I think you missed what the professor said. The reason why games are $60 today, is because when EA monopolized the football video game market, they raised the price to $59.99. As a result, others followed suit - which is why, new releases are currently priced at $59.99.

However, I thought the price was raised when the next-gen consoles came out?

It was announced that the games were going to be $60 this gen before the XBOX 360 was even released so just how did EA cause other companies to raise their prices?

Haha the funniest part is that last year EA made a 2 billion cash offer for take two interactive. The share price went from 8$ to 17$ from friday-monday. After not accepting for a long a.ss time EA retracted the offer.

its about time something is done about this... when madden had some competition it would improve more year to year... now seems like they stay stagnant cuz there's no competing games... it's bulls***

ur dumbass should care.... this is gonna be a domino effect for the other sports games that are out.... 2k and live are horrible as it is, imagine if they made it so you had to buy one or the other (will never purchase nba live sorry)

same thing goes with the baseball games... mvp baseball was the best baseball game of its time and 2k has a monopoly on that now.
