Nintendo Revolution games set to retail at $60

Nintendo Revolution games set to retail at $60

"Video game retailer GameStop has listed several Nintendo Revolution software titles to its online store with a retail price of $59.99.

Games currently listed include Mario Revolution, Super Smash Bros. Revolution, Zelda Revolution, and Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles Revolution.

The $60 price tag follows the footsteps of rival Microsoft's Xbox 360 games, all of which have been set at $59.99.

Current video games retail for $39.99 - $49.99.

Nintendo has not confirmed the retail pricing of the Revolution or games, but the system is expected to cost less than Xbox 360 and Sony's Playstation 3.

The jump in video game prices are a result of high development costs for new video game hardware and software. Next-generation video game systems like Revolution, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3, will incorporte state-of-the-art processors and graphics chips to create stunning graphics.

Video game projects are now multi-million dollar investments that require scripts, storyboards, and music composition, similar to the Hollywood feature film.

While Nintendo could adopt lower pricing to Revolution games, it may want to stay at level competition with Sony and Microsoft in order to maintain a larger profit and not undervalue Revolution titles.

Nintendo is expected to reveal more about Revolution before the end of 2005."

Now what about PS3 being a Special Steak Dinner?
