Microsoft's Xbox One games will be priced at $60

EA won't be raising game prices next-gen either

Microsoft has confirmed that its first-party Xbox One games will retail for $59.99.


An unnamed spokesperson for the company told Kotaku that Microsoft's Xbox One titles will carry the same recommended retail price as Xbox 360 games have this generation.

SCE Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida told the site he knew the price point for Sony's PS4 games but wasn't yet willing to share it.

Activision, Ubisoft and EA spokespeople declined to comment on next-gen game pricing when approached by Kotaku.

However, during an E3 2013 analyst call last week, EA COO Peter Moore said he doesn't expect software prices to increase next-gen, noting: "You see a $60 price for a next-gen game whereas we believe [with digital downloads] we can get $70, $80, $90 from the consumer, but it's a $60 price point."

Last Monday, Microsoft confirmed that Xbox One will be available in 21 markets this November. The Xbox One price has been set at £425 / €499 / $499.

Sony showed off the PS4 hardware for the first time last Tuesday night during its E3 press conference. It confirmed a Christmas PS4 release date in Europe and the US and a PS4 price of £349 / €399 / $399,
