Japanese Sony PS3 Games are Cheap
Japanese Sony PS3 games are cheap. Relatively speaking, of course. Sony plans to keep their PS3 game prices in line with PS2 game prices. In other words, they want to price their games at the equivalent of $41 – $58. The pricing of the first wave of launch titles is set at 5,980 Yen, or about $51.
Now, you may say “Hey, that’s not cheap!”. But compared to all the dire predictions of $100 next-gen games, it is cheap indeed. In North America, it looks like prices will tend to be $59US, which is on the expensive side, but still doable.
For me, “doable” doesn’t necessarily mean I want to do it all the time. I’m still going to look for used PS3 games because that’s what I do now for my PS2.
My questions to you are: do you think $59 is a good price point? Do you think we’ll get cheaper games than that?
