For some, Halo 3: ODST
's $60 price point has become a point of contention (though not for us
, we should note). And not for Bethesda production director Ashley Cheng either, who says on his blog
that, "reviewers are now mentioning that Halo 3: ODST
may not be worth the price point, that it should've been cheaper, etc. ... give me a break."
According to him, these complaints wouldn't be arising if it weren't for the game's "totally bungled" marketing campaign. "First saying it was a standalone expansion pack
, then coming out and saying wait, no, we're charging full price because - surprise! - we put 'more' stuff in it and it's called Halo 3: ODST
now, vs its original title, Halo 3: Recon
." Bungie has since justified the new price point
to us, though apparently for some that just wasn't enough.
