What is the cost of a CE game for members with the 60% discount. My math apparently is not that good and here I used to make A's in math.

Thanx

This is a sale for both members and nonmembers, with the same cost of a CE for $7.99. wave12

I have a totally unrelated question about the games: When you are downloading, you see how large the file is for a particular game. One may be as little as 400-500, while another is over a gig. What do you suppose accounts for the difference in file size, assuming both games are approximately equal in content/playing time? Is it the difference in graphics?

It can also just have to do with the way they compress the files for the game. I remember years ago that a lot of people were assuming a particular title was a short game due to the file size, and it was actually quite long - it just had a really efficient file compression system. So, I don't feel like I can assume that it necessarily has any particular significance in terms of game content, quality, length, etc.

Thanks! I had not realized some games might be more compressed for transfer than others. That does relieve me of the concern about a given game being "short" based on its file size/download time. laugh

I can understand why you might have thought about it that way. I am just saying that it doesn't automatically signify something "lesser" in the ways that are important. wave12
