The full quote from the interview reads as follows:
Demon’s Souls has an RRP of £70 on PS5 – significantly more than gamers had been accustomed to paying for PS4 games. Do you consider that a fair price for a video game?
“Yes, yes, I do. If you measure the hours of entertainment provided by a video game, such as Demon’s Souls compared to any other form of entertainment, I think that’s a very straightforward comparison to draw.”
This seems to certainly hint that £70 prices are here to stay and that we can expect most first-party games, especially those from Sony’s AAA studios, to cost £70/$70 on PS5. But, Jim Ryan does highlight that this isn’t a price point Sony has settled on for every game right now. Following up, Jim Ryan is asked the following:
So [premium first party development studio)]Naughty Dog’s next PS5 game will cost £70?
“I’m not making any predictions about anything that might or might not happen in the future.
What are your thoughts on this price point for games and are you satisfied with paying the extra amount.
The PS5 is out now.
