What Is The Most You’d Pay For A Game?
It’s been an especially shit week for the Rand and we are now starting to feel the repercussions. In the past, gamers have rarely had to worry about the impact of the Rand value on the price of our goods, because by some mystical magic inflation never really seems to impact the prices of games year after year.
That’s all changing really quickly now, with the news of the PS4 receiving a price hike due to the weak Rand value. It won’t be long now before games themselves have their regular prices increased, and there doesn’t seem to be light at the end of the tunnel just yet.

So with that in mind, what is the most you’d be prepared to pay for a game? PS4 titles are already starting at R800 a pop, so how long before that becomes the norm and we’re forced to pay nearly a grand per game we buy? Is it something that will force you to wait for price cuts or second-hand copies or will you still be able to get those day-one editions?
Even PC gamers could chip in here, because even we are feeling the squeeze lately. And in this case, we don’t have second-hand sales to fall back on. Thankfully Steam Family Share seems to solve a few of these problems.
So sound off in the comments below and let us know if you would pay R800 for a console game. Or even more perhaps.
