$70+ for a PS3 game?

The publisher of leading Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has stated PS3 games will be priced between US$70 and US$80, a good 50% increase from current pricing. To be honest I think if this is even close to the final pricing structure Sony will be in for a very bleak few years.

I already find game prices fairly high and tend to wait for platinum releases or hunt out second hand copies for most titles outside my favorite series or developers. Reaction thus far seems to indicate that most other gamers feel the same way, and with x360 titles being significantly cheaper Sony could quickly lose much of its market share.
