Some good news, sports fans! And indeed all fans. Microsoft have announced that they won't be slapping a price hike on their games for next-gen, stating that first-party games for the Xbox One will be priced at $59.99 or other regional equivalents.
Sony are yet to commit to a price point for their titles, but SCEA boss Jack Tretton said back in February that games priced on the PS4 could be scaled from 99¢ to $60, implying that Sony will be sticking with the status quo for nor now, too.
UK retailers haven't yet settled into a rhythm for upcoming titles on next-gen platforms, though most of the pre-order materials are falling into the £40-50 band (remember our prices include VAT). It's easy to forget that a relatively competitive market has forced the sale price of most games down from an RRP of £49.99 to £39.99. The likes of EA and Ubisoft have been creeping up over the £40 mark for some time now, and we'd expect that to continue.
