    I created an account here simply to say that I am 100% certain that I and nobody on my friends list will be stupid enough to use Games on Demand at these prices.

    I mean seriously. OVERPRICED AVATAR ITEMS, OVERPRICED ARCADE GAMES, OVERPRICED GAMES ON DEMAND and OVERPRICED THEMES/GAMERPICTURES. This, in a service we STILL have to pay £40 a year for and soon you’re gonna be adding ADVERTS to our dashboards?!!?

    Every single day the PS3 starts looking a better option.

    Microsoft really loves to push people. Lower the prices of these Games on Demand and the hardrive.

    Change your motto to “Lower Avatar Prices!” or “Lower G.O.D Prices”

    This overpriced BS cant go on.


  • Chambece

    To be honest, I am not too bothered about the avatar prices, I know I probably won’t be buying them,but if I wanted something, I would get it…
    The thing is for that, you’ve not got a choice, but you have for the GoD, and at the mo, however much I would like to use it, I’m not going to at the price. However, something I have thought of, if you could get these on a sort of rental basis, then may be if the price was right, I would love such a service…. Thing is, would it be at a decent price.. 😦

    If this is how MS is considering deploying digital content next gen, I’m out. Anything in the Platinum Hits catalog should be $5 less than retail, at a minimum, to compensate for the lack of manual and non-trade-ability. Epic fail on this gauging/gouging experiment (that’s not a typo – MS is gauging sales, while simultaneously gouging customers).

    Velox Equitatus: we already get ads…

    $30 for the original saints row? Are you guys off your rockers??

    Digital Distribution = CHEAPER than retail. CHEAPER! How hard is that to understand? We know damn well the money you guys AREN’T having to spend just selling digital copies of this. We expect those savings passed on to us.

    I’m a fan of digital distribution but not when you guys are purposely trying to screw over your customers like this.

    Too expensive. They are $19.99 at Target, or $6.99 used at Gamestop.


  • ImaginedBug

    Twilight Now: over here in the Netherlands there are no ads on the dash. I wouldn’t be surprised if there are only a few territories that do have them as the market in Europe is too splintered 🙂

    Major, could you try to talk to someone in charge of the pricing and let us know what possesses them to charge (for example) $19.99 for BF:BC in the US and €29.99 (equivalent of $43!) in the Netherlands? It’d be nice to at least get an official word on why Microsoft doesn’t want to sell these games. Why else would the prices be so ridiculously high and have such huge differences per region?
    I know there was something about each region setting its own prices, but doesn’t anyone at Microsoft think that’s strange and counter-productive?

    I got Rockstar Table Tennis at PC World Basingstoke last October for £4.97. Come on, Microsoft, time for a re-think. I wouldn’t mind giving Games on Demand a go, but not at these prices.


  • HFC

    I had to remind myself how bad the pricing was by looking yesterday… $69.95 Australian Dollars (around 35 GBP) for Table Tennis. I also noted that you are only one inadvertant button press away from selecting this if your CC details are on your machine.

    On a positive note….spend your cash on Shadow Complex. Now that is VFM IMO !
