Thread Details

Well, Amazon seems to think it will finally release for the PS4 in December. And still at the new release price of $60.

I think we should all ban together and not buy the game until it is $30-40. I have already waited a year, why not wait a bit more. Let's not support this activity of year-long timed releases. Or at the very least, not support "new release prices" for year-old games.

What do you think?
Which should we do in response to the PS4 delayed release?

Timed exclusives come with the territory. It could've been a console exclusive, thus requiring you to buy a second console to play it at all. I'll probably treat it just as any other release and pre-order it at a discount. Waiting for it to drop to $40 doesn't make much sense when you can pretty much get it at that price at launch anyhow.

Men who carve out entire galaxies with nothing more than nimble cheetos-dusted fingers and their wits, and in our leisurely twilight days we shall sit by softly flickering fires with our descendants recounting the tales of these unimaginable glories.

I don't care about any of that hoo-hah, if I buy it at all, it will be when it's under ten bucks, and that's only because I'm cheap frugal.

Am I understanding that you've already bought and played it on one console, and you still plan to pay full retail and play it again on another console? Is there some added content in the PS4 version or something?

Don't really care, I will play the proper version on PC when I get around to it on a Steam sale.

Charging this much for a year old game is a bit off though. It is basically just a "remastered" version.

That release timeline nearly puts it on top of the new PS4 hardware release. Would be funny to have this be the first game to split the PS4 user base.

Who buys a game at $60? Did the mods start this thread to figure out who to throw the banhammer at?
