When you consider that some NES and SNES games sold for $80, which is the equivalent of ~$110-$130 now, yeah, AAA games have actually become a real value.

Those games were $110-130 up in Canada and pretty much everywhere else outside of the US when they were released. Digital distribution did cut around 25% of the costs out of release prices. I77 for example was $92.99. IWAR(Independence War) was 99.99 when it was released up here. Figuring in inflation that would put them in the $145 range pretty quickly.

But let's keep something in mind with this article: The guy is an investor, and he's working from the premise for the company he's working for to try and make EA charge more for the investors represent. Never mind that EA has an excellent market cap and payout.
