    EA to Charge Over 80 Dollars for PS4 Games



    European retailer GAME says that EA will be charging £54.99 for their PS4 games. This is news to a lot of folks as most games on current consoles in the region are £44.99. This appears to be limited to EA at the moment. GAME says:
    At present, the only publisher to confirm costs of their next generation games are EA, attaching a price of £54.99
    This £54.99 price converts to almost $81 US dollars. Hopefully this changes before the PS4 releases later this year. If EA is the only publisher doing this then perhaps it won’t be so bad. Sadly, I think they can get away with this price hike.

    Hopefully this is untrue, I really hope so.

    If not, then I think EA is purposely trying to kill themselves or something. Why on earth would someone want to pay an extra $20 for a game when all other games are cheaper, and might even be better? It's bad enough that they overprice their DLC and were one of the first to start the Online Pass crap.

    This only bothers me because of Need for Speed. Pricing up games for whatever bs reason they have is a damn good way to help me turn away from the series this upcoming generation.

    Most of the pre-order prices in the UK are between £45-£55 for PS4 games so seems EA is going for the top price

    So, I guess this is one of the many hidden reasons why they decided to make those online passed on the PSN for free?

    I really cant see this happening when Sony confirmed all first party titles will be around current prices, at least I hope it doesn't happen! It could only be for launch I suppose?

    As for Game they're a rip off most of the time, most new games in the UK these days are between £35-40 online, only £45 in Game.

    F that I can barely afford 60 bucks for a new game if this is true I will more often than not have to wait for a big price drop to afford any games from EA

    Sounds like placeholder hasn't been changed, and probably by some whiny fan boy who hates EA. When it actually happens, complain. For now, save the rumors and the speculation until there's something more definitive.

    I was just thinking about that same thread. Can't believe people actually think this rumor is true. I guess their eagerness to hate EA is just so far up their asses that they can't face the fact that this would be too idiotic to be done.

    This.

    How often do you actually see game companies doing direct conversions when determining the prices of their games/systems?

    Seriously.

    If we were to follow this (failed) logic...then the PS4, which is £349, would translate to around $520 in the US. Obviously that's not the case.

    The games will likely still be around the $60 USD mark. Don't have a freaking heart attack people.

    Which is exactly why I would think EA would do it.

    Of course I'm not saying that I think this is true, I'm just saying I hope it isn't true, while forgetting about that thread Kiomia linked until I saw it.

    Maybe EA are doing a Microsoft and will turn round in a few weeks and say game will be $60 because we listen to our fans

    When you think about it prices for everything increase, we know it as inflation. However videogames havent had a rise in price, so what this means is that since new games come out with the same release price of 60 dollars or 50 the people involved in the video game bussiness makes less money because their game does not adjust for inflation. This could be an attempt to increase profits and stop losing money due to inflation. I can understand why, but as a consumer i wouldnt want that to happen.
