I only buy a select few games at regular price anyway. I wait for sales most of the time and now with how plus works with a huge selection I’m just fine with it. Hell I paid $60 for my SNES games back in the day!

Cool, it's not like you're locked into the Steam, Epic Game Store or GoG eco system and that you can put those Xbox-1 disc in a PS4 and can play those games on Nintendo or some shit. Oh wait, YOU CAN'T! The console itself is a form of DRM regardless of what
Oh so you're saying that on PC I can choose from multiple competing storefronts that constantly run sales or grab a CD key for dirt cheap from dozens of websites? And that GOG is completely DRM free? Yeah, PC is just like PlayStation, Nintendo or Xbox.

So let me get this straight.

1. Biggest launch title (Spider-Man) is also coming to PS4 (talk about believing in generations right SONY?).
2. FFXVI and Demons Soul’s coming to PC.
3. Launch lineup is laughably horrible.
4. Games are $69.99
5. Show a teaser for GOW showing only the games title and stating is releasing in 2021 when most of us know it will be a 2022 title.
6. Oh and Horizon 2 is also releasing on PS4.

Nice conferene.

Everyone twerking for Sony when they said 399 for thee DE, only to realise that Sony about to dry cornhole their arses hard.
For people savvy with money, yes.

But look what happened with Nintendo Switch. Sold for a good price and get nailed with $100 CDN joycons. Bit on the back end.

I wouldn't be surprised if most people only looked at system price and didn't give a shit what games, accessories and console online fees cost. They'll cross that bridge later.

It's actually cheaper to go digital if that's the shop and online price. Buy £70 worth of points for £60 from places like shop to, cd keys.
No, its actually cheaper to go physical, see if you like the game or not, and then decide to sell it used or keep it.

Mmno I don’t think I will. Really torn right now between getting series s (I’m eventually gonna have to get one for Halo) or ps5 DE at launch. But this pricing situation for the games is not ideal. Why are people acting like they can get the games cheaper on disc? Do you mean if you wait till there are used copies or something?

I don't feel like this is ONLY a Sony thing, haven't there been rumors of other publishers pushing prices to $69.99?

Of course it doesn't affect me since ALL XGS games come Day 1 at the price of $0 since I have Game Pass,

*laughs in pc master race *

Holy shit next gen will fast become more expensive than a PC system. U expect Microsoft to follow suit since they have the same insane pricing on steam.
