    Honestly I'm more intrigued than anything at this point. I kind of want to see just HOW far these companies go to screw over their sports games.

    They surprise me with new lows each year.

    And course still full of lootboxes and microtransactions because AAA publishers are worse than cancer.

    Given the severe lack of good launch games, the existence of DLC (I hate the whole DLC model), and lazy developers, I absolutely will boycot this next gen. And now they want to scalp us even harder with $70 games and $700 consoles? GET FUCKED.

    In Germany triple A games have been at 69.99 a while. I havent bought a triple A game in a while let alone new and at full price. If I buy new games I usually wait until they are alot cheaper or I buy them used a 1-2 weeks after release, most of the time over half the price. Just cant afford spending 70 euro on a game atm.

    Nothing unusual for me, or the price for a AAA console game is 69,99€ here in Italy or in euro zone.
    We just wait couple of weeks for price drop.

    If Nintendo (the only company I consistently purchase AAA titles for) follows suit, I will pick back up my pirate hat that I though I set aside forever. Games should be accessible for everyone. Video games have a larger audience than they ever have and a cheaper production cost in terms of physical media. Other companies might get away with this because games are usually discounted 40-50% the year after release, but Nintendo doesn't play by those rules;

    It's hard to believe there's idiots out there that buy a brand new console at launch, only to play NBA 2K and/or Madden, and/or Call of Duty. My penis has more taste than their gaming taste.

    I don't hate any of those games necessarily (although it's pretty much rinse and repeat) but to ONLY play those and to drop $400-$500 on a launch console for them, just stupid.

    Then some of them pawn the console for $75.

    Sounds about right.

    I remember reading somewhere saying next gen prices would increase. In all honestly if you can afford a $500 system you can afford a $70 game. I remember PS2 games was $49.99 then when PS3 came out the prices jumped to $59.99 it was complaints but people got over it so the same thing will happen with the PS5. I personally never buy games for $60 considering most games are now swarmed with DLC and you feel like you are getting half of a game.
    *cough Mortal Kombat 11*

    Back in PS2 era you had the complete game no updates no extra fees and some of the greatest games were made in PS2 era. Nowadays they sell you half complete game and demand full price.

    Usually you'll have to wait a while and at that point I'm not sure if those games can still be called "new"? It boils down to your own definition of new.

    If nba2k fans have any balls they should boicott buying the game for a while to get the message across. I figure they probably won't do that though.

    Here's how to get this exact game for 1/20 of the price:
    buy literally any other NBA game.

    I wouldn't know honestly my PS2 was never connected to the internet back in those times multiplayer was there but not really a thing just playing with your friends whenever they came over.

    I'm the same way I rather buy on ebay or offerup or wait black friday before I spend $60 on a new game. The last PS4 game I bought for full price was Need For Speed and that game wasn't even worth the $60 and most games are like cars the value drops dramatically unless it is a super popular game like Red Dead Redemption 2 very few games remain full price.

    Except for Nintendo.

    The "standard" AUD price of PS4 games is $79, at least at JB Hi-Fi, with only a few things below that - and two games (Fast and Furious Crossroads, Mafia Trilogy) being $89.

    If prices increase any more, it'll be impossible to justify spending money outside of a digital discount.
