Right now, when you buy a full price video game for your Xbox, you’re paying $59.99. That’s high, but it’s not extremely high. It’s reasonable, it’s what we’re pretty much used to, and it’s not much different from paying $50 for games for the 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System. With the price increases with every video game console’s next generation, surely the price of games will go up, right? Wrong. Microsoft Xbox One games will retail for $59.99.
Said a Microsoft spokesman, “I can confirm that Microsoft Studios games on Xbox One will be $59.99 (MSRP).”
For all the problems surrounding Xbox One and Microsoft’s policies concerning used games, game sharing, console sharing, and Internet connectivity, it’s nice to see that some things aren’t going to change for the worse. That’s a pretty good sign, if only for people like me who may still jump into the next generation of gaming consoles without waiting for the price drops 6 months to a year down the line.Technorati Tags: microsoft, microsoft game prices, microsoft xbox one, microsoft xbox one game prices, msrp, msrp for xbox one games, video game prices, video games, Xbox, xbox game prices, xbox one, xbox one game prices
