I'm guessing they are gonna get higher and higher every gen. One day a new game will cost 80 to 100 dollars. Then this whole graphics debate will be pointless because nobody can afford the most powerfull systems. If Sony and microsoft keep pushing for ultra advanced tech they'll lose their shirts eventually. After this gen I might be done buying new systems.

I guess you're to young to remember SNES and N64 days because games sometimes would cost that much.

there were many games during the SNES and N64 days that were $80+. Even PS1 games were $60 when the system was first released.
