Lol, No it isnt. for a STANDARD Edition of a game i have yet for find one thats more expensive then £34.99 and thats on day of release. Even Console games (bar the insane PSN prices) are cheaper then that. If it has been dropped for £39.99 good its a start but i refuse to buy a PC game that costs so much, i could understand if it was Special Edition and such but for the standard game £49.99 was VERY overpriced.

Even at £39.99 i could go out buy console games brand new for less then that. if its not £35 or under i will be waiting until the price does drop, day 1 buy isnt that important too me anyway seeing how the content is more PvP based anyway.

sad to see Anet following the pricing structure of TOR.

@ pet rock, it's not put yet. the guy who has it got it through shady methods.

Yeah... I haven't received anything from Anet yet either. Can't wait till I do, though!

well take into consideration the fact that guild wars 2 an MMO is buy to play with no monthly sub, much like guild wars they need those initial box sales to recoup the money they spent on development, i for one think it makes perfect sense for the price to be what it is and if people refuse to buy it because of this then its their problem and they'll be missing out when the game is released

I dont, considering how End Game content looks like PvP will take all the attention again and how they have that Money Shop - its a sure fire bet that they will make LOADS off that as well. As well as the fact they do competitions in PvP much like the original. I see no reason why it should be this high.

PvP is there for those that want to PvP and vice versa PvE for those that enjoy PvE, personally i don't see how one will take more attention then the other, one persons opinion i guess....... I'd rather not discuss the pricing model they used any further although I'd buy the game even if it was $80 which is by the way what i paid for the digital deluxe edition.

[edit]

don't think we've seen all the end game content in the game all those game-play videos you see people uploading from the beta's don't go beyond lvl30 where you see the catacombs explorable and story mode.

i think that they're just pricing what they can get away with considering the anticipation and the price of what was considered their biggest competitor. i also think a mountain is being made out of a mole hill, something common with this game.

Just like GW1 i think they will concentrate on PvP at end game, everyone i know that played it from the start and to max lvl said end game was VERY lacking for thosr that liked PvE and something tells me they will do the same here, maybe not to the same extent but they will do it. As for the Price, i wont be buying it until its ALOT cheaper £4. for a PC game that isnt even Limited/Special Edition is a joke.
