I get the argument honestly. Games were $60, even $70 back in 1985. That breaks down to $136 roughly nowdays, games are like the only thing that have avoided ever going up in cost over the last going on 40 years I can think of. And then when you consider a small handful of programmers back in the 80's/early 90's could get together and kick out a game in a few months, pretty different than nowdays where major studios have hundreds if not thousands of employees working on the bigger titles at a time, over a 4-6 year timespan.

 

They have gone up technically with the inclusion of season passes, etc. Though you do have the option of buying just the base game, makes me glad we have so many great indie games this generation.

I pre-ordered awhile back before my GCU expired. Looks like on my order they added the steelbook. I did do in-store pickup, not sure if that matters or not. Good luck for everybody getting the steelbook!

I doubt that's gonna happen because they announced dlc and a season pass for 7 before it was even out.

Do you know how many times Resident Evil 2 has been re-released?

There is DLC for this game, OF COURSE they are going to eventually have a Gold/Complete/GOATIE/package.

Speaking of RE, looks like prices of RE origins have doubled for a new copy for PS4 on eBay. Lowest was around 16-17 bucks for a sealed copy of I recall.

Games back in the day were so expensive because they didn’t sell nearly as many copies in the long run, the number of people / consoles sold workdwide was a tiny, tiny fraction of what it is now. They HAD to price games so high or they wouldn’t turn a profit. Now, there are so many people that own these consoles, that they don’t need to raise the price.

In short, yes, games cost more to make, but there are plenty of factors that more than make up for that.

You realize that the various releases of RE2 barely differ in terms of available gameplay content, right? Any gameplay additions made were fairly inconsequential, so I'm not sure how multiple releases of RE2 remotely points at DLC

Doubtful.  Unless they release RE3 as an add-on for the base game which I heard might happen.  I can see Capcom making a digital Deluxe Edition of some sort with all of the bonus DLC (costumes, weapons, etc.) at some point, but all of the games content with the exception of pre-order bonuses and Deluxe Edition bonuses are on the disc itself.

Yeah......my bad. I thought RE2 remake had a season pass, it's all basically pre-order stuff.

 

Still, Capcom loooooooooooooves re-releasing their games and RE 2 in particular. I have 3 different versions of RE2 alone on PS1 (and there was at least 1 more version released).

Would love RE3, but I think it’s too massive to ever be an add-on

Went to cancel/reorder to add a game a few days ago and was hoping they would readd the steelbook. Guess I'm out of luck. Should have checked before I cancelled.

Demand is really high right now because people are trying to play through 0 & 1 before Friday. I'm guessing we'll see a return to normal pricing shortly after 2's release. I'm playing through the PS+ "free" digital version until 0, 1, & 4 release on Switch. Assuming they are physical carts and not digital or that Revelations 1/2 cart, 1/2 digital garbage...
