    Star wars £104.99?! Who the fuck would pay that much for a download?! You would have to smoking something on or some sort of medication! Absurd pricing!

    Overlord: Fellowship of Evil is showing as $23.49 for me. ($21.14 after some discount is applied, either a new order bonus, or Gold).

    I was interested before but that's a better price point than I expected.

    Yes but £105 for a download is a fucking piss take because its star wars! I would pay that even if princess Leia arrived at my house to give me a blow job! Just remember if ppl pay that price every dev will assume people have that much cash and will start charging that for more releases(with the season passes) who could honestly afford to spend £100 a game?! It seems like devs are pricing out alot of their customers by getting too greedy they can shove it where the sun doesnt shine

    (Some of us can afford to buy these games if we wanted to)

    Minecraft for me laugh but why is Back to the Future ~€20,- !??!!
    VENI, VIDI, VICI!

    You had me at Goosebumps. I'm waiting till October 21 to play Back To The Future. toast

    Happy to see Breaking Benjamin songs added to those games. I saw them live a few weeks ago and they were amazing. Failure is a great song/

    Also I wish twin stick shooters would crawl in a hole and die, they are so lazy. Please stop making them.

There's been a lot of digital special editions before Star Wars. For example Call of Duties, Forza 6 etc.

    If you don't have the money to buy the Ultimate Edition then get the standard. It's not like Special/Collector Editions are new to the gaming industry. It's just that you won't get physical disc and useless art books for the extra money you pay.

    I like figures with CEs though and I get them whenever I have the extra money to spend.

    Spilner said:(Some of us can afford to buy these games if we wanted to)Yeah, it kinda sucks, but there will always be people with enough disposable income and enough desire for the product that they will buy it. Unfortunate for those who want to play the whole thing and don't have as much disposable income, but that's how the economy works. At the end of the day the developers are a company seeking to make money and if people are willing to pay for the product then they will continue selling it.

    I wish I had enough time to play all these games! I think I'll pass on this one, though. I don't think a lot of my friends are going to play it and if it's really similar to battlefield I don't think I'll enjoy it as much.

    Exactly! If you just want it digitally just get it cheaper or not get the special versions of games at all since you'll save a lot of money that you don't want to spend on it.

    I'm just so annoyed that Kinect Nat Geo TV and Kinect Sesame Street TV have been removed. I wish this was a temporary issue but I highly doubt it. I never bought the Episodes for Kinect Sesame Street TV at all and the Clips have made me unlock some achievements which I wasn't aware of. Now I'm stuck with 125G out of 2000G : (

    Minecraft Story Mode already has a disc version of the $29.99 complete bundle coming out. Amazon has it up for Xbox One and 360 here: http://amzn.to/1K9Tf23

    I also saw that Game of Thrones is doing the same thing and Amazon has it here: http://amzn.to/1Qu2NKs

    I love the disc version of episodic games because I can trade them in when I'm done. I'm glad Minecraft is actually putting the option out there up front so people who like the disc version know it's available.

It sucks that I actually started Kinect sesame street tv and got some achievements. Luckily I already completed the Nat geo but I feel bad for anyone who hasn't.
