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.
