[Update] Digital prices for PS4 games looking a bit steep
[Update] EA has revised their pricing in light of today's early revelation of the PS4's PlayStation Store prices although it's not that much of a drop. All of EA's PS4 launch titles will now be priced at 59.99 GBP on the PlayStation Store as opposed to the original price of 62.99 GBP.
The PS4's PlayStation Store has gone live ahead of the European launch on Friday but it still seems like buying games in shops or ordering online will still be cheaper than downloading the games directly.
EA take the prize for being the most mercenary by pricing all of their launch titles at 62.99 GBP which is well above the RRP of around 54.99 GBP for most next-gen games. Ubisoft are also trying their luck with Assassin's Creed IV, pricing it at 57.99 GBP. This is a full 9.99 GBP higher than it is currently priced on Amazon (48 GBP).
The full list is as follows along with each game's download size:
- Killzone Shadow Fall: 38.2GB – 52.99 GBP
- Call of Duty: Ghosts: 31.8GB – 54.99 GBP
- FIFA 14: 9.9GB – 62.99 GBP
- Battlefield 4: 36.4GB – 62.99 GBP
- Need for Speed Rivals 16GB – 62.99 GBP
- Knack 34.8GB – 52.99 GBP
- Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag: 21.7GB – 57.99 GBP
- Resogun: 460MB – 12.79 GBP (Free with PS Plus)
- LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: 6.4GB – 52.99 GBP
- NBA Live 14: 9.3GB – 62.99 GBP
- Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition: 21.7GB – 52.99 GBP
- Just Dance 2014: 22GB – 42.99 GBP
- Contrast: 2.3GB – 12.79 GBP (Free with PS Plus)
- Super Motherload: 393MB – 11.99 GBP
- Trine 2: Complete Story: 2.6GB – 14.49 GBP
- Putty Squad: 818MB – 13.99 GBP
- Madden NFL 25: 13.1GB – 62.99 GBP
- Angry Birds Star Wars: 1.5GB – 32.99 GBP
- Warframe 4.1GB – Free
There are a couple of titles missing from the list – Blacklight: Retribution and DC Universe Online - but both are free-to-play and will probably require additional downloads once the client has been installed.
Would you pay 62.99 GBP for one of EA's launch titles? I know I wouldn't and I really want Battlefield 4.
Thanks The Sixth Axis.
