The price of videogames is of concern to practically every gamer on a tight budget so many of us are curious to know just how much software for next-gen consoles will cost.

During a recent interview with CNBC, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America Jack Tretton reassured PlayStation fans that PS4 games won’t cost more than their PS3 and PSN counterparts.

Tretton said the PS4 is designed with both the game developer and consumer in mind and will therefore offer games with prices ranging all the way from $0.99 to the more traditional $60 price point. Players will be able to sample games before paying for them, with Tretton believing that “people are willing to pay if they see the value there.”

Is $60 still too much for a AAA game or fair considering the higher development costs associated with creating software for next-gen platforms? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
