From Game Geek news

At the CESA Developers Confrence Hirokazu Hamamura, president of Enterbrain (publisher of Famitsu) talked about the price range of upcoming PS3 software. Much like Xbox and Xbox 360, he sees a significant price increase between PS2 and PS3. Hamamura-san forsees the cheapest PS3 software being at least $70 USD (EUR 57 / YEN 7,800) while the most expensive would be around $79 USD (EUR 65 / YEN 8,800). That will leave Canadian gamers paying $83-$94.

Perhaps Kutaragi was right and we should all just suck it up and get second jobs.

Props: Yasokiri (in Japan)

Update: This page is getting tons of hits right now, which is awesome. Thanks everyone! And by all means, please check out the rest of the site while you're here. But to help my piddly server cope with traffic I've temporarily turned this page into static html which has crippled it's "comments" and "recent headlines" functionality. I hope you can live without those.

Yeah that sucks. Prices will be down to $49 level probably after the 1st year. But man I'll only be able to afford 1 or 2 games a year.
