Should 360 games still be $60?

Yes, there is no reason for them to lower prices for supporting the console further into it's life.

The games aren't getting any cheaper to make, so why should they be cheaper to buy?

Super Mario Bros. 3 was $49.99 when it was released in 1990.
$49.99 in 1990 has the same buying power as $91.13 does in 2014.

Atari 2600 carts were selling for $19.99 when the system was released in 1977. These carts held 4K of information and were usually designed and programmed by one or two people. Games for the Xbox 360 have entire teams working on them and can take up 6 GB of space.
$19.99 in 1977 has the same buying power as $78.59 in 2014.

Why do you think that games should be cheaper than one of their lowest prices in the history of gaming? It's insane to think that $60 is too high of a price, especially if you've been gaming for any stretch of time.

Link?

If you think it costs the same amount of money to develop a game now as it did nine years ago you're fooling yourself.

Do they cost any less now to produce compared to a few years ago?

Do you think games cost the same amount of money to develop as they did 37 years ago? Because games today are cheaper now than they were back then!
