        all ps2 games on release were $60, with the exception of a few titles and the 2K sports series being $40

        lets not even mention cartridge games like SNES or N64 which could range anywhere to $50 to $80 in the fuckin 90s.

          I'm thankful the game was good but man, fuck, I'm glad we have semi-standardized pricing for AAA releases now. I won't pay it cause it all ends up on deep deep discount after a year anyway, but still.

          >Atari games cost $170 in today's money
          but you could have one person shit out an atari game in a weekend. People always ignore the fact that game development is not immune to automation. It cost more because it was harder to develop then, not just the software but the hardware as well. I used to work as a game artist back in 2000. The shit I had to do by extruding from basic geometric shapes and sculpting by hand placing vertices one by one and connecting them to make polygons spending hours if not days, Zbrushfags today can shit out in 15 minutes, and half of it is just setting up the scripts and environment. It's fucking ridculous. You know how I got textures for my models? I had to grab a fucking camera and go for a stroll preferably on a cloudy day because it diffuses the sunlight so I have to do less editing in photoshop to make it texture-friendly. These motherfuckers click a button and get a full 4k ready library with normal and speculars and all that good shit.
          in b4: "Which games did you work on, anon"
          I didn't. I was a freelance and worked on commission, I was paid per asset or series of assets and never got told what I was making them for.

          I never paid more than $49.99 for any new NES, SNES, or N64 game.

          Mail order overhead probably. Or maybe you got some kind of membership discount. Who knows Nintendo was more expensive. In US an N64 cartridge was $60 new. This was when PS1 and PC games were $50.

            I was a kid, scrapping my allowance together, my mom was poor and didn't know shit about it, I wasn't a member of anything, and I knew exactly what I needed to buy something. It was always $49.99 in any store I walked into.

            When I worked at my store it was the listed price. We didn't sell a single game over $49.99 unless it came with some kind of gimmicky peripheral like Steel Battalion or Hey You Pikachu.

      Games have become more popular every year so even with the same price profits have been increasing. And because with games, especially digital, you only need to produce the game once and then clone it to as many people as you need to.

    • 3 weeks ago

      Contrary to what devs tell people, the cost of production for games has decreased.
      The issue is that many AAA titles are paying huge sums to movie actors and marketing budgets. The actual games themselves haven't risen in cost that much.
      Publishers are just greedy asshats who want more profit for less risk, hence why them making mere millions is no longer adequate.

      Bad faith argument, have a nice day. Paying $60 ~ $30 for a complete game isn't the same as $60 + Tax + Day 1 DLC + $10 for 2 extra hours of content etc. that's practically required to enjoy the game etc.

      Games like Street fighter x Tekken and Final Fantasy 15 demolish this argument already. Also why do these people never mention the fact that digital and physical games can somehow be the same price and that doesn't raise any flags. I like how we pretend as if it's not assumed that games need either a patch or DLC to be equivalent to the way games used to release. You have to either be a blind gay, taking bribes, or a troll to still be using this tired and already disproved talking point.

      Computers and phones have gotten significantly cheaper. Houses have increased but that's largely due to external factors.
      Food has actually gotten cheaper. When you calculate cost of food, you have to look at raw ingredients, you can't look at branded goods and shit like that.
      A gallon of milk in 1950 was $1 - A gallon of milk in 2022 is $4. But $1 in 1950 is worth $12 if you account for inflation.
      An egg in 1950 was $60 cents - An egg in 2022 is $17 cents. Again, see above ^

      PS3 era a videogame was $60 for a base game $70 for the gold version (full game) - $70 for PS1 equivalent.
      PS4 era a videogame was $60 for a base game $70 for the deluxe (partially full game) $10 for season pass - $80 for PS1 equivalent.
      PS5 era a videogame is $70 for a base game $80 for the deluxe (partially full game) $10 for season pass + additional DLC - $90 for PS1 equivalent.

    Video game development has also been streamlined and basically removed the need for dealing with the logistics of manufacturing a physical product. Developing a game is vastly cheaper overall, especially when outsourcing code to India and China. The $10 raise in AAA games is actually just pure greed and the inflation argument is a smokescreen that works wonderfully on retards. It's not my fault that the game companies spend 70% of their budget on marketing.

    Don't believe these gaming industry shills that say games are inexpensive and they should be charging more.

