Sony has officially announced that the game prices will be $ 70 in the new generation in a statement made in the past months. However, according to a new information, the company initially targeted more than $ 70.
Sony announced in September that PlayStation 5 games will be sold for $ 70. Also into areas where Turkey’s implementation of the euro, including pricing, will be 80 euros was announced.
This means that the price of many special games that Sony will release to PlayStation 5 will have a price tag of 70 dollars / 80 euros. For example, games like Demon’s Souls and Destruction All-Stars are among the productions that will use the new price tag. However, according to a new report, Sony first thought over $ 70 when setting new prices.
According to a new report, Sony first wanted to go above the $ 70 price tag when determining the prices of new games. The person who made Sony’s request come to light is a game producer who speaks to Bloomberg with anonymity. It is not known how much the company wants to increase the game prices to over $ 70.
It is also stated that companies will not directly adopt this $ 10 increase and will offer variable prices according to games. For example, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, which will be released on PlayStation 5, will have a price tag of $ 60.
However, there are already third-party game companies that have announced that the games will have a price tag of $ 70. Activision announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s Take-Two and NBA 2K21 will be available for $ 70.
The $ 60 price tag for the games started with the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 generations released in 2005 and 2006. The game prices, which were previously $ 50, were $ 60 in this generation, and this pricing continued in both the Xbox 360 / PlayStation 3 and Xbox One / PlayStation 4 generations. After the two console generations that have passed, game prices have increased again.
