Sony has revealed that full-priced first-party PlayStation 5 games will cost $70 at launch, seemingly pointing to a new higher price point on next-gen.
Revealed in a PS Blog post after September’s PS5 event, games like Demon’s Souls and Destruction All Stars will come in at a $70 price point, while Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will come in at $50 (or $70 for the Ultimate Edition) and Sackboy A Big Adventure will be $60.

Changing full-price price points have been a hot topic as next-gen approaches. Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick has previously defended the company’s decision to adopt a $70 price point, but Ubisoft is sticking to $60 for now.
We’ve previously written about why $70 games make sense for PS5 and Xbox Series X, but why the timing for that rise couldn’t be worse.
