Next Gen Games Pack Big Price Tags

Posted by Oscar M. Cantu Categories: Video Games

EA Next Gen MaddenDuring Sony’s annual retailer gathering Destination Playstation, Sega announced that the price of their video games for next generation consoles will most likely start at $59.99. They went on to speculate that EA Sports games could start at a bank-breaking $69.99. That’s roughly a $10-$30 price increase from the current pricing scheme. However, if the games are worth it, gamers are sure to cough up the dough – especially when NFL games are EA exclusive. We can probably expect to see something similar to the Platinum Hits category Xbox currently employs to help entice more game sales.

And they wonder why people bootleg their #### and emulate it.  I well, sucks to be them.

$50 was already too much, im going to mod my next system

this greater-than-$50 pricepoint is pretty rediculous. they’re going to have a lot of people waiting for when they get on clearance.

what are we going to see in the next 10 yrs? 100 dollar games?

It costs almost $10 to see a movie or $20 -$25 to buy the DVD, that’s only 2 hours of entertainment. I’d say most games provide well over 10-12 hours of game play, making a $50 - $60 price tag actually quite a bargain.

I don’t know how many times someone has to point this out, but NES and SNES and N64 games all had at least a some of their games priced more than $50 in their days. Factor in inflation from the last 20 years and we’re paying much less for games than we were back then.

$60 does seem like a lot.  But if all of the graphics look like this then it might be worth it.
