    What price do you think PS4 games will be ?

    It is safe to say they will be expensive but if you look at PSN and see games selling for 49.99 or the equivalent and some higher , how much do you think they will try for this time round ? The same ? More ? Less (yeah right)

    I think they will be about 60 to start off with and probably double to 150 mark for the packages



    With the games supposed to be system locked this could price a lot of people out the market and I for one would not take any risks on games I was not sure about , so would imagine the Developers would suffer to with poor sales

    ya im guessing either 69.99 or 74.99. either way fml.

    however, expect alot more stuff to be digital download, which will make it cheaper. (i would hope)

    still, with that being said, fuck digital download

    When the PS3 first released all retail games were 49.99 new but nowadays new games are very rarely that expensive and more like 39.99. I would imagine the same thing will happen for PS4. Maybe a bit higher with it being better technology like 59.99 new then goes down to 49.99 new

    I think it will stay the same, around 60$, possibly 70$.

    It depends on what format they release it on. If it stays on Blu-Ray then that will keep the price down (because they are already in development) if they use some new form of disc then the price will go up (or they will operate at a loss). Also it really depends on what Nintendo and MS sell their stuff at. No company is going to charge 10$ more for a game so if MS sells their games at 49 then Sony will sell their games at 49.

    Because right now PS3 and Xbox360 games are at a point where they are still testing out Digital distribution. Look at The vita which and you will see most games are slightly cheaper in digital than physical (Normally 5). Obviously it isn't the case every time (For example The new super monkey ball is 30 on the store but some retailers have put it at half price on release so you can get it for 15)

    But for PS4 generation. I would guess a recommended retail price of 60 but most games will end up being sold for 45 on release with the PSN price being about 5 less than the average price retailers offer for the game. I don't care about the digital price though, I buy portable games in digital and home games in physical

    About 60. Double what they were for PS1 games. Does that mean life is twice as expensive nowadays?

    I doubt they would stay at $60 other than when it launches, after that they will probably rise to $69.99 or even $79.99. Look at the PS3, they launched at what, $50 or so.

    A price increase always comes with a new generation of console so I'm expecting another 5-10 , $ or Euros added to the price.

    They will probably increase the price to 70 I highly doubt they will keep them at 60. Even the Vita got a price upgrade on games. By the time the Ps5 comes out I would be living in a box.

    Ps1-- 39.99
    Ps2-- 49.99
    Ps3-- 59.99
    Ps4-- 69.99 (just a guess lol)

    I'm assuming it would stay around $60-$80. Any more than that and I think people will start reading more books lol. Besides i don't think the ps4 will be out yet for awhile and tech always gets cheaper to make with time. Besides if I recall correctly ps1 sold for $299 and back then 299 was worth more than nowadays. Ah inflation, you crafty swine.

    In my experiance digital downloads are more expensive on everything on all vita titles if you buy out shops new they are cheaper than off PSN and same goes for PS3 titles but the margins are a lot bigger . I might be alone but I would hate the idea of games being system locked and digital download only , it would push all the prices up across the board

    If the price for a Ps4 game does touch 60-70 quid, It's just another incentive for me to not buy a Ps4 immediately. But the main reason is because I still have/want to play so many games on my Ps3 and that will still be the same no doubt when the Ps4 comes out. On the subject of digital downloads, it still amazes me the cost of some the games on there, it's absolutely scandolous and if it passes over to Ps4 i can't begin to imagine what prices would be like then but either way I'd never buy a game that was 50 quid on PSN where as you could shop around a little and find it way cheaper.

    I think it will be the same or a little higher to begin with and as they sell more PS4 consoles then the prices will re-adjust lower
