Industry analyst Michael Pachter has claimed that software for PlayStation 4 and the new Xbox will retail for around $70 at launch.
Pachter was speaking at the SXSW conference over the weekend, where he also stated his belief that Xbox 720 will triumph over the PS4 in the next-generation console war.
The analyst’s comments were confirmed via journalist Geoff Keighley, who was Tweeting from the event. If $70 is indeed the standard price point, then this will make next-gen games $10 more expensive than the current crop of console titles.
PS4 was announced at the PlayStation Meeting on February 20, with a launch window of holiday 2013 confirmed by Sony. Microsoft however has yet to announce its next-generation Xbox, though it has been reported the system will be unveiled in April.
