I disagree for two reasons:
1) Great new mainstream console games are released every day. Entertainment value is subjective, however considering the hours of entertainment that videogames have provided me I wouldn't call them overpriced.
2) Not sure why you think indie developers on a shoestring budget will be able to consistently crank out videogame hits with the same regularity as a major videogame corporation.
I think videogame corporations have done some pretty shitty things (including not paying their employees a fair wage) but they do know how to consistently crank out hits.
