Full Retail Price must be 15 dollars or below. I will pay more for a heavy discount on the original price. Yes, that is rather odd.

#3 Posted by sopranosfan (1965 posts) -

$15-20 is what I feel comfortable with because at that price I can look at it like a rental. I would go a little higher under right circumstances but there is no way I can bring myself to spend $50+ on a download.

Considering i buy 95% of my games digitally, i'm fine with paying full price if it's a game i really want at launch.

#5 Posted by YI_Orange (1226 posts) -

Depends on what I'm downloading. I payed 50 dollars for Civ 5 back when it came out, but I wouldn't pay that much for something like VVVVVV(despite how awesome it is)

I'm with this guy. If I think a product is worth the asking price at launch, I'll pony up for it. Case in point, Diablo 3.

I picked $49.99 but im not sure if thats right, I'm in the uk and would consider up to £30 on a digital copy of a game. £35 is the max

I've paid 80$ for a digital download of Guild Wars 2.

#10 Posted by NMC2008 (1248 posts) -

$15.00 is the max.

#11 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7597 posts) -

I buy almost all of my games digitally now (assuming they're not MORE than retail price). I don't see the point of keeping discs just to clutter up the place and it's clear we're getting ever nearer to an all digital future.

40 bones man and nothing more, unless your diablo and I don't feel like running to a game store.

#14 Posted by pyromagnestir (4390 posts) -

Well the most I have ever paid was 40 some odd bucks for Skyrim, but I'd pay full price for the right game at the right time.

#15 Posted by Inkerman (1492 posts) -

I choose games based on price. So if a physical copy is significantly cheaper than a steam one, I'll get that, and vice-versa, but we all know Steam sales dominate. I kind of prefer if my game is digital so I don't need to be swapping discs, but that's not going to make buy a more expensive digital copy over a physical one.

So all in all I would pay full price for a digital download (which in Australia is upwards of $80 for PC)

#16 Posted by MikkaQ (10296 posts) -

Whatever the game I want costs, that's the highest price I'll pay.

Crazy, I know.

#17 Posted by Bass (706 posts) -

I paid 59.99 for a Diablo III download so I guess that's how much I am willing to pay. That kind of game is few and far between, though.

#18 Edited by PenguinDust (12854 posts) -

For a console digital download: $20 bones.

For a PC digital download: $40 is the highest I've paid so far.

Why a difference? Because I can mod a PC game. That extra functionality is worth the extra price.

#19 Posted by Jrinswand (1745 posts) -

I try to buy as many games as possible through Steam. I never have any problems paying full price for digital downloads.

#20 Edited by Nekroskop (2831 posts) -
#21 Posted by artgarcrunkle (988 posts) -

$20 but that's skewed by the fact I won't pay full price for any modern game.

#22 Posted by flasaltine (1876 posts) -

Shouldn't new games on digital downloads be cheaper than $60 because you don't have to pay for the disc and box and ink and everything?

#23 Posted by believer258 (13034 posts) -

Whatever I think it's worth.

If it's a funny little odd game, no more than $10 and that's stretching it. If it's a full AAA release, no more than $60 because that's what I would pay for it on disc.

When I build myself a computer, then I'll probably just wait for sales on all but the most anticipated releases.

#24 Posted by Levius (1329 posts) -

As much as the game I want costs, I really don't see the difference.

#25 Posted by InfiniteGeass (2143 posts) -


#26 Edited by MrKlorox (11142 posts) -

Depends on if the thing will go on sale or not soon after release. In the case of Blizzard games (such as Diablo 3), they never go on sale; so if I'm planning to buy one, I'll pay full price for the download. Also if it's a game I know I'll be playing a whole lot (such as Battlefield 3) I'll do it as well.
But most of the time when it's games that I'm on the fence about, don't expect to play a lot, or haven't sold well at launch, I'll wait for a drop to around $15. Possibly $20 if it includes DLC.

#27 Posted by benspyda (2127 posts) -

Well technically some games on steam for me in Australia are $89.99USD but I have never paid that price. I just import a retail copy from overseas and activate it on steam for half the price. Generally when buying digital goods for a new game I like the $49.99 price tag. Anything higher and it usually puts me off it. Especially when I know a steam sale is just around the corner.

#28 Posted by Xerxes8933A (226 posts) -

50 bucks, because I'll never buy a PC game for the same 60 bucks as the console version. Absolutely no reason for that extra 10 bucks on PC except for greed.

