It's 1600 Ms points....Capcom does it again!

1600 for an old game like this.

Yeah, PSN is showing the same price. I would pay at most $5 for it.

If only they had announced the price along with the game... oh wait they did.

Are you serious? And here I was hoping it was gonna be 800 since it's such an insignificant fighting game. I mean I love me some Jojo's, but at that price I'd rather just whip out the Dreamcast. There will be literally no online community for this in two months.

Guys, this is kind of old news. People got upset about it a long time ago when the price was first announced. If you think that's too much just do what I'm doing and don't buy it.

I bet you wouldn't even buy it at 800.

#7 Posted by InfiniteGeass (2054 posts) -

I'd only buy it if it was 2400 points.

bought it.....no idea why....anyone wanna play Jo Jo's?

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure isn't a Capcom property. It's a manga license that they turned into a fighting game. The premium price probably has to do with that.

You can't read Dead Rising's text on an SDTV!!!

Seriously, though, that's a few too many dollars for that, for me.

Yeah, 1600 points indicates a low quality of product. 2400 or no sale Capcom!

It is a pretty big year for JoJo, since the manga has been running for 25 years. 20 bucks was a poor pricing decision regardless. It'll turn off any potential new fans. I mean, I love JJBA and am considering getting this because I only played about an hour of the Dreamcast version and liked it but the DC controller makes me want to kill myself. I'd be less on the fence if it was 5-10 bucks cheaper.

I am pretty excited for the new anime in October and the Cyberconnect2 game.

Also I played the demo and holy shit am I bad at it. I can barely beat Avdol on the lowest difficulty settings :(

That's my guess as well.

@ShaggE: That Dead rising statement brought back so many bad memories...
