    Headline :: When will the marketplace rip-offs stop?

    The Godfather videogame led the way with some poor and relatively expensive marketplace content and now Guitar Hero II is hoping to take advantage.

    Check out the Headline

    Yup - it's a rip, but I'd consider the base pack a complete rip at £70 - you could almost get a DSlite for that money.
    What we share with everyone is glum, and dark...

    As soon as the market doesn't buy it.

    If it sells, it'll continue.

    On a side note, you have the pack details wrong. You've quoted Ace Of Spades being in both pack 1 and 2...

    But yeah, it is a rip off. As for £70 for the game, I don't think it's that bad whrn the regular game rrp is £50 and you have the guitar with it. It's certainly not cheap, but it could have been worse.

    When you consider you can pick up the game on the PS2 with the guitar for around £30 (which is what I paid for it Christmas time in Tesco) the 360 version really isn't that good of a deal (especially since the 360 Guitar has a problem with the tremor bar in a couple of batches which the PS2 version doesn't).
