Hopeful Xbox One buyers in the UK have gotten a bit of a shock today over news that Xbox One games will cost £50 when they’re released.
The information is no rumour as Microsoft’s very own online store is reporting the Xbox One games’ pricing. They have several games all listed for the £49.99 RRP, including Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome and finally, Kinect Sports Rivals.
Not only this, but news has recently been revealed that Xbox One games in places like France, and other regions of Europe are going to set Xbox One players back by a whopping €69.99 which converts to a few pennies more than £60 or just over $90. Not only this but it’s also a stark contrast to the pricing of PS4 games too.
Some have pointed out that as this is just the RRP, the prices may very well come down once these Xbox One games hit store shelves but if Microsoft want to justify next-gen gaming to the masses, the final pricing can’t hover so high over the £40 costing that we’re used to.
Think the price for Xbox One games is too high? Or do you think it will be worth it? – Leave a comment.
