    Well, I'll bite on NBA Jam. I just hope the two games I actually want go on sale or price drop at some point. $30 for Painkiller is ridiculous, and $20 for Crysis is a bit much. Isn't that like 10 years old now? It's been ported to 360 for at least 5.
    100% Onyx MAX on Halo: Reach 6/19/2012: 230+ DAYS playtime, 69+ million credits. 1.4 million FF kills.

    shadow of mordor for me. 16$ for the GOTY, it's a steal compared to what I see in store.

    Publishers, for reasons we’ll go into later, quite literally cannot afford to undercut or otherwise piss off retail under any circumstances.

    I bought more than I'd care to admit. Both shadow of mordors, 3 lego games, and toy soldiers, back log continues to grow

    Damn, that's a really good price for Shadow of Mordor GOTY. I hate buying digital retail games but for that price...

    Deadliest Warrior: Legends for me. Also thinking about buying Deadlist Warrior: Battlegrounds and The Lord of the Rings, but I'm not sure yet as I still have to purchase the dlc for Legends.

    HolyHa1fDead said:The Allslayer said:You can get a physical copy of any new release for £40 or less meanwhile the majorty are £50-£60 digitally.Not True, I just checked and Halo 5 is £42 (GAME and amazon), so not £40 or less for any new release (unless you mean in a deal, in which case you can't compare it to a digital title that isn't in a sale). Halo 5 digital is £45, so again not £50-£60. I agree it is still £3 more expensive, but not the £10-£20 price difference you claim.Because Game and Amazon are the only places that sell games? Google shopping it, places are selling it for £39.99. Of course you use Halo as an example, one of the very few exceptions to what I said (which is why I said majority). Why not Star Wars Battlefront, Blops 3, Fallout 4, RS: Siege, Fifa, both NBA's, Madden, Mad Max, MGSVTPP, MKX, Batman AK, Destiny: TTK Legendary Edition, Dying Light, Evolve, Dragonball Xenoverse, FF Type-0? Oh right because they prove my point.

Oh right because they prove my point.To be honest Halo 5 was just the first game I thought of, and I am aware how much Activision (not Microsoft) screwed the UK on Destiny pricing (although I couldn't find a physical copy of the Taken King for less than £40, but by all means correct me). I think we both agree though that Digital costs more than Physical, sometimes by a little and sometimes by a lot.

    I know it doesn't benefit many people, but digital pricing has always been for two legal copies. So if you have a brother/flatmate with an Xbox you can go halves, which is then cheaper than physical prices, and lends towards some fun LAN gaming or online team games.

    At least with Xbox One GoD you can easily buy them from the cheapest country/state. If you think US prices are good, just check out the Canadian price on games like Shadow of Mordor. Most of the Lego games are also cheaper in Canada than they are in the US. I know we don't list the CAD prices in the TA news, but we do add them to the Sales Hub
