I’m not sure that’s true . The biggest sellers this gen , certainly on ps , have all been Between the 30-70 hour mark . In fact the top 15 are all that sort of length . 

 

 

 

So from wikipedia The top 15 are with cross references of time from Time to Beat for the main story.

 

1) GTA5 - 31 hours

2) Uncharted 4 - 15 hours 

3) Marvel's Spider-man - 16 hours

4) The Witcher 3 - 51 hours

5) God of War - 20.5 hours.

6) The Last of Us Remastered - 14.5 hours

7) Horizon Zero Dawn - 22.5 hours

8) Gran Turismo Sport - 11 hours **

9) Monster Hunter World - 49 hours

10) The Last of Us Part 2 - 22 hours

11) Final Fantasy VII remake 33.5 hours

12) Persona 5 - 97 hours

13) Detroit Become Human - 12 hours

14) Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy - 14.5 hours

15) Final Fantasy XV - 28 hours

 

So from looking at that the majority are less than 30 hours, with 50+ hours being real outliers. To be fair I'm surprised some of those games are actually that long.

 

Something that's obviously pretty difficult to get hold of is how long the majority of players actually played those games for.

I've completed about ten of those games and they all took me waaaay longer to beat than those times listed there. Are those times just to mainline the story and do absolutely nothing else?

I don't know Time to Beat as a source? Is that someone with predetermined knowledge ploughing through only the essential quests in order to see the final story cutscene? I'd be surprised if many people beat UC4 in 15 hours on their first go, for example.

It's user-reported and averaged out. It's probably on the lower side- the sort of people who report to game completion time sites are probably pretty game-savvy.

We had a topic on it recently. It Lists all kinds of data with regards to timings, so it has a median and shortest - longest times across, campaign, campaign +extras. completioninst.

 

Example here is God of Wars entry https://howlongtobeat.com/game?id=38050

 

Admittedly it's all self report from a number of people but it's the best resource I can find. 

 

Conversly to @Majora the three games I've completed on that list (HZD, God of War an Spider-man) I took less time than I've quoted from Time to Beat, and yes they are just the main storyline. 

 

EDIT: Just remembered that I've also completed TLOU:Remastered, no idea how long that took me but I did just try and get it over with so probably less time than that again.

I think most, of not all of those time to beat hours are somewhat inaccurate .. having played all of them except crash , I can comfortably add at least 50% to every estimate.

The list says “ time to complete main story “ so I assume ignores any side quests etc .

If that £349 price for the digital version is correct I think I’m going to get that one, that’s an amazing price. 

Where did you hear that? Good price if true.

the problem taking the Main Story figure is that this is GTA. Who the hell just main lines a GTA game. Your lucky to find someone who actually does the main story.

 

 

As for the discussion on a price. For the last 20 years or so I’ve said £1 per hour = value for money. However it’s a bit more complicated than that. A good game time for me is probably around the 18 hour mark. That’s meaty. Let’s face it, anything around the 50-75 hour mark is full of sub par shite. Might be a great game but there’s no doubt a lot to filler in there.

Everyone I know who bought the game(GTA V) played it till the very end. Why wouldn't you?

While we were having this discussion today my son has spent $20 on a Captain America skin for Fortnite. I can see why traditional game developers could be tearing their hair out when we’re arguing over the value of full games while Epic are raking it in.

There's no way that any version of the PS5 is going to have an RRP/MSRP of under £400 at launch. That's nuts.

I really think it will or it’s dead in the water - no console on the market has done well over £400.

It's not going to happen. Both consoles will be £450+

Most rumours are below that and stating a £100 difference between the two versions, that would make the disc version £550 - I can’t see that happening. These are mass market devices and they will not gain traction at those prices. They’ll take a hit on the hardware if they have to, especially the digital version.

 I didn't. it got very repetitive and I hate the controls. Mushy and imprecise. Not to mention the world just feels like a set.. no real interactivity its all just for show.

 

I know I'm alone but I find the series really, really shallow. I love RDR2 though, so go figure.

I always thought the shallowness was part of the schtick to be honest! I loved it, but it's a cold, dead thing compared to the wonder of RDR2 for me :)

That makes sense. Never played RDR2, but I enjoyed the first one. Slow paced and a lot more relaxing to play.

I hope Last of Us Remastered is longer than that because if that's true I'm 2/3rds through and the much praised plot could so far be described as "Man tries to save 3 women, fails twice".

That same guess in the thread also thought it'd be cheaper here than in the US, which I'm taking as an indication of its likely accuracy.

The PS4 and PS4 Pro launched at £349. The PS5 has an SSD that's going to cost more than the HDD they currently use. Then there's the fact that our currency is fucked.

Yep, I'm expecting £449 for the full fat version, and £100 drop to the download only.

Which is why releasing it at a higher price would mean a lot less sales.

I don’t think you really understand the meaning of currency is fucked. Why sell a console that’s in short supply at $350 in the U.K. when you can sell it for $500 in the US?

£350 would be knee tremblingly good. I think that would push enough people to get it and then pay the £65 pound a game that a few people have already said they're happy to pay.

 

I still think the all digital version will be 400 though.
