Why are Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands more expensive on PS4 than on Xbox One?

"PlayStation 4 owners have criticised developer Telltale and Sony for the pricing of Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands.

Both games, which went on sale this week, are more expensive on PS4 than on Xbox One.

The Game of Thrones: Season 1 Season Pass is £24.99 on PS4. It's £15.99 on Xbox One.

Confusingly for the customer, the season pass on Xbox One includes only episodes 2-6, but even if you add on the £3.99 price of the first episode on Xbox One, there's a £5 difference. It's worth noting that Episode 1 is £4.99 on PS4 - £1 more expensive than on Xbox One.

We've asked both Telltale and Sony for comment, and will update this article if they respond."

Well obviously it's because the PS4 version has a couple of extra pixels, stone me a Chelsea fan could work that out


As this is the internet I must say the above statement is not based on fact, it's pure sarcasm

Almost got me, until I read the second sentence :)

Agree for the pure cheeky humour there. Made me snigger a little!

Maybe because they will be free on PS+ by the end of next year? :D No idea... should be the same price for X1 / PS4 in my opinion. I wonder who made it more expensive. Sony or Telltale Games. If Sony does not set the price for digital games then they might want a bigger share of the sales then MS maybe which makes the title more expensive if Telltale Games want to make the same profit.
But everything is speculation until someone who really knows is willing to share the true information.

It's not just the difference between X1 and PS4, it's between PS3 and PS4 too that pisses me off. I do have both the X1 and PS4, plus a gaming PC, so I can pick the cheapest unless all my friends online are going to play a specific game, i.e. Destiny on PS4, on a specific console.

True! Should be cheaper to develop on X86 architecture...well at least compared to PS3.
