That's only from Tesco though isn't it? I've pre-oredered FM09 for 27.99 so it's not 40.00 everywhere.

You are getting ripped off! At HMV it's 29.99 which is what you expect to pay.

With Amazon's pre-order guarantee, I'm getting mine for 28, and it may well fall even more. Play.com did it so cheap last year, was about 15-20 I believe.

The shops buy stock from FM, the shops set the price. So blame whatever shop put that crazy price. ;)

Where did you see it for that price? Please post a screenie or link. 40 quid for a pc game is absolutely ridiculous.

In the spirit of the new decimalised player ratings, I will correct myself. :p

ASDA are doing it for 24.91!

Nope I'm pretty sure that's not legal ;)

I'm torn between ASDA and HMV, with HMV you do get a cool mouse with it as well :D (If you pre-order)

Only ones on Ebay atm are small dealers offering pre order and the price including delivery is never less than 30.

depends on who you ask. most people will say no its not legal but there are of course those who have different interpretations of intellectual property laws...

as for the thread starter. i know how you feel 350 - 400 kuna (cca 40-45 pounds) is a standard price of games in here. not even for new games mind you just for 99% of them. for example 2 year old championship manager for example is still going under that price.
sometimes some new games get 450-500 kuna (50-55 quid) price tag.

It is illegal, end of. If you see FM09 offered on any site other than the advertised ones you should report it.

It's very much illegal. It's stealing, just because it's being done electronically doesn't make it any less so.

Anyone that buys the game for 40 is a clown, shop around, the maximum price you would find for the game is 29.99.

i simply pointed out that some people have different interpretations of copy right infringement laws. read an article about it just couple of days ago. in short the philosophy is that copying a game is treated as stealing when in fact nothing is stolen since source is still there.

also not all countries have same laws about what is considered copy right infringement and what isn't. some countries, like china for example, have no protection on intellectual property whatsoever.

to give simply usa/western european interpretation of copy right infringement laws is not giving the complete picture.

It's quite clearly illegal. The laws are quite explicit in that respect.

Free personalised cover printing from Play.com and a free mouse from HMV for preorders!? I ordered from Game and all I'm getting are some lousy loyalty points.

It might not be Gears of War, it Might not be Fable 2, but I bet you'll play FM a hell of a lot more then you would those games.

Anyway, as with the general thought of the thread, if your paying 40, your being ripped off.

As has been mentioned, you're not paying for the game content and effort put in (although I consider these both substantial, especially the latter) but the entertainment and period of that entertainment. Fable II is a strong game, but I bet 99% of people will play FM far more!

I believe you can pick up FM for something like 25quid (in the UK)

What do you think?
People get the best games of the year days before release for free on private servers.

There are sites that are legal and others that are not. Most of them have their servers in other countries and use the private site on their own country.
