I'm aware of inflation, but sticker-shock is a thing too. Back in the late PS1 era, new games were $39.99 USD. Then it went to $49.00. Then to $59.00. Now, they're selling some for $69.00, which to me, is already too much. So going higher than that is just a hard no--even with inflation. If prices keep going up, I'll probably end up reverting back to the way my parents spent money on them back in the 80's and early 90's. I'll buy like four during the course of a console cycle, and that's about it. The rest will be rentals.
