PS Vita games will not have fixed prices

Sony has declared that PlayStation Vita games shall do away with a fixed pricing model, instead using a range of different prices to help combat the rise of cheap smartphone games. That's Sony doing something adaptive and smart. I'm genuinely impressed.

So vita games can be cheaper, equal or more expensive than 3DS games and it all depends on how much work devs put into the game and how much publishers want to charge for them. I like this idea very much.

A scientific observation will show when a game maker is being greedy and when they are being humble.

The marketing and business on the PS Vita should VERY interesting. PS Vita is certainly a device that business people can gamble on being successful but, it is what they make of it.

Make of this what you will. But who pays full RRP anyway.

Sony expands emotion-sensing plans with new patent for games that know & adapt to your feelings

From Xfire: "Imagine a PlayStation that could sense and react to gamer's joy, frustration, or boredom."

-Foxtrot2d ago

Great so my console is going to be depressed and anxious 24/7

Seraphim1d 18h ago

come now Fox, we all know you also have bouts of enjoyment while playing some games. Therefore it's not all depression and anxiety, just 90% that. ;P

@Foxtrot

No, when it knows you are depressed, then it would cheer you up, to keep gamers in a good mental state.

Is Peter Molyneux working for Sony now?

RonnySins1d 16h ago

No, thanks. I want to play games, not to be a lab rat for your experiments.

Seraphim1d 14h ago (Edited 1d 14h ago )

technically this could be used to enhance games. Struggling with something and just broke your controller. We see you, dial down the difficulty to noob so you can finally have that dopamine rush of excitement which comes from finally beating that boss...

I mean, I agree, no thanks, but patents like these tend to be rather premature and something that wouldn't come to fruition for a few+ more decades. Proof of concept and trademark so others can't capitalize on the idea... Even then, it did come to fruition it still requires the player to have a camera in their room or a headset on. Long as they don't force something like this similar to what XB did with Kinect then to each their own I suppose. It's a hard pass for me though, and if they tried to force something like this on a PS console, see ya later PS.

congratulations sony well done

Cacabunga21d ago

We need first party exclusives to keep gamers excited and those sales up..
Announce a new Killzone or start with a remake of the second one. Sony has its flagship FPS but doesn’t believe enough in it!!
Show us that gaas format is not a big part of the way forward.

DefenderOfDoom220d ago

Since the launch of PS4 Killzone Shadow Fall has been the only Sony 1st party FPS campaign released. Would love a new Killzone or Resistance.

Eonjay21d ago

Very solid quarter and this doesn't even include Spiderman 2.

stonecold321d ago

spiderman sold 5 million now been updated

Eonjay21d ago

shadowT21d ago

Hofstaderman21d ago

Nobody stopping this train. Well done and well deserved.

JusttJD009921d ago

Wait... that can't be...

Sony was done for and everyone would switch to X-Box because of Starfield & activision/Blizzard!!!
How... how can that be?!?!

Ah, right... we like quality games and that's why we stick with Playstation.
