Yea the prices of games have decreased from the old days but you have to realise that the volume of games that gets sold has increased too. so they make alot more than they used too, and not every game is worth brand new sticker price.

But the cost of developing games has increased tremendously. The development cost for several dozen PS1 games probably adds up to what it cost to develop Half-life 2.

I wish games over here were $49.99US

A new Xbox360 game in Australia is $120AUD or around $92US... Thats $92US for every new release game. PC games, while cheaper at $89AUD still equal $67UD.

However with Steam and Direct2Drive becoming a popular option with Aussie gamers, I don't think it will be to long before retail prices fall to match US prices. At least, I hope so.

Wii games will cost $49.99 when Wii launch later this year, $10 less than both XBox 360 and also PS3's $59.99 games pricetag. But still $10 more expensive than Gamecube games titles for $39.99.[/url].
I don't remember reading any announcements by Sony on PS3 gaming prices.

I would say the game prices were reasonable.
Plus there are some bargains to be had, Play-Asia anyone?
Works out cheap cheap for region free games shipped to the UK due to conversion rates and low postage costs.

Play.com do pretty much all new games for 40 inc VAT and delivery, which is 10 cheaper than the shops.

Bit of a bump and off topic, but has anyone used play-asia? I found even with postage games are roughly 50% than in store here. I'm even gonna try import Dark Sector, which was banned here.

don't import dark sector. it's crap. and play-asia is slightly overpriced. i ordered couple of movies there but that's all. they're pretty good but still, a bit overpriced.
