    why are games so expensive? They should have a buy one get one for free sale on new titles when they come out. who agrees or disagrees. No one likes paying close to sixty bucks for a game and the game is not cracked up to be what you expected.

    Amen Brotha!Lol... But video games can't really go on sale, the play no part in the economy, there are no stocks on any video games, and it's not a Franchise type thing like a store like Macy's. Just be happy on the 10$ cheaper like he said.:p

    Yeah.. Complaining about the Wii, and there games? I mean.. ick. You know, as games come out in the future, they're probably going to be like 70 bucks, because the graphics are better, and everything. So..

    If $70 games starts to happen, that will push me right out of the market. I think most games are over priced, Wii games especially. I don't mind $50 games that are sizable and have good replay value but most of the games I've seen for the Wii shouldn't be anywhere near that price. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens but I think the companies involved would make more if they sold their games for less. I'd try games that I would have never even considered if the price was $29.99. When it's $49.99, I do a lot of research first and only buy what's highly rated. I just can't buy that many games at that price point. At 60 and 70 dollars a pop..... well, I don't know how the Xbox and PS3 users do it!

    I think 70 bucks is the same as 35 english Pounds and over here 35 pounds is like the average price for a game. Guitar Hero cost £70 thats $140!! The majority of games are £40 ($80) but some sell for £30 ($60) now and again; and we consider that cheap, well i do anyways.
    So, in my opinion your quite lucky to live in the states because the games over there are alot cheaper than they are over here!

    But putting this question in the Wii Gaming section makes people think your talking specifically about Wii games, see how that can happen?

    Plus I don't think games prices are too bad, as long as you know what your getting yourself into. That can be done by waiting for reviews or finding out what they game is going to be like by searching around etc. This way your not always buying junk and your money is not wasted.

    I don't know about your gamestop but mine has a "buy 2 games get 2 free" though you have to get 2 used games to get 2 other used games free.

    keep dreaming buddy. no WAY will we be getting any special promotions on NEW games.

    game developers are the sons and daughters of satan and barbara streisand.

    Well, just wait 5 years, save your money and wait for them to be worth a PS2 game.

    you can't always go by what the review says b/c u might not like a game that they feel is a ten. you might really like a game and feel it deserves a ten and the review gives it a five. Only you the player can determine what game works best 4 u. :)
