Xbox One First-Party Digital Game Prices Raised in the U.K.

Posted on December 11, 2013 AT 03:11am

Microsoft has upped the price of buying Forza 5, Ryse: Son of Rome, and Dead Rising 3 digitally on Xbox One.

The original price of each game was £44.99, but this price was increased yesterday to £49.99. Microsoft has since confirmed the price increase: “Yes, pricing for select digital content in some markets has changed since launch,”a spokesperson told CVG.

“Digital content pricing is subject to change and we may occasionally offer various deals or promotions. Ultimately pricing and promotions will vary by region.”

Sony was also widely criticized over their next-gen pricing decisions, and ultimately decided to lower their first-party prices ahead of the console’s launch last month. A digital console exclusive on PlayStation 4 will set you back £52.99.
