For example a heavy discount if you buy and customize pairs of prostethics at once.
Maybe we'd start to see people getting turned into robots bit by bit if it became even more accessible, instead of them getting vatted over and over. (Or instead of suicides after limb loss, which is economically understandable, but silly.) And that would be a hundred times more interesting.
Customization is a choice, not a default, and there are forms of customization that cost no chyen at all unless the doctor asks for payment.
@colors cyberware and help cyber-design are great files to review before consulting with your local cyberneticist for consultation.
Sure it could be cheaper, but their are ways around the hard costing of everything thing in this game, get hustling.
Regarding the system itself, I cannot wait to see what comes next, the system is.. to quote mirage 'shit' when you actually put it under any strain.
I am hoping for dynamic naked pairing as a baseline which can extend to robots, cyberware and bio-mods as an elegant solution, but we will see what the wonderful staff cook up.
Ever excited to see what is next!
Don't get me wrong, I'd always go for the chrome if possible, for the reasons you listed, but hearing IC about people suiciding over limb loss (all the caveats apply of course: might be misinformation, might be old stories from before the change, etc.) makes me wonder if the prices really are the right spot.
@Mirage: Why not? I figure that would make for a good story and be more interesting than just waking up in a vat. I have no idea if and how crippling that could be to playing the game though.
Just my two cents. I haven't looked at the price of cyberlimbs since the changes but I support them being more easily accessible for the less wealthy.

I am just a little confused at the stance to not encourage it now.
Willingly lopping off limbs, removing large portions of your head or eyes, replacing internal organs for the aesthetic? Chummer, you got a screw loose. (not that its not cool, but from a bystander standpoint)
