That's why we're discussing it, because we don't know, and have nothing better to do!
the ps3 games will cost 40-$50 because that how it has been 4 the past of yrs of games except 4 the nintendo64 those games cost like $60 cause those dum@$$ cartriges
Life is a game whether you win or lose,save or conquer or be a normal person u decide your Destiny!
It hasn't just been the last 4 years. Games have been that price for as long as I can remember.
I thinking it would be around the same price as the PS2 when it came out around $300.00. Anyway I think that would be a reasonable price for it with all that technology. So I would buy it if it was that little money for such a high tech game console. :wink:
€57.82 + €12.18 for the stores= Major Rip off.
i'll never complain about games prices again. As DVD's have been available for some time now surely production cost must go down.
So why are games so expensive in Holland...?
And it's not true that games have been the same price all the time. At least not in the Netherlands... SNES games used to be about Fl. 120,- (about €55,-). New PS1 games used to be Fl. 120,- to Fl. 130,- (€55,- to €60,-).
New PS2 games however used to cost Fl. 150,- (€67,-) and now most new PS2 games cost about €70,-...
Strangely enough, GameCube games are the cheapest in Holland, they're always €60,-.
So how come games are so much more expensive in the Netherlands?
I remember going to the store to pick up *whatever game* for my ps1, the cost $50, when I'd look over the N64 games they were $70-$75. No wonder the N64 died, Nintendo took a lot of heat for that, thankfully they wised up in time for the GC.Originally Posted by J Master
I live in Belgium and the new games cost around 62.00 euro's except for games like eye-toy and Time Crisis are about 75 euro's. Always tought it was standart unil i copared it with the U.S. and other.
Your lucky you don't live here.
But i don't have a problem paying for it, i only buy top-games that are worth the price.
Think the Ps3 games are going to cost the same
The aim of an argument or discussion should not be victory, but progress
most games here are $59.99CND(about $44.99US) when they come out, except for socom w/headset $79.99CND(about $59.99).
from what i remember (in the UK) the price of a nintendo cartridge never went down. where ass there where so many diffrent price gaps for the PS(1 and 2). and i am sure that things will stay the small for the ps3
i.e. New game = £40-£45
i'm sure it was simular for euros or dollars
6 months old = £35-£25
Platnum release = £20 (or less)
most new games i see on sale on the internet for about £30 (give or take about £3) (i shop at www.play.com) which i think is fair... so i feel that most shops will be droping their prices.
media for some reason dosent change it's price much. a new pre-recorded VHS video film was about £10 in 1985, and it seemed to be about the same price now as they are making way for DVD.
on the whole more people live in europe than north america. (i think europe has about 15 percent more people than the US, but that is totally of the top of my head)Originally Posted by Swordmaster Jehuty
the price may have more to do with splintered markets... europe has so many diffrent lanquages. that and europe has a greater culture of taxation...which makes everything (but helth-care).
I would guess $49.99.
I guess you're right. VAT here in the Netherlands is 19%... Though the number of games that are actually translated (except for some EA games) is quite scarce... Not as much as in Germany/France/Spain. (Why don't people in those countries simply learn some English...? :P)Originally Posted by Phil
I say that £40 is a good price for games but they know that people will pay any amount for a good game so that may price games at £45 or £50 pounds.
I think £40-£50 for new games but obiviously they will get cheaper when they get older.
Dayum! I'm buying my games from new zealand from now on! Im sick of paying 99-109 Australian Dollars for new games!
i am with you standarsh
I think we should take into consideration what medium Sony decided to use as well, if they just go with DVD then I'm guessing that games will be no more than £44.99. If they decide to use Blu - ray or HD-DVD then prices could rise slightly.
I read an article stating that they have found a way to lower production costs of Blu - ray discs so that it comes to within 10% of the price as a standard DVD... Would you believe that I don't have a link to the article because I can't find it though, typical... :roll:
games r not more expensive in different countries! lol its just because of the currency...in the end they r the same profit
games r way overpriced and thats because companies dont make money off of the systems (systems should cost hundreds more)
a PS2 game only costs about $17 to make the disc.... maybe even lower i havent look into to it for a while
