Thraxen Posted March 24, 2005 Share Posted March 24, 2005 (edited) On the subject of price, the PSP costs 250$ here. As much as a console, but lacking the power of a console, in favor of portability. The games are 50$ (perhaps), the standard price of a game. The DS is 150$. 100 dollars cheaper. The games are 30-40$. 40 being for the really high-end games. GBA games are usually 30 or less. Thus, whether or not portable products should be less expensive than console products, we've gotten used to it. And I'd like it to stay that way. OK, but your still stretching the facts to make your point. Most of the PSP games are $40, not $50... the same price as many of the DS games. BTW, take a look at list of DS games and you will find that there are a few $50 games. For years people have been paying $20 - $30 for what were in reality tiny GB/GBA games. We are talking about games that amount to 1-4 MB ROMS in most cases. Sorry, but I just don't see the gripe with game prices when the GB games have been a bigger rip off for many years... and save me the bargain bin BS, K'dash. The same will apply to PSP games after it has been out for a while. Also (not addressing you specifically), you people keep acting like all the games are exact ports of PS2 games. WTF?? That's not the case at all. I'm getting two games on launch day... Twisted Metal: Head On and Wipeout Pure. Both come from a series of games that has been on consoles, but neither is port. No more so than the new Metroid DS game is a port of the Cube Metroid games. Also, you people talking about why would you buy a game on the PSP when you could get a the same game on the PS2 are making no sense AT ALL. You would buy a game, ANY GAME, for the PSP for the exact same damn reason you would buy a game on any portable... because you want to play the given game in a portable form... port or not has exactly nothing to do with it. You are criticizing the PSP for being capable of games nearly as good as their console counterparts while the DS gets off for free because it can't. Makes no sense at all Edited March 24, 2005 by Thraxen Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
