The Ugly Truth of Game Prices
"Logic should dictate the ugly truth to developers and publishers: Games are not worth $60 today."
If you missed Game-Wisdom live this week, here is the recording from the show. I’ve transformed it from a simple recap into an almost second Perceptive Podcast, with guests, discussions and more.
This week, Jamie Madigan joined us to talk about monetization and the psychological pulls of aesthetic items in games. And if you would like to come on live, we are looking for new special guests.

Nintendo, once commanders of the mobile market through the original Game Boy and now the 3DS is finally developing games for mobile devices, and the move comes not a moment too soon.
This week on the cast, I spoke with Peter Buje from Beta Dwarf about growing the Forced brand and developing and cultivating the community of Forced Showdown.
