Anyone remember gameboy games for £20 ea?
I'm afraid this is the way it's doing to get. I remember times when games were cheap yes. But no I will never stop buying games or consoles because games get more expensive. It's only natural. Apart from economic crysis, alot of work goes into making these games. Added to this is the fact that we gamers are more demanding each and every day. We consume content like never before. This forces the developers to adapt, make content better, longer. This costs alot of money. Anyway I wouldn't price all games just yet. But yes I will still buy games for consoles.

Yes ofcourse I won't be able to buy as many games as I used to, but hey I'd rather be able to buy games than not having them released at all due to money issues. Can't remember how many times some of my favorite sequals got cancalled/delayed alot because of money issues.
the game looks realy cool but $100? thats crazy im happy i like all the cheap games on steam
Im going to stick with my PC no matter what,Greed will be the down fall...
Thats just outrageous I hope all games don't go to this pricing anytime soon

looks like your out of luck becuase the are
I wouldn't freak out yet until prices are confirmed. These games are still in development and haven't even gone gold yet and the systems themselves aren't even close to be released. Console games are already naturally more expensive than PC games (which are admittedly over priced) so going up another $40 in price for games isn't a smart business move considering that the games CAN be cheaper. Remember when NEO-GEO games were $200? Game prices today are actually cheaper than they were a long time ago. I remember spending $60 on Tekken 2 on the PSone! Well.. my dad did, but you get my point.
This will be the "nickel and dime" console generation, im gald im not playing them or buying them. By the time you pay for the console the peripherals the subscription fees then the cost of new games you could have built yourself a beast pc and gotten a monitor (or use your tv) and then install steam and enjoy paying next to nothing for quality games. And for all the people thinking Sony isnt going to jump on board the used game thing your dead wrong because its the devs and pubs who want that and if sony doesnt follow suit all of those good games will be on xbox one.

This true, but at the same time, you still end up spending more money in a 8-10 year span upgrading your PC than going with a Console that will have games designed to use all the resources to make it look great and play great.

I think you are missing the 60-70 price range on games and the fact that you will now have to pay a fee on both consoles to play used games. Also paying subscription fees to use apps which are totally free everywhere else and also paying fees to use apps that you already pay for like hbogo and netflix.
You know what, I thought about this and the only way I would be willing to pay this is if it came with all the dlc and 1$+ items they sell within the games If that were the case and they did away with in game purchases I GUESS this might be okay
I really don't think this will be the final prices for games, I can see an increase but not to the extent that it's up 40 to 50 pounds more. We'll have to wait and see. I just can't see them doing well sale wise with prices way over the top. Many would stick with the current consoles and the Wii U.
Wow, I can't even take today's "LE/SE" games let alone a hundred for a regular version? Looks like Steam is going to get tons of new users.
Unless those consoles are 349.99-399.99 usd and the games are going to be cheaper than new release console titles now (64.79 usd with tax) there is no reason whatsoever to buy a console. This gen is garbage and when your talking about shelling out 500.00 plus just for the system alone nah im sorry, if this doesnt give people the incentive to jump to pc then theres no help for them at all. And from the looks of everything these consoles plus subscription fees new game prices and being closed off and having to pay for apps that are free everywhere else will almost exceed 1000.00 usd. Oh i forgot all those people who have a headset and especially those with 150.00 to 250.00 headsets yeah add a brand new headset to that list as your old one wont function on the new consoles. Its beyond a joke that people cant see what these companies are doing and either the people supporting it are children or dont pay their own bills, so what do they care. They are basically selling you a crap low end pc for the price of a pc that would crush these new consoles (600.00 usd) but hey do whatever you want to do.

But the console will last 10 years while your hardware will last 3-4 (thats if you want to play at medium settings or less)

I went through 2 ps3 slims (disc drive errors and hard drive errors) and 4 count them 4 xbox 360's (red ring and other issues) that was in a span of 3 years. They dont last just like most things you buy today are poorly made and break easily, consoles are just a hole in the ground that you keep throwing money in. And who in there right mind wants to play games at 720p 30fps? no one unless they dont know better which sony and micro have been keeping their customers in the dark and flat out lieing to them so they dont discover that. Not arguing with you at all and i understand where your coming from but this "next gen" is a major money grab and rip off and honestly they are robbing and lieing to the consumer. People pay more and get the lowest broken inferior version of a product and they are so uneducated they argue with you how a pos console is on par with a 3000.00 high end pc its unreal.
Microsoft and Sony dont realize that people spent more time on youtube and netflix not because thats what they wanted to do but because the games were horrible they run horrible there laggy and borderline unplayable. But as ive said if people want to pay 600 for a cable box or multimedia box more power to them.

I think your reply got cut off bro its only my post.
I have had each console from each generation, the only one I've had a problem with was the 360 which is also the only one I sold. I will more likely only buy the PS4, but to say the games are awful is rubbish. They have some great games and mostly the great ones are exclusives, some others may not like them but I loved Heavy Rain, Uncharted and looking forward to Beyond and Last of Us. All of the ones I played ran fantastic. Had no issues with them at all, and for what hardware is there, they do a great job of using it's resources and making them look the best that they can. Consoles can last longer than a PC, but yes PC's expensive ones are more powerful and have more options. But I wouldn't give up console gaming completely, nor do I believe games will be 90 pounds. We'll have to wait and see for sure.

What I meant to say was, 600 for a machine that will last 10 years isnt that bad. The consoles are also becoming some kind of mediacenter and do have benefits that pc's don't. (like couch gaming)
