I don't think that's helped by Gamerpass in some respects as it's value is crazy.
Some interesting tweets from John Linneman at Digital Foundry on the subject of game pricing and the general discourse around it. Think it goes a lot further than simple revenue extraction and the profit motive, as the perception of overall value and the value (or lack of) placed on developer labour has gotten really fucked up in recent years.
Also the emergence of free to play games with paid add-ons. People see the game as a freebie and might spend small amounts here and there and thus further warps things.
