13,99€ here. Though, with the amount of content the game currently has, 9,99 would have been more reasonable.

I'd have to agree. I got Portal 2 for 9.99 USD, and this game (valued off what I got out of Portal 2) was certainly not 13 USD worth of game.

However, I do quite enjoy it and look forward to future content.

Was Portal 2 released at $9.99? No... no it definitely was not :rolleyes:

More like 49,95

When did I say it was released for 9.99? I said I purchased it for such the same week I bought QUBE, and based solely off of that, I don't feel QUBE is worth 12.50 or 15.00 in terms of content.

I think 9.99 would be a more reasonable pricepoint for it.

Q.U.B.E. is not bad for a $15 game, but I agree that $10 or less would have been a more appropriate price for what you are getting.

Portal 2 is an AAA title, that was released 1 year ago, made by a team of >50 people with millions of dollars inverted in it, it was also released at 50 bucks.

You can't compare those 2.

This game is worth it's 13,99€.

It's the price of a Black Ops DLC, which imho isn't worth 13,99€.

Razor2: Hidden Skies is valued at 8,99€, now that is overpriced because it has some serious issues and lacks content.

Another example is Zeitē which costs 9,99€, I'll complain about the price on that one 'cause it doesn't even work on Windows 7 SP1 64-bit while the store page says it works on Win7.

On the other hand you then have games like Terraria, Cave Story+, the Gundemonium Collection, Jamestown, Limbo, etc... which are games I like evenly or more then QUBE and cost less.

You know what, what you think the game is worth is all personal oppinion, some think it's worth it some don't. If you don't just wait untill it's on sale and pay less.

I agree, it can't be compared to Portal 2, nor even Portal 1. Kind of silly to compare games because Portal 2 goes on sale, thus is equal it price.

Can't even compare it fairly to Portal 1 because it was made by Valve that has huge amount resources supporting its development, and then it was packaged in the Orange box. However, the success of Portal goes far beyond the efforts that went into creating and marketing the game, Portal went viral. Its like a rookie in baseball playing in the world series, and at his very first time at bat in a professional game, he hits a grand slam to win the series. Portal 1 is the type of game that comes along only once every 10 years.

Your message reads like Portal 1 was only available as part of The Orange Box.

Yes, Portal has been sold as independent game, but that was outside the scope of the my original comment, so I did not point it out specifically. Comments are best when they are focused and do not include surrounding details unless relevant.

Not that it really matters, but when the Orange Box was first released, it was the only way to get the games included in it. It was not possible to buy any of them separately until a few months later.
