“Videogames Can’t Afford To Cost This Much” by Chris Kohler

I’d add that unless you’re HARDCORE then there’s little reason to buy games on release day. Watch. Most of the games that are new today, like Silent Hill Downpour and maybe even Mass Effect 3, will be $20-$30 within six months for NEW copies. In the meantime you can play last year’s games that have settled into the $20 territory.

I can’t remember prices plummeting like that on anything.
