Ubisoft leaks the price of PS4 game

Chazz from PSNation has done some digging and hidden in a webpage for a UPlay exclusive edition for the new Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag. Which will be coming out on all current and next gen platforms but he just found out the price for the game.

Looks like one third party publisher isn't changing their price. (PS4, Ubisoft)

Woo hoo no price increase for PS4 games!

Didn't Sony already confirm that games were going to be $60?
NastyLeftHook0  +   540d ago
yes in fact they did.
MostJadedGamer  +   540d ago
Thats the MAX they will be. Like this Generation there will be many games that retail for $40 or $50.
teedogg80  +   540d ago
We've known this for over a month now. The games will range from .99 to $60.
ThanatosDMC  +   540d ago
Activision will sell their games for $59.99 then charge for dlc for $15 or season passes for $30 as per usual.
PeaSFor  +   540d ago

Jack Tretton: "the PS4 is designed with the game developer in mind and the consumer in mind, and will offer games with prices ranging from $0.99 to the more traditional $60 range with the ability for players to sample games before they buy.
I think people are willing to pay if they see the value there,"

stupid analysts escalated the rumor stated that it was going to be $70

yeah they did, don't know why some people are still lingering over the subject.

Well, you can't spell 'analysts' without 'anal', which seems to be the region on their bodies in which they produce their "analyses."

People still commenting saying nothing is confirmed...read what people are telling you when we're saying that Sony already confirmed PS4 game prices weeks ago.
DeadlyFire  +   540d ago
Fact is games sell slower at $60 price point than $50. So noone really chances more than that just yet its to early to think about trying it.

People that buy Season pass DLC as soon as they buy the game are the ones promoting them selling games at $100+ bucks. Solution is simple if they do push higher prices. Don't buy DLC.

60 bucks or not, we all know there's gana be tons of DLC.
And even more so, with the new/much faster online store.
Aside from that, I'm glad there not over 60.
ChazzH69  +   539d ago
Sony said their games would be priced up to £60 but third party publishers were still unknown in their pricing.
Starfox-17  +   539d ago
Well wiiu games like Beyonetta2/Watchdogs and X are £50 on GAME UK website so it was obvious the ps4 would be the same.
Omni-Tool  +   539d ago
This is a price for the Black chest edition. Not the game its self.
ziggurcat  +   540d ago
sony confirmed that games would still be $60 shortly after the PS4 announcement.

so, i'm not surprised.
Blastoise  +   540d ago
Until EA appears. £60 please! £70 if you buy digital & don't forget those micro-transactions!

Seriously though I'm glad there's no price increase, games are expensive enough as it is.
_FantasmA_  +   540d ago

Wrong! It wasn't analysts that said $70, it was Michael Pacther. If you don't know who he is he is a guy who is always wrong and is as much a gamer as Lil Wayne is a good rapper (he's not).
Crazyglues  +   540d ago
well if that's true then Assassin Creed IV is indeed getting picked up by me on PS4.....

-was going to pass after I saw the gameplay trailer - http://bit.ly/103t5ZL - because it look like AC3 on PS3 but if it's the same price then ok I'll get it..

-Because that's awesome that they kept the price the same for next gen... + the PS3 and PS4 get 60mins of additional content for free.

So that's pretty cool

Why did you expect to pay more? You're just going to be spending £400 on a machine that might not even offer 1080 AGAIN.

EDIT: Sony are charging £40 for PSVita games so who knows.

All 3 nextgen consoles will have the same graphics,but ps4 and 720 are charging u for a hard drive and bluray player as well as the console,i personally prefer to just add anything up to a 3TB hard drive of any make to my console u can shop around and get a fair price unlike ps4 ect as we dont know if 720 will do the same again ? ur over paying for a 256GB hard drive that simply isnt enough with games around 24GB ? that's about 10 games not good enough a cheaper console without it is the way to go.
omi25p  +   540d ago
Earlier on when i preordered The Black Chest Edition these were the console choices.

