2010 Could Mark the Return of the $50 Videogame

EEDAR analyst Jesse Divnich is expecting the median price of videogames to drop back to a $49.99 price point as early as next year, noting, however, higher rated or "premium" titles (80 and above) will likely remain unchanged for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Divnich believes the new motion control devices from Sony and Microsoft, both expected for release next year, will cause publishers to release a catalog of lower budget, lower priced titles attractive to the casual audience, as well as a decrease in overall development costs.
