Iâ€™ve long since stopped trying to find the magic ratio for game to value. We talked about this with Returnal and itâ€™s price tag. And how, at $60, I was more than entertaining the idea of picking up the game. Until I found out it was $70 and apparently that extra 10 bucks was just a bridge too far. Meanwhile Iâ€™m eyeballing this collectors set of another game that runs $175.
So yeah, itâ€™s weird to justify things. Or, at least, my own spending habits and where I find value, I suppose. Ultimately, $70 is too rich for my blood and Iâ€™ll be holding off on getting the game. And Iâ€™m actually perfectly fine with it. Itâ€™ll be discounted on some sales here and there likely over the summer and should be very reasonably priced come the holiday sales. Iâ€™m fine waiting.
Graphics cards have really helped with my â€œnew toyâ€ patience.
In the meantime, Ubisoft, itâ€™s been 2,812 days since the last Splinter Cell release (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise or VR exclusive).
