UK Xbox One digital store prices

Quote:

Xbox LIVE Store prices

Crimson dragon - 15.99
Ki ultra - 31.99 - single character 3.99
Power star golf - 15.99
Zoo tycoon - 49.99
Loco cycle - 15.99
Zumba fitness - unavailable - 24gb
Assassins creed IV - 54.99
Angry Bird: Star Wars - 35.19
Madden - 54.99
Just Dance - 39.99
Fighter Within - 49.99
Battlefield 4 - 54.99
Need for Speed - 54.99
Dead Rising 3 - 44.99 - Day one Premium edition (with DLC) - 64.99
EA NBA - 54.99
COD Ghosts - Unknown (Listed as 9.99 due to digital version being bought already via Xbox 360)

So there we go. There doesn't seem to be much difference between Shop prices and Digital prices at the moment. Perhaps the most interesting part is that Powerstar Golf, Crimson Dragon and Loco Cycle are listed for 15.99.

Do these seem like fair prices to you?

At these prices its not going to make many people jump to digital only games

Not many at 35 a go.. especially when it's free on Google play.

I may go digital only one some games I would play long term, as at least then the Xbox would function more as originally intended. But others I will buy on disc for the trade in value.

I have never understood why they price digital games at disc retail prices, people are never going to convert. If they were at least 10 cheaper they'd have a fighting chance

Even Steam are hiking up their prices at the moment, probably cause they know they can get away with it. Arkham Origins was 40 at release for example... not a good trend.

Im also not happy about XB1 games hitting the 50 mark

Think yourself lucky Hammy it's €69 in shops on this side of the wet stuff and that is more than the exchange rate.

Those prices are about what I'd expect, to be honest. I'll tell you the reason they are priced similarly to instore prices:

If Microsoft prices them too much lower than their retail partners can feasibly sell the games for, then the stores will never sell a copy of any of those games. If that happens, then they will stop stocking the consoles, as there is no long-term profit or margin to be made from those customers/sales.

That might not seem a big deal in a time of mass internet shopping, but people dont always like the idea of putting 600 (console and games) on a truck, being sent round the country, only to be left with a neighbour on delivery, when they dont even know the neighbour. Or having to drive 25 miles out of town to a depot to pick said valuable item up.

Without the stores in a competitive position, they would sell less consoles. That smaller install base would make games less enticing to develop for them (why not just dev for x360 with its guaranteed install-base?)
