Is it just me or are games getting expensive? I mean its 50 (I think thats $82?) for one game. The recession is hitting hard here.

I agree that it is expensive.

But, if you think about how much time and dedication it took the people who made it.. I think it's cheap .. Some games takes years, and yet it only costs 50 .. So somehow, it's actually fair enough that games are expensive.. But games with monthly fees, should not be expensive... That's just my opinion (:

Here in Norway, prices have been around $80-100 for a long time, anything below that is considered cheap.

How is this gameplay design?

But ontopic, I don't think it's merely the recession's doing.
It probably raised it a BIT but nothing extravagant.
Warez, on the other hand, did have a great hand in this play.

oft: Product marketing still fits under game design.

ont: The same with music and movies. Need to have more encryption.

here in brazil only 27% of gamers buy their games. piracy is very common here. example: a original game can be bought 200~250 R$. this is like 100~125 dollars. a copy (that can even be bought b4 the game is released here) is sold for about 5~10 R$ = 2.5~5 dollars. this happens bcuz the government tax imported electronics at a very high rate. thats why Brazilians play alot of f2p online games. till now i havent spent even a cent with games and i have the greatest (or at least i think) offline games, such as Fallout3, PoP, DMC4, Diablo 3 (lol kiddin^^) so on...
I think games should be sold at something between 20~60 USD. its a fair price.
