    PS3 Square Button [Answered] PS3 Game Pricing??

    Sponsored Links
    From [Register or Login to view links]:
    At the CESA Developers Confrence Hirokazu Hamamura, president of Enterbrain (publisher of Famitsu) talked about the price range of upcoming PS3 software. Much like Xbox and Xbox 360, he sees a significant price increase between PS2 and PS3. Hamamura-san forsees the cheapest PS3 software being at least $70 USD (EUR 57 / YEN 7,800) while the most expensive would be around $79 USD (EUR 65 / YEN 8,800). That will leave Canadian gamers paying $83-$94.

    Perhaps Kutaragi was right and we should all just suck it up and get second jobs.
    I was hoping the game prices would be the same so i hope this is just speculative.

    That is of course, when the PS3 is ever able to run pirated copys of games. And good luck downloading 40+GB immages off the internet.... ISP's will wise up when they see the bandwidth usage skyrocket and then its a matter of time until people are caught.

    Renting is another story, but dont expect to rent these things anywhere short of 5$ each. Then you need a Blue-Ray burner and blank Blue-Ray media, which the burner should be horribly expensive at launch, I wouldnt be shocked to see BL blanks start at 20$ each. Then of course you need to pay for the chip, and the install (unless you want to play with your 400$ investment). I dont see this a viable option until around 2 years after launch.

    It's just going to push people to piracy that much further.

    I think it's only speculation so nothing to worry about. I still think that it won't go up till $60 well I hope.

    i personally think $50 is way to much to charge for new ps2 games. it should be around $20

    i hope the ps3 will be hackable

    It will, sonys Fullproof PSP that wouldnt ever need a forced firmware update lived up to its name for what a few months???

    Personally 50$ isnt to much for a game you love and get hours upon hours of time out of. IE Final Fantasy 7, even though I paid full price for it, it was worth every dime.

    80$ is outrageous for anything short of an epic masterpice, and this will stab the gameing population in the jugular. I can see 60$ as a hike in hardware can lead to more $$, even for the simple fact a Blue-Ray ROM disk probably costs more then a DVD ROM.

    100% unacceptable. This will push a TON of otherwise legal gamers into piracy...

    So basically if you are practically broke and you don't have the money to a buy a game it is acceptable to pirate games because you wouldn't of have bought them in the first play and as a result the company wouldn't get the money anyway from you! (I am joking off couse Laugh Out Loud)
