Well that dropped in price super quick. Really can’t see why. /s
Because the game is not great ?
Because the game is dumb?
Because the game is broken?
I've heard 3 different opinions about this game (that it's not great, that it's dumb, and that it's broken) but what is actually wrong with the game? I've also heard that it's a good game, so why has it dropped so quickly and suddenly.
Most likely because of the bad reviews.
Look at what happened with Fallout 76. Same situation. Bad reviews and bad word of mouth = fire sale.
Much like most online looter shooters, they will get better over time, but Anthem is severely lacking in any sort of end game and the loot issue is downright baffling. All sorts of serious issues are tied into the actual engine, so its not going to be a quick fix.
This would of hurt EA a lot more than Bethesda. Rumored 6 year development time from their once flagship studio would of cost them a fortune.
Good EA are the worst - i hope they go under
@Pastry: I wish that too, but while the FIFA guys keep buying packs, they'll be laughing to the bank and produce shit forever more.
For a very in-depth video on why (including story spoilers) check out this.
The endgame loot drops are off. The chances of getting a legendary is quite low and when you do it doesnt have the best stats most of the time. i think bioware is very focused on that right now.
I don't even blame EA, I blame Bioware 100% in this one.
Just some of the things wrong with it.
6 years of work to create a game no one likes. Sounds like Mass Effect Andromeda. EA deserves this fail for buying out Bioware and gutting it.
@FeZZa21: The thing is i loved the ME series so MEA hurt a lot more the same could be said with DA2 and DAI which were SJW rubbish i give ZERO f***s about Anthem…
It's fun but the playstyle gets old too quickly for a 'games as a service' model. Imagine a single player game like Devil May Cry 5 being a 9hr game to complete, yet having better mechanics and more replay value.
Endgame loot drops are barely worth the effort to farm. Imagine playing for 8 hours a day and only get a decent drop once per month.
eveeything you hated about destiny? well here you have it! you would think after those other similar games already punished from their mistakes they would know what to avoid
It's cool at first but gets old and boring really quickly.
My first time playing I liked it then after the first mission you goto town. They cripple your walking speed to something insanely slow after your have been flying around and jetting around in a Mech. It is just frustrating.
Next time you get into a mission the fun part wears off, I also had issues continuing along the story as noone was playing so I couldn't find a squad to play with.
Really glad I got it for free with origin access. I would be pissed if I paid for it. You spend more time frustrated with the game and in loading screens than actually having fun.
Because the game is massively overrated?
Because it is EA's game?
Price is for PS4 only.
I prefer Australian Anthem
Is this the flying Fallout 76 game
Is this better than Diablo on mobile?
You've got a PS4 don't you?
Sad that eb games trade 2 for 1 game deal isn't on anymore. Would have traded 2 anthems for a sekiro or DMC 5…
Pretty sure JB Hi-Fi still do the 2 for 1 trade in deal.
Sekiro is only $62 anyway. Not much of a saving.
True. Also, can't get two of these to trade…

Thanks, just brodened it and will be lining up at: https://au.webuy.com/product-detail/?id=5030940121492&catego...
They will only offer “full price” for one. Any higher quantity gets discounted. Don’t get your hopes up.
I'm pretty happy with this and Fallout 76. Both of these games, along with No Man's Sky at launch have really made me excited for the future of gaming.
beep beep beep
My sarcasm detector is going off the charts!
Lol for a game that can brick a PS4 this price is too much.
i doesnt actually brick ps4's
Apparently it does, since it shuts it down as if you pulled the chord and can corrupt it.
I think he said that he doesn't actually brick PS4's (in broken English) :P
@Where's_That_Cake: Ah yes, you’re quite right. HappyXD doesn’t brick PS4s. Good guy HappyXD.
@Where's_That_Cake: Absurd what people accuse me of
Waiting for $10.
No interest in this game, ever. But holy shit, that's a drop and a half.
Give it another month and it'll be $9 like battlefront 2.
And also a dead multiplayer game
Battlefront 2 was $5 recently. I got it for free from Amazon.
Cheaper than GTA V a game released 6 years ago.
Will wait untill its less than $10, curious to see why its so bad but hard to justify still $30 when it doesn't look like its improving. Maybe 6 months time might be better.
It's major design issues. I don't think 6 mo would be enough to fix all of the problems.
Don't even bother with it even when it's free. There's just way too many good games out there to waste time on stuff like this.
When will EA ever learn?
Learn that they need to close Bioware? They are already in the process.
6 years in the making
I know that this is only on sale for PS4, but for Xbox One will this eventually go in the vault for ea access?
It's already on 10 hour trial I believe, which to me seems enough time to establish whether you like it enough to buy a copy, or are well and truly done. But yes, I would be surprised if this wasn't announced as going in the vault during an E3 presentation.
The Bioware now is not the same as the Bioware that made Mass effect and DAO, all the key creators have left
i Bought it a few weeks ago for my sons bday how likely would Amazon be to refund me the difference so I don’t return it?
Tell 'em (nicely) the game is shiet and unplayable. They will refund you.
Found it. I knew I saw it few days ago.
You can return it if still sealed. I once asked for a refund of the difference on an item but the proximity of purchase was much less than yours. However, they said they were only doing it as a 'once off exception', but I got the distinct impression that anyone who asked would get this exception every time they asked.
Amazon must be browsing this website on a regular basis as they seem to price match quite quick!
Why is it only the ps4 copy 😢
