Are items overpriced?

21 replies 332 views Edited Nov 19, 2012

Okay so today I was looking in the exlusives store for the first time. I then saw one diamond suit and one gold suit for $15 each. Now I'm not trying to start a war here but don't you think at the least that's a little overpriced? Believe me I'll buy virtual items for $0.99 or maybe up to $7. But never 15. Leave your thoughts below on what you think is overpriced or your opinion on  prices for items.

Some people are status conscious and arent happy unless they can lord it over others hence they will pay the price.

Sony is purposely pricing these virtual items high to make them somewhat exclusive. While I'd NEVER pay that price for a virtual item, it allows others to pretend to be rich by spending an affordable amount to be different.

 

So as far as my opinion, I'd say no, they're not over-priced.

Some people buy the expensive things.  The way I see it, those that spend a lot of money cover the 90% that don't spend a dime.

 

The same thing applies in free MMO games.

Keep in mind that $15 includes both male and female. So it's essentially $7.50

There's always people with more money than sense. While the Exclusives are overpriced and tacky, they make useful "I'm stupid and unloved" signs. If you happen to come across one, smirk and keep walking.

 

I feel worse for the schmucks who paid $50 to play No Man's Land or Home Tycoon.

I don't even bother with the Exclusives store. Most everything you will ever need is in the other stores.
