Worth though. It's ridiculous how much money, e.g., surgeons make over there.
It’s not at all. Doctors aren’t particularly well paid there relative to other professionals, it’s just a much richer country (I don’t think most people realise this) so all professionals earn way more.

Didn't N64 games cost £60 and that was a loooooooong time ago.
I'm pretty sure more than half the people here don't even know what a N64 is

I know it, because I still have an N64 to play. :bigsmile:

The most expensive games I ever saw exist for SNES. The rarities are over 300 € and pounds.

Well I know for sure I would not pay £70 for a game no matter how much I wanted it

I remember me to pay over 90 pounds for Banjo Tooie when it was a brandnew game in the shops. :rolleyes:

If you haven't heard, basically the prices have been jacked up for this new generation with new AAA titles costing around 70 at launch

Is this too much for a game?

What do you think?
It is. Wait for a couple of years and snatch a game for 15-25 on the Black Friday or another sale.
They profit on a hype at launch that will deflate in a few months by 10-20 Eur.

If you have one of these SNES games, you can make a lot of money:

Castlevania: Vampire's Kiss
Whirlo
Hagan: The Final Conflict
Demon's Crest
Mega Man X3

They are really hundreds of pounds worth, some even over thousand.

I don't mind buying a game with everything already in it for 70 quid rather than buying a cheap game with 70 quid microtransactions. For example gun bundles in Valorant (a free game) are around 80 quid which is really annoying. However buying Siege for 50 and then already having all the operators unlocked and having skins for free (via Alpha Packs) I'm completely cool with that!

I'm surprised you didn't even think so once it went past $30

Why are people mentioning N64 games. They were like mini computers stuffed inside a cartridge not some download and were cutting edge technology at the time.
