Wii U games got listed at the placeholder price of $99.99, so...non-issue?
Basically this. I think they do this so they don't have to raise prices. But I don't know if the industry can handle another generation of pushing $60 games and then $20-40 worth of must purchase DLC to stay current for multiplayer, to get the real ending of a game, ect....
As everyone else is saying those are just placeholders, it's much easier to refund people who order early rather than have to make them pay more later. I don't see games rising above $60, and if they do not for very long because lower sales will force them back down. $60 is already a lot compared to other media and I doubt people will stand for games being much higher, especially when some $15 downloadable games have just as much content as a full retail release. Prices should hopefully go down later down the road because since more and more people are buying games publishers can off set the loses from a lower price by having greater sales. Yes publishers could continue pricing at the same level but as the market grows the majority of new customers and semi-casual gamers(people who started out playing CoD and Gears) and they are less willing to pay a premium price than a die hard fan, thus pushing the new customers to black market deals(used games) and taking away any profits from the publisher.
