Thanks a lot for the 80GS, then content packs made it sound as if the games were free, but 240MSP for one, that fucking stupid.

So please, anyone who knows who approved of that idea tell us all, so when we pass him in the street we can kick him in the balls.

Game Room is a great idea, love the Designer for making a ROLF Taunt for the avatar, when sending a challenge.

You just overreacting

The only reason for why you hate the price, is beacuase of the achievements.
Sure the price is a little high, 120-60MSP would be a fair enough price.

But ever tried to actually play a great retro arcade game, without thinking about some achievements?

and the voting thing on the home site has a Q. about getting a DLC if the content is good.

$3... you could get 20 of these for the price of 1 360 game... I know our economy is going to shit but christ people it costs more for avatar shit, but everybody buys it anyway even while complaining about it...

edit: you guys are all European so you should still have money...

I don't get why people are surprised. Ever since this was announced it has been known how they'd be priced. There's absolutely nothing surprising.

Yeh, I was thinking about the achievements, but 240 for a game I can play on the internet for free, that's what I'm most annoyed about.

I know what you are saying but 20 of these games combined don't even have the replay value of a single decent 360 release. I'd WAY rather burn $60 on Mass Effect 2 or Bad Company 2 than even 30 of these arcade games. And I'm old enough to tell you I played almost every one of these Game Room games when they were Brand New :)

Nostalgia is a bitch. Everything you remember as being fun as a kid really never is the second time around.

Yeah anyone who thought this was going to be free hasn't been paying attention. We've known the pricing details for Game Room for quite a few months now. It was not some hidden secret.

Who might know if they actually will release at least 1 free Arc. Mach.?

Agreed and agreed. I'll take MW2 and its stimulus map package (throw in a Riot Shield Avatar prop to make my point) than all 30 of these games.

I was excited for game room. $3 didn't sound like much, but then I actually played the games. Most are fun for a good 30 seconds, than I am left wanting more.

Games should be $1.50, and even then, I would think twice about it.

If you don't like it, don't play it. If it cost too much, don't buy it. If you like it and it cost too much, suck it up and be a fucking man/woman and pay the fucking price.

I've been hoarding 680 points for months, and I refuse to spend them all on bleepy, bloopy, pieces of ugly old crap. :-)

So basically you'll take it up the ass if you want it bad enough? Strong work.

This is a fucking rip-off, just like that damn Stimulus Pack for the awful MW2.

But at least game room is a rip-off with good classic games. But 400 bucks? Go to hell, I'll just get the achievements I can have for free and proceed to delete this thing. But hey, at least I got my free grill for the bloc party thingie.

It's a bit steep but i purchased the only one worth buying (Super Asteroids) I wouldn't mind paying say 400/800 MS points for themed arcade packs.

Which would be great, ie capcom arcade theme a few related decorations & a game bundle (Ghosts N Goblins, Knights of the round, Final Fight, Mercs ect)

I think that would work really well, 150/200 MS points is fair per game.

I want to know why I can't play my arcade games I already own, that would have made this all worth it but instead a bunch a retro games I have never heard of. It is called a arcade game room right, they need to take this idea and start over

Everybody has their idea on how much they will pay for something. I for one will have a look and see if anything takes my fancy and if I am willing to part with my MSP for it. If not, I'll leave it - no big deal.

It's only annoying as it will mess up % completions. But then if you want to maintain it, don't get the game room - it's the equivalent to an expensive retail game if aiming for 100%.

I am not terribly impressed with Game Room's starting line-up. I think the games are a bit too retro, but that's just based on my age as all these games were before my time. I would like to see more games from the mid '80s and early '90s, Capcom, Sega, and Komani had some really great titles back then. I would like to see more beat 'em ups and side-scrollers.

Microsoft says they Game Room will eventually have hundreds of games and we should all give them some time to see where they're going with this, but so far, meh.

There are alot of good points on this thread.

1st off, to let you know, i LOVE the retro arcade games, yes they are over priced, but who printed the name Microsoft on the game? im not shocked lol.

also, this IS a achievement site and not the right place to disagree about just playing a game. anyone know how many game id have to buy to get the full 1k?

also this game rocks!!! i wasnt thinking they'd make it a full 1000.

please send it to my mail here or my gamertag
