It is irritating that console games that suffer from much lower piracy is a lot more expensive. Yeah I know about license fee that they have to pay to Microsoft/Sony etc. But it doesn't send a good signal. It's like "stop pirating our PC games so we can raise the price with 20%".

I've probably spent under a hundred dollars on Steam for dozens of games.

I don't really know how cheap prices mean anything about the lasting strength of PC games.

Agreed, No way a PS3/XBOX360 can compete with a decent pc, Games are alsmost half the priced brand new for a pc(25 usually for the top games), I much prefere a keyboard/mouse over a controller and the games on a pc at alot more graphically advance.

I hardly buy games for my ps3(usually cost 40 -50 for the top games), I own fifa09 & the wife owns singstar 1,2,3 & singstar pop .. the next game ill be buying for the ps3 in UFC undisputed then after that will be fightnight round 4.

Yeah... actually the opposite... what is better... Wolverine selling millions for 60 bucks a piece... or selling in the thousands for like 30 bucks? For the businesses... I am going to say they prefer the console side of the money.

I think multi-platform rubbish like wolverine is exactly what I don't want to see on the PC.

I am happy to pay TOP dollar for a proper PC game, which are of course few and far between nowadays. For example I would rather pay top dollar for the awesomely deep and complex Baldurs Gate II of old then pay for the rubbish/kiddy/gauntlet arcade clone that was the console version.

I'll pay top dollar, if the game isn't made incredibly dumb for the console meat heads.

I don't see that happening though.

My XBOX 360 is just a media center nowadays.

I thought it was mindless, childish, repetetive rubbish, but everyone has their cup of tea.

At any rate it's not the point I was getting at. I should have typed that sentence minus the wolverine part!

"I think multi-platform rubbish is exactly what I don't want to see on the PC."

That reads better.

Sorry but most of game price is going to MS, Sony or Nintendo pocket. Developers doesn't get more money because of higher price. So I would say that PC model is better cause same or more money from one game goes to developer while gamers pays less.

The lower initial and quicker drop in price should be an added pro for PC gaming, certainly brings back the cost difference when you are buying 20+ games a year.

But I'm not sure it's a strength, although many believe gaming prices should be lowered to appeal to mass market. It's pretty much demand and publishers who set that price.
