"If you take a step back and look at the data, an hour of video game content is still one of the cheapest forms of entertainment," the firm's analyst writes. "Quantitative analysis shows that video game publishers are actually charging gamers at a relatively inexpensive rate, and should probably raise prices."

These are the same guys trying to sell you bull**** like how killing off Net Neutrality is a good thing or how you should be in favor of tax breaks for the rich. Screw them.

If gamers didn't s*** blood at the idea of a price bump for new games, particularly considering how atypical the used market is for games, chances are devs would be quite so far along in trying to figure out how to dick people out of their money.

Doesn't matter. This is where we are.
I wonder if 'Deus Vult' would still be such a popular phrase in nerdom if they knew there was no 'v' sound in Latin.

I would find a new hobby if base game prices went up from $60. There is plenty for me to do. Make games less expensive to create. Does every new game NEED to have the biggest game world if it's just filled with s***ty boring filler side activities? Do you really need movie star actors to do voice overs? Do AAA games REALLY need 3, 4, 5 year production cycles? Do Madden, FIFA, CoD REALLY need yearly releases? Does "s***ty the s***" 3rd person action game actually need an orchestral score? I'm sorry but there are ways to trim costs on game development, and frankly, I believe most of it is bloated by the publisher, not the dev team.
I post a lot using my phone. Most "typos" are probably a result of autocorrect

Should probably raise prices?

How about consolidate their budgets and divert some of the advertising budget into actually developing the game?

Even at $60 they still make plenty of money. This is just a matter of them wanting even MORE money.

I wouldn’t mind higher base prices if it meant all games were actually fully developed and not filled with locked DLC and microtransactions.

Just wait for games to drop in price.

Unless it's a Nintendo first party game, you can most likely save $20 bucks easily by waiting a few months.

I understand waiting can diminish the experience for some multiplayer games.

Got Shadow of War for $10 due to a price glitch and AC: Origins is going to be $30 on Black Friday.

With that being said, if they offered ALL of the content instead of trying to make us gamble for it, then I wouldn't mind giving them a little more but I don't trust them to do that. They will still want more. It's human nature and the nature of business. To a business, how much is enough? Just a little bit more.
