Anyone else waiting for the price to go lower?

Couldn't get in on the steam sale because my PC would choke on it's own bile trying to run this thing, so I'm waiting till I can get this game for like 20 bucks and it just doesn't seem to be happening. 40 bucks new on 360? You gotta be shitting me.

it was like 10$ on steam the other week.   Dunno how much lower it can go.

Wasn't it $10 on something on Steam? Anyway, if you don't want to upgrade your computer, you could have a go at playing in with DirectX9. My guess is that there will be another big (mid-year) Steam sale soon.

haha, I love how I try to pre-empt the steam sale comments but I got 'em anyway. Oh well, reading is over-rated.

Try reading BeachThunder's comment before bitching about reading, he suggested you try using directX9. It is not a very graphically intensive game.


And I would like to add that this game is fully worth $40, its great. The atmosphere is amazing, and while the shooting isn't the best, I like the weapons. You can shoot charged up ball bearings yo

I'm always happy about people who can't read myself :). But to their defense: You didn't make it perfectly clear that you only want to pick it up on the xbox and not would also buy it for PC if you can get it for very cheap and just play it tuned down to the lowest setting or something. 

On topic: I guess I'm actually gonna buy it for PC someday, I'm just spectical since I get motion sickness from most FPS (I can play Mw2 and L4d2 for example).

A snarky aside hardly counts as "bitching" and I wasn't referring to his comments but Marz's. Anyway, my laptop is all I have and it can't even run Civ V in DX9 so I'm not willing to risk money on the PC version.

The game was liek 5 bucks a few weeks ago, why didn't you just buy it then and play later?

99.9% of the games people buy on Steam aren't even played so it wouldn't make a difference.

@KaosAngel: yeah, I've got like 5 games with 0 hours played on Steam.
