    Re: Death Stranding arrives on PC on 2nd June priced at £54.99

    Yeah PC games have been slowly moving up in price to match console prices. tbh I'm surprised it's taken so long - and I'll admit, I still get a bit miffed at paying over 40 quid (hell in my head them being more than 30 quid is still strange), but 55 quid is MORE than console, what the hell are they thinking here ?!

    Plus, and obviously personal opinion, there is no way this is worth it. Personal review of the game aside, it's simply not "big" enough to warrant a higher than average price. If this included extras that were coming, like true DLC and expansions, ya maybe it'd be understandable, but that's what Gold, Supreme, Ultimate etc. versions are for.

    I still don't really know what it's about, but I know it's had some rather not-good reviews already and I would guess it's trading on having some semi-famous actor in a lead role?

    I'll pass, either way. I have plenty of other games to play and several more to worry about first.

    Can you still sell console games once you have finished them? Not really fair if you are DRM locked with PC AND paying console price.

    No thanks. A walking/falling over simulator looks dull as hell with a poorly conceived and frustrating interface (so I've seen in the reviews). Looks pretty as hell though. But no thanks.

    Re: Death Stranding arrives on PC on 2nd June priced at £54.99

    woo I've been looking forward to this, and it's going to be on steam so I can actually buy it, even better

    I won't be pre-ordering or paying £54.99 though, I can wait a bit longer....still looking forward to playing it.

    Increased development cost and/or decreased market size = more per unit.

    Well, there's the double whammy of silly price and late release to sabotage their own pc sales.
