    I’m pretty surprised this exists. I suppose if Black Ops has a demo, though…

    In all seriousness, how much is this usually on the UK marketplace? £40 is the price I expect to pay on launch day at a bricks and mortar store, tbh.

    So, a digital copy for £40 or a boxed copy for £10 that I could resell. Decisions, decisions.

      $600?  Or did you mean $60.  And $899 did you mean like $89.90?  Or does Mexico not use periods in there money and you just have to figure it out?

        LOL – he’s talking about Mexican Pesos. You do realize the rest of the world doesn’t use the American dollar, right? Learn some more about other countries, especially ones you share a border with.

    Well this is immensely unexpected.

    When was the last time a Halo game had a demo? The PC version of Halo CE, I guess…Weird that this just came out of nowhere.

    Seriously major, why is games on demand so expensive?

    If it was priced in line with internet retail we’d actually give a shit.

    £40 for a game that you can buy on disc for less than £25? Also, there’s no excuse for the UK to get so shafted on the price. Sure, we have VAT at 20% but if you add 20% to the US price it works out at about £30. Why is the pricing not more competitive with retail? I understand that you might not want to upset retailer partners, but come on.

    Any word on what games are coming out on XBLA this week, Major N?

    I love how all these big budget FPS games always come out with a demo eight months after release, for the ten people out there who currently are thinking about buying it and don’t know what it’s like.

    Developers, grow some nadders.
