THQ CEO Brian Farrell thinks $60 is just too expensive. Their upcoming game will be at a $40 price point with the goal of capturing more users and making money with the use of DLC. An interesting experiment!
“I know investors worry about price points,” he says. “When we think about this business, we wonder if we can turn it on its head a bit. How many users can we capture? … The real key is expanding in the installed base.”
