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.

Yeah, that's what the game industry was bleating in 2008, but actually nothing is recession-proof.

I'm sure the publishers will start charging 70 bucks for new "AAA" titles, and I'm sure the large masses will just gobble it all up, even if the games become 3 hours long. (after all, most of them already whine that they "don't have the time to finish games!", since apparently taking an extra week to finish something is utterly impossible)

I've paid 60 bucks for a few games that I knew would easily last me long enough to make it worth it: GTA, Skyrim, ME3. If the next Elder Scrolls game costs 70 bucks, I'd still buy it, but the list of games for which 70 bucks is an acceptable price range is REALLY fucking short.

I'll happily wait a few months for all the others to go on sale.
