I honestly am not too sure about that though. The development costs have gone up for sure, but the cost of manufacturing the goods (the cartridges/cases/manuals/disks) has all but vanished with everything going digital. Granted, it might only cost $1 or $2 for printing the games/manuals per unit after shipping them, but when you are talking 5 to 10 million copies being sold of a game across all platforms, that's 5 to 20 million in savings and easily offsets the added development costs.