Xbox 360
Wii U
PC Download

Dont know if its still there.
Chucky2003  +   540d ago
well yeah,but then it comes the microtransactions,then the season pass,some paid skins ,weapons that should had been in the game from the start,even shorter games,dlc,then after all of these you realize that you paid a lot more for the game,You will come and say that you're not forced to pay for them,but then again you know you will,because it will feel that something is missing from the game,or you really want that skin or weapon,the price maybe won;t change,but everything else in the games will
Wagz22  +   540d ago
So all the disagrees for galactic means that you wanted to pay a higher price for ps4 games?
NobleTeam360  +   540d ago
The funny thing is that Amazon is using a 99 placeholder even though we have plenty of confirmed evidence that points to games costing 60.

it would be verybad if they increase the prices of games. £40/$60 is about as high as it should go.
Reverent  +   540d ago
Even $60 is asking for too much (depending on the game, of course). Really glad to know for sure that the prices won't be rising at all.
sourav93  +   540d ago
Only the source code says the price for the PS4 version. This could be because they're not officially allowed to reveal the price for the PS4 version of the game, perhaps. Nonetheless, this is great news as it shows there won't be a price hike for next gen video games.

With the way things are going, it'll be $60 for half the game.. another $30 to $40 to download the other half.

80 bucks for my copy of Chrono Trigger for SNES. It could be worse. 72 bucks for Super Mario Bros. 3.

-_- I'm not impressed by 60 bucks for big budget production-games.
Thirty3Three  +   540d ago
Uh... We've known this...

They've confirmed 60 dollar games literally weeks and weeks back. Like, in February... Catch up.
Dlacy13g  +   540d ago
Good news indeed! Lets hope with the switch to more traditional PC architecture developers are going to see a reduction in their costs that will equate to keeping retail costs the same.
StrongMan  +   540d ago
Thank God.
SpecialK  +   540d ago
I kind of expected that anyway.

£40 - £45 seems to be the limit that people are willing to pay for games, and rightly so. Its expensive.

This is why I dont mind DLC as long as theres enough content in the original game (which there almost always has been for games I've purchased).

Let people buy DLC and micro DLC if they want it, so that the prices stay where they are.

Im happy now i was a bit skeptical at first but if sony have said the systems easier to develop for then there really is no excuses.

So far its all looking good what sony are offering the maturer gaming crowd.
deanobi  +   540d ago
The thing with website coding is that alot is copied and pasted, so I'm not believing that price is the actual price till a PS4 logo on the site is visible along with the price to the customer. (Just my 2 cents) Nothing is confirmed yet.

Never Pay Full Price
$60 $70 $120 MEH, I always wait for the price drop or GOTY editions otherwise

aLiEnViSiToR  +   540d ago
Anything over $50 (40 Euro and 35 British Pound i think) for a Video-game is a ripoff... mark my words, pricing of Video-games will always go up.
The_KELRaTH  +   539d ago
So far all my new PS3 games have been under £30.00
Not sure why ppl think they should suddenly pay more just because the game has a PS4 label. While the games will/should be always better than the PS3 could offer it won't be anything new to PC gamers and they pay less not more for the better quality!

Meh, whatever, it's just another boring AssCreed game. They should have stopped at AssCreed 3, which even then that game sucked. IMO.

I checked some online stores here in Finland, and they're 70 € a piece! The worst had 79.99 €! Hope those prices aren't final.
Tzunoy  +   539d ago
If they are satisfied with 60$ on next gen that means the profit is there. Imagine the profit of the current and past generations when everything was more cheaper to make than these days :)

why do I have a feeling the Sony keeping their games @ $59.99 pissed off MS because they probably wanted to go $69.99 for next gen.

Just a gut feeling and a opinion based on MS's past business practices.
Starfox-17  +   539d ago
ps4 256GB HDD isnt enough ?

wiiu on the other hand is much better u can add anything up to 3TB of any make or model,ive seen 1TB HDD for £70 ? ps4 shouldn't of included a HDD that u will need to upgrade after 10 games ?

All 3 consoles will have the exact same graphics unless the devs are fanboys.

I was paying more for games back in the day(Atari,Intellivision,Coleco vison)then they charge now.The only thing that bothers me a bit is the fact I play mostly single player,but have to pay full price.If gaming goes the way of banning used games I hope one does not have to pay full price if they don't play mulitplayer.
chaos_mechanica  +   539d ago
Does no one notice that it's probably for a special edition?! IT HAS A TON OF STUFF IN THE PICTURE
PooEgg  +   539d ago
We might only pay $60 for the vanilla game, but how much will we be paying for DLC next gen? I can't seem to shake the feeling that DLC and microtransactions are the area where we are going to feel the pain, but really hope that I am wrong.
