EA CEO: Current Pricing Model Will Soon Be Obsolete

Kotaku reports:

"EA's CEO John Riccitiello doesn't think that all of us suckers will pay $59 for video games forever. Just wait until someone does the math on all the money they've spent on Madden over the past 15 years. And his wife divorces him."

the price just jumped up and no one resisted it....even though the quality of the so-called next gen didn't really go up that much; crap games still get made....all the time.

At least with M$ you can always burn your own games. Oh wait, I didn't just say that. Sucks to your pricing, M$. I own you.

Thats because we live in a time/world where people would rather argue and complain about things rather than take action.

PS3 games cost just as much as new PS2 games did here in Sweden, no price raise here..
Though this is about 102 dollars according to google :S

when i went to malaysia, i found that games there cost just a fraction of $59...

plus...

in the end, China will win!

EA should set the trend for pricing at $50 a pop then.

"Just wait until someone does the math on all the money they've spent on Madden over the past 15 years. And his wife divorces him."

especially considering Madden is basically the same game every year

I can't wait until the PS3 and 360 games are 50 bucks...I could've put a down payment on a house if I had the extra $10 bucks I spent on each new game I bought this year

Is that the American housing market?

Marceles, do you live in a cardbox house? If so, that's a really expensive downpayment.
