Microsoft have put to rest at least one fear; the price of the games for the Xbox One. The news is that they will be costing the same as Xbox 360 games. So if you’re in the US of A, that’s $60, over here in the UK, that would be £49.99, obviously once you factor in the exchange rate, tax, and lining other people’s pockets, the price difference between the UK and everywhere else makes sense.
Sony have also confirmed that their pricing models will remain the same. You can view our thoughts on the PS4 here.
It’s important to know that these prices are the RRP, and whilst I can’t speak for those in America, most retailers do not sell at the RRP. You can probably expect most games to hit the £39.99 mark in most supermarkets, specialist retailer GAME will likely sell at a slightly higher price point.
