playstation 4 games 100.00$ a piece

12 replies 357 views Edited Apr 22, 2013

So I was just doing some random browsing and saw the preorder setups for the new ps4 games on Amazon. Apparently the new games will be 100$ each. If you don't believe me here's a link to it:

http://www.amazon.com/Assassins-Creed-4-playstation/dp/B00BMFIXOW/ref=pd_sim_sbs_vg_2

while that is troubling here is a bigger issue. If the games cost 100$ how much is the new system going to cost. Some people are saying 400-500 dollars for the lower ended memory sizes which would put some launch bundles at about 700$+ for the larger hard drives. I would just like some input due to my decision with the next Gen systems with the release date already launched for the PS4 or if I should wait for the new Xbox. (currently codenamed Durango):  for curiosities sake.

This is how the world ends, This is how the world ends, This is how the world ends, not with a bang but a whimper.

No worries. I saw that too and freaked out. NOtice there's a message from Amazon that says that is not the price, it is there place holder price as they don't know what pricing will look like.

It's already been confirmed that games will range from Free - $60. 

To be honest, that news shocked me, as I was expecting games to be $70 (fitting the $10 increase per generation).

That`s a price holder price, the price of PS4 games will be the same as now, it was already confirmed. As places like amazon offer the lowest price for pre orders, and they didn`t know what to price it at, so they set it at a $100 just in case the prices are more then they thought, to be on the safe side.

The $100 price tags are simply placeholders, since the price of PS4 games has not been announced. When the regular price for the games is announced, the price on that page will be updated with the correct information.

All that needs to be said.

 

There wont be $70 games, the current pricing model will remain intact, and we'll get more free to play games.

so thanks for reassuring me that the games will remain the same price but what about the price of the system because regardless of the game prices sony had a higher pricepoint then microsoft at the current-gen release are they working to fiz this or is that going to be a constant. on the other side will the price of Durango/720 be set higher than the PS4

Nobody knows the price of the new systems yet. It has not been announced. Same as the game prices. Sony has already said they're working on keeping the PS 4 at a reasonable price point.

 

What reasonable means really is vague. For everything the PS 3 did at launch, $499 was quite reasonable. It was far cheaper than the 360 was at launch. At least once you bought all the additions you needed to make it on par with the PS 3 out of the box like a wireless adapter piece, a hard drive, etc.

they said that it will be affordable or something among those terms, there's rumors of it being around 400-500 dollars but don't quote me on that
