Expensive Games

Are you really into those online games? How about games that are both pretty AND fun to play? Well, combine all of that, and it makes the games incredibly expensive to make. David Jones of Realtime Worlds estimates that a good game now takes $50 million to complete. That is a lot of money, almost equal to that of some Hollywood films, and the impending Grand Theft Auto IV is predicted to bring in $350 million opening week. That is a good sign that we will start seeing more games that are of high quality if investors see the possibility of big payoffs in the end.
