60$ is fine :/ but where people scrounge 30$ to buy a hyper 212+ , I don't see where the economy's going with 60$ a title that'll give what ? 10-15 hours of single game play ? Either it be epic like Oblivion .. or cost less.. The best VFM so far has been CS 1.6 ( LOOOL) cost me some 10$ and I've been playing it for the past 4 years!

Unless you're some philistine who's proud to be stupid, you'll use your computer for a lot more than just gaming as well. It's a media centre, productivity machine and communications tool.
But, I digress. Why the hell are you on OCN at all?
Someone's in a bad mood! Smoke up!
I'm a PC nut. Just saying , a console is SO MUCH CHEAPER :@ its agonising having to maintain PC's to play the latest titles in all their glory ( now don't start off how dx 11 is >> dx9 and all.. 60FPS > 30FPS ..) Sure... Console's have their drawbacks ( I like my 1:1 mouse movement for example) but VFM is ESSENTIAL in today's world .. and I have no clue where studio's are going releasing stupid expensive titles Oo , that a few high end machines may really get to enjoy. Look at steam stats.. wonder how many PC's will actually get to play BF3,, while every console out there is capable of running it. I'm not suggesting anything.

If you're going to spend 1K on a PC/laptop, a person can build their own PC and get more for less.
Also, 80% of my games are worth $10 or less. Console owners spends more on games than a PC owners does. The cost balances out once you take everything into account i.e. HDTV. Don't build a PC just for gaming, but also for school, work, business, multimedia etc.
So true. Can't make much sense of it right now , but I'll prolly be back in the morning
But rlly , 60$.. THATS MY POINT :/ Why couldn't this have been 30 ? even 40??
What goes on in the sales dept??
OH RIGHT!! SO PEOPLE HAVE HAD NOTHING DECENT TO PLAY for a LONG WHILE. WHY NOT FLEECE THEM TO DEATH ??
We'll drop the prices after a month or so, then the wiser ones with tighter pockets would probably pick it up!
Tell me IF I'M WRONG :@
My PC's two years old . I don't care.. but it saddens me how soon after , the i7s came out and suddebly games like C2, C1, Witcher 2 et all needed a more powerful set-up :@ Makes me MAD :@
Leaning on BD now ... That's gonna be a 300$ investment .. to play a 60$ game title... and so you can keep adding it all up
: Every one can afford 60$ .. thats like an evening at a pub! Who cares?? right ? But this could've been cheaper.
Having spent enough ( not enough , seemingly) on upgrades.. it's tiring to need to have the fastest for the magical figure of 60FPS ( I run 75 fps on a 75 Hz screen , so evermore so ).
