PlayStation 4 games will likely stay capped at $60, according to Jack Tretton the CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America. The executive reiterated Sony’s philosophy of making the PS4 more developer friendly in a recent interview with CNBC, and explained that games will have a wide range in prices.
“PS4 will offer games with prices ranging from $0.99 to the more traditional $60 range with the ability for players to sample games before they buy,” said Tretton.
The PlayStation 4 will also feature free to play games on the new console, an initiative that has already been started on the PlayStation 3 with titles like Jetpack Joyride, DUST 514, and DC Universe. The good news for gamers is that it looks like the next-generation of consoles won’t be hiking up the price of games.
While we’re likely to continue to see the continued influx of downloadable content and micro-transactions in console games, at least we won’t be paying more for the price of admission.
