Capcom President Claims Modern Games Are Too Cheap

Haruhiro Tsujimoto expects things to change

Last week, Tokyo hosted one of the biggest video game events in the world – the Tokyo Game Show. It is organized annually by the Computer Entertainment Supplier's Association or CESA. The current chairman of CESA is Haruhiro Tsujimoto, who’s also the president and COO of Capcom. During his exclusive interview with Nikkei, he lamented the increasing software development costs and claimed that the price for modern games is currently too low.

This is a hot topic for the whole video game industry. Video game prices have generally increased from $59.99 to $69.99 at the start of the current console generation.

The general sentiment is the same as Haruhiro Tsujimoto’s argument – video game prices have remained unchanged through years and years of inflation and currently do not represent the product's actual value.

It is unknown whether this will affect the price of Street Fighter 6 or any other Capcom game on various platforms.
