PS4 and next Xbox games will retail at $70, ten dollars more than current gen games, said Wedbush Securities Research Analyst Michael Pachter during a panel at SXSW.
The news was tweeted this afternoon by Spike and GamesTrailers Host Geoff Keighley.
This comes after Sony clarified the price point of PS4 games when SCEA President and CEO Jack Tretton explained that Sony, "will offer games with prices ranging from $0.99 to the more traditional $60 range with the ability for players to sample games before they buy."
It's important to note that Tretton's quote never gives a hard number, like a MSRP of $59.99, etc., which leaves plenty of room for interpretation of what Sony's view of a "traditional $60 range" might actually be.
IGN has reached out to Sony and Pachter for further comment.
Why this man still has a job as an analyst, I don't know. Though you COULD say he's actually excellent at his job considering everything he "predicts" come true...
So, if you were banking your next move on his analysis, you just do the opposite of whatever he says and you're in for some mad cash. Now maybe this might be the one, maybe, just maybe, he could be right this time. I and many others hope he's not but - what if he is?
So, what are your thoughts on this? NOT the Pachter thing, because everyone's gonna say the same thing. My question pertains to the *possibility* that games on the 720/PS4 will be $70. That's $10 more than you're accustomed to paying.
Are you willing to go the extra 10 yards?
