    Default Wipeout HD Price

    Now lets see what you are all prepared/expect to pay for HD, in it's original form not including any possible downloads, state the price in your own currency (obviously ) it might be helpful if you do a little conversion or 2 for the benefit of others, I will put my price in what I think are the 3 main currencies so to speak.

    I would expect it to be in the region of say £19.99-£22.99 something like that, anymore and your going to kill the series Sony cos no one is going to pay ridiculous rates for an 8 track game, I fear the price won't be sensible after what I saw you do with the Pulse Packs.

    Word of warning to the suits at Sony, you kill our game with your ****ing greed, you better hope no one from here learns the identity of the price setter or his/her life could be at risk if certain people get their hands on such info, you have been warned

    Estimates going by current exchange rates, keep in mind the US will possibly end up getting HD cheaper cos thats the way it seems to work.

    £19.99
    $38.00
    €25.00

    Please don't go threatening people, that's just not cool, even if it was all meant to be good fun...

    As for the price point of HD, I guess it will come in at about 30 euros. Personally, I'd pay even 50, but that's just me and my personal addiction Haven't bought a game since Guitar Hero 3 anyway...

    LOL £20 quid would be fine and dandy. But this is the UK, so I'm expecting £30

    I wouldn't go for 40$ unfortunately since it is not as complete as Warhawk or GT5p. I'd say half of that, 20$ gladly, 30$ is OK. 40$ is too much, especially if some DLC will come and will not be free...

    Short of having to sell my nearest and dearest into slavery I`d pay whatever they asked, probably, but then in my case you`re not dealing with an objective person where this series is concerned. But even if we on this site all pay £50 for it Sony won`t make much money. To someone who can take HD or leave it and play something else, i.e. most gamers, the price really has to be attractive and they wouldn`t tolerate what some of us would.

    It would be nuts to charge any more than £20/30 euros, and even that would seem too high to many people. Something like £12.99 or hopefully even less would shift a lot of downloads, then reasonably priced DLC would help build the franchise. In my opinion, that sort of price point is what would appear reasonable to rational people (meaning non-addicts).

    Yeah, I'm not a good indicator for what Wipeout HD is worth either, because I'd pay $50 or $100 for it. I don't buy much software and I am willing to go all out for something I really want. But no way will most folks pay more than $30 USD.

    So do we have any indication (or, well, guesses) about how Sony will handle the reality that not everybody will end up purchasing all of the DLC? I am pretty worried that there will be great inequality in terms of what folks actually have on their PS3 to play with...

    SL don't have a say in the price, but it should be under a £tenner ;)

    I'll Pay any price $59 AU is norm for PSN title here in Australia

    Full release games are usualy $99 AU

    if there are going to be $10 upgrade packs coming out then then $59 would be my preference

    I must have this Game at any cost, it's the reason I bought my PS3 back in december.

    Um, you sure about that?

    I think maybe around 30€ is good and 40€ too much.
    Warhawk is at 30€ now right? How much did it cost when it was released?
