UK games industry slams price cutting

The prosperity of the entire UK? trade has been placed in danger by the supermarket price cutting that has led to FIFA 10 and Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising going on sale for under £30.

Oh now you speak up, we didn't hear a word from you when they increased the cost of MW2, double standards are pathetic.

But there is a danger that if big names like fifa cut the price(since they barely change anything, just add a few bulletpoints for the back of the box) then others will have to and may not be able to recoup development costs, and bye bye quality games and new ips, hello rehashes and cheap wii style games.

Wait...Bethesda guy things the low price didn't help it to sell? Sorry but i seriously doubt hat FIFA would be the second fastest selling game every in the UK, if it had been sold for £40 everywhere

Low prices are good they will more likely sell more

Competition is good. We do not need state intervention.

Just goes to show that the cost price retails are buying in at is quite low which allows for them to retail at lower price. Probably making a quid per one sold, just goes to show that 29.99 can be done on PS3 and 360, just a shame big game retailers I.e Game take the ****.
