Game pricing has changed significantly over the last console generation with the advent of alternative business models like F2P and App Store $0.99 games. Sony aims to embrace that flexibility while still making sure there’s a place for the $50 million blockbusters, according to SCEA CEO Jack Tretton.
“People are willing to pay if they see the value there and I think there’s more choice than ever before for consumers. We’re going to welcome free-to-play models, games from $0.99 up to those $60 games.”
“If you really see where the heat is for the true gamer it’s on the console and it’s still that big-form experience that typically runs upwards of $50 million to develop and we’ll justify that $60 price point and we’ll give people hours and hours of gameplay on a daily basis for months and years to come.”
