PS3 Games Less Than 360 Games in UK

Sony's finally come out with some good news for the UK: First party Playstation 3 titles will sell for EUR 59.99 / GBP 39.99 at launch, or GBP 10 less than Xbox 360 games, Games Industry reports.

The story is too old to be commented.

Firstly i think this is a strange announcement:

1, it states "at launch" - does that mean prices will go up after that?

2, Will cheaper games mean more sales? i think a cheaper console would have more effect

3, Surely third party games will have to follow and have £40 games - we all know that 1st party games are supposed to be the best games so would someone pay extra for a lesser game? £40 for Motorstorm, £50 for Sonic? We know that games sell at £50 rrp (look at 360 sales) so companies like EA, ubisoft will be losing alot of money when they know they could sell them 25% higher.

Overall good for gamers not good for developers

most places in the uk sell 360 games for 39.99

only gamestation & game charge £50

but the rrp is £50 so does that mean that PS3 games will be £30 - £35?

But the 360 has special offers now in UK, a Core for 150 Pounds if I'm right and a Premium, can't remember exactly how much, but it was freakin' cheap. You can pay a lot of times 10 pounds more on a game for the difference of the price of a 360 and a PS3...

if they did this in american then it would be news

N4G is an international gaming news community. Even if it wasnt this is still important news as the launch in Europe directly affects everyone with a PS3..

But that's a typical attitude comming from a yank.


first party 360 titles are 39.99 GPB in the UK, the same as the PS3 - prices for third party titles are 50 GPB for the 360, and are yet to be announced for the PS3 so this article is pointless
