Microsoft has confirmed that first-party Xbox One games will carry a suggested retail price of $59.99.
That essentially means that the price of Microsoft published games will remain the same as we move into the next generation.
What it doesn’t clarify, however, is the approach third-party publishers like EA, Ubisoft and Activision will take.
All three companies have been approached to reveal their pricing for next-gen games, but have yet to make any public comment.
However, with Microsoft leading the way, let’s hope everyone else follows.
The retail price of the Xbox One was announced last week during E3 2013. The console launches in November and will cost $499 in North America, €499 in Europe, and £429 in the UK.
Despite consumer concerns about the Xbox One costing around $100/£80 more than the PS4, Microsoft “couldn’t be happier” with the price point.
