Rumors of a higher price appear to be inaccurate

Sony seems to believe that the pricing for Triple-A titles on the upcoming PlayStation 4 will stay at $60 at release, which has been the standard day one price for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 titles. While some have suggested that $70 will be the new price point for new PS4 title, that isn’t something that Sony is willing to confirm as correct, at least not yet.

The reason for all of the talk about a price increase from $60 to $70 is simply the cost that it takes to make the latest games and the fact that publishers have raised the bar $10 with each new console introduction; however, it is difficult to see how the market will absorb a price increase of $10 this time around.
