SiN - Most Expensive Game Yet?
Prepare to burn the wallet hard with the upcoming Sin Episodes by Ritual Entertainment.
Each "episode" release will cost $19.95 US by Steam (boxed versions to be more expensive).
With 9 episodes total, gamers will be paying a total of $179.55 for the complete game. Each "episode" is estimated at 6 hours of gaming, but for the typical FPS gamer, expect around 3 to 4.
Rip off or not? To put it into perspective, its around the rumoured price of Nintendo's upcoming console.

not one shooter brings us 35-50 hours of gaming and adapts itself in the process, it all depends on how they do it... we pay 50 euro's for a game, and sin gets 4 episodes at that price, with some breathing time in between (about 14-15 euros per episode)
max payne was 5 hours long, and that one was great but cost 50 euros
for this playing time over 9 episodes, if it ever gets to that, you would need a shooter and two expansion packs which would bringv you 50 euros + 25 + 25=100, these 9 are at 126...
difference isn't all that big...
