    Is it because they will add (free) walkthrough videos for every game too.

    Good thing CDPR are awesome and already offer a free upgrade to next gen for those who pre-purchase at $60 on consoles.

    Too bad that awesome-ness doesn't extend to Linux, as I found out last night...

    Which would be a shame if the platform hasn't come to Linux...oh wait...

    Makes sense. They've been talking about how cost of development is only going up with new technologies and engines. I just wish it wasn't sports games that would start it. It's like Call of Duty, but with balls.

    That sucks. It has to be a special game for me to pick it up at release these days so I miss out on those prices anyway.
    Cyberpunk will be the first since Death Stranding. It's rough finding the time to play games at release anymore. =[

    Most games these days aren't worth $60, much less $70. I'll just wait for them to go on sale and only buy the stuff I really like at launch.

    People against such practices already get games via sales and/or pirate, while people who can suck it up will suck it up. Best course of action is to just ignore next generation of consoles entirely - PC market is much friendlier in terms of prices, so that's one way to avoid this kind of BS.

    Cost of development is going up, but so are the audience and sales numbers, not to mention how much money companies tend to grab through microtransactions and lootboxes. As much as I don't want to be cynical, in this case publishers increase prices just because they can.

    Don't know in which Europe you are living but 69.99€ are very common for new releases in my european country, too.

    Yeah, some huge inhuman balls, and they fearlessly bounce them all around the field.
