Third party games would apparently be released for the standard price for nex-gen consoles i.e. $59.99.
No word yet on the pricing of first-party titles.
how people will comment on rumors of what the prices will be,but when real prices show up,they scatter.do i believe some games will be more than 59.99?yes.but i see zero comments and i somehow become the first to post on this?amazing!now maybe people will concentrate on what matters:THE GAMES
Activision has said the same price between PS3 and xbox360 games as well.
Another shatterred dream for the close-minded one console gamer.
In a interview with ken, he said that its their target, but prices could be a little higher. $39 as being low grade and $59 as high grade but nothing near $100.(nothing that would warrant a doubling in price)
I don't believe that games will be higher than normal. As production goes on they will reduce costs, just like any new technology, and the prices will drop. $60 should be the target for the games, but I wouldn't be surprised at a slightly larger amount.
BluRay discs cost a LOT compared to nearly-free DVDs. And that's a single-layer BD compared to a dual-layer DVD. When Sony gets into dual-layerBD, the price difference is nearly staggering. (see elsewhere: One single-layer BD-ROM may cost as much as a spindle of 360-style DVDs)
That kind of production cost just can't be forgotten- someone's taking a hit for it.
Production costs decrease as production increases. The main reason BD discs cost more is because there are so many DVDs printed every day and so few BDs. Plus, the machinery needed to produce BDs isn't already in place like with DVDs. But as millions of games get printed to BDs, costs will drop dramatically. That's how it was with DVDs back when they were new.
i thought it was going to be a little higher but im glad i was wrong.
heard it was 80.00-60.00 ummm....dollars.
Are third party developers like LUCAS ARTS or is it wrong or can someone give me an example??
anything not exclusive to ps3 or funded by sony are third-party titles. Yes, that includes Lucas Arts unless one of their projects got funded by sony/ms, which is really the only way they'd make a console exclusive
GREAT THAT MEANS 80 EUROS here !!!!!!!
its pretty weird when ps3 gets good news you dont see any of the 360 fanboys bashing us....sigh......
i don't see that 1st party titles would be more than 3rd party, so i assume $59.99 or under for those as well. guess we'll have to wait and see.
if you're reading this. this whole cool/lame has to go. it serves absolutely no purpose other than to have people vote strickly based on the platform something is posted for. sony diehards vote lame on 360 articles. ms diehards vote lame on ps3 articles. 9 out of 10 times the person who votes lame doesn't even post a comment to explain their position. they just vote lame because it's about the console they don't like. i mean look at the title of this article. what valid reason would you have to vote lame for this unless you truly think that even $59.99 is too high? do you vote lame because you were wrong and thought they would be higher? makes no sense.
i agree with you 100%
Until the PS3 has something on it that I like more than on the Xbox 360 worth paying an extra 200 for the console you can forget about it. Blu ray isnt even on my mind I dont have a a 2000 dollar TV to support it. My TV now supports HD and its beautiful as it is. loseing there some of there best exclusive titles was also a big turn off. MGS4 is a cool looking game but I'm not getting a 600$ console for it. I'm not into Sonys kind of line up of games.
But 59$ sounds alot better than 100$ but we havent heard the prices from othere parties but I doubt it will be $100. If so thats even more pathetic.
59.99 dollops is a good price for me, or the the US rather! i think this will equate to around 44 or 49 pounds, but of course shop around on the net like Play or sometimes Amazon uk, and can usually pick things up cheaper, with free delivery from Play also of course which is always a consideration.
