Overpriced? Its £27 with 37 days of free playtime . That's cheaper than any mmo to date with more free play time than usuall, and not sure why you felt you had to post that in the guild wars 2 thread instead of making your own tera bashing thread.

Oh is this true atm?

woa lol...dat quotewar...was just freakin annoying. Felt more like a worst-argument-competition tongue.gif I find the CE to be very expensive, facts are facts, though I might buy it. €150 is quite painful, but Ive still got a few days left to think about it.

I saw people here compare gw2 prices to the prices from other games: that's just the worst you can do. Let's say you buy a car and it's a volkswagen, are you going to cry every single time a ferrari passes by? cars are cars, but you've got lots of differences between them. Games are games and they might also show lots of differences, that's how it goes mostly. If you don't like the car example, let's use phones for instance. Android phones vs. iPhone, it's the differences and the name that you pay for ;p. If you don't like the price, then don't rant about it and let it be your own choice. No one cares really.. unless you start ranting about it on a forum to destroy other people's interest in a thread that was interesting before you came along..*cough*

It's not that much more expensive when buying deluxe/normal: €50-€75 for years of gaming experiences. Games that require subs: €50 to buy the box/account codes, €15+ after each month. 2 months of less money payed than a gw2 deluxe edition, woopty-f**king-doo.

I just felt like commenting to get rid of the small bit of irritation biggrin.gif.
I'll just ask something else to end my rant: Is the deluxe edition digital only? I can't seem to find a deluxe edition in a box near belgium. I've been playing gw1 since the start and I think I'd prefer more than just the standard edition ;D.

No its not that we are comparing lots of different models we are basicly comparing every single pc game to gw2's price and they just dont stack up tongue.gif
It would be different if they were all different prices but when ever pc game thus far is £30 and under then this comes out at £40-45 then yes ofcourse we are going to complain.

Well, you'd be lucky to get the CE in Belgium, all the low countries sold out super fast (only countries to sell faster than Canada iirc). Now for "Digital" deluxe (which is what I believe you are referring to), no you cannot buy it in a store. What you can do if you must go through the retail route is buy the standard and then upgrade to deluxe via in-game store at a later date. Alternatively you can just get it all through ANet directly via the online store "buy.guildwars2.com" and the official FAQ will have any further details answered pretty well (or the twitter feed, good grief twitterttererers rolleyes.gif need to read the FAQ once before twitting, there's like a bajillion replies that could be pulled right from FAQ).

Posting minor criticisms =/= Hatebashing.

Yes I do personally find the game a bit overpriced with the sub and such (USD though so it varies for other people).

This do they think their god's gift to mmo's?! No mmo is every priced at that seriously drop the price.

No mmo is priced at £50, yet at the same time, most mmo's of this quality (p2p quality effectively), charge a £30 box price and a £12.99 sub every month after. I think a one-time cost of £50 is preferable, and that cost only applies if you're too lazy to shop around, like I did, and get it for £40, i.e the price of a standard AAA game. Their development costs are likely quite high, and they're not charging a sub, so I won't begrudge them for having a higher than usual box price.

Additionally, unlike your standard PC game, they have the question of server costs, support staff, community people, etc, to deal with. Their costs are higher than your standard game, therefore there is a higher price. Fairly simple to grasp.

Got guild wars 1 for £20 on the first week, and no AAA games for the pc are not £40 you missed my whole post, they are always £30. They have alot of hype about them and alot of people interested so they have raised the price by alot.

My point still stands, I think. I mean compared to a lot of the other games you mentioned.
Quote:
Borderlands 2 £27 (~$44), tera online £29, diablo 3 £27 (~$47),
If Borderlands 2 is anything like the first one, then I might get 100 hours in it before I grow bored. I just played the DIII Beta a few minutes ago. They can keep it for that money. I wouldn't pay more than $25 for it. It's essentially a redressed Arcade game very similar to the first two.
But as I said, if GW2 is ANYTHING like the first one, then I know for a fact that I will have at least 2000 hours of game play to look forward to. I think that's a lot of value for £40 (~$65). That's all I'm saying. As a 40+ year old father, I look at things in terms of bang for the buck, most times.

So you played the first GW for around 2000 hours? How much of that was PvE content? from my experience and those of people i know the Game kinda dies for PvE at Max lvl and that PvP seemed to get the most interest from the Devs with all those Competitions and such. The main reason i will be holding back before buying is simply as we have no idea what end game content is going to be like, if its much like the 1st game PvP over PvE content then i could very well skip the game altogether PvP for me has always been a means to an end (getting to max lvl) and that i have rarely touched PvP content in ANY MMO that i have played once i have hit the lvl cap.

Though PvP might be improved over other games - i still consider PvE content to be far more important as i love raids/dungeons and such biggrin.gif
Though saying that - the WvWvW seems quite interesting, its just a shame that i cant get in on the beta and decide before it comes out frown.gif
