According to a report, Sony discussed further raising game prices before settling on the $ 70 price point. We know that most of Sony’s first-party games will cost $ 70. That’s the price of future titles like Demon’s Souls and Destruction All-Stars. The report does not reveal how high Sony is discussing, but the idea to go beyond $ 70 was reportedly from game managers.
We know that based on games from Sony this year, the company paid $ 70, but it is said that companies will likely not accept this $ 10 price hike and instead want the prices to be more reasonable. However, it’s important to note that not every Sony first-party game will be released at $ 70.
The jump to $ 70 is the first price hike since the Xbox 360-PlayStation 3 generation that saw prices jump from $ 50 to $ 60 in the previous generation. This $ 60 price tag remained steady throughout the Xbox One – PlayStation 4 generation. Only time will show the price truth, but it seems Sony intends to keep it.
