Weekend Chat, June 22


It's the weekend and while we aren't particularly working unless there is some sort of breaking news, mega-story, that doesn't mean you can't chat. So if you are about and fancy a some gaming related talk then you know what to do.

Gonna take a break from my survivor playthrough on the last of us and finish the god awful remember me. Also, got my hands on a copy of stoker last night. My most anticipated film this year (behind Snowpiercer) and I missed it at the cinema. So hoping to tuck into that later

been bugging me for a few days but micrrosoft and sony have said the next gen games will cost the same as current gen. so why is everywhere's prices completely different? have seen prices range from £45 to £65. havent seen 1 place where the games are £39.99......discuss.

The RRP for most games Tino is £49.99. You will find that after a while they will come down in most places but i would expect them to stay that way until after christmas. I have noticed that the cheapest ones seem to be the xbox exclusives which are at £45 which i noticed are slowly (Ryse)ing up the charts. For this weekend i will be on animal crossing and the FF14 beta may get round to completing dragons dogma as well.

maybe the RRP is £49.99 but i can honestly say i have never paid more than £45 for a current gen game and that £45 has always been for a special edition version, 95% of games i have bought for both xbox and ps3 have been £39.99 All i want to know really is what the price will be for the next gen games. i dont want to pre-order somewhere at £50 or even £45 if i end up being out of pocket before i even get the game.

Will be playing AC mainly today with the odd bit of Luigi U now and again. My feelings on Luigi U are pretty mixed at the moment, I'm enjoying it but the time limit on every level is so frustrating, and rules out any sort of exploring for secrets, plus it seems a lot harder than Mario U, and that got pretty tough, so I'm dreading the later worlds. I need some more AC friends to come visit, anyone want to add me my friends code is 1504-5680-9111 and I will be opening up my village gates for visitors at 3pm.

Pre-ordered the PS4 about 2 weeks ago, what are the chances of getting it on launch day? Do you think there will be a shortage or will people who pre-ordered all get their console on launch? Killzone, FIFA and drive club will be the games I buy on launch day. I am not sure what other games are released before christmas.
tony7 10 months ago
If they didn't have enough then they would stop taking pre-order, you should be fine.
Whitey 10 months ago
Thank You :) didn't think anyone knows how many consoles they will have though just yet

@tino first, Sony and MS have only confirmed that prices won't be changing in the US. The UK isn't confirmed yet. Also, don't forget, just because you pay 35-40 now, that's not RRP. RRP is generally 50 quid (55 for games like cod) so if nothing changes, you'll be paying RRP. Also remember, that until bulk costs are confirmed, shopto (and others) have no idea how much they will be able to sell games for and still turn a profit. More so, if they have the price too low and have to raise it, you'll be screaming blue murder when your pre-order prices go up wont you? They are just place holders. A few weeks before and a few weeks after the next gen releases, you'll see the prices level out. On another note. Just started FUSE. Not bad. Pretty average. I reckon I'll have forgotten the beginning of the mission by the times get to the end of it, it's just generic.

@tino55 Although I agree with you on pricing, if you remember when the PS3 was first releases the games were all £49.95 or thereabouts, and they took a while to come down. like @Richard I've preordered the PS4 and a game and will wait for the prices to drop a bit before buying any more games. My PS+ subscription will tide me over till then.

Had a good time watch the rugby this morning. My 32gb memory card for my PS Vita arrived in the post today and I've copied over Uncharted GA, and Rayman origins over to my Vita. Going to have a go on them later. I've also be grinding on TLOU multiplayer to get trophies, which is taking quite a while to do.
Spear 25 10 months ago
Adding to what tino55 has said, I've been thinking the same thing. Infact Sony have been saying for months now that one of the most important facts about the PS4 is that it's pretty much a PC in all but name and has been made that way after talks with the majority of game developers and that it will enable them to develop for the PS4 much easier, quicker and cheaper than in the past, and it won't be much different than developing the PC version. That being the case, then why is it that when you look at all the PS4 titles that are also multi-format, the pricing for the PS4 version is around £54 and yet the PC version is around £30 !? Talk about double standards, that's total BS from my perspective. Although I have no interest in the XBoxOne the same applies there too. It's a clear case of Sony and Microsoft ripping us off yet again by charging far and beyond what the games actually cost to make.

I'll have to echo what Brooker said (Troublemaker) that the prices right now are placeholders. Also you would know why PC games are cheaper if you did you research, the console makers aren't making consoles out the goodness of their heart , they make consoles so that publishers can pay them from the rights to put their games on their console. It goes Outlet>Manufacturer>Publisher.Developer, PC games skip on one of those steps (Cookie if you can guess what one)
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Oh and hands up the people who actually know what a RRP is
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Oh there's a fun fact I found out today, I know RRP is Recommended Retail Price (any cookies Nox?) I was on xbox this afternoon and went on to reserve the xbox one just to see if they were offering anything shopto wasn't.... Anyway where it had £429.99 it had ERP. Just guessing that's Estimated Retail Price, anyone think they may change the price?
b3ddo3 10 months ago
Also another thing that makes PC games a bit cheaper is that there arent any trade ins for them and they are mostly digital over the physical copies.

Well was going to complete Dragons Dogma but when i turned it on to load it up my save was gone and i only have the option for new game which sucks. So i decided to get back to dark souls and after deciding i didnt really like my knight character i started again as a wanderer it makes such a difference being faster to get behind enemies and i have been flying through it i have just rung the first bell.
