PS4, Xbox 720 game prices in US, UK may increase

We have some more details on the much discussed next-gen PS4 and Xbox game price point to share with you now. Recently, we told you about rumors suggesting that prices could be raised to £70 per PS4 game in the UK. Now we have a new rumor to give you, coming from that man Michael Pachter again who has given another of his claims on how much games on the new consoles will cost in the US. (PS4, Xbox One)

If the game is scattered across 5 Plats (XB 360&720, PS3&4, and WiiU) I am sure it will stay 60. Just because they will spread the cost of development across Plats.

But I think that games made, from the ground-up for the Next HD Systems will be more expensive- Just in the Beginning.

Ubisoft and many other devs have already discussed how expensive the re-tool for Newer systems will be.

i certainly hope not but then again this would just make me wait one at a time till i get the most out of one game then eventually the other games i want would go cheap

im sure that doesnt exactly help publishers or developers for that matter

i agree. they would be wise to price games reasonably otherwise alot gamers will just wait for the prices to drop. this will not be good for both gamers and sales.

This will be industry SUICIDE.

The console SECRECY is about hiding built in DRM + DLC + monthly fee's + micro-transactions until Launch; if that's the case, I'll keep PS3 or stop gaming.

WiiU games like Beyonetta2 or Watchdogs are 10 pounds more in UK i'm sure this is all it means ?? this sites always twisting something to make 720 and ps4 look like premium consoles and never include wiiu ? look wiiu games that are NEXTGEN ect are £50 more than the £40 that a AAA game sold for on say the 360.

Games will not be £70 in uk no one would buy them and its just sony and microsoft looking for an excuse to make their games at much higher budgets over wiiu but ultimately WiiU with same budget would achieve same results so it will be better to set the price at £50 but allow games to sell at more if its a massive project ect but this will only work on all 3 platforms it's just so publishers can have 600 people teams to make games ect or there wont be a massive jump in graphics.
