Higher PS5 Game Prices are Fair, Says PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 01 December 2020 / 2,420 Views
Sony is one of many companies to raise the price of its games for the next-generation consoles from $60 to $70. This is the first time in 15 years the price of games has gone up.
PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan in an interview with The Telegraph was asked if charging $70 for the remake of Demon’s Souls is a fair price and he said "Yes, yes, I do."
"If you measure the hours of entertainment provided by a video game, such as Demon’s Souls compared to any other form of entertainment, I think that’s a very straightforward comparison to draw," Ryan continued.
Ryan was also about the report that Sony was thinking of raising the price even higher than $70 and he said it was false.
"I can say that that report that we were considering higher prices for first-party games is categorically false," he said.
