    Considering that production costs for major AAA release titles have increased significantly over the past 25 years...  YET the retail price has remained the same for roughly 25 years (when it should be pushing $100, just to account for inflation).

    This is why DLC & micro-transactions appeared in order to supplement the production costs.  Therefore, the increase in price to $70 is something that is a long-time coming for major AAA releases... which the price point was the standard in the NES & SNES eras (falling down to $60 with the PS1 / N64 era onward).

    WITH THAT SAID, the ecosystem for console games are more diverse than ever with a lot of indie & smaller publishers offering games digitally at prices lower than typical retail releases, so you can still obtain games that can fit your wallet.  If you don't waiting a couple of months (or years) after a game release, you can typically find a discount for most games.

    As long as games are reasonably price without major annoyances, the community in general will roll with the punches on this.

    People care, hence there are many who opted to either scrapping for deals on the internet, or not buying the game instantly during release day, since the price will gone down after a few months.

    Besides, there's still lots of games that offers free next gen upgrades, where the price of last gen games is still not increased.

    A lot of people care quite a bit!

    However games have been $60 dollars for so long that people have forgotten that the natural inflation of prices is a natural result of a successful economy. Companies will either have to increase the prices of their games OR they will have to add more microtransaction and more aggressive advertisements within the game.

    I personally prefer the $10 price increase, but it's understandable to be upset ESPECIALLY when *certain* companies charge $70 dollars and then continue to have aggressive microtransaction campaigns within the game.

    I don't, because Steam usually puts stuff on sale eventually, so I don't mind waiting to buy.

    I'm more upset that they will continue to stick microtransactions into what is now $70 games.
