Hell yes. Here in Sweden -- as well as most, if not all other European countries -- that would make for a drop in price.

Games are already overpriced in my country cause of our high taxes, so no.

No. Inflation has already devalued my fucking dollar and I'm not about to pay $77 (tax) on a fucking five hour piece of shit game. If you want to see instances of copyright infringement skyrocket through the fucking roof, do exactly this.

No one will say yes to this. Of course we're not willing. However, if we're forced into a price increase like we were this gen, well, then we might just have to bite our tongues and give in.
 
Regardless, much like Abyssfull over here, it's very rare for me to pay full price for games anymore. Games drop in price faster than ever now, and I'm loving it. Also, I will not be tricked into buying special edition packages anymore.

Only a handful of games deserve full price purchases. With Steam around, which will give a 50% sale within 3 months, it's hard to justify purchasing games at full price anymore.

If they start increasing play-time maybe, but probably not, since current trends point towards shorter games with MOAR BIG BO0M!!!11!

Isn't US games 60 dollars, so how can 70 dollars be a drop in our countries? i live in Denmark, and games here and in Sweden are almost the same in price. If prices go up in the US, prices in EU will follow.

I have not payed full price for a game since I bought Fallout 3 over a year ago.  So, in a sense, no.  Most likely not.

Even if I was willing (which I'm not) I'd end up buying far fewer games because, not surprisingly, I wouldn't be able to afford it. I usually wait for games to go down in price unless it's something that I really want to play, like ME2.

Games that cost $60 is the States cost 700kr in Sweden. With today's exchange rates, 700kr is around $100, which means $70 would make for a $30 drop. Of course, an increase in price in the States would probably make for an equally large increase here, but the question wasn't "Would you pay x% extra for next-gen games?". It was "Would you pay $70 for next-gen games?".

PC games launch at $40 right now so.... no.  Also, Steam.
 
The last time I spent $60 on a game was for Street Fighter 4, and that was a collectors edition.

No. I rarely buy games at full price anyways. I wait for sales to happen. If the default price were to be increased, I'd buy less full-priced games.

I very rarely every buy new games as soon as they release. I'd probably just buy games when they begin to drop in price.

If I were to buy a new PS3 game now, it would run me about €45 to €50, which is around 70 bucks. So I already pay that much. If they were to raise the price across the board though, your 70 bucks would equate to around 80 for Europeans.

I didn't mean the US price compared to Danish, Norwegian or Swedish prices. I ment Swedish and Danish prices are almost the same when you convert the money to US dollars. 
 
500-550 Danish kr. would amount to 94-104 US dollars.

If game price's went even higher I'd probably drop from rarely buying games at release to never buying them at release. 
I like playing games but there is always something I haven't played yet going for a decent price that I rarely feel the need to get anything when it just came out.  
An extreme example would be the Smackdown wrestling games, over here in England I could pay £40 in November when it's released or I could wait until December during the run up to christmas and get it for £16.00. 
That won't happen with something like Modern Warfare for quite sometime but I wasn't getting it anyway. 
Even the GTA DLC disc was going half the price of getting the DLC online during December.
I guess any price increase isn't targeted at somebody like me anyway but there has to be a price that even the most committed gamers start to get second thoughts.

Depending on the quality of the software, I would either suck it up (though I'd buy far fewer titles), or I would stick to handhelds. I do not consider the latter too bad a fate, honestly. Handheld gaming is in a golden age right now.

I hardly ever buy games at full price now. It's usually only a couple of weeks before one or two shops drop the price significantly. Sometimes you can even find a good deal at launch if you shop around.

I am going to assume you want us to scale it to our own local currencies. Because $70 is a price drop for a brand new game in Australia. In principle I say no, but at the end of the day I know I would. It would only means I would probably be more careful about what I buy. Pick up less impulse purchases and bargain bin stuff to make sure AI could afford the games I really want when they comes out.

If I had to, yeah, but I'd probably end up buying even less new games than I do now (which is around, what, one maybe two games a year?).

Yes, currently I only buy games that I really really want. So I have no problem paying full price for games. Especially since the developers probably worked so hard on making it, gotta give them some respect.

I said maybe, because in all honesty there will always be those 2-3 game a year I will pay immediately for.  However, with most games I just wait until I find them for cheap at Blockbuster.  e.g. DMC 4, PoP, Bioshock, etc.

Some games I wouldn't have a single problem paying $70 for, like Fallout 3, without the DLC. Some games are worth more than they are sold for.

Pretty much none of my games would be purchased when they came out if that were the case. The only game this console generation that I payed the full $60 for was GTA4; all the rest I purchased either used, or when they were down in the $20-$25 range.

$70 is too much.  $60 is even too much.  $50 seems just right.  But I seriously hope that publishers don't try to increase the price of games with the next iteration of consoles.  If they do, then they really have no business complaining about the sale of used games.  
 
Hopefully we'll never see this scenario:
 
$70 a game or higher + all digital distribution = Nightmare
