Opinion: What Does “$60″ Mean Anymore?

Quote:

"Games come out in all different shapes and sizes nowadays, from bite-sized iOS games, to handfuls of downloadable games, and to armfuls of retail games. But does it always really fall into place that easily? Is it really on a scale of cheap to expensive, big to small, iOS to retail? In reality, black and white have all but faded away in today’s game structure. Retail games can be shorter than iOS games and those once-small downloadables are only a box away from retail games in size and scope." (PS4)

4-5 really good used games from Gamestop.

used games help. I've become a fan of certain series years later well after it was popular simply because of finding the game used for a cheap price and checking it out.

I'd say only 30-40% of new games are actually worth the $60 price tag.
PygmelionHunter  +   496d ago | Well said
5-7 hours campaigns
bugfests
on-disk dlc
better version on the way at retail price
online passes

Just to name a few things that come to my head...

EDIT: Awesome thumbnail pic BTW.

Microtransactions for phone and facebook games add up to be more than a GOTY Edition of a big AAA release with all the DLC and that is terrible.

With PS Plus, you just can't lose.

... what do you do with the extra $10?

Or a year of Xbox live as well.

Not that I would recommend it because I'm a firm supporter of free online multiplayer.

@disagrees

Can't accept the truth? Deal with it.

$60 dollars means I didn't pre-order and will be waiting a month or two before I buy at a reduced price.

Games like Dark Souls 2,MGS5, and The Last of Us.

That's what $60(+tax) Means to me.

$60 will buy you an incomplete game. Buy the rest via DLC
