That would never happen. Launch prices would actually be increased on purpose, as now they have your metaphorical balls gripped inside a metaphorical vice.

but the argument for that would be that since they no longer have to compete against piracy or used games because of the intrusive DRM they could afford to lower the price.

edit: not to mention most games wholesale for $30

that is the silliest argument i have heard this year in regards to anything.

I would be happy.
I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

You don't make money if you lower the price.

I would love it and I know I would end up buying a lot more games because of it.

Block used, prices stay the same, doesn't matter to me. I don't buy used.
The writing was on the wall with Bioware the minute you could completely void all of your decisions with one choice in KOTOR.

I likes to remember the Austraila, in Australia gps are better off importing due to the clearly over-exaggerated prices with far too many ridiculous launch prices.

Despite the International economic nonsense, they still are getting mightily ripped off with launch priced games for no logical reason whatsoever at this point, outside of inflated & out of date currency conversion and import fees. Which make no sense these days, as many hurdles have been sorta fixed.

You really don't want to know how this actually plays out in a decade with the "console" games. Poor gps really don't want to see that metaphorical vice inching closer and closer. I see why gps don't want to acknowledge it's existence now.
