It back in 2015 I had a rant about the prices of games to up to $80.00 (Canadian).  With tax were I live it comes to about $92.00.  That is a lot of money.  So I would only buy a new game may be twice a year and then wait for deals on other I want.   Well the prices are gong up yet again for the new generation.  Was looking a the Best Buy flyer.  The one that was out showing of the launch of of the new PlayStation and Xbox.  Was shocked to see some of the prices. The PS5 and Xbox Series X games are going for $90.00.  Holy shit that is way too much.  Was planning on getting a PS5 in the summer some time.  But think now I will wait for a big price drop.  In Canada the Disc version of the PS5 it $650.00.  So at that with one new games and tax it comes to about $851.00.  Think I will be sticking with what I have for now.

Fallout_4.jpgWant to talk about the price of videos games on how they are way too much now.  I know every time a new generation of game consoles comes out they price goes a bit.  Because they are new and the last gen games are still being made.  Then after a while the price will go down.  So far that has not happened.  Remember buying lots of game for my PS3 an they cost $60.  Then when the when I buy my PlayStation 4 they still cost about $60.  Then the price when up.  I was kind of fine with at.  Next the games went up to $70 plus tax.  Back in February (2015) bought the PS4 version GTA V with was $70.  With tax it came to 80.49.  A few days ago picked up Fallout 4.  That game any pretty much all the new games cost $80.  So with tax it cost me just about $92.00.  Which is insane.  I know some people will wait for a price drop.  However I feel like why should someone who wants a new game that just came out wait six months to a year to buy the game they are looking forward to playing.  I know for one think I will be buy less games if this price point keeps up.
