Famitsu Publisher Talks PS3 Game Pricing
August 30th, 2005  Posted in Playstation 3, PS3
At the CESA Developers Confrence Hirokazu Hamamura, president of Enterbrain (publisher of Famitsu) talked about the price range of upcoming PS3 software. Much like Xbox and Xbox 360, he sees a significant price increase between PS2 and PS3. Hamamura-san forsees the cheapest PS3 software being at least $70 USD (EUR 57 / YEN 7,800) while the most expensive would be around $79 USD (EUR 65 / YEN 8,800). That will leave Canadian gamers paying $83-$94.

Perhaps Kutaragi was right and we should all just suck it up and get second jobs.

Update: This page is getting tons of hits right now, which is awesome. Thanks everyone! And by all means, please check out the rest of the site while you're here. But to help my piddly server cope with traffic I've temporarily turned this page into static html which has crippled it's "comments" and "recent headlines" functionality. I hope you can live without those.

I wouldn't even pay 60$ for another Sony game, personally. Xbox 360 has everything I need.

$60 is pushing it now.... so I wouldn't pay $70 yet warm me up with some great titles and then raise the price again.....

remember if don't sell at $60 they won't sell at $70 then they go on sale and I get them cheaper.... smile.gif
