    I urge everyone to try this game. It’ll make you smile 😀


  • BloodOmen360

    Actually, it made me cry once I saw the price, since I really wanted this game. Where I live 1200 points is 14,4 Euros, roughly 19 dollars at today’s rate, I just bought Prince of Persia with the Epilogue included for the PS3 for a friend for less than that, shipped from the UK!! Maybe we’ll get in next years Deal of the Week…

    For all I like most of the arcade games the new price points, 1600/1200 are ridiculous compared to 800/400 of days gone by.

    After a couple of months you can pick up most FULL games for around this price if you shop around and don’t mind pre-owned and then you can part-ex when you’re done as well!

    No way I’m dropping this much ANY game I can’t recycle!


  • VILIUS169

    1200 Microsoft Points too much.sorry


  • Helvedeshunden

    I don’t care how cute the game is. Only game I’d even consider getting at 1200 out of the announced titles = Out Run. And I already have that for original Xbox so it’d be quite a thing to swallow.

    Get with the reality already!


  • BlackDwarf

    I was all for adding this to my queue, until I saw the fact its 1200. Come on guys, you’ve all seen the excitement over this. I won’t be picking it up on principle.


  • Indigo0086

    Sorry, if Dishwasher Dead Samurai was pretty much a joint effort by MS to make into an Arcade game and costs only 800 points, no way I’m going to get this at 1200. I’ll wait until it’s a daily deal. Honestly what is capcom thinking, having released Bionic Commando: Re Armed at 800. Seriously raising prices during this time does not make gamers happy.


  • dazCtenby

    Been playing it for a bit, is quite addictive, think the price is a bit steep, maybe capcom might be bringing out some free downloadable content to justify the price?? seen a clip of blanka being used in game maybe more?. Only worry ive had is not able to upload/download or share my own levels ive created, and the game CRASHES my xbox wen i try to look at friends leaderboard!!!!!



    Major, how come this wasn’t advertised as the 200th game??? please answer!!!


  • Stonie uk

    Nope, sorry. This game interested me when I saw it previewed last year, it looked kind of fun. That was right up until I saw the ridiculous and unfunny price point.

    What is it with these price hikes? I shall see what price point this is on the European PSN when it gets released tomorrow, if it’s cheaper, I’ll get it on that. I already pay for my Live subscription because the console and and Live service is far better than PS3, but when prices start to get hiked up 50%, you need to start putting your custom elsewhere and make sacrifices.

    Microsoft, you are starting to lose me as a customer.


  • SalamanderSkill

    1200ms points is a flocking joke! No way am I paying 1200 flocking points for an arcade game… Boo Nelson! Boo!!


  • Indigo0086

    I think you guys should be careful, you don’t want the VP of capcom ridiculing you for complaining. Either way I’d like to see the sales numbers at the end of the month.


  • Der Archivar

    While PC users get cheaper retail games, Flock costs on Steam the same.


  • tabicat

    I’ll wait until the price drops to 800 points.

    GOD SAKE MICROSOFT your are a Joke.

    This 1200 / 1600 points an arcade game, is stupid now.


    What do get off charging stupid prices for crappy arcade games ?

    I thought the idea of the arcade was cheap and cheerful games you could pick up and play and not feel your pocket emptying ??

    but no, the prices are a joke, I’m not and haven’t bought any arcades titles at the moment and won’t until you review the there prices.

    What happened to 400 / 800 points ???

    oh sorry you still need to make money, yer so do we all.

    I’d bet you’d sell more if you put prices to a better level, but no you won’t cos you like making a console that doesn’t work properly then ripping your consumers off with over priced content.

    One well pissed customer.


  • Turtle502

    I’ll try it, because I’m curious. Buy it, probably not. Looks like I’ll just go back to playing/finishing up some of the games I already have instead of spending more…


  • r3dreck

    >I urge everyone to try this game. It’ll make you smile 😀

    Try… not buy for 1200 points.


  • LittleBlueAlien

    game: yes.
    price: no.


  • oue

    MAJOR: WHERE IS LIVE Activity for week of March 30???


  • Danowat32

    You can, at the moment, pick up Mirrors Edge for the same price as Flock……..the mind boggles.

    Retail outlets understand that we are in a period of finincial instability, and as such, price their wares accordingly.

    Quite why the XBLA feels its above this is beyond me.

    Developer: Proper Games
    Publisher: Capcom

    I don’t know exactly how price is determined, but I get the feeling that 1200 pt price might be because of the Publisher in this case…
    Unfortunately the one to suffer is the Developer, because there’s no way I’d ever buy this at that price either.

    Capcom got a huge hit at 1200 pts (Street Fighter II HDR), and they think they can sell everything at this now it seems.


  • exprohound

    i agree with danowat32, cmon ms give the consumer a break


  • Warrengonline

    Awww, don’t say that. Capcom is NOT GREEDY. Street Fighter III: New Generation, Street Fighter III 2nd Impact and Street Fighter III 3rd Strike somewhat bombed on release dates in the arcade. I’m a street fighter fan and when I saw those games, I was confused – as many other gamers. It went underground and now that most of us have evolved, SF3 is becoming slowly mainstream int he likes of SFII. With that said, they are going to try to make losses. I do think this game is worth its 1200 price tag, but…. Am I willing to play that much for lemmings with an alien flocking sheep? Maybe, maybe not. I’m on the fence, someone just needs to say the right words and I’m pushed off.


  • darkjester74

    Once again, 1200 MSP is the equivalent price for Flock on other platforms (i.e. Steam) And again, I am baffled as to why people believe MS should charge something different than what everyone else is charging.



    1200 points = no purchase, especially when we’ll get a 400 point dlc pack in a month.
