How Your $60 Video Game is Chopped Up

(click to enlarge)

Via the informative folks at FeedVibe, we had this rather illuminating chart that shows exactly how much of your money goes where when you plunk down $60 for a video game.

As digital distribution takes over, I expect to see the 20% handed to the retailer to shrink dramatically. But if you think that all of a sudden games will be 20% cheaper, you’re kidding yourself. More than likely either the console or the publisher will pocket the different and keep charging you the same.

For as much as people like to claim the $60 game is going away, I have my doubts this will ever come to pass.
