GS News - Epic: Next-gen dev costs to double
Chief technology officer at Gears of War studio Tim Sweeney says he anticipates cost of next-gen development to rise.
They always talk about rising costs every new generation, and I get it. It comes down to a basic balance though. Customers won't pay stupid prices, so developers need to make and get better more efficient development tools to lower their costs. Otherwise a bottle neck will take place. 59.99 is already a lot to me, if the price on games goes up again I'll have to find a new hobby.
