Deal of the Day: Time Crisis 4 for $80

How can an $80 game ever be a deal? Well, when it includes the Guncon 3. Namco Bandai's upcoming Time Crisis 4 is a pricey purchase thanks to the bundled peripheral. However, it promises to be the most advanced light gun on the market. Hopefully, we'll see other games support the Guncon -- it would be a total waste to just make a single game for it. The PSN is a perfect place for Namco Bandai (or any other publisher) to release small new light gun games. (Of course, we hope Sega realizes how perfect it would be to bring Let's Go Jungle! to the system ... ) is offering the game and gun peripheral for $80. Yes, it's a bit much, but it's probably the cheapest pre-order you'll find right now.

2. Graphically this game isn't great. But the entertainment value of arcade like weapons in your own home is promising.

I'm still on the fence though. I don't know too many other games that can use this peripheral. If your nice you could list some for me.

3. as far as overpriced games that come with peripherals go, this is right up there with guitar hero and rock band. decisions, decisions.

5. I was about to order it. But with the Orange! gun I held back. Also are their any videos demonstrating the Guncon

6. of course other games will use it, like a new house of the dead game maybe, and time crisis 5! im sure other games'll use it, though those games are probably a long way off.

7. I might have to paint & black nail polish the gun. Hmm

10. IGN has some previews and whatnot.

Honesty I don't care. Orange is orange. It's a color, just like the other colors.

11. I think they are required to use an "orange" color gun so it doesn't look like a real gun at all. They don't want kids carrying around something like that.

Posted at 7:28AM on Oct 26th 2007 by JoeBears

12. If it includes the foot pedal like the arcade version then it's a definite buy!

Posted at 7:42AM on Oct 26th 2007 by MARKTW

13. Duck Hunt anyone? Srsly!

Posted at 9:06AM on Oct 26th 2007 by JerJerBinks

14. Never mind the orange, is that a cord? Pass.

15. I've bought every Time Crisis so far for home use and I plan on picking this one up as well.

Posted at 10:26AM on Oct 26th 2007 by Kryptinite
