Standard AAA titles cost around $60 which is 6,000+PKR while the pocket money of a average gamer is around $2-3/day but this situation is changing as the more steam store games are being localized and people are now starting to buy most of the games they play.
Now days building a PC has become more difficult because of the rising price of the components. An 8GB DDR4 memory stick used to cost around $80-85 (8,500+PKR) but talking about today it costs around $120+ (12,500+PKR). All thanks to the increase in price of Dollar the prices on all the stock has increased.
If a pirate wants to play games on Console then they had to wait for year so the platform gets jailbreak. Same as PC a Standard AAA title cost around $60 (6,000+PKR) or more which is not affordable for most of the Gamers.
