It's a shame they didn't make it an extra £5 cheaper because I think it would begetting snapped-up. Seeing as this is probably an experiment to see if vaguely sensible digital pricing can make people bite, it'd be a shame if they judge it to be a failure just because the price is still a little too high.

Companies need to pitch digital copies at the upper limit of the "impulse buy" category; and I think £25 is still a little too high for that.

Really games companies want to force us to buy digital so that the profit per game is far higher for the designer with the middle-man effectively eliminated. You'd have thought that they'd realise that if you can't force console designers to go fully digital in their design, then another way to attack the problem is to price physical copies out of existence by massively undercutting them with digital pricing. Then come the next gen, they'd have free-reign to hike the digital copies back up to £55 a pop and people would just have to suck it up or quit gaming.

Guess you can't please everyone, if they'd priced it at £20 I bet you'd be complaining that's still too high and it should be £10-15. Why don't they just give them away?
It took ni no kuni months before it dropped to a sensible price on the psn.

£25 is very reasonable for two full games that you could easily spend 50+ hours on each, that's 25p per hour of gameplay, and if you play like I do it will be closer to 100hours per game...It's a bargain at this price.

I would have cancelled my pre-order and got this but I don't want to lose my pre-order for FFX/X-2 LE for some reason Zavvi won't let me cancel only one title....also knowing me if I like the game i'll end up buying a physical copy like I did with Tales of Vesperia.

If you want the game for closer to £20 the solution is simple, goto CDkeys.com, add the £25 credit to you basket for £22.10, then at the top of the page click on the 'Like us on facebook for 5% discount' add the code to the basket and voila the game will now have cost you £20.99 making it £14 cheaper the cheapest physical copy, which I believe is at Shopto.

My point wasn't that £25 isn't a good price compared to the physical release. It was that I still don't believe it's cheap enough to compensate for the ability to trade it in being taken away.
