That reminds me of when I went into some game shops the day after Black Ops was released and the pre-owned section was full of copies of Black Ops

Unfortunately so many millions have already paid full price for a "game" that is going to be incredibly over rated. You might have noticed I put " " by the word game, that is because MW3 will most probably be MW2 with 1 or 2 extra maps and guns. Which means MW3 is probably going to be over priced DLC. It would be hilarious if no one actually buys MW3 at full price

I most certainly did not. But since you mention it, that proves my point even more.

Facts are facts. All of the DLC I downloaded for $10 each from Fallout 3 and Fallout NV gave me more hours of gameplay each than I ever got for my $90 for Altered Beast or Last Battle.

Thanks! I really didn't have a say in where I was born though.

That being said, I can quite vividly remember buying Genesis games in the US in 1993 at Toys R Us. New releases were $49.95 which is you can do the math, still makes today's game a heck of a steal for the content you get.

valid point, yet in the technology age, when it was far from where it is now, that was a steal back then for the technology available to use. at that same time, it also cost $270 for a 40mb harddrive. its hard to compare games with raw money price points from then till now because obviously of the technological advancements.
