Consoles need to do this with digital pricing.

Fishy Fingers303d ago

Console digital pricing is an absolute joke. Even during the so called 'sales' the digital versions often cost more than you can get a physical copy for.

Do you think it's because people prefer digital over physical?

Fishy Fingers303d ago (Edited 303d ago )

Physical is still more popular than digital.

I think it's simply an easy way to maximise profit by taking advantage of people who either need it 'now', can't make it to a shop for whatever reason or the people who don't know better or just don't care.

They may even have some agreement in place with retailers. Who knows.

Yeah it's basic economics (as much as that sucks). You're paying for the convenience of getting the product immediately without having to get off the couch. Same reason on demand rentals are more than Redbox.

Probably some corporate greed sprinkled in there too :P

Until console companies don't have to rely on brick and mortar stores, digital prices for console games will always be higher.

Lol I love amazon especially with prime. I know some people like going into stores, but I personally hate dealing with crowds. I am surprised they haven't put some companies out of business yet.

Well I am sure they helped close many Kmart and Sears at least. Stores like Walmarts are not going anywhere anytime soon. I am a big shopper on Amazon and IMO they are meh for clothes shopping usually so clothing stores are probably not effected by them specifically

KillZallthebeast303d ago

to be fair most k-marts I have been too are just awful experiences and usually not organized at all...and I worked at sear like 7 years ago the majority of their buisness is from the elderly and almost no young people.

What!? Those prices suck! Right now PS Store's Black Friday deals are awesome. Batman Arkham Knight: Premium Edition for $20 and here the base game is $40?! Mad Max is $8, Battlefront Deluxe Edition is $10 and so much more. At least for once digital sales are cheaper as they should be.
