Console market buys and sells a lot of used games. There may be a backlash. When I used to play consoles more often, I almost never bought new games because they are not worth the cost.

Steam/Origin are his solution to this used game "problem" anyway and regardless of what anyone will say, it's also one of the reasons why many developers like Steam. He's just saying what they're all thinking. Do you respect the guy who tell you his true feelings or the man who hides behind what he knows you want to hear? In the end, he's tried to be both so it doesn't even matter.
Your game will always be locked to your single account, therefore unable to be sold. Therefore prices stay higher for wayyy longer due to no competition from used market causing price depreciation. Meaning we only get "sales" when Valve/EA and the publisher says so.
So in the end, it seems like us gamers actually think the solution to killing off second hand games is "absolutely awesome" too, given that we give Steam so much support.
Your mind.
I blew it.

Bingo!

No game is worth $65.00 new. The prices for console games are retarded. Most of the games are either crap or extremely short that you just wasted that money. This is why I LOVE PC. PC games smoke console games and are dirt cheap

If I recall correctly, console games are priced high to offset the percent of the game requiered to go to Microsoft/Sony/Nintendo. Developers sell the PC games at the same price because they can, and make a much larger profit. I do agree with you, $65 is way to much for a game, no matter how bad ass it is. $50 is a much more reasonable price.

Most PC games are sold for 60 bucks new and console games have bargain bins as well. The premise that PC games are cheaper only holds true if you never buy games at release and wait for them to go on sale which you can do the exact same with console games. It's a silly argument.

Well come on over to Australia, now A list titles often hit $100-105 and stay that way in brick and mortar stores ...........COD BO sat at $80-$100 for months and months and months and Steam, well not many concessions there.


Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 3 $99.99 USD
Call of Duty®: Black Ops $89.99 USD
Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2 $89.99 USD

To me, that is what makes me want to punch kittens.

Then add to that the fracking Government can't decide on having an R18+ rating or not in games..,................God I love this country in some respects...(That last bit was to be taken a sarcasm).

Me too, I like to pick up games in Steam sales I missed but this whole thing about PC games being so much cheaper is ridiculous. At best maybe it's only 50 at launch but that's been happening less and less too.

Whoever made that statement needs to get fired...and fast, as changing your statement after all the rage that came through made that person a clown.
"Oh, I knew nothing of how the world works...so I'll just release an statement in which I apologize to everyone so no harm done".

Sure, go to hell. The worst thing we could ever have is people with no knowledge of the system, and no personality. So, If you ever release a statement that its either black or white, you stick to it. Changing it just shows how weak you are, and what your knowledge is regarding the community.

Thats not true. I bought BF3 1st day for 35GBP. If you take away the VAT, you know how little I paid for an AAA title at day 1.
