Submission + - Indie Games Should Be More Expensive (

spidweb writes: "The Indie gaming blog The Bottom Feeder has an article on why Indie Games should be more expensive. The enforced low prices on XBox Live, Amazon, and iTunes might feel good now, but they'll kill off the variety and depth gamers are hoping Indie developers can provide. From the article, "Every year, life is getting more and more expensive. Insurance. Rent. Food. And, at the same time, games are getting cheaper and cheaper, sometimes as cheap as a dollar, as we engage in a full speed race to the bottom. This is not going to help developers stay in business. This is not how a healthy industry is maintained."
