I dont see why games are that expensive. I thought thats why they went to actual disc and went away from cartridges.

This is why everyone flashes their drives

Yall really pay $60 for a game?

Y'all must be them n*ggas that actually buy on release date instead of waiting

For example Mass effect 3 sold a sh*t load, i waited

Not even a full month and mass effect is on sale for $40....good price but im still waiting

I know PS 4 will see alot of that day n date stuff with Digital/Boxed...but at this point in the PS 3's lifecycle it's too expensive for Sony to do that...

But when the PS 4 drops for $400 and sells like Columbian prostitues to the secret service....

Sony will be on the right track to being in the black again...
all Consoles are sold for less than production at cost, they recoup the money through games. In other words console sales won't make them a profit.

i never understood the price at all .. but the one thing i often talked about is game like madden and 2k sports games should make a core platform and just make all the changes dlc ..sell the base for like 120 bucks and then the dlc roster updates allstar game stadiums and all the sh*t that comes with a new season in sports sell that for 10 bucks or a yearly subscription..cats end up spending 60 bucks for a new roster and tweaks of the mechanics so the makers can say hey this is whats new

@ going up... we already moved past that possibiliity back when games was cartridge based. Thus the switch from propieratory cartridge to CD's... DVD & Blu-Ray which is drifting us towards downloading/installing to hard drives,

Companies lost that excuse once that transition took place, otherwise they'd be on that Super Nintendo/Sega Genesis/Neo Geo where we'd be paying $80 for some titles

This argument falls apart when you realize that games cost over $60 if you want everything on the disc.

Not all the Wii was sold at a profit from Day one...

and I know how companies makes their money... I said when the PS 4 starts selling like crazy they will be on their way to being in the black again...

Subscribe to this thread...and when the next gen starts and games are $70... then you can come back and say I was right

why the hell would a company do that? you think a company would say..ok pay 120 and get the game forever

instead of selling a brand new game for 60 every year..

from a gamer standpoint..hell ya..from a business..which is why they do this..for money..not to make us happy

fu*k no

i havent bought a $60 game in a long time; in fact, the only $60 game I but in madden and 2k12 every year. If I need COD or any other game.... thats whats amazon is for. I am the perfect reason why Best Buy is going out of business..

I've had my 360 since 06' and I believe I may have paid full price for literally less than 5 games and I own at least 40/50.

I've had my PS3 since 10' and I've yet to pay 60 for everything but it doesn't matter because I have a friend that LOVES to get the deluxe 80/100 buck version of games. Funny thing is that I have alot of those same games but I paid 40/50 bucks for them.

**remembers NEO-GEO 17 years ago with games that were easily 2x the price now** Even super-nintendo games were around $90 when they came out. Personally I don't think that $60 is unreasonable..it's not cheap, but customers were paying much more a decade ago, and the technology then can't compare to now. Not to mention that the US DOLLAR was worth more, meaning these games now would of only been 40-45 bucks then...something to think about...
