    Wii U has been very underwhelming, says Michael Pachter. The new generation of consoles will appear to jump to +$10. The current generation is $60, but now it's $70. IMO, MP has been talking shit in the past. I doubt this is true, since, Xbox 720 hasn't even been announced yet.

    PS4 games were already announced to be $60 I'm rather sure.

    So $130-$150 for Australia?
    I'll be sticking with my gaming PC 'til the price is right and there are a bunch of exclusive titles that I'm interested in.

    I dealt with the greed tax for the last two generations. I'm not dealing with it anymore. If they go up to 70, I'll stop buying.

    Don't worry, guys, it won't be $70, but $69.99! XD Anyway, that would suck if it was true :/

    Ever considered the fact that we've been through an economical crisis and the value of the U.S. Dollar greatly decreased? What was $60 a few years ago may very well be worth $70 today - everything depends on how weak/strong the dollar is in relation to other currencies (especially the Yen and the Yuan).

    That said, as it was mentioned before, PS4 games were announced to cost $60 new, so there.

    EDIT: Added the Yuan since most of the hardware is made in China.

    Don't post Pachter shit here please. His predictions are less accurate than blindfolded cats are at throwing darts.

    Cats can't throw darts. They don't have imposable thumbs. Not even Hemingway cats.

    And Pachter can't be right in his predictions so that makes it even.

    The problem with you is that you don't think outside the box, use your imagination! There are plenty of ways for a cat to throw a dart.

    Apparently $60 in 2005 (when the Xbox 360 launched with $60 games) is equivalent to $72 today.

    So if games were around $70 for the next gen it'd be about the same cost as the beginning of the last gen. Boohoo.

    But if they're $60 then they'll be what, $10 cheaper adjusting for inflation?

    SCEA CEO Jack Tretton already said PS4 games will retail from $0.99 to $60. Just like the PS3. Also it's kinda surprising that anyone would suspect games costing roughly $70 when most pre-orders are already -10% or even -20% from the RRP. So basically quite a few PS3 games are already well below $60 if you don't count collector's editions etc.

    How the hell is Pachter even in a position where he is a source for things?

    Sony already announced that their price range for games is $0.99 - $60. Microsoft could conceivably charge $70... but why would they want to charge more than their competitors? Seems like it would be business suicide.

    But hey, you can't get easy publicity and press with common sense.

    hail unused games!
    70 is quite high although I must say the content would deserve it for the good games like rdr 2
