I wouldn't say it was a battle really... more of a debate, or maybe a discussion maybe even a conflict. I think it was a misunderstanding.
besides... I think we need to get back on topic now...

i think the manufacturers would sell more games if they lowered their prices though.

Maybe but lets go back to software local stores.
Not Credit card internet BS.
Theres Nothing like foot browsing through thousands of software titles.
Cashing out and rushing home to install them.
Oh the good old days.

And by the way,Thats why they cost so much.No competition.
Just 1 place to buy.

It's economics, supply & demand, you have to understand that as long as people keep buying the games at these prices the price will not go down(until they've reached their sale goal) Thats why the horrible games go down in price so fast, lots of supply, no demand! LOL.....

I'm not "moaning" about prices. I 'm just saying, somtimes you make a better profit when selling somthing, by having lower prices, that way, more people will buy what you are selling.
I guess maybe you are right in this case. They are still selling games, so they probably wouldn't need to lower their prices yet.
And yes, I understand about supply and demand.

Yeah, that is a bit more like it!

If you lower prices; then you have to cut on testing, programming, advertising, research, support... it goes on.
