EA Reduces Price of Digital PS4 Titles to Match the Retail Price in UK
When the PlayStation 4 titles’ prices and sizes were revealed on the PlayStation Store Europe last week, it had caused a certain level of hue and cry because most of the games had been priced higher than the retail price rates.
The matter was taken up at the PlayStation Blog Recap post by gamers who raised their concerns, citing games like FIFA 14 and Battlefield 4 that had been priced at £62.99 instead of the retail price of £59.99. The Blog Manager responded by saying:
“I’m afraid I can’t comment on pricing of third party titles. All I can say is that the Store team make every effort to offer the best value possible.”
“I will raise concerns voiced in this thread with the Store team.”
Now, it looks like the concerns voiced at the thread have actually been heeded to as far as EA is concerned. Electronic Arts has covertly reduced the Price of Digital PS4 Titles on PlayStation Store.
Though PlayStation 4 has not yet been released in Europe, the games have now been brought down to the actual retail price levels. FIFA 14, Battlefield 4, NBA Live 14, Need for Speed: Rivals and Madden NFL 25 are now purchasable for £59.99 instead of £62.99.
What I am wondering right now is, how many of you would still be willing to pay £60 for a digital copy. Do let us know about your point of view in the comments section.
