I’ve long since stopped trying to find the magic ratio for game to value. We talked about this with Returnal and it’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 I’m eyeballing this collectors set of another game that runs $175.
So yeah, it’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 I’ll be holding off on getting the game. And I’m actually perfectly fine with it. It’ll be discounted on some sales here and there likely over the summer and should be very reasonably priced come the holiday sales. I’m fine waiting.
Graphics cards have really helped with my “new toy” patience.
In the meantime, Ubisoft, it’s been 2,812 days since the last Splinter Cell release (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise or VR exclusive).
