Capcom considering next-gen pricing
Will Capcom also increase the price of their next-gen games? Maybe, maybe not – they are watching what everyone else is doing before making a decision.
Several other publishers have already said that they will increase game prices for the next generation consoles, and it’s looking likely that $70 will be the new recommended retail price for next-generation games. However, not everyone is convinced this is a good idea and that includes Capcom.
Keeping watch: “We do not have a set policy at this time. We will consider our approach having analyzed both our strengths and weaknesses while closely monitoring industry trends,” Capcom told their investors. Ubisoft is also keeping their games at $60 for the time being.
Trend or blip? 2K Games has already decided their games are worth a little extra, prompting other publishers to follow suit and announce price hikes.
