PS4 Game Prices

12 replies 562 views Edited May 11, 2013

Went to Amazon.com yesterday to take a look at some PS4 titles and am shocked that some of these games, Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed IV and Thief 4 are all $100 a piece. Is this a temporary price tag or is it going to be the new standard?

It's a place holder.

No, on IGN I read a couple month's ago that the PS4 game prices will be the same as they are now. Basically, $59.99 a game. So no, it won't be 100 bucks a game.

I remember back in the day I bought a N64 title for 120 Gulden, which is €60,- and that's exactly what games cost these days. Of course we're talking $ here, but just saying, prices will stay relatively the same. You can count on that.

Yeah those are place holders. Since Amazon has that pre-order price gaurentee it is safe bet for them to set it at $100, since if they put it at $60 but it turns out it's actually $70 or something they'd have to honor that.

It's called inflation. $49.99 for PS2 games in 2001/2002 would cost about $63 now.

Which is the price we are paying for PS3 games.

 

And as promised from Sony, the same top-dollar we will be paying for PS4 games.

If anything prices will drop. Games on Tablets and smart phones are just to cheap and the only way to compete is to lower AAA games prices this gen or at the very lest keep them at 60.

I feel like many of the ps4 games will be cross buys with the vita, to get people like me to buy the games, and we will be seeing more 40$ games like sly 4 along with more deals.

The prices won't drop for top titles.

$60 dollars will be the price for a top-tier premier title. (i.e. The Last of Us, Grand Theft Auto V, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, etc.)

$40-50 for lower-tier titles / Touched up re-releases / lesser known titles (i.e. Sly 4, Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut, Resident Evil: Revelations, etc.)

 

It's always worked that way, as far as I can remember. Atari, NES, Genesis, etc.

Even PS1 had games that ranged from 29.99 to 49.99. It just depends on the game.
