Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick has revealed he thinks gamers are "ready" for $70/£65 video games. Talking at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference this week and transcribed by our friends at VGC , Zelnick was asked to expand on why the publisher had decided to add $10 to the price of NBA 2K21. The first publisher to confirm a price hike for next-gen video games, Zelnick said the decision came because the game offered "an array of extraordinary experiences" and the last frontline price increase in the US was fifteen years ago. "We announced a $70 price point for NBA 2K21, our view was that we're offering an array of extraordinary experiences, lots of replayability, and the last time there was a frontline price increase in the US was 2005, 2006, so we think consumers were ready for it," Zelnick said. Of course, there were considerably fewer microtransactions and DLC in mainstream games back then and interestingly, he could not be drawn on future pricing of … [Read more...] about Take-Two’s CEO reckons we’re “ready” for $70 video games

Players who haven't yet experienced the rebooted Tomb Raider trilogy will apparently be getting a new option very soon. Listed before being taken offline, the Tomb Raider Definitive Survivor Trilogy will bundle all three games together in one package. According to the Microsoft Store listing , which now gives you an error message, the bundle will be out on March 18. It contains Tomb Raider , Rise of the Tomb Raider , and Shadow of the Tomb Raider . All three games are also already available on PS4 and PC, though Rise of the Tomb Raider was initially not released on PlayStation, with Microsoft publishing the game and holding console exclusivity for nearly a year. The new Tomb Raider games essentially gave the series a clean slate, reimagining Lara Croft as a young archaeologist who gradually turns into a hardened survivalist--and killer--after an accident leaves her crew stranded on a remote island. These themes continue in the next two games, and it's unclear if this … [Read more...] about Tomb Raider: Definitive Survivor Trilogy Spotted For Xbox
Grand Theft Auto 5 released more than seven years ago, but it has remained one of the most popular games around for the entirety of that period. A big part of that longevity comes from GTA Online, its multiplayer component that has been consistently updated with new content. With new consoles available, you might be wondering if the game is coming to those systems. Will GTA Online come to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, and if so, when can we expect to play the game? Will GTA Online Come To PS5 And Xbox Series X|S? Yes, GTA Online is planned for release PS5 and Xbox Series X|S . It won't be a simple port that just increased the resolution, either, with plans for content that you'll only get on these versions and PC. On PlayStation, you'll get some exclusive content, as well, and those who play the game on PS4 are getting $1 million in GTA cash every month they log in until the new version is out. There's no sign yet that the game will support cross-play with the previous generation … [Read more...] about Will GTA Online Come To PS5 And Xbox Series X?
More than 5,000 Final Fantasy 14 players likely woke up a few days ago to find their accounts had been banned. According to the development team, these players were engaged in real-money trading and advertisements, which could have ruined the game's balance. In a post on the game's official website , Square Enix said that 5,037 accounts were banned for participation in real-money trading and "other illicit activities," while another 814 were banned for advertising real-money trading. Players can submit a cheating report within the game client to help curb the problem, and they can also report advertisements to stop others from offering these services in the game. It probably won't completely eliminate the problem, but it should help reduce its prevalence. Things like selling power-leveling services and other gear you don't want for real money in MMO games is not new, but it's certainly still frustrating to see other players literally pay to win with the best gear that they … [Read more...] about More Than 5,000 Final Fantasy 14 Accounts Banned For Real-Money Trading
