Just wondering what people think the actual price will be I am hoping £45 as anything more is a rip off.

The game price has been released in America according to computerandvideogames it is $60, and like always we will pay more, even converting that is £40.14. If PS4 games end up being sold at prices much higher than that unless they come with special DLC ( I would pay £5 for a better edition).

Ideally I would Like a £38 for standard edtion of the game I know certain companies even now on the current gen are pushing the prices up of their games but I am hoping that it wont work.

At launch the PS3 games were priced at £50 +, same as the xbox 360. Once the market is saturated with titles then I would expect the general price to fall around the accepted £40 mark with Tesco & Asda dropping further on selected titles. From what I can see, only Game priced Fifa at 44.99 where other retailers had it at £40 and supermarkets less; I preordered Batman origins for PS3 for £30 on Amazon.

Look around in the supermarkets - you will get cheaper there.

You mean the price of SS on Amazon? Well, it will be what it says the price is, currently £47 (although I pre-ordered when the price was £45 and will still pay that). I haven't seen it any cheaper anywhere else.

Just wait 2 weeks after release, you will be able to get a much cheaper preowned as new copy of this game just about anywhere.

It only has a single player mode so people will part exchange it quick before it looses to much value

I'm not buying any PS4 games until they drop to under £35, I got the console , but I am not paying these crazy prices for games, once there is a large selection of PS4 games out there prices should level out and drop quicker. They are just taking advantage of people who have a new console and not many games to buy for it. If people stop paying these crazy prices like £47 for inFamous, they will have to drop the prices.

You will have a very long wait then unless you buy second hand ones. Killzone is around £22 now used.

The $60 tag from the US is misleading, you have to add sales tax to see a better picture. VAT is 20% and there's nothing we can do about it, apply that to the US pre-tax price and you're looking at $72. At today's exchange rate, that'll come in around £42, 3 months ago that would have been £45. It's a lot, but let's not forget how much is going to the govt.

You could try importing from the US, but you'll be paying £35 + shipping + whatever HMRC add for their take as import duty, i.e. VAT again.

I think the best policy is to send a message to the publishers that these efforts to gouge £50 for PS4/xbone titles will be met with low sales. I've seen new titles at £45, £47 and £50, they're clearly trying to find a sweet spot we'll accept.
