Speaking with CNBC on Feb. 22, Sony Computer Entertainment of America’s President and CEO Jack Tretton clarified the price we can expect to pay for PlayStation 4 titles this holiday season. The next-generation consoles will support free-to-play games, and Sony “will offer games with prices ranging from $0.99 to the more traditional $60 range.”
Tretton went on to talk a bit on how Sony didn’t show what the console itself looked like during the announcement. “I can promise you that it will be plastic,” he stated, “it won’t be triangle shaped or round. You’ll see the box in due time.”
This news should make consumers a little less worried, as price points for games have been a concern since Amazon posted their placeholder prices for preorders at $99.99 for games and $1,000 for the console itself. While there is no word on console price, we expect to hear something as soon as possible.
