According to an interview on MSXbox-World.com Halo 3, which offered about 5-8 hours of gameplay, is longer than its next installment Halo 3: ODST. I know that it may have great replay value, and the multiplayer might be amazing, but should a game which is shorter than its predecessor have the same price tag? I don’t have anything against Bungie or Microsoft, and I have no doubt that ODST will be a great game, but could they drop the price at least $10 since it’s a shorter game? I know all of our pockets sure would appreciate a slight price drop.
That being said, I cant wait for this game to come out, it should be an awesome game from an already proven studio. And perhaps THAT is why they can keep the price up where they want to and people will still buy it. I know I will.
