Sony Computer Entertainment Japan has confirmed its game prices for the upcoming PS3 launch. Genji and Resistance will both be priced at Y5980, which is about $50 or or £27.
This differs from the official US SRP of $60, but new game prices vary a lot more in Japan and Sega’s software will be Y7140 which is about $60 or £33, whilst Armored Core 4 will cost Y8190, about $69 or £37. The average price of PS3 software so far appears to be around Y7000-7500, but its good to see Sony pricing titles like Resistance (FPSs are less popular in Japan) at a price to move. This article also confirms Sonic will miss the Japanese launch date and be released on December 21st.
Unfortunately, for British readers, I think we’re likely to see a bit of a price hike and that PS3 software here will cost about the same as xbox360 software (£40-£50). 😥
