PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S games are already $70 a piece. Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom was Nintendo’s first $70 game. By the way, you can torture the Koroks. Seriously, there are people crucifying them. The last Sega game I played with Sonic Frontiers, which I really enjoyed. I look forward to the upcoming DLC.
As for the topic at hand, Sega was asked about the rising game prices. This was the answer:
Sega Sammy CEO Haruki Satomi and CFO Koichi Fukazawa were asked about the possibility of raising game prices during a Q&A session following the publication of the company’s full-year earnings in April.
“In the global marketplace, AAA game titles for console have been sold at $59.99 for many years, but titles sold at $69.99 have appeared in the last year,” Sega said in a newly published English transcript of the event.
“We would like to review the prices of titles that we believe are commensurate with price increases, while also keeping an eye on market conditions.”Video Games Chronicles
It is inevitable that the prices will continue to increase, and gamers will pay whatever the price ends up being.
