Game - Silent Hill Homecoming
Metascore - 64
Release date - Nov 6, 2008

Price: $39.99?!?!?!?? :eek::eek::eek:

This is the only offering on Steam of the entire Silent Hill series, and it's arguably the *worst* one, and it's over 3 years old, yet it's priced like a new AAA title?

Seriously?

I'd love to see the other pc versions on here...but this is just...ridiculous.

Japanese game companies are not exactly known for their aggressive PC pricing policies.

Wut? Origins isn't on Steam (that's a psp game), Homecoming is.

Valve doesn't set the prices. The publishers do. Sure, Valve probably advises them about price changes, but if the publisher says no, then the price doesn't change.

It's been that price for years. Some publishers put stuff on Steam and forget all about it. Valve doesn't change the price for them they only discount it sometimes during sale.

Because Konami thinks this horrible abomination is way to prestigious to have it's price lowered more than once a millenium, so they keep it at $40.

It's a terrible game for a Silent Hill game. It's way too difficult, the controls are weird as hell for a Silent Hill game, and the storyline veers a bit off the beaten path. I feel Pyramid Head was only an element in this game to capitalize on his popularity in the Silent Hill film. I enjoyed Silent Hill 4 more than this one. It's not worth $10 in a bargain bin let alone 39.99.
