Has there been any hint of the prices that PS4 games are likely to be sold at ?

We got the games in the system for €64,99 and €69,00. I'm guessing the'll drop a fiver making them €10,- more expensive than PS3 games.

The only official word as of yet on next gen pricing is by EA who have clearly stated that they are raising their RRP to £55.

This is confirmed by pre-order pricing of BF4 on next gen systems....but that games is £45 on PC/PS3/360.

Activision will no doubt follow suite for their CoD franchise.

If I were to speculate i'd suggest we might see a real £5 increase in prices in stores with the higher profile games such as CoD and BF4 holding higher pricing.

Its all getting a bit excessive I think, bad enough that you have to have PS+ to play online.
Its all these extra costs that will ultimately decide my PS4 fate.

I hope they keep the prices the same as the PS3 but we shall see.

Games prices whether they raise them by £5 or not aren't cheap. However, I look at the price and compare it to other entertainment. A meal out for two can easily be £30-£40 if not more for one evening. A film at the cinema for two sets you back nearly £20 and that's for 1.5-2 hours entertainment. A few drinks down at the pub one evening can be £20 or more. So when I look at the hours of entertainment I get out of a game costing £40 (or £45 if the price goes up), it doesn't seem quite so bad.

Rrp for current gen is £49.99 most selling for £35.99 to £39.99

I'm gonna assume next gen will be £59.99 rrp so £45.99 or £49.99 with the exception of Cod and EA games being higher price for the obvious reasons.

Remember though everyone wants your business which should bring the price down so might be only a few £ more then current gen.

Given that EA led the way with attempting to raise prices for the current generation and that they've already stated that they are increasing RRP prices to £54.99 then it's a fairly safe bet that most games will be at or below £54.99 RRP.

So what your saying is, to eat out, go to the cinema or have a few drinks are expensive as well :D

Its not as if they don't make shit loads of money from games.
Take GT5 for example, took 5 years to develop at an approximate cost of $80 million. (roughly £51.5 million. The 2nd most expensive game to make.)
It sold 10.66 million copies, lets say at an average of £30 (total £319,800,000)
£270 million profit if my sums are correct, and that doesn't include any DLC.

End of the day Im tight :D

You certainly get value for money these days by putting in the gaming hours on multiplayer. I visited a local arcade this week to see games like Mario Kart 2 at £1 a go and last gen graphics may I add. I think back to the days when I pumped many 10p's into arcade machines. Going off topic but what the hell happened to the arcade scene? The current arcades are dead, shit and expensive.
