Check out the Sega stuff on Steam today. Yet another way for them to get more of my money.

Why are the games on steam so expensive? You don't get a physical copy, manual, case, or shelf space in a store so shouldn't it start off at 40$ or something. Or is all that just extra profit now that they don't have to actually give you anything physical?

They're MSRP, usually. I believe it's because that's what the publisher wants to charge. It's probably not Steam's fault. Also, there's the convenience of not having to keep discs, though I don't think that's really factored into the price. I think Valve uses up a lot of bandwidth and there's probably a lot of server overhead.

Plus, most PC games start at $50 usually, anyway. And the sales on Steam are very righteous.

In Europe, Steam directly converts $ to € which has pissed a lot of people off. $50.00 = ~€40.00 currently but it was a lot worse earlier this year.

They wanted 50€ for Dawn of War 2...I think they still do...not acceptable if you ask me. Downloadgames HAVE to be cheaper than Disc-Versions, especially if you have to be online to play them, something the Publishers like to try out right now as it seems.

Still, I got quite some games from Steam but only cheap stuff.

Yeah, I forget that the Eur. gets shafted on a lot with their stupid currency not being converted.

As in if a game cost $50 they charge you 50?

I think so, yeah, Example: Alpha Protocol costs 49,99€ here.

Now, I can´t look up the US-Price right now but surely one of you can, stupid Geo-mumbojumbo-schnickschnack.

Yeah Dimnos, it's a ridiculous system that has not been changed to this day. I don't even live in Europe and it pisses me off.

Just started Metro 2033 and Call of Juarez 2 and I am intrigued. Call of Juarez 2 is honestly the most un-American game I have ever played. Not to mention, racist.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

Pretty cool. Waaay better than Portable Ops. Controls frustrate me though. Thanks for the one analog nub, Sony.

I'm going to attempt to play Crysis today, I hope my PC will run it.

UPDATE: Wow, Crysis runs at like 40fps constantly on my PC. My parts are all about 2 years old too. :D

I liked Portable Ops. The PSP is no place for a "real" Metal Gear game in my opinion and it was fun building up your stuff in PO. Still, I might give it a try, not much else coming out in the next few weeks...I think.

Eh, Peace Walker's got some Portable Ops stuff in there; you can still capture/recruit guys and put them in different divisions, and everything is still mission based. The reason this game isn't bland like PO though is that the maps aren't shitty. PO was just a bunch of rectangular cubes, and a bunch of the same ol' missions. I remember one map might have had stairs and ladders? Woo! Ladders! It was more like Diet Metal Gear. This is Portable Metal Gear.

I wish more than two whole people in the world still played PSP games. I want to try versus and co-op. That Love Box I have will never get fully used

Love that game though. I'm still hoping for a HD remake.

Who are you using?

Ditto. Planned obsolescence doesn't really do anything to people that get a new computer every ten years or so.

lol it's too bad that Crysis is so boring. It's so fucking hard that you can barely progress and your suit needs some new batteries every 3 seconds.

I didn't really care for it either. Playing on an island is fun though. I wish Far Cry 3 was on an island.
