Looks like PS3 games will be the same price as 360 games.

So in Europe Xbox 360 games cost about $20 USD less than ps3 games, and wii games actually cost about $5 more than Xbox 360 games???

This is not including Microsoft's first party games right?

kingboy5959d ago

it`s a brand new system anyway so prices are gonna be high a little as from november my credit card is gonna be on fire

FamoAmo5959d ago

King- Some of the 360 games have went down in price. PDZ- 39.99 and a few others. Also some sports titles are only 40$. I don't think 60$ is a bad price for a game anyway. HD gameing -you just can't beat it!!

Games that are droping in prices are the one that arn't selling... DUHhhhhhh no brainer...

if rumours are true and the ps3 is region free for games,then we'll just import the games from the cheapest place in the world,apparently bd could potentially hold all the different languages so high prices may not even be an issue

Lionel Hutz5957d ago

Exactly right on the region free part. The only thing I worry about (well nothing as I live in the US) for UK gamers then is that the cost of shipping and tax for importing games will not offset the savings from buying in the US.

Also, I think that the prices will drop once blu-ray has been established more, and the manufacturing costs for making blu-ray discs decline.

Thirdly, nothing has been said about digital distribution of the games - skipping retail stores may be bad for business, but may lower the price for us gamers.

Capt CHAOS5957d ago

You really think most/all games will come on BD? What's the point. Game publishers will be aiming to ship on DVD format to keep costs low for us consumer (I hope). Language content does not take much space for games, and I'm sure many regions would fit on even a DVD..

All game will ship in the blu-ray format for copy protection reasons
As for next gen games droping in price Amped3 is a good example in the uk it stated at £45 now you can pick it up new for £17.99 this will happen across all format's but it will take much longer for PS3 game prices to drop
