Starfield fans are concerned over in-game economy after seeing prices

Starfield fans are concerned over in-game economy after seeing prices

Starfield's in-game burgers have been raising serious concerns.

Starfield fans have a serious new concern about the game based on the extortionate prices of the in-game burgers. Yes, really.

Up to this point, the majority of worries about Starfield have centred around its performance on consoles. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I’m sure you’ll have heard that Bethesda’s space-exploration RPG will be locked at 30fps on Xbox Series X and S - some have been so upset about this news that they’ve launched a petition in an attempt to get it boosted to 60fps, but the likelihood of that happening prior to launch is near zero.

Take a look at the story trailer for Starfield below.

Now though, eagle-eyed fans have spotted a tiny detail which they believe might point to a bigger problem - the seemingly unbalanced in-game economy. Over on the r/Starfield subreddit, user Mr_Twiddles pointed out that one tasty Patty Melt has a value of 295 credits. Yum. This means basically nothing until you compare it to the price of one of the spaceships, though - as seen during the recent Starfield Direct, one particular ship (the Ecliptic Stiletto II, to be exact) has a value of 19,054 credits, which is the same price as about 65 fancy burgers. That seems… a bit off.

Others on Reddit think that we might be underestimating how good the burger is, though: “You don't know enough about the supply or demand for Patty Melts in the 24th century to make that statement,” Str-Dim wrote. “A good Patty Melt is absolutely worth it,” Lwmons commented. “They’re really good Patty Melts,” added amazingdrewh.

There’s a chance that these in-game prices could change between now and release, and on the whole, this probably isn’t something to get too concerned about. I really want to try one of those Patty Melts now, though.
