    So it’s pretty much only available in the UK? -.-

    Sorry, just read my comment and it seems as though I am saying UK does not matter. No disrespect, just agreeing with Andrew’s comment on posting “Not available in…” rather than “Only available in…”

    To be fair, it seems like it’s available in most of Europe, as only Germany is on the list. Then again it doesn’t matter, because no-one will buy it anyway.

    Yay. More over priced GoD. When will Microsoft ever learn?

    Hahaha… $30 for GRAW? Wasn’t this a close-to-launch title? It’s not a “platinum” game; it’s an “old-n-grey” game. It’s really a shame that GoD is being handled so poorly. It really had the potential to completely supplant all my current games. I’d gladly pay $10 for the ability to not switch out discs. Hmm, maybe that could be the next big NXE update? It worked for Rock Band tracks…

    As always: I don’t like the price, so I’m not buying. Same old, same old.

    I’m really confused on the pricing structure of these games on demand. Why on earth would anyone pay more for a downloadable, DRM shackled piece of software than they would for simply buying the disc at the game store for less and not have those restrictions?

    This Games on Demand program is horrible. Games should be LESS than you can buy a physical copy of the game for. There’s no manufacturing costs, and the limitations means it’s worth less. So a game I can get for $20 in physical form (and take to a friends house, trade in, etc…) should be half the price if I’m downloading it into a restrictive environment on my system.

    Just my thoughts.

    Guys, not that I’m playing devil’s advocate or anything, but from a marketing perspective this makes total sense. First of all, Microsoft has to be mindful of retailers. They can’t under price the retailers too much (not that that they have thus far). Second, this is like anything else where Microsoft is market skimming and in essence, getting top dollar from the people who don’t mind paying a premium for convenience. Yes, there are people who will buy a game for $40 even if they can go down the street and nab it for $20. Third, its easier for Microsoft to gradually drop the price than it is for them to increase the price. Eventually these games will come down in price. Microsoft is slowly learning what the market will bear and once they find that happy medium, more titles will be priced appropriately. Just think of the backlash there would be from retailers if Microsoft priced these titles at like $10-15. Imagine the backlash from the community if they raised the priced to $20-$25. It sucks for us right now, but its a smart move on Microsoft’s part.

    $30 for GRAW 1??!?!?!!? Major, please tell me, how many people are actually stupid enough to buy any of the GoD games?

    This is just more overpriced crap from Microsoft.

    GoD really is such a major disappointment as a service, games on offer are just not enough, some are skipped in some regions (no Bioshock where I am for example), and of course pricing is just way off…

    The most annoying thing on this website is when people are crying about prices. If you don’t like it don’t buy it. But now I will shed my 2 cents. GoD prices are hilarious. You can’t resell the game once you are done with it. Should be cheaper when it’s in digital form. Oh well.

    $30? Really?
    .
    Amazon lists GRAW at under $20 with free shipping.
    .
    In fact, Amazon lists GRAW 2 at $14.99 with free shipping.
    .
    So – why would I pay $30 for the really old launch title when I could get the sequel for half the price?
    .
    Will some people buy it? Sure. The question is, are you servicing your CORE customer? No. The only people that are going to buy a game this old for double the market price are people who have absurd amounts of disposable income.

    It’s save to say that no a single microsoft point of mine will be spent on any of this old crap at new game prices. Like most things in the marketplace, it’s a rip-off.

    Major, this would be a good topic for you to discuss on your podcast, the GoD service, how/who selects what games go on the service and at what price point. Would be a good interview if you could get someone to do it.

    And I obviously agree with everyone here, why would I pay $30 for GRAW when I can buy it new on Half.com for $7.75?

    Ridiculously high GoD pricing is ridiculously high. Major, honestly how can you sit in meetings with MS officials and keep a straight face on this pricing? You have your finger on the pulse of gamers and this is still allowed to happen? I am amazed.
