The Next Gen Console: A Double-Edged Sword
There is much good to acknowledge with the release of a new console: better graphics, less software restrictions, better hardware, and having a flashy new toy. There are negative results that can’t be ignored at the same time.
For as much disappointment we experienced here at GameTaffy.com hearing news of the staggering price tag of the Sony PSP Vita, it looks like the disappointments continue with the announcements on next gen consoles.
Announcements have already been made on disc-free consoles, the inability to play used games, and the cost of the consoles alone. Now, word is coming out that development costs for next gen consoles is skyrocketing, due to the requirements and capabilities of the new machines. This will without a doubt put the cost of DLC and the Online Pass up, and has a good chance of putting media prices up as well. Hopefully consoles that abandon using discs and restrict used games will compensate in the price of a new game.
