What product is over-hyped and overpriced for gamers from Microsoft?
That would be Halo 2. But that doesn't change the fact that Valve is doing it too, huh? I never said that M$ is genuninely concerned with its fan-base now did I? Your last post is kinda pointless IMO.
It wasn't pointless or meant as a rebuttle. I was asking what product you meant. Anyway, Halo 2 was over-hyped but not overpriced. According to EBgames.com, it was only $49.99, which is standard.
Valve isn't over charging either. You do realize just because you can't afford something doesn't mean it's being overpriced, right? $18 for a brand name t-shirt isn't too much and $50 for a video game isn't either. You know that Valve and other companies can't just give their product away, don't you? I mean, things cost money to make and therefore cost money to buy. That's the way society works, you see.
