If it happens, it's another video game crash. That's why I do not want next gen to come. I have money, but not everyone else does. Increasing costs with even fewer games sold = DISASTER. This gen has been hard enough. It doesn't need to get any harder right now. I think things need to wait until the tech to make such games is cheaper.

We're already at the point where most games are a choice between graphics (Sorcery) and gameplay (MineCraft). Imagine paying $120 for a linear corridor fest.

N64 games were $80. Anyone remember that? Worked out just fine, and you'll never see $120 games. They may be $80, but the industry will not attempt to try and sell games for over $100. Guaranteed.

My Nintendo games are half that, $60. Half the cost and twice the fun!

So, this article and topic are very misleading since next gen with the Wii U, games have not doubled in price. Just some games have gone up by $10 to match PS3 and 360 games.
