Why Games Will Only Get Cheaper

The Escapist: "Although I would totally pay $75 for Sonic 2 even today, our generation is spoiled. We are getting way better games for way less money. Despite what some say, our favorite hobby is cheaper now than it's ever been in history."

"no because of global warming that hurt our industries so prices will raise "

Oh yeah... Global Warming. Keep Drinking that United Nations Propaganda. They know that the one causing the "Global Warming" is the sun but hey they also know that the majority of the people on earth are ignorant and they are taking advantage of that.

"The sun is waking up from a deep slumber, and in the next few years we expect to see much higher levels of solar activity," Richard Fisher, head of NASA's Heliophysics Division. that was in 2010.

Over here in Australia the price of both next-gen games has actually risen as posted by most retail shops.

Might have to order some games from overseas because even adding for the item's cost and shipping, it's still a lot cheaper especially if you buy by bulk.

Let me retort that with one of Escapist's own videos:
http://www.escapistmagazine...

No one is "spoiled" because prices are down from the outrageous prices of old games. Blaming bloated development costs on gamers "demanding more" when one of this generation's most popular games is Minecraft is completely idiotic.

The writing is on the wall, but publishers, apologists, and "old man" gamers are too busy smashing their heads against it to read it.

i have no problem paying $60 for a game as long its spectacular with a lot of replay value.

StockpileTom1571d ago (Edited 1571d ago )

I'm not demanding shit. If they would take just half of those huge budgets for graphics and use it for more content and attention to detail we would be playing better games that don't cost nearly as much. Publishers would stop being so damn risk adverse and start innovating again.

Something along the graphical level of Dark Souls with a budget half as high as they use for something like BF4 would be packed full of content.

Hell, I would pay MORE for a game like that.
