Possible Explanations for the High Price of Video Games, and Why They Will Get Even Higher
Are you groaning at the price of video games coming out for the new consoles? According to next-gen.biz, those prices aren’t going anywhere.
The author of the Next Gen article, Matt Matthews, points out the dropoff of PlayStation 2 games and the rise of Wii games as just some of the reasons why the $60 price tag is going to stay on the shelves. And, really, the demand for the Wii is going to be a huge factor in this price rise.
One can only hope that the price of the games will reflect the amount of innovation, or in the least some awesome additions in game development as growth might foster some room for more experimental games.
