    Default Star Wars Battlefront on consoles is pretty much R1000...

    How do you feel about this? Discuss, pretty please?

    It's research for an article I'm writing. ^_^

But while it is deserving of the accolades it’s been given by critics elsewhere on the internet, I never noticed until these past few weeks that Battlefront has finally taken us past the point of no return – the game costs R1,000 in most walk-in stores and online retailers. Yikes! But it’s not just Battlefront, as I later discovered. Hit the jump and join me as I learn more about this sad situation.

    Not a chance in hell that I pay that for a game. Any game. (Except Star Citizen maybe, one day) And battlefront at RRP R999 EXCLUDES the DLC stuff, so you get 1/4 a game for R1000?
    **** right off.

    How do you feel about games being this expensive though? Does having prices this high affect your ability to enjoy the game without thinking about how much you paid for the experience?

    Thanks to gameshare on PS4 i paid R450 for Battlefront and if i were to get the season pass it would cost me R825.

    Having said that i would have paid the retail price of R879 no problem, thoroughly enjoying the game.

    That's a wild statement to make. Inflation and currency is a b!tch. So get as much gaming in as possible now, coz you wont be playing long

    Well most new games on PS4 is R899 so around R100 off your price stated.Games are expensive at launch, or you can wait 2 months and pick it up for half the price.

    True, it's pretty close. However, Battlefront is the first game in my recent memory, aside from 2007-2008, where I've seen a vanilla version of a game sell for R1k. Would you feel comfortable if this trend were to continue?

    no, just makes me choose what games I buy.
    Instead of buying a few games and only play few hours each, now I will invest loads of hours into this game


    so far, (game sharing thus paid R450) I have clocked 11 hours. (online only)
    R40/hour of enjoyment, not that bad...

    *******

    even at R81/hour and many more hours to go into it is really not bad as I have easily another minimum 40 hours to go
