Current gen games are all priced at £50 RRP anyway but retailers sell them for less.
StanSmith  +   740d ago
It's not bad, because games retail for £49.99 rrp now. This means that once the supermarkets start competing with each other and other retailers, the prices will be the same we're currently paying now for 360/PS3 titles.

With the exception of EA of course, who have already said that their games will be £54.99 rrp. EA never changes! Hope they go bust this gen!

50£=75$ so it is a little expensieve
Septic  +   740d ago

"no its quid ask any uk person"

Well no. Depends on background and location. Being a middle class midlander I sort of slip in and out of the two

OT; Cool. I wonder if this will make EA drop their prices as Sony and Microsoft have said they will not up their price.

Quid is basically used as an "abbreviation". Quid slips of the tongue quicker than pound (perhaps varying on your accent to an extent).

OT: At least its only 1st parties. Doesnt mean I'm happy about it though...

To be honest if you walk into a retailer and see a title for £50 and then look at the PC version for £30 it doesn't look easy to justify the extra £20 :/

More like greed IMO.

Animal Mutha 76  +   740d ago
Yeah but I'm not going to pay that for them especially when you know there will be another 40 quids worth of dlc waiting for you as soon as you go online and update.

I never pay rrp for any game.

I hope 3rd party will follow. Looking at you, EA.

Have any of you see what EA charge on their Origin store for PC games?

Most new or pre released games are £40-45 digital downloads.

This is why I don't buy EA games anymore. I won't be getting Titanfall or Dragon Age 3. I've totally boycotted them.

It seems a few other publishers are following suit as well. Sega are charging £40 for Rome II and Company of Heroes 2.
PC retail games are actually cheaper than their digital counterparts.
So if any of you are wanting a digital age on consoles I'd be careful what you wish for :)

Titanfall is £54.99 which is the price for almost all PS4 and X1 games. Only the X1 first party games are £49.99. EA next gen games are no higher than the rest. EA games on Origin do vary. Titanfall on Origin is $59.99 which isn't too bad since it's the same price for a next gen console game. It'll drop in price faster for PCs.

PC users will be playing next gen titles on the same PC they currently own so why do they need a price increase? The community doesnt need to start from scratch again like Xbox1 and PS4.

So Rome 2 which will only release on PC can go for £29.99 but BF4 which will be on just about every home console needs to up the price to become profitable. Im sorry but I dont buy it...

"It'll drop in price faster for PCs."

If we're talking steam then yeh. But this is Origin where SimCity is still being sold for £44.99

In my country a game costs 100$ , any game any console, so i always import from the u.s or digital psn us.
Funantic1  +   740d ago
£54.99 is the price for all PS4 and most X1 games on Amazon. Like the article said only the X1 first party games like Dead Rising 3, Ryse, and Forza are £5 cheaper (£49.99). Most EA games are £54.99 which is the normal price for next gen. EA does have Need For Speed: Rivals for £43.99 on Amazon for both PS4 and X1.

PS4 games

Xbox One games

I was hoping that next-gen games would be priced the same as current gen games. Does this mean Special Editions and the like increase by £10+ as well?
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   740d ago
All I know is Sony confirmed they would remain the same pricing so that kinda sucks for you x1 users. I kinda feel bad that's alot to be paying
yourfather  +   740d ago
Huh?the RRP price for Xbox One is same as 360,so wtf you saying?
LAZL0-Panaflex  +   739d ago
U got disagrees...that's sad.
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   739d ago
Of course I got disagrees this community is a joke and has a 5 foot fan boy rod shoved up their bum

@xredemptionx The X1 and PS4 games are the same exact prices in America. You're misunderstanding something. This article states that first party X1 games are £49.99 on Amazon in the UK. But first party PS4 games are £54.99 on Amazon still. So that sucks for PS4 users in the UK. Compare the prices for yourself on the links below then dislike me to let me know I'm right or you provide a link to back up facts.

UK X1 game prices on Amazon

what happened to games will remain the same price to current gen. this will be another reason why some will not be so eager to go next gen .

edit: unless this is ploy to get people to go digital by increasing the price of hard copies

Clearly you don't understand what the real retail price is. The RRP for all games this gen has been £50 but no store actually sells them for that. The prices are remaining the same.
Mikelarry  +   739d ago
Actually the RRP for this gen was 39.99. so there is an increase of 9 pounds compared to this gen.

I hope so, I've seen stores charge £50 for WiiU games though
deep_fried_bum_cake  +   739d ago
It wasn't, it was definitely £49.99. Games were sold at a £40 price point but that wasn't the RRP.
Mikelarry  +   739d ago
done some more research and you are right.
yourfather  +   739d ago
Nope,the RRP was 49.99,it's same
The fact that even the article already said it

"Most Xbox 360 games already carry a £49.99 RRP, but are often discounted by retailers."
iconic56  +   739d ago
I think companies underestimate the "less is more" concept. If digital-only (no second hand sales) were sold at $40-$50 MSRP, their sales would sky rocket and so would profit.
