anyone noticed the price of spore?
« on: September 03, 2006, 06:14:41 am »
its only £26.99,   £26.99!

thats very cheap for a game from EA that has so much hype, a game usually costs about £34.99, is this evidence that there will be an expansion that is kind of a "spore: part 2" that will cost £11.99  and will in effect be selling us one game for just under £40? which is very very expensive for a game

isn't that something like 40 buck US? It isn't suprising. Most games come out for 40-50 dollars

Umm, that's because you're converting £40   ;)

sorry  :P   , but my point is still important, the game plus expansion would cost  $76 (£40)  and the normal game alone price comes to 50(£26), with the expansion costing $26 (£11)

that seems like what EA would charge, (you also have to take into consideration that things generally cost more in the uk so £26.99 is very cheap for a brand new game that has alot of hype such as spore)

No matter how much it costs, I'll probably be spending more when I upgrade my video card.

So, that's about 50 US bucks. Sounds pretty average for a game.
