    Price of PS4 games?

    http://www.amazon.com/Watch-Dogs-pla...dp/B00BI83EVU/
    http://www.amazon.com/Assassins-Cree...dp/B00BMFIXOW/

    I really hope these are just placeholder prices. This is WAY too much money. This is basically Japanese prices, and for context, a new bluray movie in Japan often costs around 5000 yen. They're used to paying through the nose for things, but this would NOT sell in the US...

    They are placeholders and believe it has been stated before that they are. Since Amazon and many other retailers have a price guarantee on preorders they don't take a chance with new games being released for a new console without any pricing confirmation.

    This happen every time a games a new system is announced and retailers put the games up for preorder before any prices are confirmed. There is little chance the MSRP will be more than $70 with a decent chance it remains the same as current gen games($60); excluding special editions, bundles, etc.

    What a dumb placeholder price. They should put it up for $69.99 since that's what people are expecting it to be.

    Yep placeholder. I'm saying they will stay the same. Slippery slope going up anymore. Especially with down economy and people already being very selective with their game choices now.

    I read about how publishers will save money on next gen development because of not having to port to different hardware architectures so theres no excuse to not keep it at $60.

    Yeah but your talking about imports...i grabbed street fighter 2 turbo for the snes on import for £75-00 - £80.00...this gen i have only paid 39.99 or less for all disc games. I have seen a few for £40 +.

    I think ps4 games will be priced at around £40 - 45.

    This is what I've been saying for the longest time. Powerful hardware and flexible game engines will limit the amount of staff(Especially coders) needed to make a game, thus saving time and money on development. I feel uneasy if they surpass the $59.99 price range for new games but I can see, EA and Activision charging more for their games.

    You all forget dlc, season pass bullshit, games are already expensive when you compare it with the start of this gen.

    I won't pay a penny over £35 for any game. Regardless of what publishers say I really can't see next gen games costing more to make, especially those with staggeringly large budgets already.

    That's a stupid place holder price. I certainly don't intends to pay any more than $60-70.

    I hope it doesn't increase. $60.00 is a lot of dough for a game

    I would be willing to pay $70 depending on the game and circumstances. I would be extremely selective about what games I get right away. Which actually that doesn't apply to me much because I rarely buy games the day they release at full price.

    Blops 1 I did which I sort of regret.
    Ace Combat Assault Horizon, complete waste of money.

    Those are the only games I can remember that I recently got my hands on day of release.

    The other thing is if I'm paying $70 per game and then you offer DLC...fuck you. I'm not shelling out that much money only to be charged more for an incomplete game. Multiplayer DLC? Fine but don't make it cost too much. Multiplayer needs updating and new maps I get that. Single player DLC? You're not getting my money unless I decide what you're offering me for the price is worth my time and money. I'm not paying $15 for one mission that lasts 10 minutes.

    I have not played any of the Dishonored DLC. Its a game I loved but I have to check out how much those cost and if its worth it.
