Now that Sony announced the price and launch dates for the PlayStation 5, other information is rounding into shape. It has revealed the day one lineup of Sony Interactive Entertainment games, including free pack-in title Astro’s Playroom.
Other than the Ultimate Edition of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sony will release Demon’s Souls and Destruction All Stars for $69.99 in the US (¥7,900/€79.99 elsewhere), which is $10 more than the usual top price from previous generations. In the blog post, SIE CEO Jim Ryan explains that “Our own Worldwide Studios titles will be priced from US$49.99 to US$69.99 (RRP) on PS5.”
Our first hint of the new normal for pricing came with the reveal of NBA 2K21 for next-gen consoles which also featured a $70 price, so it will be interesting to see who follows by charging a little extra for the upgraded experiences.
