Following the announcement of a new game console, it is customary to spread to worry about not only the price that the manufacturer will establish for the hardware but also the software, ie the games. Along with the release date, these are the most important information for both the buyer and must be chosen carefully when launching the new system.
How much will it cost PlayStation 4? Sony has not issued any information about it, and some unofficial sources have made speculations and assumptions.
The CEO Jack Tretton, however intervened to make statements on the price of the securities to PS4. Man Sony has first clarified that the next platform will be considered all modes of commercialization, free-to-play, microtransaction games to disk normally sells.
Also according to what was said by Jack Tretton, during an interview with CNBC: buy a title for the next-gen console will not cost more than it costs today. Indeed, it is expected to fall to the upper limit of the standard editions, which currently reaches $ 69 or 69 € in the old continent and then the players will have to pay 0.99 to $ 60 for the purchase of a security.
Reassurance for players coming from the software house Naughty Dog, already working on successful brands such as Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter but especially on the Uncharted series. The team explains that create games with superior graphics quality does not necessarily translate into a greater commitment in terms of time required for development. Of the same opinion Guerrilla Games, 2013 Meeting and during the event was staged in the night between Wednesday and Thursday showed the first demo shooter Killzone Shadow Fall.
Good news then, that is in addition to that on an intention not to block the execution of used games, but also the inability to perform the PSN already purchased PS4. It should also be pointed out that to keep spending for the final user could affect the distribution method: the next home console Sony will focus on the technology of cloud gaming in fact made available by Gaikai, thus making de facto optional printing and marketing of physical media.
Concerning the phenomenon of games on mobile and the risk that they may toglere market to consoles, Jack Tretton does not expect that the titles for the mobile take over sales of PS4 as they currently represent “additional experience” that the “real” player wants always play the most powerful device for deeper and richer gaming experience.
Indeed, the reasoning of Tretton has concrete foundations, and demonstrates knowledge of the profile of the player he calls “real” because it is always the most comprehensive search experience that is able to make his mark in his memoirs.
