    this game looks awesome but sadly won't be getting it cant justify the price with so many other games coming out around the same time,

    Hopefully it will come half price on steam like cod WAW did and i'll buy it then

    They've decided to put the RRP up to £55 this year.......not a chance I'll be paying that for a game, no matter how good it is!!

    Well I was excited before I saw this video but now I cannot wait to play it. Hopefully they don't make the AC130 too powerful, it did seem as though you could take it down with that new rocket launcher. It also seems as though you can get more XP if you kill people near a streak or get a revenge kill. All I know is that this is a zero-day purchase.

    £55 really? Amazon have it for £30 on the pc and £45 for 360 and ps3.

    The rrp is £55 which is taking the piss slightly. I think online retailers will be able to knock
    a bit of that, but I think high street chains will charge full whack for it. Lazy people or
    parents who still don't know how to shop online will pay the price...

    I remember street fighter 2 on the NES was £60 on launch and still sold lots and that was 15 years
    ago.

    I do agree with you, but if you look at how many hours of entertainment you can get for that £55 quid... it can work out as the bargain of the century. And then, once you're done with it, you can sell it second hand.

    Regardless, it still does seem too much.

    Re: News - Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer trailer teases endless kill-streak fun

    The most I have paid for a game during this generation is £35 for COD4. It was not worth it.

    I paid £20 for GTA4 and considering the amount of entertainment that offered, that is the bargain of the century

    £55 instead of £45 for the rrp reflects the insane demand that there will be for this game. They know that they can get away with it. People are going to pay this ridiculous price in the shops

    Development costs are increasing though. I wish that developers were free to concentrate on more innovative gaming experiences, such as Portal, rather than having to spend years modeling pixel perfect graphic representations of cars. Maybe im getting old
    I recall Turok Dinosaur Hunter costing £70 shortly after the N64 release and many N64 games weighing in at around £45-50

    Did you get into it much online steve? I'd personally put COD4 up there with GTA4 and Fallout 3 bang for buck wise once you get into it online, I've put the best part of 200 hours into it since I picked it up with the console and it still gets regular play.

    Re: News - Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer trailer teases endless kill-streak fun

    Bah, computer crashed and I just lost a long post. The jist is:

    I didn't like the single player and only completed it once, so I didn't think it was worth £35 (based solely on my single player experience). I haven't had live for longer than a month, which I used on Resident Evil 5, so I have not played it online.

    I will have to get involved on live when this new game comes out. I think it'll be a case of ignoring the generic single player and diving straight into the frag fest

    Fair play dude I'm with you on the single player experience to be fair, as fun and cinematic as it is at times it's not worth £35 on its own. The online stuff is where COD4 really shines and from what I've seen of MW:2 it looks like going in the same direction. When you jump into it online you'll have to gimme a shout as I know most of the guys I play COD4 with regularly are all going to pick up the new game at launch and it's much nicer playing with some good players rather than a bunch of random frat boys

    Presumably for SNES and N64 games, there was a reasonable overhead in producing the cartridges? That's hardly the case for games released on a CD/DVD, so this really is just the developers reaping the benefits of their games' popularity (which is fair enough, in many respects).

    I remember the SNES FX-chip based games costing quite a lot... but back then part of the hardware that was running the game was actually in the cartridge itself. The FX chip that was in the game cartridge you bought actually tripled the CPU power of the whole console, IIRC. Almost like buying a GPU that happens to only run a single game...

    Knox, I will do. We had some laughs playing Goldeneye, Perfect Dark and Red Faction over split screen didn't we 'OMG SLAYER, Farsight, Laptop Gun etc' Good times.

    From a business perspective you can totally understand why they want to maximise their profits on the game. COD4 still sells well and costs more than most games its age. I don't think they are pulling the wool over anyones eyes with talk of increased development costs and/or teh bad economies!!1 though. As if the anticipated monster sales were not enough to offset development costs by a considerable margin anyway, this game seems closer to an expansion pack than a true sequel.

    I don't suppose the rrp of £54.99 for a game will drop when the economy improves either.

    Interesting. I didn't know about these FX chips. Cartridge costs were understandably more expensive. I think I read in a magazine that a cartridge cost £3/4 rather than 20p for a CD. Back in the day Nintendo also had the increased expense of using third party distributor THE (in the UK and the rest of Europe iirc).
