Microsoft allay fears about next-gen game prices
Microsoft has allayed fears about the price of first party games on the Xbox One by confirming that any new games will retail for about $59.99 which is what games currently retail for.
Both Polygon and Kotaku had this confirmed to them by representatives of Microsoft, allaying fears that the prices of up to $90 could become standard. This does of course mean that third-party games could retail for more but seems to indicate that the higher prices currently online have just been placeholders.
Sony had already confirmed that they were looking at pricing games between, “$0.99 up to…$60.” Jack Tretton, CEO of SCEA, revealed this back in February so it looks like it will be a standard pricing across the board.
