More indications of a new standard price for next-gen games.
We’re on the verge of another year, and there’s a lot to look forward to: the first full year of a new generation of consoles, hopefully COVID finally being brought until control, and the eighth mainline installment in the Resident Evil franchise, Village. The game will be coming to next generation consoles, and well, it looks like you will indeed be paying a bit more for it.
A listing for the PS5 version of the game recently went live on Play-Asia recently, and probably as you’d expect the asking price is $69.99 (the price may change to your region’s pricing scheme). The $10 USD price bump, and even more in other regions, has been something of a sour note for many as we head into this new gen.
It’s worth noting that for now we’re filing this under rumor since there’s been no official statement from Capcom, but it seems obvious at this point that the price hike will be the new standard, even though Capcom have publicly remained non-committal with their statements about the matter.
Interestingly, there is also a listing for a PS4 version of the game at $59.99, which you can see here. Capcom said they were looking into current gen versions for Village, but as of now nothing official has been announced so put this under double rumor.
Resident Evil Village will release in 2021 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC with PlayStation 4 And Xbox One versions currently being evaluated. You can check out some insights from the developer on the game as well as some new art through here.
