The statement that game prices must rise has recently come from the head of PlayStation. He noticed that the production of ambitious works there, such as God of War or The Last of Us Part II, is continuously growing, but the income for the studio hardly changes. Game prices have fluctuated around the standard $ 60 for the past 14-15 years. Technology is moving forward; players’ expectations and developer’s efforts are increasing.


How to deal with such costs?

Although the prices of PC games are catching up with those on consoles, Steam, Epic Games, or even G2A services are accessible among “appreciators,” where you can often find heavily discounted titles and not so long since the debut. Anyway, games are cheaper today, due to the growing number of pre-order and premiere orders. There are also subscription services – Xbox Game Pass, PS Now, or EA Access. Despite such facilities, the new generation promises to be much more expensive.
