Bethesda's upcoming Elder Scrolls expansion pack on the 360, available only by download, will be double the cost of existing Xbox Live titles.
The Shivering Isles will set you back 2,400 Microsoft points, or about £19.35 for those of us still using real money. Previously the most you could pay was 1,200 points for the likes of Bankshot Billiards and Lumines Live.
SPOnG's not complaining, however. Bethesda's promising 30 hours of gameplay in the expansion. Further to that the PC version (which will sell through high street retailers) is going on sale for £19.99. Bethesda isn't ripping you off, here. This could mark the beginning of a worrying trend for retailers, however.
This is the first time a game of this size has been offered through Xbox Live. SPOnG asked a contact in retail how they felt about it. "That is quite worrying, if it's the start of a trend," SPOnG was told. "As this is the first of it's kind I'm not too worried in this case. And I do think that people like to physically have something, like with CDs. But if more developers do this it could be a problem."
