Looks Like Next-Gen Games Will Still Cost $60

It’s official, the price of your average retail game for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Wii U will continue to carry the now standard price tag of $60. Microsoft has confirmed with GameSpot that, contrary to some rumors, the price of Xbox One games — not including special, limited, or collector’s editions — will not increase. When the PlayStation 4 was revealed last week, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America Jack Tretton mirrored that by confirming the price of PS4 games will range from $.99 to $60.

This is good news. Even though the cost of developing games continue to grow — unnecessarily, I might add — at least consumers won’t have to shell out an extra $10-20 for games that are already somewhat pricey.

    Sounds good to me. 😀

    But no word on downloadable games? It’s super unfair that those are 60€ too . . .

      Do you mean arcade games, or games on demand? Arcade games won’t be the same price as retail titles.

        Download full games on Xbox live or PSN. Instead of buying the Boxed version. On Origin/Steam they’re still 60€/$

          Ah, yeah, unfortunately, I don’t see that changing. I’d even be okay with $50 for downloadable games, since they don’t have packaging.

            That’s what I mean. They just want our money. . .
