Thoughts on 70$ games next gen?

I'm happy with it, more money=better value 6 5.77%
 
I'm ok with it 26 25.00%
 
Don't like it, but will tolerate it 30 28.85%
 
Completely against it, won't tolerate it 42 40.38%
 
Total:104

I think if it were to prevent mandatory practices like day one DLC and microtransactions it would be OK. But since this is not going to be the case... If we consider that nowadays the "finished" version of a game can lack important story chapters (for single player mode) and a Season Pass can cost up to 40 dollars, we are virtually paying 100 usd for a game.

And for multi-player, even worse than selling X weapon for Y amount of in game mine that converts to 10 usd and give the player an unfair advantage against others, it's the loot boxes that are a gamble mechanism.

How can they have the balls to increase the prices of games when the current pricing is already unfair? Look at the PS Store prices. Digital games should be way cheaper for obvious reasons, yet they are exactly the same. They don't want to lower the prices in order to make even more money out of them. And now they want to increase the price even more on both physical and digital? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I find incredibly funny how people are trying to defend this bullshit with inflation, increased developement costs etc... when the truth is that gaming companies never play fair with customers and they always try to milk us in every way they can invent and imagine. This right here is nothing new: it's just them seeing if they can tighten the rope a little more. But I think this is the drop that fills the glass.



As long as Ninty doesn't start charging $70 for 720p titles, I'm cool. Already dealt with the steep N64 price tags back in the day. I understand that the cost of making games has increased greatly since the early 00s.

The difference is the cartridge itself. Manufacturing them and putting games inside them were more expensive than on cd. 



Prices here already scalated from 200 to 280.

It should raised alot again if that happens.

Probably to 350.

Azzanation: "PS5 wouldn't sold out at launch without scalpers."

All the games i buy are worth more than retail price. If a AAA is great, i'd pay easily up to a $100 and get my moneys worth. Some games are so good the devs deserve more money, more money to them/publishers might mean more games.



I will tolerate it because I have no choice

But I don't like it. 70 USD might now be expensive for an north american, but it's damn expensive for me



Combine this with your yearly subscription service. Then your $500 Next gen console will turn to $1000 real quick.



Pocky Lover Boy!

It's terrifying to think 3 years ago a game was about 20% (already fairly high) of the minimum wage 

And now it's on the verge to go as high as 35% lmao
