After it was announced that first-party games on the Xbox One would be retailing at $59.99, the same price that Xbox 360 games do now, everyone waited to see what Sony would do. It has now been officially confirmed by Sony that first-party games for its upcoming PlayStation 4 system will also retail at $59.99 meaning that there will not be a price rise from the current cost of games on the PlayStation 3.
A representative for Sony told ShackNews when contacted about the price point for PS4 games:
“We have announced the pricing for our first party line up of PS4 launch and launch window games. All four titles, Killzone: Shadow Fall, DriveClub, Knack, and inFamous Second Son are all $59.99.”
This is good news although it is definitely worth noting that this isn’t the confirmation of prices for third-party games but you would like to think that if Sony isn’t going to above $59.99 then neither will other publishers. The PlayStation 4 is expected to launch before then end of the year along with the Xbox One.
