DeltaGamer discusses whether it is possible to put a price on video games, and how arguments like "price = hours of gameplay" aren't that good.
All I know is almost 3 times the price of a new bluray movie is too much. Hope they don't charge based on hours of gameplay, Id have to remortgage for Skyrim :)
In these times...HELL YEAH WE CAN!
i think it would be good idea be charge games on reviews and how long the game is.
not really, do u go on time spent making the game or time you spend on the game i.e do you play it all year (fifa, cod etc) or spend 300 hours on your rpg's (elder scrools, the witcher) or do you play the game for few hours complete it once? in that case fifa would be more expensive than god of war. or money spent making the game. its tough but £40 for every title is insane if ya play as many games as me thats why i buy second hand and why im pissed at online passes and pre order goodies
I think $65 for a new game is absurd.... 40 then 50 now 60...whats next? $75 next gen for a new game? I'll just be playing this gen only if that is the case.
Single Player ONLY games should be 2/3rds of the current price, that way if people want to pay for the MP, they can pay extra, coming to the full original price.
