had multiple warehouses full of emergency supplies and never gave them to the people despite the Puerto Rican government is the U.S government from a certain point of view.

What has the cost of specific one off games in the 90's got to do with the cost of them now?

Totally different circumstances.

and again what has the cost of access to online gaming got to do with the cost of a game.

Like I said show me all the extra money goes to the actual people who developed the game (those sat seating at a desk) and I wont be bothered.

My nephew gets Β£3 per week pocket money (sometimes Β£5 if he helps round the house), the extra cost impacts him and many others who cant afford the initial price and the sale price is also impacted.

Its total greed until the show otherwise.
