    Its probably because writing:
    ATI HD2900, HD3870, HD4770 - HD4890, HD5670 - HD5970
    nVidia 8800 GT/S(G92), 8800GTX, 9600GT(Not GSO), 9800, GTS250 - GTX295

    Is too confusing and long.

    What is up with PC games costing $60 now? It used to be a $50 premium for new games, then somewhere along the lines they decided, "Hey, why not match our console prices even though we make the same profit on both?, If they'll pay $50, they'll pay $60" WRONG! I already hesitate to spend $50 on a game, but $60 crosses the line...I wonder how many more copies they'd sell if games were new at $30...

    Nice. Its about time we are able to put our hardware to good use. The consoles really do seem to be holding back pc games for now.

    One can only hope for pc exclusive titles and new consoles in the pipeline.
  • xero9200 more thing. All this special edition crap is annoying. Just make one standard game and be done with it! Sorry, just thought this would be a good time to vent my thoughts on this ;)

    Yea seriously, and is 59.99 USA's price? if so were paying 10 bucks more up north. These companies are just scamming us since back in the late 90's we were paying 70+ for N64 and PS1 games, I wouldn't be surprised if in 1 year it will be 69.99 for premium games, oh wait, it already is in canada for console games.

    They will keep doing this as long as there are idiots buying these games at the jacked prices. For those who will flame me for calling them (or you) idiots, you'll stfu when games are 80 bucks, won't you?

    If the additional content isn't a "nude version"
    Then it ain't worth 10 bucks

    price of everything goes up inevitable i guess. whether it is worht that price is up to the market to decide. NO matter how much we argue we are still going to get it. PLus it doent look bad. The console version if 60 dollars. the 2 extra dlc are at 4 doll each so the total is around 68 dollars. We are getting that at around 60. So though the pc price have gone up so have the console
