Most expensive PS4 game

47 posts in this topic

We can't really include the price of the VR set. By that rationale, all Platinums are expensive because they technically require you to buy a TV and a PS4. And electricity. Etc.

I hate this stupid flawed argument. Even when factoring all those things, it's still $800+ to play this over other PS4 games.

No, it's not. It's $400 if you wish to buy the bike. The price of VR is not part of this because it's not solely for this game, whereas the bike is not for anything but this game.

The price of VR is as relevant as the price of a PS4, a TV, electricity, etc. Commodities you already own that are not exclusive to this game without any other purpose.

The bike *WAS* required. Are you just ignoring that fact on purpose? It was the whole premise of this thread when the port was announced and I knew about it from Steam.

 

Yes it is because those added cost just negate themselves in your nonsensical straw man argument. In order for me to play the PS4 Play Room game, I needed to acquire a PS camera, that was an added cost over other free games. It was something like $80 to $100 when it first came out? So that was roughly a$20 to $40 increase to play it over playing a brand new $60 game. It's math, I don't know how you can argue against that.

What he's saying is that the PS VR isn't only for this game, but can also be used for other games like Farpoint, by that logic every VR game costs 400$+the price of the game according to you.

 

The bike on the other hand is exclusive for this game, which means you will expend 400$ in a thing that can only be used in this game and nothing more and since you need it its ok to add it to the total price of the game, but the PS VR has a lot more uses than this game.

 

The next thing you gonna say is that every VR game costs +800$ since you need a PS4 and a PS VR.

I already said that the bike was required, so to say the game costs $400 is very reasonable and factual. However, the VR is not part of the price of the game. That's something you could already own with or without this game.

I can't play Uncharted 4 without a PS4. I also can't play it without a TV. By that rationale, Uncharted 4 costs $60 + $300 + $500-2500. I'm saying that's a flawed argument. I would use the PS4/TV for all sorts of things so they can't be added to Uncharted's budget.

Jamberman gets it.

I don't think it is excessively expensive considering what it is. Would be very interesting to hear from anyone who has tried it.

 

On a straight cost I think Lego Dimensions is well over $500 to acquire all the characters and packs

No, that's the argument you guys are making. If you're collecting trophies, then you already own a PS4. All PS4 games require a PS4, so that's negated as an added cost because it's required period.

However, for this specific FREE title if you wanted to play it then you would need to buy a VR. Not everyone already has one or has the expandable income to go get one, so I was trying to save people time and from wasting bandwidth downloading this.

I try to make an informative and helpful thread but people just come and shit on it.

So this doesn't require the bike now?

It isn't but as far as I can tell - you can't earn trophies.

I went on it for an hour or so and tried out 4 of the game modes but when I held the PS button and went to trophies in the pop-up - it said none. so it appears if you start the game without the bike then you can't earn any. So I guess it's more like a demo-mode for you to try out. It's a shame as the rodeo game and the duck pond are actually quite fun.

Ok so it's happening for you too, the trophy list doesn't show?

 

I actually got the bike and I don't have a trophy list. In-game I've reached about 4 trophies now but the game itself shows as not having a list. The developers are looking into it but no fix.

ahhh okay - I thought it was because I opted to play without the bike (wanted to see what it was like). I'm guessing once they patched out the need for the bike it probably messed it up

Well if you take in the fact that some very limited edition collectors editions that includes consoles/games/figurines/etc. some of those can cost upwards of $1000+

But yeah, this thing is pretty expensive too

You can play any PS4 game without a TV, as long as you have PSVR.

Would this track 'calories' accurately if I was playing on the Vita via Remote Play? 😋

It's seriously just an old petal exercise bike for those of you who don't want to take a look. 

So basically Cyberbike 2 then.

Guys tell me how to spend calories? Traveled 15 km and spent 0 calories. There is no bike. Or does it need a bicycle?
Just interested in the question about the summit, climb 100km. What mini game is responsible for the height?

You need to bike. You can't burn calories by using your fingers...

I dunno. I bought a really expensive game the other day. It was on sale for £15, but I needed a PS4 to play it on, so that means it’s more like £250. But then I realised I needed a TV, so after going out and buying that for £750, I was starting to think “Man, this game is expensive”. But then I needed a house to put all these things in, otherwise how the hell am I gonna play this game?! I tell ya, that’s the last time I buy a video game!

 

Obviously, I’m being sarcastic. But for good reason. You can’t just add on the cost of a PSVR and accessories and call that the price of the game. If you do it to this game, why not every PSVR game? Every PSVR game basically costs about $300 then, right? If you add on the cost of a headset, why not a PS4? You need both to play the game. Where do you stop? You can see now how ridiculous the whole thing is, no?

You don't need to use the bike in this game. You must need the PS4 Wireless Controller instead of the bike.

Its half and half acctually. You do need the BIKE to get the calories burned / resistance / and consecutive days, trophys. However you can get the other miscellaneous trophys with just the CONTROLLER like how far you have traveled and how many apples eaten  , horses saved etc.
