Why NBA 2K21's $70 Price Tag Likely Will Not be"Justified"

 x 0 
After enthusiasts raised concerns regarding what this cost means for games, and even next-gen video games generally, Zelnick was given the chance to explain this impactful decision and help millions of players make peace. Instead, Zelnick provided something...a little less reassuring.

"There has not been a price increase for frontline titles to get a very long time, despite the fact that it costs a excellent deal more to create those titles," Zelnick said of NBA 2K21's increased cost 2K21 MT. "And we think together with the value we offer customers...and the type of experience you can only have on these next-generation consoles, that the cost is justified. Nonetheless, it's easy to say that if you're providing outstanding quality, and that's exactly what our company prides itself on doing"

With respect to Strauss Zelnick, Take-Two's workers, along with the NBA 2K21 team, we're not sure that statement justifies NBA 2K21's next-gen price. In fact, there are matters about the selection of words which are concerning of Zelnick. To be clear, this is not an argument against whether there should eventually be $70 games. While I tend to side with PlayStation executive Shawn Layden who said that the ideal method to fight game costs may be to concentrate more the truth is that games are eventually going to be more expensive to purchase.

This isn't an indictment of NBA 2K21 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Collection X. While NBA 2K21 was a small mixed bag at the heads of many fans, it's completely possible that NBA 2K21 will help to turn things around. The actual problem here is using the concept that Take-Two and NBA 2K21 developer Visual Concepts have seemingly figured out something. That is what Zelnick seems to suggest by saying that"it's easy to say that if you're providing extraordinary quality"

And it is certainly what he seems to be suggesting when he needed to say about Ubisoft's choice to not raise AAA game prices at the start of the following video game generation:"Obviously, we do not talk for the industry and the business naturally doesn't match on those matters, to say the very least. The pricing must reflect the quality of the expertise, and we plan to give the very best experiences in the business." The issue with that statement has nothing to do that Take-Two's studios do not know how to craft quality encounters. They do. The problem is that the idea that"the sector naturally doesn't coordinate on those matters" is NBA2king, even in the case of the upcoming video game generation, not necessarily correct.
