He's absolutely right, game pricing needs to adapt. Games are priced like they are still an extremely niche market. Publishers have a tendency to overcharge and under deliver. Not all games are worth $50-60, in fact few are. There are a number of games I can recall skipping because of their price. I would look at them, be interested, but not be willing to risk $60. At $30, I would have picked them up. Game prices take far too long to drop these days too.

Games being overpriced and rarely worth the full price is why the second hand market is so strong. The game industry needs to start making more lower budget, lower priced games. If they make a pile of crap, throwing another couple million at it isn't going to make it a good game.

In the long run, I think the companies that do not heed this advice will end up extinct. Steam has already proven you can make a killing if you price more aggressively.
