Microsoft are planning better deals on the digital version of games first up is Ryse which will see a price drop. This is great news I will start purchasing digital games if the are cheaper than hard copies
£29.99 is a damn good price for that game. I was completely unsure of getting this game at launch because of the short single player, I am not into multiplayer anymore really. Having now bought/played it I would have got it for the full retail.
As much as i would like to say that is a good thing. Which it is. Many of us predicted Ryse would be the first to see a price drop.
Also it's (according to the link) £34.99 in the UK. But i can get it for £25 + P&P from Amazon. Or £31.99 new.
Also according to the tweets. It is only from 18th to 24th Feb - A 6 day deal. To get you to buy something you can pick up cheaper physically. Yes it may be better than Gamestop. But it seems the US gets shafted for their games when it comes to price drops.
You can even go into some stores here, Supermarkets and find it for £25 to £30. Prices need to be dropped at launch. Not almost 3 months after launch and only for 6 days, it needs to be permanent.
Agree with what you are saying but hopefully this is the first of many. I think that the price drops should be on new games as well because at this moment of time no way should they be the same price or more in some cases than an actual hard copy of a game.
