But you need to remember, cartridges were about 30% of the cost of a game back in the day. Discs these days are less than 1%
Yea, but if we're doing straight comparisons, budgets have also skyrocketed. Though at the same time games have become mass market so as long as gaming keep growing we more or less see a balance.
Though as far as I can tell, they're saying games cost the same as last gen? Or is the Pound price point actually higher (not familiar with current gen pricing other than USD).
