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.

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.
