    Testing cheaper prices?! Lol what the hell, u don’t need to test it, just always price them cheaper then physical game, as it should be. New releases should be at least $10-$15 cheaper as they are digital, with older games that should go down further. Why would we buy a older game for $40 digitally when we can buy it for $20 in a store? This goes for xbox and Playstation both, hell even goes for e-books.

      there is a lot more going into this then you would llike to think… what is the uplift in sale… does 10 or 15 have a greater effect and how much profit margin is there for each? Does the 15 discount sell enough to make 10 dollar discount pointless?

  • Awesome! I would love to see Dead Rising 3 on sale. Ryse is a fun game, despite the negative reception, but it’s moreso a $20 game than a 40 or $60.
