Sony prices first-party PlayStation 4 titles at $59.99

Sony's PlayStation 4 games will be sold for the same price as current-generation titles.

by

Sony has confirmed that the pricing for its first-party PlayStation 4 titles will be $59.99 in North America, the same price point as PlayStation 3-era titles.

Speaking to Shacknews, a Sony representative said, "We have announced the pricing for our first-party lineup of PS4 launch and launch window games. All four titles, Killzone: Shadow Fall, DriveClub, Knack, and inFamous: Second Son are all $59.99." Sony Computer Entertainment America CEO Jack Tretton previously said in February that PS4 titles would range from 99 cents to $60.

Microsoft recently confirmed that first-party Xbox One titles would also be sold for $59.99.

Third-party publishers--such as Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, and Activision--have yet to formally price their PlayStation 4 and Xbox One titles.

During its E3 2013 press conference last week, Sony confirmed that the PlayStation 4 would launch later in 2013 for $399/€399/£349. The Xbox One, meanwhile, will launch in November for $499/€499/£425.

Im going to be alot smarter this gen about games I purchase as to not waste my 60 bucks.Ive had toooo many games that ive paid full frice for yet have only played once. I finally decided today that the PS4 is the system im going with for now and maybe the only one this gen. I want to try to just stick with one console this gen. Alot of the games I want this gen are multi platform(Destiny,CoD,BF3,Thief,Creed,Wolfenstein)but the Sony titles are resonating with me a little more. Im really anxious for Killzone,Infamos,The Order,and anything from Naughty Dog, and Team Ico.On top of that some of the exclsivs MS fanboys are bragging abour I have no interest it. Ive been gaming mainly on my Xbox since 2005 but this gen Sony has grabbed my attention.

Just barely on the dot, no way in Hell I would ever pay $500 for the PS3.5 or $70 for it's games.

Well I doubt publishers will raise their prices when the console makers aren't, but with today's big publishers you never know.

Is that supposed to be good news. The industry can't stand another price increase.

Watch games get even shorter for that price, with plenty of DLC to make it worse.

I miss the Ps1/Saturn/N64 days when games cost an average of $39.99.

I have one question for the community.

Where are those shills that were screaming that PS4 game would be $100?

blackace

Well duh, that was a given. No one is going to charge more then $60 unless they want their game to fail miserably at retailers.

I was an MS Xbox fan, even sold my PS3 to stay only with Xbox; now MS with their recent dumb decisions, it's time to get back to my roots, Sony, here I come.

@hordaak I am not buying an Xbox One because of Microsoft's policies.  I'm buying a PS4 because I vastly prefer it's controller for fighting games.  You can't tell me the Xbox's controller is better for that purpose because I can guarantee you it is not.  That, and because I do, in fact, lend my games to my sister to enjoy.

The only reason you are buying an Xbox One is because you have an Xbox Live Gold account; an investment.  And something you pay for is not something you want wasted.

@hordaak The policies are a big part of the console. Want to rent a game on Xbox One? Too bad. As far as being a better system, the Xbox One has very similar hardware to the PS4 ( made by the same company AMD). The Xbox One may have more announced games until the console starts selling. The PS4 is already outpacing the X1 in pre-orders. Developers are going to make games for consoles on the market. If the PS4 sells twice as many units as the X1, do you think developers will not make the games multiplatform? Already happened with the Rayman Legends game that WAS going to be a Wii U exclusive. Also, if you like being told what you can play on your console now; wait until the following gen when even more rights will be stripped away.

@hordaak what your saying does not make any sense....and xb1 because it is a better system....they have the same/close architecture so im pretty sure both system is going to be good..features are not the same and xbox one is not a gaming console anymore, its a media console or what ever...

@hordaak Hmm, so *that's* why, the PS4's gfx card has more processors, and the system's OS will use half the ram then the XB1. Unless you was at E3, you have no idea if the controller is better or not, just like a parrot you're repeating what you read/heard. XB1 is nothing more then a DVR that happens to play halo. Don't feel sorry for me, I'll be kicking some n00b ass on planetside2 and dust514, while you're stuck on the battlefield/cod treadmill, good luck. By the way, i can't be a fan boy if I'm playing the 360 while typing this lol.

@Dumper1 That's why you play PC games with mods, because then you get a lot of good content for free and can choose how much game content you want. Companies can't compete with that variety and they shouldn't either, because some stuff made is just dumb or intentionally doesn't fit the game's setting/story.

@saosebastiao  If I remember correctly it was only first party PS1 games that were $39.99.  Third party games were $49.99.  So if you think about it's only a $10 increase for most first and third party games.  Still, I remember paying the almost 50 and wishing it was lower but now the almost 50 sounds pretty good to me, just a nice, almost even half of a Benjamin.  :)

@saosebastiao I miss the times when a movie ticket would cost the equivalent of 10 dollars. Now it's almost the double for 2D movies and more than the double for 3D movies. Games have only become cheaper for me, though, because of digitally distributed sales. Steam, GoG and even the Humble Weekly sale have great deals.

@12amHomicide People who are wrong on the internet never admit it, oddly similar to most companies and their executives.

X1 games cost the same 59.99 maybe if you didn't have your head up your ass you could see that.

@domig_xxx @ch7226 @hordaak  No not really, MS fucked everyone over, royally and PC gaming isn't worth the constant headache. By the way, is MS paying you to defend the XB1 til the death? If so, i would ask for a raise, shit's about to get ten feet deep on your end.
