Cheaper than CS: Source?
Was just wondering, CS:Source is sold for $19.99 but CS:GO is priced at $14.99. Any ideas why?

I was wondering too, because GO obviously is the better game.

Because CS:GO is CS:S 2 (at least this is what many people think)

I didn't know about that actually

A downloadable xbox game costs either 20, 15 or less dollars, they went with 15 and sell it on PC for the same price.

if it can be sold for $20, then why not sell it for that price? :O

but what you said does sort of make sense though...

Valve wants to shift focus from older counter strikes to GO and thus making GO cheaper.

Because it runs on the same engine it doesn't mean it's the same game. And it's really not.

This seems to be the most likely reason though

It is not that NEW and innovative as the game media and Valve estimates... It is like slightly reworked Counter-Strike Source engine code. Nothing worth the price of a new game. Well if CS:GO was something like CoD:MW2/BF3 it would have been a revolution to the series, but not this...

"Nothing worth the price of a new game"
Would you have bought it at full price though? I know that I won't

No of course. I said I will not pay such a price for a game that looks as if it is using the finest mods. I am glad its price is not higher than CS:S's

Better said CS:S is C.S 1.7 , CS GO differs in many things from other CS games, new weapons, new game modes,competitive, different weapon properties, improvement of graphics...

Same concept. different skins different sounds different names. Oh... and a added competitive mode to make people think that playing a scrim style match with random players is competitive.

GO has proven to be the better game - I don't know why people haven't changed...
