So? I used to pay this for SNES games at Babbages all the time.
Most old school gamers don't even like paying $50 for a video game. The fact is if something cost more less people would buy it. If video game prices rose to $70 in the U.S, there would be less sales, more people would either wait for prices to drop or pirate. Despite the technological advancement we have today, it's much more difficult to redistribute a video games or pirate than it was during the PS2 era or SNES era. Mainly because of the draconian copyright copyright laws that regulate technology such as blu-ray discs, and all the licensing fees that goes into video game development that increases cost for video games. The more severe the copyright laws are, the more it benefits publishers/developers at the expense of consumers so they can jack up prices however they like. Not that I think games should be dirt cheap, but $70 is a bit overpriced. A return to a $50 retail price tag like it was during the PS2 era would be reasonable.
