Here's a nightmare scenario...

$60 game + sales tax + $30 season pass and/or DLC = $100 games

Here's an ideal stuation, $30 for the single player campaign, $30 for the online multiplyer or $60 for the full game. That's unlikely to happen though. Publishers are unlikely to give consumers a choice like that.

The pricing model, especially on console games and dedicatd handheld games, need to offer greater flexibility on their prices to consumers. Why do sport games see with an annual release cost $60 when those games often share the same assets with few upgrades? I think a lot of consumers are getting sick of being treated like idiots but then again we are the diots because we keep buying them. We also shouldn't really be complaining about the price of games when decades ago they used to cost $50. Prices have gone up substancially to make these games yet the cost to consumers have remained relatively flat. I expect next gen games to cost the same $60 for most games but more attention to download only titles through PSN and XBLA. Watch as prices creep up from the general $15 games to $20 and beyond. That's were they will try and curb used games and piracy, by making games that are pretty big titles but only available for download.

(Pachter made a comment about Wii U game prices, of course they will not be $50. They will be $60 because publishers will not create games like Darksiders 2 on the Wii U for $50 ad then charge $60 on the PS3 and XBOX360. That makes no sense at all)

Back in my day, games cost over $200. AND WE LIKED IT! There was none of this thing you called D L C. We got ourselves a game genie by fighting off bears, barefooted in the snow and made our own D L C.(Pfft)Online play, back then we took two tvs and hooked are systems up using LAN cables. Cross game chat consisted of you yelling down the hallway. Kids these days.

It would truly be a sad day in gaming if there is disk locked content or online passes for a launch game.
