I quote this from MakeUseOf site.

So, really, you'd be paying way, way upwards of the $70 price-tag games are going to be sold for.

I can't find out the structure of this sentence, and further more, don't know whether it's a sentence or not.

What I can do is..

  • You : Subject
  • 'd : auxiliary verb
  • be paying : verb(intransitive?)
  • way, way upwards of (adjective)

after 'of': 'the $70 price-tag games are going to be sold for.' should be a phrase, but this is clause. I couldn't figure the structure of this sentence out.

    It's the same as "So, really, you'd be paying way, way upwards of the $70 price-tag that games are going to be sold for." There are several questions on here about that-deletion which should explain more.

    'So' and 'really' are pragmatic markers ... the first a connective, possibly explanatory, and the second modal or veridical (expressing an estimate of probability / accuracy). Sep 13 at 10:27
