The Xbox One and Playstation 4 have been touting their differences since E3 in hopes of persuading future next gen customers to pick their console. With the many differences between the two consoles, and the flip flopping of DRM issues by Microsoft, it can make picking your next console a tough choice. Fortunately, Microsoft and Sony can agree on one thing, pricing for next gen games.
“I can confirm that Microsoft Studios games on Xbox One will be $59.99 (MSRP),” a Microsoft rep told Polygon.
Not to be out done, A Sony spokesperson told ShackNews, “… we have announced the pricing for our first party line-up of PS4 launch and launch-window games. All four titles – Killzone: Shadow Fall, Driveclub, Knack, and inFamous Second Son – are all $59.99.”
Across the pond in the UK, EA’s PlayStation 4 and Xbox One titles will be retailed at £54.99 – £5 more than the average current-gen retail price.
Confirmation of EA’s next-gen pricing was revealed in an FAQ with GAME, which states: “At present, the only publisher to confirm costs of their next generation games are EA, attaching a price of £54.99. No other game prices have been confirmed. We will of course update our listings as and when this happens. And if the price changes before release day, you will always pay the lowest price.”
It isn’t yet known whether next-gen titles will be sold for their full RRP at launch or carry a lower price tag, but online retailers are currently asking full whack.
