While you would think a 40 minute event would be the perfect time to announce your launch line up of games, as well as address the elephant of changing the default retail price point; Sony Interactive disagrees. Opting instead to delegate it to a blog post after, along with various accessories, we can now go over it here.
First up is the launch line up – which note is missing third party games like Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition – of first party games. From the PlayStation blog, your large AAA games will now cost $70, and smaller ones like Marvel’s Spider-rMan: Miles Morales and Sackboy A Big Adventure will cost $50 and $60 respectively.
If you’re wanting to pick up the PlayStation 5, it will run you either $399 for the digital version or $499 for the full disk one, with pre-orders starting tomorrow. Additionally, at launch the PlayStation Plus Collection will be available for subscribers, letting them play a selection of PlayStation 4 games at no additional cost.
What do you think about Sony embracing $70 games? Do you think it is more justified then games with microtransactions doing so? Let us know in the comments below!
I’ve been a gamer for years of various types starting with the Sega Genesis and Shining Force when I was young. If I’m not playing video games, I’m often roleplaying, reading, writing, or pondering things brought up by speculative fiction.
