    Monkey Island is an absolute bargain for 800 points, I was expecting 1200 for the redone graphics, music and added voice work.

    It’s one of the few games I’ll be buying without even getting the trial first.

    Monkey Island FTW! I can’t wait for this. Loved the PC came and I’m thrilled that I’ll be enjoying an update of it for a mere 800 points.🙂

    800 points for Monkey Island == automatic buy

    I have no idea what Madballs in….Babo Invasion is, but it’s a really stupid title. I’ll check it out, though.

    WOW 800 points, i was expecting this to be at least 1200 if not 1600 points.
    Well done lucasarts or whoever decided to price it at 800 points, i can see this shifting alot of copies at that price. And i’ll be buying some points so i can purchase it once its out.

    Nice to see everyone else thinking the 800 points price is a bargin as well🙂

    I was actually worried that the asking price for Monkey Island was going to be 1200 points, so glad that it’s five dollars cheaper than what I expected it to be! I can’t wait to play this!

    Very happy with the Monkey Island price, I have 950 points and was fully expecting to have to top them up so I’m happy for once ;D

    Seems to me like the last few weeks line-up is far better than this years summer of arcade. Only Trials HD and Shadow Complex are the only titles worth the price for me.

    Whereas in the last couple of weeks we’ve had Worms 2 800pts (good value), BF 1943 1200pts (again good value)and now Monkey Island at 800pts. This years promotion will almost certainly get nowhere near the sales as last year, someone should get a good talking to for that!

    Nice, I was very much expecting Monkey Island to be 1200 and therefore a no buy, although i could see the legitimacy of that price point. I just spent money on worms 2 and BF 1943 though soooo…later…

    Secret of Monkey Island at 800 points is a must buy. I was expecting 1200 since this (sadly) looks like the new norm.

    Will be great to re-play the game again. It’s been many years since last time I play it.

    Awesome awesome, and even better at 800msp. Does it include the copy protection system from the Amiga and PC with that spindle and faces that was a bugger to photocopy (to preserve the original naturally).

    Anyway here is an awesome music remix to enjoy in the meantime
