Pricing in the Next Gen

$59.99. That is the standard price for nearly every single game to hit retail and digital download in today’s gaming market. That is the standard for the triple-A titles and…the not so much. It’s the universal standard for great games, good games, and bad games... but is that standard justified? (Dynasty Warriors 8, Gaikai, Next-Gen, PS3, PS4, Sony, The Last Of Us)

well, it's a case of paying less for more with PS4 and paying more for less on xbone. Well, less plus a spy camera in your living room.

Everyone who says spy cam I feel are stupid.

You use a phone by either Google Apple or MS you are already profiled.

You use a computer laptop or tablet by them you are being profiled.

Google search? They know your habits.

I just find the spy camera to be the worse argument because if you are truly concerned about your privacy I would suggest throwing away most of your electronics.

JBSleek, that's a very narrow minded view. Your cell phone camera wasn't made WITH the NSA and FBI. The Kinect was.

not seen a single game yet worth the $6800 (plus taxes) a ps4 or xbox1 would cost me

ps4=$400
psn/8 years=$400
100 games in 8 years=$6000 (that's only buying a game a month)

f all that, STEAM SALE!

Do you buy a new game EVERY month religiously though?

I certainly do not. And you're also not factoring that PSPlus (PSN) provides free games very frequently (for PSVita and the PS3) so the $400 cost becomes insignificant as you download FREE games that would have cost you $40-60 each.

It soon will be justified. When triple A games don't sell enough copies, much more developers will be closing their doors. It will get to a point that multi platform games will go back to being the normal. The Wii U will get 3rd party love and will also be the standard to justify the $60 dollar price tag.
