Miles Morales here in the german store is 59.99€ for base game, 79.99€ with the remaster of the first game. That is with current exchange rate 71.03$ and 94.71$. For a fucking standalone dlc.

The Lost Legacy had the decency to be a meaty standalone game priced 40€.

I bought Demon's Souls and will pick up CoD this week as well, at least for $100 I'm getting nice meaty packages with those games, the SM:MM value is a joke and a half imo, and I was in love with the first game. I watched some videos this week to try and get hyped for buying it, but I didn't see anything new or exciting. I want to see the graphics, but not for $75 Canadian. This game will drop in price in no time at all.

Good, now do the decent thing and murder the PS4 version of Horizon II and keep GOW Ragnarok a Next Gen Title.

Give the PS4 userbase a port of Returnal or something to keep them busy whilst they wait for stock.

If I had to guess, I would say that most of Sony's first party games will not be PS5 exclusive for the next 2 years. They already said they plan to support the PS4 for 3 more years and if they did not do that they would miss out on so much money because the install base of the PS4 is massive compared to what the PS5 will be, even after 2 years.

I can see slightly smaller titles like R&C being PS5 exclusive but not God of war or Horizon because sony knows they would miss out on too much money. Also the fact that we are getting the new God of war so soon tells me that will be cross gen.

They already gave you the estimated release timetable. You can go check instead of guessing.

How many units in total were sold? This would be much more interesting.
That and how many people are going to be sitting looking at their disc while they wait for a PS5.

Both would be interesting numbers to see.

The thirst.

I wonder what Sony's internal expectations regarding crossgen games is...

Like are they predicting a 1:1 split or what.
Or how many people bought it thinking they could throw it in a PS4 since it’s Bc and they are going to get a PS5 eventually.

Never underestimate the stupidity of a consumer.

my brother bought Miles on Friday and beat it Sunday. He said it was like 5 hours long. I'm glad I only paid for half of the PS4 version.

That’s not great news, fraction of ps5s out there. Guess not much thirst for a spin off?

I don't get it. The game simply isn't $80.

How are you not understanding what I wrote....

I said "...don't feel good about buying a ~$80 expansion"

Was called a liar.

Replied "The base version is $64.99 Canadian. This ends up costing me about $75 after taxes. Which is ~$80."

Take your time.

This is despite PS5 not launching here until this Thursday.

This bodes well for a quick transition into the new generation, people might remember that it didn't take long last time around for PS3 / 360 software sales to plummet.

People talk of leaving behind 100m consumers but let's be honest, there are only a few million hardcore gamers and once they migrate of your system, software sales are going to collapse.

Added:


I don't think the transition will be that quick. There is a worldwide economic recession and a lot of instability. I expect PS4 and XBOX ONE consoles to still be relevant for a few more years longer than what we're used to.

Oh hecks nah! You're Canadian?! LOL! Man please, I'm not apologizing for that. I was talking about in the United States. Don't blame us for your higher taxes. 🤓
Where I live the base Spiderman Remastered game cost $54.25 with tax.
And who includes tax when talking about game prices?

Should I call you a liar because the game doesn't cost me $54.25?
Not everyone lives where you live. My statement that the game costs me~$80 remains as true now as it was then. All you had to do was say whoops, my bad, but this is pathetic lol.

I do hope you are right, but I'm not so sure this really tells us much as of now. We're really close to Xmas (when people are more likely to wait for a present), there's no urgency needed to get PS4 games for Xmas (talking parent purchases here), and the enthusiasts who would actually be playing it are most likely looking for PS5 versions anyway. Again, I do hope you're right though.

For Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed the numbers were really lopsided in the PS4 direction with more than twice as many sales.

Miles not fitting the pattern could be for a variety of reasons, but it's clear that the last generation is far from over.

It is.

But it looks like in Canada, all game prices are higher than in America.

Because those two games were advertised as PS4\XBO games first and foremost. Miles was pushed as a next-gen game.
