With the release of next generation consoles approaching, many gamers have begun speculating on the price of newly released titles for these consoles. In transitioning to a new generation of consoles, many gamers have wondered if we will see a $10 hike in price, similar to the transition between the PS2 and PS3.
Thankfully, Sony CEO Jack Tretton has confirmed that PS4 titles will not retail for more than $60. In a report by Kotaku on Feb. 22, Tretton says Sony is “gonna welcome free-to-play models, games from 99 cents up to those 60 dollar games.” Later stating “We'll justify that $60 price point."
Going further into detail about the price of newly released titles for the PS4, Kotaku brings up the fact that PS4 titles will actually cost less than PS3 new releases if they cost $60. Referring to the US Department of labor's inflation calculator, it is reported that $60 in 2006 would be compared to $68.54 in 2013. With this in mind, PS4 new releases will actually cost less than PS3 new releases in 2006.
