$10 the Optimum Price for Indie Games?

At Develop this afternoon, a collection of crack indie devs had a chat about how to make money as a micro-studio. (Android, Hello Games, iPad, iPhone, Joe Danger, Mobile, PC, Plain Sight, PS3, Steam Valve, Tag Invalid, Valve Software, Xbox 360)

Yeah, that's usually a good price for a good game. I paid like $20 for Trine on PSN, though.

$10 I find to be the right price for games that are short, and simple. I loved the demo for Trine, but I waited until it was on sale for $10. When Joe Danger hits that price too, I will most likely pick that up too. Until then I will just wait it out for the right price.

With a demo you just don't know what you are getting, since PSN+ has the option of getting full game demos, I think companies need to start doing full game demos (ex. Infamous), so you can see what you are getting, and if you determine if it's worth the price of $10 or more.

I can see full game demos for $60 games, or even some $20+ games that have a lot of content to it. But for 15 and under, just a regular demo will do (I hope more developers release demos for like $10/$15 games. Some seem worth it but you never know till you've tried it). Seeing as you can beat many downloadable games within that time frame of a full game demo (1 hour). DeathSpanks' demo was good, it was like 25 or so minutes of game play, and you could do a bunch of quests and such during that time.

I think...
Anywhere from five to ten dollars would fit my bill. I don't mind paying more than that though if it has a lot of content, is enjoyable and has a fairly good replay value. It's all up to the game really.

$9.99 should have been the price for PSN Download but I will wait for $7.99
I bought Trine on sale for $9.99

I think Trine is one of the most polished PSN games available, and is well worth $10 when you consider the offline coop capabilities.
