Question by : What is the point of pricing video games so expensively?
Why are video game companies like Nintendo,Microsoft and Sony pricing their console games @ ridiculous prices,doesn’t this lead to pirvacy and low console sales as well?(1 game costs an average of 40usd in my country btw)
And i get so pissed when i see people claiming that they are ”video-game experts” and they have a wide ”collection” of video games,seriously?! these money could be donated to the needy or spent in a more meaningful way right?
Answer by Jonathan
Video games are priced the way they are because 3 things need to be payed off: The production of the discs, the bills and loans of the development company, and the salaries of the dev team. This amounts to a ton of money, and most developers can’t afford to price their games lower.
People are proud of their video game collections because it is their hobby. Aren’t Art Collectors proud of their paintings? Aren’t Model airplane/train/boat builders proud of their constructions? It’s the same with games.
