" @Dork_Metamorphosis said:I didn't buy Left 4 Dead 2, and I will not consider buying this new, at this price. As a basketball fan and a fan of sports games in general, I was considering checking out NBA Elite, because it might have been something good. In fact, I have NBA Live 2K11 in my Gamefly queue at the moment, and if I enjoy it I will purchase that at full price. Your assumptions are incorrect." @Naughton said:"ancient"? ANCIENT?! Okay if this was the original 1993 version than yes, you would have an argument. This isn't though, and don't tell me for a second you were going to buy NBA Elite. Because last I checked no one in their right mind was going to buy that. In fact, I'm even going to say right here and now, the majority of people on here complaining about the price tag. Come this holiday season, or even the day of it's release. They're going to AT LEAST seriously consider buying the game, at least. It happened with Left 4 Dead 2, and it's going to happen here. All this is, is complaining for the sake of complaining. "" @Dork_Metamorphosis said:There is something that's often said about a fool and his money, and it isn't that he refuses to pay $50 for an ancient arcade game "in HD". "" @angelfan91 said:The thing the whiners are conveniently missing is that the version of JAM that was going to come with Elite 11 was severely gimped. It was going to only feature exhibition mode, and a basic online exhibition mode. Now it has everything that the Wii version has, plus it's in HD, and has all the single-player modes, and come December it will have a more fully featured online mode. For the same price as the Wii version, which is only a few weeks old. Expecting to pay less for more is foolish. "" Why are people saying this was going to be free? It wasn't, you had to buy NBA Elite to get it, that's technically not free. Now you're getting a better game, cheaper. "Yes, let's all pretend that this is a great deal when something that was meant to come free with a new, modern sports game is suddenly priced at $50. It's practically a bargain! "
There's a difference between whining and being unconvinced that something is worth the asking price.
