i payed full price for it and although it feels realyy incomplete the multiplayer seems pretty fun so i feel $69.95 (australian) so roughly half normal price would seem about right
how much would you happily pay for this game?
It's not about the price. Some say it would be better if it was a $15 XBLA game, but I've never seen the point of buying those either. You can get Halo ODST or some other older FPS that while maybe not as good as the most recent game in the series, people are still playing and it costs less than the XBLA game and is in most ways a better game. I guess some people just have to play whatever is the newest game and they have to play it from day one. It's kind of like choosing a two year old Mercedes or a brand new Kia. I wouldn't buy the Kia.
About $20, that's what I'd expect to pay for the equivalent as a download-only release. That said, I'm not terribly interested in picking it up anyway so if it went for $20 tomorrow I'd probably pass. If it were in some crazy Steam sale for $5 I'd probably pick it up in a heartbeat.
By the way, Aussie game prices are pretty crazy, but if you're paying $130-140 for a new release game you should probably start shopping somewhere else.
" If someone gave me a code for a free download, I probably couldn't be bothered to redeem and download it. "Ah Hyperbole.
But probably around twenty dollars, don't see myself investing much time in the multi-player once I've gone through the maps a few times.
I remember that Quake Wars Enemy Territory had probably twice as many maps as well as vehicles & that was fine for full price. I feel that unless they double the map count & improve the bots this game would be better off in the $30-40 range. I wonder if they got tired of this game being stuck in development & pushed it out early.
At this point I think it all depends on well how they support their game post release. How many free updates that include new features and maps can they put out without having to start including Non Free DLC. If I were them I would support Brink with tons of new maps and new game types for free then have some new costumes as DLC. People would start to take notice and at that point the price will probably be around $20USD. Eight more maps and 2 new game types; That's enough content to satisfy people and pique their interests in the game again.
I think it's important here to differentiate between how much you are prepared to pay for this game and how much you think it's worth. Assessing worth is basically a review in monetary form, whereas stating how much you would be prepared to pay is a reaction based on the reviews of others.
From what I have seen the reviews are mixed, with some people claiming the game to be average, others that it's fantastic, and even a group of people who's experienced have been marred by technical issues.
Personally I'm interested in the game but after reading the reviews i'm sceptical of dropping full price. However I would totally pick it up if it landed in a steam sale or something. The PC version is currently selling for about £25, which seems fair, though I'd still prefer to wait.
