The economy is likely to get worse so counting on increased sales, particularly at increased prices is pretty laughable right now.

All throughout time, entertainment is the 1 thing that stays constant no matter the economy. The idea is people need to have fun no matter what. They need that escape.

That's true to a point, but that doesn't mean video game sales are immune. Most indicators from the last couple of years would say it's not. A price increase is just as likely to send people to more easily attainable entertainment methods as it is to get people to spend the extra cash on games, anyway. People will always spend money on entertainment, but they won't dump money into luxury entertainment like video games when they're on a tight budget.

I used to buy far more games during the Xbox/PS2 generation because they were 50 dollars.

I don't know that I bought far more games, personally, but I took a chance on a lot more games that I wasn't sure about. At $69, if they hit that mark, the odds of me buying anything that's not a sure bet while it's at or near that price are virtually zero.
