>Nintendo DS game price jacking when a GBA version exists

When will this bullshit trend end? The logic escapes me; MS should make Halo 3 for the Xbox for 50 bucks, that way the Xbox 360 version can be $75. The sad thing is that they could probably get away with doing that.

Am I the only one that's noticed/become pissed off about this trend? Are there any signs of it stopping?

Am I the only one that noticed that you can actually speak english, and that thinks it's a positive thing, you know, being able to decipher what you're saying.

Gaming companies stopped having integrity when the console wars kicked up. It stopped being about the games and started being about beating your competitors in sales.

You kidding me? When it comes ot business you really cant look at nationality, everyone will be ruthless. The Japs? for sure. The Americans? fuck yeah. Microsoft especially, they arent known for being too consumer friendly, nor are they known for being fair players.

Best solution? Id say dont play thier games but that would suck, so I advocate piracy, theft, bearshare and other such things.

You play WoW yeah? I am sure you played other Blizz games too, didnt you notice thier customer support and cool factor dropped somewhere around Diablo 2's Expansion was released? I wonder if it had something to do with Vivendi taking a more hands on approach with thier little cash-cow.

I don't think it will end, because it's the nature of business. Earn more = good, providing people will actually shell out the cash. With project sales of Xbox 360 being preeeeety good, I don't think they'll be changing their ways any time soon.

If you expect Microsoft to bow to the customer, then I got a river to sell ya...

A clever thing to say wether you meant to be sarcastic or not. Truly.

Yes! You speak like we think! Sereously, I hate the fact H3 is only for 360.
