That means $23.99 if you live in the US and have a Best Buy gamers' club discount.
Awesome deal.

I bet that Sega will use a similar strategy of Sonic Mania:

- U$19.99 (digital ordinary version)
- U$69.99 (collector's edition)

So I think they will announce a more expensive version soon !

I like this price. It's fair for the first day fans and new fans they will play both games the very first time.

I wonder me that Yu Suzuki was not at the Event.

He was working, most likely.

There's still a dividing line between HD and III that we don't know is going to be bridged yet. Symbolically trotting him out would have been nice, but I dunno if either party wants to start muddying the water on the degrees of separation between SEGA's project and YSnet's project just yet.

For example - there have been plenty of comments already from puzzled people about HD coming to Xbox and proclaiming III will be coming too, as they're ignorant to the licencing arrangement that meant III could get made.

Prices will definitely vary if you're purchasing from an online retailer, but this is a perfectly reasonable RRP if you're unfortunate enough to have to go down the retail route.

Perfect price. I was expecting $40, this is a steal.

That I do. Time to empty out the store if they're on shelves for too long lol.

Assuming it will have all the arcade games, I think $29.99 would be a fair price even for only an arcade collection of Hang-On, Space Harrier, Outrun and After Burner.

When we were speculating about the remasters, before the announcement, I always thought they would sell both games separately for around $19.99 each. So this is incredible value.

That's a good price, but it was logical, it's an HD release, when we see the prices of other HD games (FFXII, Shadow of Colossus Kingdom Hearts HD...), it's around that price too.

Oh man, if they do do a 'collector's edition', it'll be the first I ever buy. I kinda hope they do! How badass would a Dreamcast inspired designed case be too?

I think it's a good price, but to be honest, if it was $60, I'd have still paid it.

I never intended to go beyond the initial post asking for help, but I had to reply to the nonsensical accusations of certain hate-fueled individuals.



I don’t quite understand how someone that claims to be poverty stricken can own a PS4 and multiple games. I’ve lived with no money in the past, and there was absolutely no way I could even have fathomed owning a latest gen games console at the time. Asking for a free game is in very poor taste, especially given the circumstances I mention above.

Back on topic, 29.99 is a much better price that I had envisaged.
