"It's hard to believe that games cost $60 per title these days. We worry about the strain our hobby puts on our budget, and we fret about too many desirable games released too close to each other. We wish for the good old days, when gaming was a less expensive hobby and our dollar carried more weight. Sadly, although many complain about the high price of games, the past really wasn't any better. In fact, it was worse. Gaming has never been less expensive, and 2010 is a great time to be buying games. Let's take a look at how this is the best time to be a gamer since... well, the beginning of games. It's cheaper to be a gamer now than it has ever been." | more

What do you mean PC is cheap? If look at newer PC games like Starcraft 2, for example, it cost $60 still! Generally speaking, new console & pc games are OVERPRICED nowadays! Why's the game industry focusing more on Online Experience, instead of Single Player Campaign?!

60$ games 10 years ago would probably cost more today.
