It's possible this has already been discussed, but I don't have time to search through the various threads, does anyone know what the price for GB will be around. (in canadian $ if possible)

Nothing personal to the designers but this seems more like a 40-45 dollar game. I'm guessing they're charging 50 because they can. I know I'm gonna buy it at 50.

It is worth it.
Most good computer games sell at 50

Well, RA2 and AOK were both 50, why should this be any different. Anyways, i don't care all that much, i have nothing else to do with my money :D

Yeah. I've got plenty of things to do with my money.
1. PS2 system
2. Some PS2 games
3. Some PC games (JKII and GB)

That is called money spending.

If I you fergie I would stash away about a 100 dollars for Gb and jk2(asmuing that each will be about 50 dollars) and then worry about ps2 stuff later.

I never buy the strat books, takes the fun out of it.

I also have preordered GB. (as soon as I could) :D

Hey all!

Well $50 isnt bad I think.
Here in the UK i think it will sell for around 40.00 pounds or $65-70!!

I havent bought a game in a while, since RA2 (which to me seems pants) - so money worth spent!

I usually don't buy a game when it's completely new so I'll have to take your word for it. :)

Let's see Diablo II, the Sims and NBA Live 2001 were the only new games I bought every other had been out at least a year or more.

Buying a strat book doesn't take the fun out of the game,actually it provides better info on all the units and buildings than the game manual will provide...sure it has walkthroughs for camp missions, but i don't really look at them.. I just like the detailed information on individual units and buildings, plus it probably has tips on editing custom maps etc for new users and so on.:)

Strategy guides r OK as long as u don't use cheats or mission walkthroughs. I'd like a book with info on troops. :ewok:

i hear you hannibal, i wait a little bit or i also wait to use ebay to get games at a good price. i have connections at EA sports that hook me up with sports games for around 10 dollars.

i think this game is worth 50, but with the economy projected to be struggling for a little bit i'll see if i can get it for less.....

I don't know...I've got several hundred reseved for Games and I think I'll buy those with my money. But I'll also try to get the PS2 stuff for christmas...
Also I think I'll try to get Empire Earth simply because I liked Civ. series and always thought it needed better graphics.

Darthfergie, how can you have so many posts on a game that hasnt even came out yet?

I can't see that happening in less than a year and a half, and it might be more like 2, or more.

Admiral Odin

most likely even longer. why are you going to wait until it is under 20?

Tie Guy has more, but still...

I like this forum alot. GB is a cool game. Deffinatly a game that I've been dreaming about for years...

And I have a small addiction to this site.:D

I too have a small addiction to this site, but it's been boring of late, so I've been elsewhere alot. . . It's starting to get more interesting again though, so I think I'll be posting more often and regualarly. :D

As for the price, I would happily hay $50, cause me brother and I always split the cost 50/50 so it's like halfprice for EVERYTHING! I'll only be paying $100 for a GC! I love it!!! :D

DEFINATELY! I think it would be better if it was a little more fast paced, but. . . :D

Guess that means its $100 New Zealand then. Thats pretty much the standard price for a new game over here.
