Probably Not

Gahaha, it doesnt matter. Ill need to go out and buy those games anyways, since all my PS3 games wont be working on the PS4.

3 Jobs should easily do the trick, parents pension funds are an option too.

Everything that's wrong in the gaming industry is summed up right here.

Didnt you know..

Console gamers.. Don't care about BC.

Most of them will happily sell of their current games at throw away prices to pay for the new games at the new price. In the end they will end up buying HD remakes for what they currently own or they will end up paying for Streaming services.

The ones that choose to keep their old boxes will eventually get tired of having to re buy old boxes once they fail and will eventually join the rest of the herd.

If you care....
that much about BC then just keep your ps3. Guess what? You won't even require an internet connection to play them.

$70 but they're charging us ridiculous prices for DLC maps, levels, campaign stories, etc. that should all ready be in the disk.

Gotta love Far Cry 3's content... it's a step up from the crap they pulled in Ass Creed 2 with that lady on the boat segment DNA.

i hope not
but if it does is goodbye gaming for me
sdozzo  +   907d ago
Liar. If ten bucks a game turns you away you shouldn't be blowing money on gaming to begin with. Rat.
princejb134  +   907d ago
@sdozzo

dude really
ps2 days i used to pay $50 a game and as a poor high school student in those days $50 was a lot
now I'm a poor college student paying $60
imagine paying $70 as a poor student
no way dude it all adds up

our food, rent and daily expense are already going up. why would gaming go up also if its only for entertainment

$70 isn't that bad, some 3rd party games cost $120 in Australia.

$70 would be awesome in comparison.
Blackhawk3  +   907d ago
$70? Not that I can't afford it, but I don't want to afford it. I'll be waiting on price drops for most titles then. Best of luck to them if they think sales will improve.

Only my must play titles will I be buying brand new out of the gate.
Derekvinyard13  +   907d ago
$70 ? Doubt it
ApolloTheBoss  +   907d ago
Certainly Not. Jack Trenton already said PS4 games would be $60 or less. Why are people still posting this crap?
ShaunCameron  +   906d ago
That's just him. He doesn't speak for the 3rd-party publishers who might charge $70 for the games they decide to put on the PS4.
Merrill  +   907d ago
So all used games will potentially be blocked and we have to pay more for new games, more DLC and micro-transactions...

Jesus, they really hate gamer's and want every cent from you. The industry really needs to crash and be born again.
OlgerO  +   907d ago
Good god pachter at it again, I want to punch this guy
DeadlyFire  +   905d ago
Sony president already stated PS4 games will range from .99 up to $60.

Sure publishers could try $70 if they want to do so, but I won't buy their game for a year until it hits a sweet price point.
The_Infected  +   907d ago
I remember when N64 games were $70! Then they eventually all was set at $59 which was much better. I don't mind paying $70 if the games are very good but that's it no more or I want pay. At $70 though if we buy a mediocre game we have the more right to be pissed at ourselves for buyin a POS game! Lol
DonJogHurt  +   907d ago
They better not!
JBSleek  +   907d ago
Some likely will others will not.
Megaton  +   907d ago
Jack Tretton already said $60.
majiebeast  +   907d ago
I doubt it.
tweet75  +   907d ago
$70 + $30+ in microtransactions the standard game will cost $100 to get everything. nah this would only hurt the game industry

Doubt it. Funny people forget paying $80 for FFIII or Chrono Trigger though...
givemeshelter  +   907d ago
They better not. That's suicide...
If so...I will stick to PC gaming
smashcrashbash  +   907d ago
Sony already said there games will be $60.00 and under.Why are people still trying to say otherwise?
ichimaru  +   907d ago
aren't these games supposedly cheaper to make since the tech improvement
OmniSlashPT  +   907d ago
"said Wedbush Securities Research Analyst Michael Pachter."

yeah k
Magnus  +   907d ago
I was hoping with Blu-ray being adopted next gen that the price goes downon new games. Best thing I might do is not buy a title on day one but wait for a bit and the game might either go on sale or they might drop the price. I bought Epic Mickey 2 for my PS3 for $60 then found out two months later they dropped the price by $20 making it a $40 dollar title. They also did the samething with the Family Guy game I bought it for $60 and turns out they dropped the price by $20 making it a $40 dollars title as well.
fsfsxii  +   907d ago
SXSW sounds like EA
cheetorb  +   907d ago
$70 day one maybe, then less and less as time goes by. No biggie, just don't buy day one and maybe they'll figure out $70 isn't gonna fly.
ScubaSteve1  +   906d ago
70 dollars for un-finished, un-polished games with dlc no thanks
headblackman  +   906d ago
out of all of the dumb rumors, this is the only dumb one I can believe. man I hate greed. this is the biggest reason why people feel the need to pirate games.

Go ahead and charge that price jack offs, see if people don't just wait until the price is reduced to 39.99.
CaulkSlap  +   906d ago
You're a fool to pay $60 unless you must have it day 1 these days.
Max-Zorin  +   906d ago
i hope not.
