Xbox One raise price of downloaded games to £50
Prices of video games have been creeping up like nobody's business. Generally, when buying media, downloads are considerably cheaper, thanks to a lack of packaging and such. However, with games, it isn't so.
With that, Microsoft have confirmed that download versions of the exclusive titles Ryse, Forza Motorsport 5 and Dead Rising 3 will now cost £50, after initially saying downloaded games would be £45.
"Yes, pricing for select digital content in some markets has changed since launch," a Microsoft spokesperson said in a statement. "Digital content pricing is subject to change and we may occasionally offer various deals or promotions. Ultimately pricing and promotions will vary by region."
Third party games still vary, with Call of Duty Ghosts costing £55 to download on both Xbox One and PS4. FIFA 14 meanwhile is £60 on PS4 and £55 on Xbox One.
