    Jack Tretton Confirms PS 4 Games Priced $60 + Sample Games Before Buying

    Source - http://www.cnbc.com/id/100480852

    On pricing, Tretton said that the PS4 is "designed with the game developer in mind and the consumer in mind," and will offer games with prices ranging from $0.99 to the more traditional $60 range with the ability for players to sample games before they buy.

    "I think people are willing to pay if they see the value there," he said. "The heat for the true gamer is on the console."

    He said that games on mobile devices are "additive experiences" and that gamers won't "migrate down the food chain" for their primary gaming experience.
    Cheers Wonder how the sample process will work ....

    Going to have to figure out how I can set up a USA account and fund it from NZ. Because I can guarantee games for us will be $120 and will be just as much to download, despite there being no physical media cost.

    Well hopefully that also means that the games will remain around £39.99 in the UK. Happy with that if it they do.

    Nice news! I wasn't really all that worried with the change of the system to be a more dev friendly system. Looks like this is going to be a painless transfer to next gen so far.

    I really like what I'm hearing about the PS4. Tretton had a good interview with Forbes too. He basically said it's nice to have streaming services like Netflix etc., but the PS4 is about games. I love to hear that.

    Only thing that sucks is the hardware backwards compatibility issue, but I can understand why that isn't going to be included. Too many hurdles to overcome and would probably drive the price of the PS4 up.

    Yeah the BC news is a bit bumming but like you said. It's the trade off for a better price. That way the price tag is much more appealing than a feature that honestly most will only get use from for about a year max.

    Chances are the system will be region free. Why not just import every game physically (sales and whatnot make them always cheaper than digitally) that way you can re sell it later and also not pay the set price on PSN

    Yep, it's a trade off on price and the future for Playstation by having impressive specs.

    I mean they could have created a more affordable weaker console with backwards compatibility. But then some people would be crying about the console being too weak.

    Or they could have included backwards compatibility with the specs they currently have now and then the price of the PS4 be $600 like the PS3. Then some people would be crying about the console being too expensive again.

    No win situation.

    Yeah... I'm getting less and less worried every day.

A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.”

    Did i understood correctly that all games will have demos? If true, this is HUGE and i can't believe it's not talked about more. The Aliens Colonial Marines is the perfect example of why this is so big.

    PS4 just keeps on getting better and better. Glad it isn't $100 for games.

    yes a $60 price tag is good, but 45.00 pound price tag is even better

    £45? that is a total rip off.. I've never paid more than £40 for a brand new release game on PS3. In fact most of the time I pay around £38

    friend, some games are at that price now... It is only an actual 5 pounds

    If it was above that i would be all up in arms about it.. Look at it this way, it is the companies that might make a loss and were is you make a gain

    That's because the cost of production has gotten higher with each gen, but with PS4 it should be cheaper... or they're just being nice to us.

    Well considering that £45 is about $70, I fail to see the logic here haha.
