Earlier this week, Microsoft took some time to confirm that their first-party games would continue to be priced at the standard $59.99. With Sony having been tight lipped so far, Shacknews reached out to them for a comment, to which a representative said, “We have announced the pricing for our first party line up of PS4 launch and launch window games. All four titles, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Driveclub, Knack, and inFamous Second Son are all $59.99.”
It’s great news considering the launch of new consoles is a prime time to adjust for inflation. It wasn’t that long ago that the price of games rested at the 50 dollar mark, at least it feels like it wasn’t that long ago.
Of course, this doesn’t guarentee that third-party publishers will continue their price policies, but it would be strange if they didn’t. For the most part, Microsoft and Sony are the ones controlling the benchmark on consoles.
