PS4 games will be more expensive.

21 replies 373 views Edited Jun 23, 2013

I'm checking my locals shop online page and I noticed that all ps4 games cost around 50£ when before they were around 40£. Are they really increasing in price or is it just guesing prices on shops mind?

Could just be placeholder prices, not sure about across the big pond where you are but looking at amazon, bestbuy, gamestop. They show no price increase in games from the PS3 to the PS4

Can't speak for Europe, but here in the US, everyone (Amazon, Best Buy, Gamestop, etc) has all AAA games listed as $59.99, which is the same as PS3 new releases.

Yeah all PS4 games are listed at the same price as PS3 games are. No increase here.

Here's something to read:


ARTICLE: Sony confirms $59.99 Price point

 

These are in US Dollars, but, I can tell you this: $59.9 is the current going rate for PS# and XB360 games when they are new.  So, in terms of MSRP, we are not seeing an increase.  In fact, if you factor in inflation, we are seeing a discounted price:

 

ARTICLE: If PS4 Games Only Cost $60, They're Actually Cheaper Than PS3 Games

 

So, I think your local shop is just not reading the news. Smiley Happy

Also, if games are really that much easier to develop for PS4, I cant see a justification for incresing the price, if anything they should lower it.
