Wouldn't it be great if they put how much Arcade Games were beside their names when you search or even somewhere in the achivement guide or achievement list?
And how about retail prices for the Xbox 360 games?

Not really, prices always change so it wouldn't really work. If you want to know how much something is, go to Gamestop.com for retail games and look on xbox.com for arcade games.

I actually like this idea. The prices don't change very often, so it's hardly an issue.

I agree with pashos18.
Prices change and are different from shop to shop. So I think it's better to look it up on Gamestop or Xbox.com. In my opinion it's easier than make a whole list with prices and get it up to date.

Terrible idea for the retail games, what about all the different regions the site caters for? You'd have to have multiple currencies and diffferent stores have games at different prices.

Arcade games might be alright....

It's sad to see a potentially good idea shot down because people can't read. TC never mentioned pricing for retail games, just for XBLA, and like I said, it doesn't change that often.

As for that thread JDM linked to, the information in that could easily be transferred over. And doing so would mean one less sticky topic on a board with way too many

Do prices change often for arcade games? I'm waiting for r-type to go down.

Holy fuck. FOR THE THIRD TIME, no, they don't change often.

And this feature wouldn't even (or shouldn't) take sales into account, since they are short lived and not worth the hassle of changing back and forth.

Oop, sorry I have a habit of replying to the first post of the topic. How about a feature to force people like me to read the latest post before posting :p

Maybe you should learn to read as well, xodakok.

Anywho, I can't elaborate but we'll have this covered in a way eventually. Top secret project that is part of our 2009 upgrades.

How ironic. The OP may have been talking primarily about XBLA games, but he DID in fact mention retail games. So it looks like everyone that mentioned retail games did read the post, and you did not.

See:

Funny. :D
