After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Tell GR: Would You Pay More For Next-Gen Games?

Posted on Tuesday, January 22 @ 19:42:53 PST by

You can't trust this guy. Of all the things he's said over the years, I can't forget how tightly he held on to the assumption that the Wii HD would arrive "soon." C'mon Pachter, give it up. He works for them, you guys. He'll tell you that Next-Gen game prices will not go up. I'm not buying it. I think games can go up to as much as $80.

First of all, games have hit that price in the past. Higher even. The SNES vs Genesis console war saw many casualties, on both sides. None more severly in than in the price of a single game. Just ask Anthony. He'll tell ya. If that's not enough for you, look at the steady rise in portable software costs. The greatest possibility for raised rates also includes the possibility for cheaper games as well.

Just look at the iPhone market. Those games are all incredibly cheap. To combat that, expect more of your games to come in multiple forms with many different ways to pay. The same could be said for publishers who are smartly changing the way they deliver software to you digitally at a reduced price. Those games didn't cost as much to produce, but they can still be huge money makers. Minecraft certainly doesn't cost $60.

Enough doom and gloom from me, let me ask you this week's question:

If prices do go up, would you pay more for next-gen games? How much?
