With Microsoft Points gone, digital purchases cheaper on Xbox Live than PSN in India

Microsoft recently abandoned its universal Microsoft Points system for Xbox Live in favour of local currencies and the result, at least for Indian Xbox Live users, is cheaper games.

There are certain publisher-specific trends visible – EA’s games are priced almost the same across both, 2K’s games tend to be cheaper on PSN, and Capcom’s games are way cheaper on Xbox Live, but by and large, we noticed games are a lot cheaper on Xbox 360. (PS3, Xbox 360)

"... at least for Indian Xbox Live users, is cheaper games."

In Europe & NA there are no mentionable differences, talk about attention grabbing headlines.

PSN prices are extortionate. We all know about EA games being £55 at launch but even still I would like to see the PSN move closer to XBL in terms of pricing.

What are you talking about? New releases are priced the same on both platforms and PS+ is cheaper than XBL while offering 5x the value

Sales and discounts vary of course but I've never seen that a game is significantly cheaper on XBL.

Not everyone on N4G lives in America dude. He is talking about the price structure in Europe.

Wow in India!! Really! Then sign me up! Oh wait Xbox One isn't launching in India.. Honestly this made news? I doubt more than 10000 people own a console in india..

Yeah, cause you need an Xbox one in order to purchase the cheaper content for the Xbox 360. :-/

You do realise there can be news aside from the New consoles? or has that just consumed ur life and are mentioning it in every post whether its about that or not... Sorry dude

The problem that X1 might not even launch in india until sometime in 2014, or even early 2015
Sitdown  +   603d ago
Guess you missed the fact that this is about current items and the 360.... so tgus has nothing to do with the Xbox one at this time.

Xbox ON DEMAND games have like 4-5 year old games selling for $50 new.

It's pathetic. I just go to GS and get them used for $10 instead.

You need to put in India otherwise the title is completely wrong.

I haven't been to India in so long so how big is the difference here. My brother recently went and said 1,000 was about 10p. I guess it is a lot for Indians.
