Film Theory: Is SAO the MOST EXPENSIVE GAME EVER? (Sword Art Online)

    How DEADLY is Death Note? ►►
    SWORD ART ONLINE is one of the most (in)famous anime out there today, and its premise is cooler than most whole shows. SAO is a fully immersive VR MMO-so immersive that people in the game can LITERALLY die from playing it. Needless to say, this sort of VR experience doesn’t exist yet, but we’re definitely creating the groundwork that will lead to this tech. But knowing how much our current VR systems cost, is a game like SAO even feasible for developers? How much would it cost to create something as ambitious as this? Well, Loyal Theorists, the answer is SO MUCH MORE than you expect!

    AGREED!!!! in the end, Reki Kawahira didn't spend much time thinking about the small details of his story. Hahaha... but I'm still a fan of SAO so f*ck it. I enjoyed this video though.

    No, no, no. You see, a game like this wouldn't sell for "60 dollars". It'd easily sell, to everyone for hundreds of dollars by todays standards. There are COUNTLESS people that would do most anything to experience that. I'd count myself among them. I'd sell one of my apartments just to be able to play something like that. Assuming it doesn't play out like SAO did, it's basically a chance at immortality in a fantasy world. Everyone's true dream come true.

    I don't mean to rain on your parade, but... The dungeon. (I admit I haven't read the books, so this may be unique to the anime, but.) Underneath the town of beginnings (Floor One), there is a dungeon. You can see it in the sideview and the 3D specs. It's reported in Yui's Heart that each level that gets cleared opens up a new portion of the dungeon beneath. The Aincrad on the box's dungeon matches well with the bottom quarter (plus a little) of the levels, but we're not certain, with how little emphasis so far has been on the lower dungeon, if the clearing of the upper levels makes new sections appear or simply unlocks them. A conservative estimate adding that in would be that art costs an extra third, and could possibly be twice as expensive as originally supposed.

    once again Mat Pat you ignore something simply because you refuse to think out side the confine you set for your work. this is a VR game that requires a head set to play it, the cost of the headset needs to be added in as well bumping price you gave up by another huge figure but also bumping the games price up too, probably by 500 dollar's.
    then there's selling the sensory data to other game developers who will want to use this new way of gaming, fees rolling in from that probably negate the amount of it, and then some, from the cost of the development.