#29 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8734 posts) -

At least 20 below retail.

#30 Posted by Spoonman671 (5165 posts) -

I don't really understand the question.

#31 Posted by Cloudenvy (5874 posts) -

Full retail price.

#32 Posted by mandude (2670 posts) -

Full price. I get enough games at a huge discount that the average I pay is still less than $10, so I don't mind.

#33 Posted by Puzzler20 (83 posts) -

$775 Million Dollars <>

To be honest though for a download only title the max I would pay is $20

#34 Posted by Napalm (9230 posts) -

Forty dollars.

#35 Posted by brainwins (304 posts) -

You mean there are analog downloads? :p

I've been paying full price for worthy games since Half Life 2 came out on Steam some years ago.

#36 Posted by Jrad (638 posts) -

I don't even have a CD/DVD drive in my PC; I haven't bought a game in at retail since I was like 10. Exception: a few console games. But yeah, I'd pay as much for digital as I'd be willing to pay at retail, even if it should be cheaper (due to manufacturing and whatnot).

#37 Posted by hermes (1801 posts) -

@ahaisthisourchance: I am on the same situation. $59,99 doesn't sound so bad...

#38 Posted by GS_Dan (1433 posts) -

£25 is when I start looking at what retail/amazon are charging. If retail is cheaper I often go with them as a digital version tends to be included now anyway.

#39 Posted by BisonHero (8636 posts) -

Fuck those games that launch on Steam for $59.99. Also, fuck pretty much all recent Blizzard games for the same reason.

So yeah, I consider my upper limit for digital downloads to be $49.99, and even then, I only bought Portal 2 at that price; everything else I wait a couple months for a Steam sale.

#40 Posted by AndrewB (7782 posts) -

I put a hard cap on the price I'll pay for a game before the $60 price hike. I try to stick close to or under $50 new. Same applies to digital.

#41 Edited by kgb0515 (427 posts) -

$20 is my max for a digital download. I hate seeing games like Assassin's Creed 2 selling for $24.99 on Xbox Live when I can get the greatest hits copy at Walmart brand new for $20. I understand that Microsoft needs to get their slice of the profits, but seriously.

#42 Edited by Slay3r1583 (684 posts) -

For me it isn't about the dollar amount, it is about the price difference vs buying a physical copy. The digital version has to be significantly cheaper than buying a physical copy. I'm talking like at least 25-30% cheaper.

#43 Posted by Demoskinos (16510 posts) -

The same I pay for physical discs. $60

#44 Posted by Lunar_Aura (2824 posts) -

It really depends on what the game is. I'd happily pay $100 for a digital download of a game that will last me a good year and has frequent "free" updates to keep the content fresh.

@Lunar_Aura I've put at least $100 into TF2.... I have horrible hat buying shame.

This though I used amazon since its cheaper... but if it wasn't available I would have paid full price for the digital... what matters isn't the money its the value for fun. I mean why would u cap your limit your buying to 15 dollars if the games in question offer say 10 points of fun when a 60 dollar game offers 100 points of fun. Its just logical sense. I didn't use length because it doesn't neccesarily dictate fun. Anw I can say that although I paid like 10 dollar for Braid back in the day and it was an awsome 2.5 hours(on my first playthrough), I spent about 200 hours on Diablo 3... so its much better value. Also TL in comparison i've sinked about 20 hours for a 20 dollar purchase... so I am skeptical about the sequel.

This is kind of weird since people are thinking of Diablo, but that's a unique situation. Retail copies are pointless since they all need to be activated on Battle.net anyway. It's also an exception to the rule, I mean, how many of you people would buy anything ELSE other than Diablo III for $60? Especially when a retail option you could sell is available at the same price?

I'm approaching this with the Games on Demand mindset. There are a few rare exceptions that I might pay more for just for the convenience factor or my love for the game, but for the most part, $15 would be the max I'd pay on those services.

Games on Steam really shouldn't count, though. That's a completely separate animal and the sky is the limit. How much would you pay for a game on Desura? $5 max for me, I don't know how long Desura will be around.

It all depends on your faith in the license provider.

#49 Posted by HerbieBug (4228 posts) -

Whatever the going rate for full featured games is. Digital distribution as an option for all releases is a future I anticipate and encourage.

#50 Posted by ShockD (2486 posts) -

30€ is the maximum I've paid for a digital download. Anything higher just doesn't worth it for me so I buy a physical copy.
