Why do they have to mark the price up, games in general are already over priced! Apart from a couple of launch games to get me started i will not be buying games at that price.

Over half a ton for a single game is just a p**s take.

And earlier in the year Tretton said that game prices would not increase.

Tretton represents US and he was right in the US games are still 60 usd, but the re is always some room to screw Europe over, eurozone gave up long time ago to 1$=1€ scam, now they want to force it on UK charging £60. for digital games, that's unacceptable.

How come they can up RRP in UK but US pricing stays the same, I'd love to see the reaction of American gamers to games being $75 publishers would go out of business within weeks, but in Europe they will suck it up.

greedy basards, and dont tell me Sony doesnt control 3rd party pricing on PSS, they do they can set maximum price and publishers either accept it or they're out of PSS, its that simple, publishers dont have some magical default accessn to PSS they need to have that access granted

Happens every single time a new console is released, prices will eventually drop again, etc etc.

Same was also true for Blu-Ray movies, once more stock fills the shelves and competition ensues, prices fall - in the UK at least.

RRP is very rarely what the games sell for in store, sure this has been taken into account with these prices. RRP on current gen games is £50 technically, but I've certainly never paid that for a game, even at launch.

60 GBP = a little under 97 USD at the current rate of exchange (I'm an American studying in the UK, and paying close attention to the exchange rate, which is terrible right now), not 75.
I can't imagine paying nearly 100$ for a game, sorry.

Nearly always wait until they come down to £20 anyway, GTA 5 is the only game I've spent more on in the last 3 years and I even got that for less than the RRP, £38 instead of the £49.99 it is priced at for digital download... Pricing in the UK is a joke, Sony still have digital downloads priced at £40+ that I can get new at tesco for £20! Plus you can trade-in boxed games!
