What is the price of a "full priced game"?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - What is the price of a "full priced game"?

So as the title  says really, what is the price? Because I see alot off people ragging on specifically Twilight Princess HD but others too. Saying this game is a joke at full price blah blah except I just payed 55 euros ( £40 with exchange rate) for the game, a nice cd and the amiboo. I only really wanted the game and cd which seemed worth it at 40 pound!

So is 40 pound the price off a " full game" because I'm sure black ops, fifa etc are atleast 50 pound on release so what's the deal?

Yeah, I'd say £40 is full price. Some companies have tried to take advantage of the fact a new gen has started and tried to charge more than that (often up to £50, same thing actually happened at the start of the 7th gen), but if you look round a bit you can usually find most games for around £40. Although PSN and XBL are often much higher than that, I've seen some games on there for £60 which is just insane.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I count any game above €30 as “full priced“ nowadays.



I payed $68 AUD for the amiibo bundle, SUCK IT MURICA



Depends. At least $30 for handheld and at least $40-50 for console.



bet: lost

They seem to release at £50 then drop really quick. Whereas Nintendo's games seem cheaper but never drop in price 😠! 40 pound doesn't seem bad though for TPHD with CD and amiboo



It can be 80$ here in Canada. Some 74.99, but still. Absolutely expensive here...



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

It's pure insanity. It's DIGITAL aswell, they can't even claim it to be shipping costs.

in black ops and fifa went alot more work then into this. This was a retexturing and upscaling of an old game. Thats it.

If you get Halo: MCC for 50 bucks (4-5 games), just getting TPHD for the same feels ALOT overprieced.
