Give a single game a graphics upgrade, nothing more and somehow they expect you to pay $110 dollars for it, funnily enough in a year after release Halo CE on PC will have more players in the multiplayer

On one hand, it's a great look back, homage, nostalgia rush, whatever you wish to call it. The switch for retro looks, balance, it's a great idea.

On the other hand, as callan pointed out, asking players to pay full-price probably wouldn't be a smart move. A bit of a highway robbery issue.

Well it isn't full price. It's only $40 in the US so I don't know how it could be $110 AUD. If you don't want it, then don't buy it. But for people who have never played it, I think this is a pretty good option for them instead of buying the original CE.

I'd pay like $20 max, but I'm a PC gamer, so -shrug-

$110 seems to be the average price for a new 360 game in AUD, would leave this remake at around $80AUD if it follows suit. I've never followed how much video games cost in foreign markets though, could be way off.

I think it's well worth it, at least if you're a huge Halo fan.

If you already play Reach a lot, then it's worth it. The multiplayer is integrated into Reach's, so the 9 maps it comes with are essentially one giant map pack. 9 maps is about $30 worth typically, and then you're essentially playing $10 to play a remastered version of one of the most famous campaigns in video game history.

Or you can just think of it as $20 off of a full game that you already know is going to be good.

They're roughly the same, it's just that stuff like video games costs more in Australia. The AUD is actually worth slightly more, so it would be less than 60 AUD for a game if they converted over truly.

If I lived in Aus, I would totally just paypal money to friends in the states, have them gift me games and save like fifty bucks

Except that that guy is way wrong. It's actually about 1.06 on average for the last couple of months.

Now you've just got me confused. Google agrees with you & fury, which is why I made the comment I did. Paypal ~50AUD to somebody in the states, they buy the game for that much and gift purchase/send it to you, effectively letting you pay US prices while living in AU. You're just playing an import technically at that point, so only hitch would be region locks, if applicable.

I don't know much about world economy though, so I could be way off here.
