$70 let alone $60 for a game is too much. Costs are going up, but that is a publisher decision that shouldn't pass what they wanted to spend on development to the consumer. Gaming is bigger than ever, so prices staying the same is balanced out by this. Also considering digital sales are on a huge rise means more revenue for the publishers since there is no cost of manufacturing, retailer cut, shipping, etc. On top of that microtransactions and DLC in games are costing more in a way.
So why are people defending Sony, Activision, and other companies when there is literally no reason for a price increase on base games? Especially Demon's Souls a game that is a 1:1 remake of a PS3 game. Ratchet and Clank Reboot, Shadow of Colossus, Crash N Sane Trilogy, and Spyro Reignited Trilogy all came out at $40.