    Games used to cost more money to produce and place in shelves with physical copies taking up space. This is no longer the case as almost everything is digital now. Packaging in physical copies of games now is pathetic to what it was back in the day when they put effort into them. Now? Here's a case bro with a digital code inside so you can download our game. Back then? Here's a box with a sleeve to protect your games with also check the instruction manuals and these sweet maps we made for you and also this cd of upcoming games. Going from cartridge to CD to digital saved consumers FUCK ALL in terms of costs. They pocketed it all.

    There are now more gamers playing video games than ever before. The market is huge! It is very easy to recoup costs and make serious bank now but a lot of the budget for these AAA games goes to marketing and not actually producing or paying the devs and artists. Think half the costs on marketing alone.

    Finally, publishers have found ways to make more money off of games with very little effort on their part through DLC, loot boxes, subscriptoins, and cosmetics. Why make an expansion to a game when you can slice it up into 8 different parts and sell them individually for 8 times as much money?

    Don't believe the lies that the industry is struggling because they're charging $50~$60 for a new game.

      because we're already completely fucked and there's nothing, fucking nothing that we can do about it
      another answer, is that the media has been relentlessly putting out articles for the passed year about how

        Well, to play the devil's advocate, the media will never fucking ever admit a recession especially when we are actually looking at a depression. Telling people they might lose their jobs mean they start stashing their money instead of spending it which means jobs start vanishing faster since nobody is buying, accelerating the damage.
        The problem is that inflation is spiking so fast even the densest normalfag is going to notice something is up, too bad they are too ingrained to listen to the newsman to realize they are lying before they are underwater.

      Because for countless poorfags, they can't do shit about it. Hell for many of them, it's the most money they've ever made if they've only had shitty entry level jobs their whole lives (Food service, call center, retail). It's just a shame that everything blew up in price, making those wage increases near meaningless.

    PS1 era a videogame was $50 for a full game.
    PS2 era a videogame was $60 for a full game.
    PS3 era a videogame was $60 for a base game $70 for the gold version (full game) - $70 for PS1 equivalent.
    PS4 era a videogame was $60 for a base game $70 for the deluxe (partially full game) $10 for season pass - $80 for PS1 equivalent.
    PS5 era a videogame is $70 for a base game $80 for the deluxe (partially full game) $10 for season pass + additional DLC - $90 for PS1 equivalent.

    The worth of games is just fucking made up by whatever they think they can get away with. Nothing ever shows this clearer than regional pricing that varies for the exact same god damn product. USD has caught up to GBP recently but even before then we're very used to paying the exact same dollar figure despite the stronger currency. Even now the new CoD cost both $70 and £70, It's just a convenient sales trick. Anyone who wants to preach about the absolute worth of games needs to hand me some hefty fucking change back before I take them seriously.

        MW2's menu system suffers from way more than every menu option taking up an inefficient amount of space. I expected a controller/touch priortized UI, but its just a broken labyrinth in so many regards. It's mind boggling how many steps it takes you to get to what you want, completely unintuitive on what that path to get there is and the UI CONSTANTLY rips control out from the users hands to bring them back to the main menu/lobby screen.

          Unironically blame corporations and indirectly capitalism. These big corps always hire random Indians and contractors to do their shit because it's cheaper and they don't have to legally give them health benefits and more pay compared to a permanent employee. Of course, no one is going to give a shit about quality if you are leaving in a few months for a quick paycheck. But get used to it because everyone is focused on race rather than the CEOs doing this shit.

    What they fail to mention is that wages haven't increased since 2000. Adjusted for inflation the average person makes half the money they used to make.
    No average person could afford 90+ dollar games.
    You know whose wages have increased? Game devs. They make more money than you. Even the biggest complainers like the Blizzard gays who shared their wages make more money than devs in 2000 and certaintly more money than (You).

    Bungie spent 2 years and god knows hiw much money doing quality control and testing to ensure halo 3 had a successful launch and refused to let it leave the doors without the game being ready.
    Modern game devs don't do this, they'll ship an unfinished game and claim it to be "live service" and include a 60gb day 1 patch to actually make the game able to run (but still riddled with problems)
    90% of modern devs aren't worth $60 let alone more than that, so I pirate games outside of a select few franchises I love

    Anyone who says that games are underpriced should be ignored, and fucking shamed. The sick thing is, even if they DID raise it to 90 dollars, the motherfuckers would still exploit us with cash shops, and microtransactions.
