No Man’s Sky pricing leak rumour sends fans into a tizzy

Sure, it all worked out perfectly, great job.

There’s been a huge degree of fascination with indie game No Man’s Sky since it stole the show at E3 2014. The game promises seamless exploration of a massive procedurally generated galaxy filled with unique planets, weird and wonderful plants and animals, and space-faring civilisations. Players will explore the universe, harvest resources, upgrade their space ships, and head toward the center of the galaxy where a mystery reportedly awaits discovery. The game is officially launching in June in PS4 and PC.

Fans have hotly debated what price point the game should be released at, and a mistake on the PlayStation blog has now thrown gasoline on that fireNo Man’s Sky appeared in the pre-order list for a short time with a price of $59.99 and the annotation “Out 3/3,” prompting speculation that pre-orders may open tomorrow and $59.99 may be the actual release price. This rumour has put many fans on edge, as they expected a game from a small independent studio to have indie pricing. Others are arguing that No Man’s Sky is a huge game that is worth a AAA price tag, while some are now asking for some more convincing before they’ll agree that it’s worth $60.

Good for them. Then number of people in the team that made the game should not be in the calculation of how much is spent on it.

 Pre-ordering anything in the age of digital downloads is pretty damned stupid.

Australian dollars, I should have specified. Here down under the common price point for a game on any platform was the 79-99 dollar mark.

I follow gaming and game development pretty closely.  I listen to multiple podcasts by gamers and professional game journalists who report on this these games weekly.  The hype is out there for what we are to expect from this game and has been for some time now.  Hype isn’t always the volume or frequency of information as much as it is the expectation we are given for said game, in this case.  Some pretty grandiose claims have been put out there by the developers giving a us a level of expectation that may or may not be fulfilled.

Denice J Cook Captain Electric That’s an empathetic “like”, btw. :/
And, chin up, this is the Internet, and CoH had the most ingenious playerbase of all; based on that fact alone, I’m still holding out hope for a surprise, keep that torch lit a while longer!

Valhalla Awaits GleefulGrognard Rumm Yeah, but I would rather not feed those people any more misinformation.
Better to keep terminology as clean and as informative at face value as possible. :)
