PS4 first-party games to RRP at $59.99

Wednesday, 19th June 2013 00:17 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Sony has confirmed that first-party PlayStation 4 games will retail at $59.99, the same price as new PlayStation 3 releases.

“We have announced the pricing for our first party line up of PS4 launch and launch window games,” a Sony representative told ShackNews.

“All four titles, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Driveclub, Knack, and InFamous Second Son are all $59.99.”

Naturally this doesn’t confirm prices for third-party titles as publishers are free to aim higher if they choose, but it’s a good indication that Sony doesn’t expect them to do so.

Microsoft has also set a $59.99 price point for first-party Xbox One games.

The PlayStation 4 is expected to launch before the end of the year and although no further titles have been confirmed for the launch period there are a large number of cross-gen games slated for release from october through December and beyond.

Just as an aside, InFamous: Second Son is the only game on Sony’s list which will not be available on launch day; it’s expected in early 2014. Also, DriveClub will be free to all PlayStation Plus subscribers, and as you need a Plus subscription to play online on playStation 4, that’s probably going to be everybody.

Thanks, OPM.

    I had a good feeling Sony wouldn’t push the price up, and games would stay at 60, though I’ll admit I was worried for a little while there, so really glad it is confirmed.

    Drive Club will not be free for all PS+ subscribers. They will get a cut-down version of the game, which will be upgradable to the full retail version for an as yet undisclosed additional fee.

    @1 Yeah, Cliffy B didn’t seem to understand “What’s good for the goose…” so I’m not surprised in the least that Sony and MS will have similar pricing. Truth be told, I’m certain that a year or two into this generation, we’ll have parity again between the consoles (not just pricing) just like last gen.
