What exactly is the pricing strategy of Bethesda?
Both are still rip off prices for digital version when you can get a hard copy for cheaper or around those prices
same price in ireland really... gamestop and xtravision both selling it for 69.99 here which is the digital price
Yeah digital prices are ridiculous. They really need to be cheaper
£34.99 on Steam. Probably ~£18 in the summer sale and <£10 around Christmas :) Not trying to be the PC snob, just interesting to compare the digital marketplaces. There is no good reason for Steam to be so much cheaper than PS/MS online stores really, Valve like money too...
pc hardware is around double the price of consoles console games cost around 30% more than pc No one is really saving all that much in the end...
For sure DJ, but Valve get no piece of that. Across all platforms the money is in the software and services. I have bought ~50 PC games this calendar year. I have bought... I don't think I have bought a single console game actually. Most of those purchases are driven by good prices.
should be noted this only really applies to the UK... same price in Euros
I updated the title to make this more apparent. Thanks.
We always get ripped off in the uk PS4 games in stores usually go for £54.99 which is $92.53 Online retailers quite often go for £40 but that is still $67.31
Nice avatar. . . Online prices make little sense for now.
Maybe they thought if you were stupid enough to buy an Xbox One, they'd get away with charging more, too. ...sorry. I await the impending flood of disagrees from overly sensitive fanboys. But in all seriousness, Bethesda/Microsoft dropped the ball. It'll most likely be addressed before the day is out. Sucks though. I agree with @MikeLarry. It's just easier to go with retail still.
Or in more realistic terms, it's probably an error. When the 2 consoles launched there was some minor outcry because EA's games cost about £8 more on the PS4 than the One, and EA blamed Sony for the difference. Then retracted the statement. Then matched the prices. Would sure be interesting if one of the platform holders slashed royalties in order to make sure all games are cheaper on their ecosystem.
53 dollars in US with ps plus lol
Yeah I thought about it but for me I'm just going to trade it in once I'm done with it so digital wasn't for me on this one.
I've never understood digital pricing in the slightest, other than "if we price too cheap, we piss off retailers", so sony or microsoft blame the publishers for setting the prices, and then publishers blame hefty server prices on each platform for hosting each game in the store... I went into Tesco and got it easy and cheaper.
But you have a box and a disc, so all the sophisticated spacemen and robots point at you and say nasty things (probably).
So glad i preordered a physical copy, the price difference between it and digital version is just insane. This is why microsofts initial digital plan backfired, because they havent shown to the consumer that they will price digital competitively.
They do offer deals all the time tho.. I recall tomb raider and cod being half off at one point..
I got mine for £39 at Amazon and got the soundtrack CD free as a bonus - the game is amazing so far - I was a bit worried about the enemy AI being not up to par, having watched a couple of videos, however i am playing on hard difficulty and have died numerous times. So far, the first chapter has given me more fun than the whole campaign of Killzone Shadowfall. At times, the game made me feel like Clint Eastwood at the end of Where Eagles Dare.
The Title should be Wolfenstein: The New Order priced higher On Xbox One Store Than on PSN For PS4
Just brought standard edition from ASDA's £39. Better than GAME whom start at £45 standard and £47 occupied edition Edit: looked on GAME's phone app this morning and their online price was £49.99!!!!
