      It’s a fun game, especially for $10. Multiplayer with people you know can be real fun.

    El Shaddai is $5.99 on Amazon. Why buy it here, even if it is $2.99? You have to wait for it to download, and it takes up HD space, which I’m sure we’re all short on. And you can’t resell it to make you money back!

      I don’t think a lot of people are concerned at making $2.99 back.

        Agreed. If you buy a for $6 or less, GS will likely give you less than a dollar for it. And, at that price, its as cheap as a rental, so you’re getting an amazing deal.
        Btw, El Shaddai is an interesting game – not the finest spectacle fighter, and the pacing is awkward, but its still fun.

      Well put it this way, you don’t have to wait on it being delivered, it’s not taking up shelf space, you don’t have to get up and swap whatever game you have in the disk tray to play it, you can delete the game when you’re done and redownload it again whenever you feel like replaying it and you can pin the game to the pins menu so instead of navigating the marketplace you have it right there to download at the touch of a button.

      It’s also cheaper than a physical copy and I imagine most people aren’t going to be bothered about making $2.99 back. Quite a lot of people, myself included don’t tell to sell games on once we finish them.

      Yeah, because it takes longer to download it than it takes for amazon to ship it.

      Same problem with Dirt 2 is South Africa. $4.99 should be around R44 but it is showing as R149. Seemingly it is only the US that can get it cheap. Every other game equates about right based on the exchange rate. I wish Major Nelson would comment on this and say whether it is correct and what the reason could be.

      Unfortunately out of all the persistent offers only three are available on the ZA market (Call of Juarez, Dirt 2 and Bioshock). Not sure how MS hopes to sell these if they are not available in most markets.

    Because economics and supply and demand work differently in each region. Just be happy you don’t live in Australia where they pay a million Aus dollars for the cheapest game.

    Cost to host / salaries etc all differ from region to region. It’s pretty standard to have region specific pricing.

      Yep… Grid is $4.99 in the US, 2.69 pounds in the UK, and $19.95 in Australia… WTF? So sick of getting screwed over, we pay the same for our Xbox Live membership and get shafted on GoD pricing

      • QuixoticRocket

        I don’t know why Aus prices are so high. I know that hosting is (a bit more) expensive there, but boxed games should be reasonable. It must have something to do with the amount of demand and needing to import rather that local production.
        I also suspect local distributors controlling the pricing, but I don’t know enough about economics or the market to fully get to grips with it.

    Wasn’t going to get anything from the sale, but now that they’re this cheap, who can say no? My only complaint is for the games that have DLC, if the games is $5 and the DLC is $10, I tend to avoid the game, you should have discounted both to increase sales of DLC alongside their games.
