GameInformer writes: We've all gotten used to games costing $60 these days, but is there any going back? EA Canada senior producer Jason DeLong ruminates on video game pricing in 2010.
We talked to DeLong about what he thinks might happen to the video game industry in 2010 and beyond, and he told us that he thinks reduced software pricing is in the cards. "I think that we're going to start to see – maybe not in the next year, but in the near future – games go down the route of smaller up-front experiences and lower prices at the beginning," he told us, "and then the ability to extend the game through episodic material or future feature material. I think that's a direction we're probably heading in."
