Default Discussion: Are games getting too cheap?

September 4th, 2013, 15:03
Given how low the prices are these days, mostly due to competition, the relative cost of a game vs average salary is getting pretty crazy. Compared to income, games are probably 10-20 times cheaper than they were during the 90s.

I assume it's volume and the lack of physical copies that enables the gaming industry to still make money, but even the it must've taken some corporate stream lining to make a profit when games that take years to develop go on sale for about as much as a bottle of Coca Cola.
