No next-gen game price increase

While some developers believe that the development costs of “next gen” games are going to skyrocket, others don’t believe there’ll be a significant increase in costs. Still, there’s a pervasive fear that increased development costs will lead to an increase in the cost of games, with the $60 standard price going up – possibly to $70. In South Africa, we already pay higher prices for games, and that could see us paying up to R750 for console games. Thankfully, it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.
