SEGA might be next in line to increase its game prices

With the launch of this latest generation of consoles, we have seen a wide reaching number of publishers increase the price of their current-gen titles to $70 – with them citing various reasons for its necessity. It seems as though SEGA might be the next publisher to embrace the $70 game, with them set to review their prices in the not-too-distant-future.

As part of SEGA Sammy’s fiscal earnings report, the CEO (Haruki Satomi) and CFO (Koichi Fukazawa) were asked about the ongoing trend of increasing game prices from the previous standard of $60 to a new AAA minimum of $70.

As reported by VGC, in response the executives said “In the global marketplace, AAA game titles for console have been sold at $59.99 for many years, but titles sold at $69.99 have appeared in the last year.”

They continued, “We would like to review the prices of titles that we believe are commensurate with price increases, while also keeping an eye on market conditions.”

If SEGA were to increase its AAA games to $70 it would be interesting to see which titles end up being boosted to this premium tier: Sonic the Hedgehog? Like a Dragon? Persona? We will have to wait and see.
