Microsoft Reveal Prices Of Xbox One Titles, And It’s Good News
With all the negative press Microsoft and the Xbox One have been receiving lately, it’s about time for them to start spitting out some good news don’t you think? Well, following concerns that next-gen titles might be priced astronomically, especially after some recent Amazon listings, Microsoft have revealed that their first-party titles will not change in price and stay at $60.
This means that next-gen titles will retail for the same price as new current-gen titles, meaning it’s unlikely that we’ll see a change locally. Of course, exchange rates could see the scales tip into the more expensive side of things, but at least it’s not due to Microsoft.

However, Microsoft were also quick to mention that this would only be certain for first-party titles published by them, as publishers for third-party titles could still choose to raise their price tags. Sony suggested a similar scenario, hinting in February that their titles would range from “$0.99 to $60”, but also noting that third-party publishers could bump up their prices.
But hey, considering a few days ago Amazon was accepting pre-orders for games going for $100, I say it’s a bit of relief to hear this. Because I really could not see myself throwing down a grand for one game. Could you?
