While Microsoft has had its fair share of bad press surrounding the Xbox One console, those still considering a purchase when it is released later this year will at least be happy that the price of new games will remain in line with Xbox 360 retail disc pricing. Games will retail for $59.99, according to an unnamed source speaking to Kotaku.
This news is in line with what EA COO Peter Moore said last week during an E3 analysts call. He said that he expected pricing to be in line with what we are seeing now with Xbox 360 games. Third-party publishers have remained silent on the matter for the time being.
Pricing on retail game discs for the PlayStation 4 still remain a mystery. Sony has decided not to reveal the exact price point games will sell for. SCE Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida told the Kotaku he knew the price point for Sony's PS4 games but wasn't yet willing to share it.
