Well damn, I'm already buying older used games on PS3, all this price hike for me means is that I'm gonna have to wait longer to buy a game. These high prices are also going to encourage people to buy games used instead. If you wanna increase piracy, increase game prices. With everything going digital these companies already have a chance to make even more of a profit, just sell the games on PS Store, Xbox Live, and Nintendo Shop for less than the store price and make a higher profit. If they want increased game sales and decreased used game sales then they have to compete, and they can. Shit, I'd buy a digital game over a used game if I could spend like $5 (used) or $10 (new) less on it.
