    Ugh. At 800 MSP it’s a must buy. At 1200, it’s a “Ill wait till it goes on sale” game for me.

    • ElektroDragon

      Isn’t everything lately? Sometimes it pays to wait. Like I just got The Cave for free thanks to Plus yesterday instead of spending $15 for it on Live.

      • Russell Gorall

        I have been doing most of my gaming until BioShock Infinite courtesy of the free PS Plus games.

    • Brad Lavender

      It doesn’t even have “name value” to explain the higher price.

    • Boe2

      So 15 dollars is too expensive, but 10 dollars is reasonable?

      Well, better keep that money then, so can spend it on your next 60 dollar game.

      • ungeheier

        Yup. I’m glad you can read and understand what I was saying. Congrats on your reading comprehension! I havent bought a $60 game in almost a year. Nice try though,

      • Brad Lavender

        $60 games have been $60 games since this console generation started.
        $15-20 games used to be $10-15 games,which used to be $5-10 games.

        Throughout this generation, only the download games have seen rapid inflation. That doesn’t even count HD ports of older games, which are often priced high despite only having a new coat of paint.

        So… yes, some of us choose to wait for the games to drop to a price more in line with their value. Why wouldn’t we?

        • Boe2

          XBLA download games have become more expensive because the quality of those games went up. Compare some of the first XBLA releases with what we get these days.

          • Brad Lavender

            The quality of many disc games has improved, too, but they still come out at $60. As for a lot of the download games, they’re not necessarily 100-200% better than older games are, especially a lot of the retro remakes, HD remakes, and other legacy ports, yet we still get charged big-budget download prices for those.

      • Bennijin

        Or wait for that game to get to a more reasonable price.
        For example, I picked up Metal Gear Rising for £17.98 one month to the day after it released.
        Buying games at launch for full price is a fool’s gambit, be it retail or download.

  • Dagon Furey

    I’ve been waiting for this game to come, looks really good. Downloading now.

  • Russell Gorall

    Why is this dollar Android title fifteen bucks? Basically a rental until the next Xbox comes out, too. Crazy.

  • Sunny Man

    Bought it already during Steam Christmas sale. Sorry.

    • ungeheier

      It looks like it’s on sale on Steam again. Its about half the price of the Xbox version.

  • z0rk

    I like the demo, and I look forward to buying the full game… After they fix the bugs such as the game knocking me off of live every time it starts, and the one I’ve been told about where it resets achievements every time too. Hard to believe either of those made it past QA.

  • ElektroDragon

    This is good, but only 800 points good. *sigh*

  • Fred

    This was a surprise for me. Great looking game, neat hook, and proved to be alot of fun in the demo. Can anyone vouch for the difficulty of the full game? Is it “Super Meat Boy” hard, or something much more accessible?
