Commentary on Rising Game Prices
8:13 AM | Tristan Kane | Comment on this story
Have you been sitting around wondering why you just donít seem to have enough money to buy games anymore? Well, Chris Morris may have just pinpointed the reason behind your dilemma. In an article posted on CNNMoney yesterday he commented on the sudden escalation of prices in the PC (as opposed to console) market. Here is an excerpt from the article:
Right now, the increases are contained to the sword and sorcery corner of the gaming world. Infogrames (IFGM: Research, Estimates) kicked the trend off, putting a retail price of $55 (roughly $5 more than the typical PC game) on the game "Neverwinter Nights." Blizzard Entertainment recently upped the ante, asking $60 for its wildly anticipated "Warcraft III."Beyond merely quoting the statistics of the price rise, the article also looks at the reasons behind it. These include the increasing quality and therefore cost of manufacturing games as well the expense of maintaining online multiplayer systems.
