bought 800 today in Gamestation as i thought it 1600 and i already had 910 on my account, come home and find out that it's 1840, i really am disgusted.

This is honetly the worst thing i've ever seen from Capcom i can't tell you how annoyed and disgusted i actually feel 1600 was already stretching the boundaries but 1840 i don't even know whether i should get it anymore, especially seeing as it's 1600 in other countries.

It's not THAT bad, people forget the Australian dollar has less value than pretty much everything else in the western world. 29.95 AUD = 19.95 british pound sterling. We have to pay 14.99 for it, so it's only 5 more expensive for you. It's not that big of a deal - we generally get ripped off that badly regularly on releases anyway when compared to the Americans.

Depends where you get your points from. Amazon.co.uk sell 2100 for 14.99 so that makes this roughly 13. I wouldn't say that is overpriced

This is great value!! They could easily have released a disc version and it be 30. Instead it's 15.

Remember its listed as a full game, it's not on XBL arcade.

I'm not sure how to do it on your xbox, if you have access to a PC you can go on the xbox webpage, when you purchase the game it allows you to change your payment option to MS Points. Hope this helps!! :)

They did in Japan and it also included Code V.. not sure on the price though, if it was Region Free, I would have defiantly opted for that.

I know disc versions decrease in value, but they never release a 15 disc on Day 1.

It's great value, especially if you buy your MS points somewhere like Amazon.

I live in Canada, and my price was 1340. I think that's because our dollar is still higher than the American?

It's the average price of a normal game on the "Games on Demand" list so the price didn't really shock me....plus they're are other benefits of having it buy-able online. It's not a bad deal IF you know how to work the system and use loopholes;)(If you don't know what I'm talking about, I wont explain it here. Read Microsofts download agreement and you'll catch something interesting in the details about DLC privileges)

I think what he means is that you can create an account registered to a different country (where the value of the download would be less in terms of number of points). Use a points card to add points to the account. download the game/DLC.

then switch to your main account. As the software is present on the same XBOX you can play it on both accounts.

Game is 19,99$ in the US and 19,99€ in Europe when 1$ = 0,6€... WTF ?

Welcome to digital world where companies can do what the hell they want about prices !


BUT 1600msp (1680 here to be exact) is still a real deal for a top game remastered in HD.
Crysis will be available at the same price next month and I'll gladly pay that much for this awesome game, too.

In fact, I'll pay that price anyday for a full game over 3 overpriced maps for 1200msp in any CoD game...

only i usually complain about is when a game is $15+ and you only get 200 gamerscore for it when i can go to gamestop get a retail game for $1-5, get a 1000 gamerscore for it and take less tiime getting it

I think he means that you can split the cost of DLC with friends. So for RE4 you could bring your profile to a friend's house and log on to XBL with your account on his machine and DL whatever. Your friend then pays you 1/2 the price in cash. Then when you go home you DL the content to your machine for free because you already paid for it. Both users will have access to the full game this way. Note that your friend has the game tied to his console while you have the game tied to your account.

So you guys won't pay 240MSP above its announced price, but you will deck out your avatar, buy CoD map packs etc etc

If you wanna miss out on this then thats up to you, but the game is much more of a bargain than it is a rip off

Absolute Rip. Bought 2000 last night ready for this morning expecting it to be 1600. What pisses me off the most is how they add the odd 40 on the end, stunt to make you buy more points.

Had it of been the 1600 points that was written in all the previews dotted around the internet i would of had enough points left(including what i already had) To get code veronica next week.

Thanks M$ you robbing cunts. 14.99 in GoD or about 17.00 in M$ points. Caught me with my pants down you assholes.

Leading upto the release of the 360 i swore blindly ide get a ps3, wish i did now.

I said about 2 years ago "Once my xbox red rings, ile buy a rubiks cube instead". Still waiting on the fucker to give in lol. Please hurry up.

You obviously have money streaming out of your ears then. The game cost me 20 quid 7 or so years ago.


FWIW il give in to the corporate machine and pay the 1840 price thats been asked. Only because i cant get my money back on the points.

2100MSP is 17.50, so the game costs less than that. Hardly money streaming
out my ears.

If you were happy to pay 20 7 years ago then less than 20 now is a good deal considering all game prices have risen dramatically and its been remastered in HD. They could have quite easily release this for 30+ like they are doing with the Halo HD remake

Sorry i worded it wrong, i meant it as you must have money streaming out of your ears if you think it is more value than a rip-off. My opinion, and i respect yours.

Personally i think 1200msp would of been a good price myself with it being a re-released game.

Re, remastered it in HD. several of the previews/reviews i read whilst investigating the price would lean toward the fact that the old textures etc havnt even been replaced, and that the old ones have been used. All that would appear to of changed is that everything has been slightly upscaled to a higher resolution. Not good enough really.


I will of course see for myself over the next few days.

Agreed.
people should not be complaining because its only a measly 20 dollars= 1600 msp. i thought it was going to be 30 or 40$.

i def didnt think it would be that much as old as it is. you can get the game for the gamecube now for like $5 so i wasnt paying anymore than $20 for it

Why? GoD games never go under $20. Or at least so far they haven't, so you should have expected a price of over $20.

I have the game on the PC, and bought it for the same price about 3 1/2 years ago. I even have the Wii version and i still bought the 360 version cause it atleast has HD graphics.

The fact that your complaining about the price, makes me wonder if you do it just to complain? if you want the gamecube version then go pick it up and save $5 and quit bitching

it's $19.99 in america. not bad. for a retail game thats an hd remake. most things come out at $40 for 2 games, like god of war 1 and 2 or ico and shadow of the colussus. so 20 isnt bad at all.

and thats the main reason i dont buy GoD. when you can go to gamestop and get them for $5 instead of $20 plus you can trade them in when you're done where you cant on GoD and i expected exactley $20, like i said if it would have been more than $20 i wouldnt have bought the game. $20 was fine with me

I have been gaming for thirty years, being able to play one of the best games ever on the best console ever (I have bought four) in "HD-ish" is well worth the twenty bucks in the USA is a bargain. I have been hoping for this game more than most for about five years for the Xbox 360. My guess is it will be retail within a month, you should be able to play it for half the current asking price by the Spring. Well, I guess the Fall, if you live in Australia.

but yea, its an asian site and they give you accounts that u have to use in under 2 hours. then let them download. recover gamertags. but make sure to download them all before signing out. cuz sometimes you cant get the acount then they gotta give you a new one. annoying. but i have 18 accounts with like 4 retail games each and like 8 arcade games for some. also alot of zune movies

20 dollars is a little rough considering you can buy the retail version on the Wii for what, 15? Though this has 1000 achievements and is supposed to be an HD version. If you look at it achievement wise, 1000 points for 20 dollars is a good deal. There are some arcade games that are 15-20 and only provide some hours and 200 points. Ive never played the game before so maybe 20 dollars would be extra fair to me :)

Some people never had a Gamecube, PS2, or Wii. $20 is a great price for one of the best games of all time.

I already have the PS2 version so I will not be double dipping.
