Xbox One Games Will Cost $60

Looks like the prices of games won't be increasing with next-gen. (Xbox One)

NatureOfLogic  +   695d ago
$499 price for the most restrictive console ever, and $60 for games that you do not own. What a ripoff.

Are you saying if you buy an Xbox One game it's not yours?

Fucking stupid, lol
Qrphe  +   695d ago
It's really stupid, but MS is the mastermind behind this after all.
theBAWSE  +   695d ago
I had to laugh at the earlier article today statingq DRM is great for ms to win the new console generation because they may price games cheap like 29.99

plebs

why should i pay 60 to rent a game for mS now ?

Rent a game?

It's not yours to do with as you please after you're finished with it - depending on whether or not a publisher feels like letting you trade it in at an MS sponsored retailer. Want to sell your game on ebay to recoup some of the cost if you don't particularly like it? "Nope, sorry, screw you we're forcing you to keep that sucker unless you take our pitiably low trade in price that we get to set because we have a right to do that now, for some reason" - Random Game Publisher.

$60 to license the use of a game that I have to pay even more for if I want to play it online? No thanks.
loulou  +   695d ago
you can sell the games you pricks. just the purchaser will have to pay the unlock fee, and it will be unplayable on your hdd.

fanboys reaching now

But you were never going to buy one no matter what Microsoft did...
Transporter47  +   695d ago
Unless they took out their DRM and the used game fees would actually would of gotten one, as of now, im not.
mydyingparadiselost  +   695d ago
I would have if the restrictions had been let go.
dennett316  +   695d ago
I certainly wasn't, not after their focus for the next gen was made abundantly clear with the bundling of Kinect and the idiotically useless TV features.
The casual stripping of consumer rights and atrociously over the top DRM just dropped the cherry on the sundae for me. Console piracy was a thing, but it was a very minor thing...not like PC where it was all done via software crack, you had to physically mod the 360 by opening it and soldering a mod chip. What percentage of 360 owners would even consider doing that? 5%, maybe. Their restrictions are ludicrously over the top.
DigitalRaptor  +   695d ago
Oh, stop with this deflecting trite.

I would've bought a 360 before this new gen if MS actually cared about their consumers. The same would've been the case with Xbox One. I don't have to look far to find reasons to dislike Microsoft. MS treat their consumers like fools and criminals. Never has the seller had the mindset that buyers serve them rather the way it should be.

Listen to Jim Sterling's words of wisdom:

You guys are just as deflecting as your masters.

u know.. its not our fault that we dont like MS..

its theirs..
mochachino  +   695d ago
They should be cheaper to reflect the fact that often half of the game is inaccessible and requires that you pay MS additional money to use.

Depending on how many games you buy per year, a single game could really cost $120.

Even going by the consumer average 4 games a year, each One game with MP (all thus far) will cost $75 dollars when MS Gold Tax is applied.

From the looks Killer Instinct should cost $40
NegativeCreep427  +   695d ago
$40 would be a great price point for Killer Instince...
but only if it came with fries and a medium drink. Now that's what I call a KILLER COMBOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

LOL, hey, if you're on XBox you could always hope it'll come with free Pizza Hut!
thelaughingwiseman  +   695d ago
What happens if your Kinect breaks? How much will it cost to replace it. You know me, clumsy person
RandomDude655  +   695d ago
60 bucks for something I don't own....no thanks
dennett316  +   695d ago
Oooops, so much for the defenders talking about how big and cuddly Microsoft were going to drop their game prices down to Steam levels....now what?
Going to try and tell us that you're really looking forward to all those Kinect games? Pffft.
mydyingparadiselost  +   695d ago
This artcle is laughable and is making BIG assumptions, ignore it altogether.
Hayabusa 117  +   695d ago
Damn, the one hope I had for the Xbone has been flushed down the toilet...I liked the look Deadrising 3 as well. Shame.
dazzrazz  +   695d ago
Don't worry price will stay like that on games and xbl sub for probably 1-2 years, then they gonna jack it up justifying it has more apps and entertainment
ziggurcat  +   695d ago
they already confirmed that games weren't going up in price a few months ago, so this isn't that surprising.
American_Gamer  +   695d ago
Glad the prices aren't going up, no more Microsoft Points, and a ton of great and varied content releasing!
ShaunCameron  +   695d ago
Who knows how long it'll remain that way. I say this because virtually all the Wii U's most recent releases have been priced at $50.
