They gave me seven "bad selling" games just for signing up, and i see most of the game prices from best to worst selling most of the bottom-listers are already cheaper than the top. I find gog the most reasonable site in terms of prices.
Agreed, they already do this. www.moredz.com
I'm pretty sure they already do this.
I dunno about you, but most of the games that sell poorly are probably ones you would be less likely to buy.
Games are already cheap there, stop counting pennies that much.
If prices were obviously lowered for bad selling games, then it would just advertise the fact that it's a bad selling game. I like to save money, but I don't think this is a good idea.
2,99 for some games seems like a good decision. Then we've got a question which games should be downpriced :P I'd go for the mediocre (Angel of Darkness, Mobile Forces, Runaway series, MegaRace 3) or really old w/o much extras or redeeming values nowadays (Waxworks, Personal Nightmare) . Just my 2c.
Why the hell is Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness $9.99? It should be freeware if you ask me.
I'd like to see a third price level at about $2.99-$3.99, for some of the oldest games that "feel" expensive at $5.99. It would also allow some of the games currently bundled at $5.99 or $9.99 to be sold separately to give us more control over buying just the game(s) we really want, not a bunch of others we weren't so bothered about. However, I think that there should also, and perhaps more urgently, be a reassessment of some of the oldest games priced at $9.99, to bring them down to a more realistic $5.99. How easy it would be to get the publishers to comply, though...
Voted by mistake.Any way to remove a vote?
Make BAD games cheaper? They're still bad games. However a third (lower) price point might be a good move. Perhaps $3.49?
This would be a good idea; however the signed contract between GOG and said game rights owner may not include such a proposal' unless the game rights owner would agree . Gem of the Week and any Promos might be fine with both parties as per their legalized agreement by way of the mutually signed contract.
Adding more price levels is a good idea. Some games are expensive, even at 5.99. That is some serious money for the likes of Syndicate or Wing Commander 1/2, for instance. Some 9.99 games are also expensive. Adding different price levels or rethinking the pricing strategy is never a bad exercise, I believe.
But I totally support the idea to recude the price of some 10$ games to 6$. :B
GOG already has a better solution for this which is called "Gem of the Week". The thing about "Gem of the Week" is that GOG is rather focussing on games that actually deserve being bought and played and that they treat them with respect. Just reducing prices because a game is not popular is non-sense. And also: What would you do if it suddenly sold very well? Lift the price again? Nah, terrible idea. It's good the way it is.
If they haven't already done this they really should. I feel this could really help sales. And even if it doesn't help sales then at least it will be a nice way to filter out the crappy games
umm... dont they already do this?
Personally I wouldn't buy bad old games even if their price went down. There's just no way I'll spend any more time with *cough* Far Cry 2 *cough* Master of Orion 3 *cough* PHANTASMAFUCKINGGORIA *cough* etc. since they all have serious design faults. I don't know why they are even on this site. PHANTASMAGORIA was so epic fail that I guess there's some kind of nostalgia in it. But it's really really really hard to justify for example Far Cry 2 which is annoying game to play. More about that you can read from my Far Cry 2 review on this site.
I'd say consider dropping the "worst" 10 dollar games to at least 6 dollars, like Gothic 3: EE, Empire Earth 3, MoO3, etc. (Hey, looks like third times a curse /here/ ... :P); of course, you'd have to convince people (publishers?) to do this.
While I like games being super cheap, GOG already sells pretty much all of its games for quite an affordable price, and the limited-time sales are most reliable for stimulating sales temporarily. Not that I'm saying I'd complain if GOG was ok with making its cheap games even cheaper. :D
While it makes sense if a game is hardly selling at all to reduce its price in an attempt to increase sales, this is most likely up to the individual publishers and not just GOG.
sounds very interesting.
Iphones make money on 99 cent games so could GOG I am sure.
Some titles should probably drop down to that price range anyway. It would be great to see more sales, or maybe coupons.
I am especially talking about the much older Games. GOG can introduce those with a lower pricerange.
Agreed, they already do this.
didn't I read something a while ago about stuff like steam sales bringing down the "value" of games?
Ditto. Dropping the price on a "bad" or low selling game will not make it sell, it just makes less money if/when it's sold. I buy a few games when there on sale but I'm not going to buy a game coz it's cheep (crap is crap).
GOG already does this with weekend sales and "Gems of the week." Having it time limited likely stimulates sales more than a permanent price drop. So, not a good suggestion IMO.
