How much would you spend on a PS3 game?
Are you of the mind that $60 is too much to spend for a video game? According to SPOnG, they say that Sony exec Kaz Hirai has told PlayStation Magazine that anything over $59 should be expected as far as pricing goes for their next-generation games. SPOnG quotes Hirai in PSM:
"I don't think consumers expect software pricing to suddenly double. So, the quick answer is that we want to make it as affordable as possible, knowing that there is a set consumer expectation for what software has cost for the past twelve years. That's kind of the best answer I can give you. So, if it becomes a bit higher than $59, don't ding me, but, again, I don't expect it to be $100."
So, really, how much should we all be spending on games? I've had many a casual gamer come up and mention that they heard the PS3 games will cost upwards of $80. I don't think we will see that this generation, but it's certainly not out of the realm of possibility. Is Metal Gear Solid 4 worth $80-$90? How about $70?
