The Magic Number – The Cost of Gaming

Doller Coin big!

With certain new games set for release at ever higher prices, while others (such as Men of War) have a distinctly lower price point and regular sales, it seems time (as ever, I suppose though) to think about what games should cost.

Please think of this as an early Christmas present.
