Blood from a turnip. Basically just like bf3 they make a big game then break it into chunks to sell each chunk to us

Sadly, I am not surprised in the least.

The way I justify expenses like this, and even monthly fee games like WoW, is simple and logical ...

How many hours of playtime do you honestly get out of a game? Let's take BF3 for example. As of right now I have 313 hours of playtime in BF3. So if I paid $60 for the game that's $0.19 per hour of playtime. So for twenty cents on the hour I am being entertained and doing so with friends etc.

Let's take a movie for example. If I starve and just buy a ticket. I am paying at least $7/hour for entertainment. And that's alone. Or dinner. I could spend $20 for an hour long meal that I just shit into a toilet later.

Even at $100 one of these games is worth the time you spend. It really is the cheapest form of entertainment.

I do not disagree with your rationale. There is no doubt that this is still more cost effective then most forms of entertainment.

I just wonder if the price would be as high if the game was only available for download. I understand why there is a reliance on physical media, however I just think the price is driven up by insistence on keeping retailers like Gamestop (aka Pawnstop) alive.

I just wish they would give you the option to buy it all up front and be done with it!!
