Shouldn't it be $50? The hardware is much more limited than PS4/XO so developmental cost should be significantly cheaper. PS3 was $60 because of the cell and MS just copied with 360 staring with Gears which games originally cost $50. Why Nintendo Wii U though?

Shouldn't XB1/PS4 be cheaper then since they're both x86 (exactly like PCs) while Wii U is PowerPC?

If Platinum was HAND drawn, she'd be on paper, fool. This is a video game. They just made her on screen, no "drawing" involved -Delano7 on BlazBlue

Because it's the standard cost for games? 360/PS3/PX1/PS4/PC games all cost $60 new and retail.

They are $60 because we accept that price.

I buy all my games new, and I have never paid $60

Mario 3D world was 44.99 at my best buy on launch
DKC:TF was 19.99 as they messed up my preorder and I made a huge scene for them to honor the price

Others were purchased post launch
