    Why wouldnt activision take advantage of Blizzards working battle.net. If they can sell it there and get all the money instead of selling it on steam and losing 30% to valve.

    Would you rather games coat double the price they should because they are the only vendor so they can set whatever fucking price they want? Or to have to use a few different launchers?

    That still happens because most of these companies use their launchers to sell games exclusive to their launchers. So they still charge a lot and increase it however/whenever they want.

    You do know you made utterly fucking no sense there right? If the only place to buy it was steam they could charge 300$ then say "fuck you. Can't get it anywhere else" that is a monopoly. That is why diamonds are expensive. They are cheap and plentiful
    But only 1 company sells them. So they can sell them at any price they want. And you have to fucking suck it up

    Learn how the economy works. A monopoly is the worst thing ever for the consumer

    BTW steam takes 30% of all sales from anyone on its market. So yeah there is a reason why ahit still costs a lot even though it is not physical. They ask for a lot of money for the server space and bandwidth

    Never understood why Australians complain about the prices of video games.

    Yeah your games look like they cost a lot, but at the same time isn't your minimum wage like.. double that of the US and UKs?

    Edit: Just googled, it's nearly triple. You're working the same hours to get this game as someone in the US or UK is.

    And Token prices will skyrocket once again!
  1. VanishO2's Avatar
    These console prices on PC games... lol

    And to think that it costs far more here in my country than the average price for PC games... While I pay 99 for Resident Evil 7 PC (vs 199 for the XBO/PS4 version) for example, this costs 199 for the standard PC version...

    But not surprised since Blizzard also went for console prices on their PC only (and PC/console like Overwatch) products here, looks like Bungie and Blizzard tag along well enough lol.

    It's Early BETA access. Not to the full game itself.

    kinda glad that amazon also offers beta keys. this way I can preorder and then cancel once I have the key. so that I could see if I even want to spend some of my bnet balance on it. but dear lord, tokens went up 30k in the last 24 hours... again. eeep

    not even close to Sims 4, MMO-C reports it b.c. its new to the B.net app which includes all blizzard game and now Dest 2. It makes perfect sense they would report on a new addition to the b.net launcher/app.

    Because Steam would take a bite out of each sale, not that complicated.
