If game companies were smart, they would realize that the high prices is enabling more "game stores" and "piracy". If games were 30-40 there wouldn't be a need for second hand game sales, as much as there is today.

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..

The idiot "gamers" that are waiting in long a.ss lines on the launch day of a new game are a big part of it as well, along with all the reasons the article mentioned. I do love the fact that a game like infinity blade on my ipad & iphone goes for like $8 bucks and it's a really good game, hopefully it has an impact but I definitely have my doubts.

this is true,but games cost much more to make now.i think if they were really smart they would stop waitin 2 and 3 years between sequels.that would cut development cost significantly

You obviously a 90s baby, but snes and n64 games were in the 70 range. This was actually one of the reason sony took market share from nintendo with their $40 games. Then ps3 games were 50, and this Gen with 60.
bruh I had a snes and 64... weren't any games in the $70 range... I do remember coppin a few snes games at $60 tho (chrono trigger and mario RPG def were), and 64 had hella games at $60.

have u not seen the recent market trends of declining sales?(brb going to go grab that march npd numbers thread)

ppl aint buying like they used to. the huge ips sell....everything else gets pennies.



Prices will probably be dropping. Video game sales are down big time, companies like Activision, EA, etc are really struggling.

what they should do is like..say u buy madden 12 full price keep the receipt and when madden 13 comes out bring the game n reciept....n then u can get madden 13 for half off...but only for original brand new games u bought not used...

or even do that for any ea game if u buy a ea game at full price u get a 50 percent discoutn on any ea game..

prices wont drop for tha same reason gas wont drop.value of a dollar is sh*t,and people have already adjusted to a new standard of 59.99.and next gen-consoles are right around tha corner.prices will either stay at 60,or go up.definitely wont go down

the price of games, will stay the same or increase. the demand for a launched game that gets great reviews, will appeal to the only market video game players that matter: kids. peer pressure, and competition alone make this a certainty.

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
release date madness, but if you read articles on used games, they talk about that. i dont really need to play online, and forget gamestop (even though i go there), u can get used games on amazon for much cheaper. if games were $40 new...I'd buy them more often, but $60...that's a fill up in my tank or two hats....sh*t something good with a coupon code.
