Overnight, Microsoft added Halo: Reach – the latest installment of the hit series – to the Games On Demand service.
Ordinarily, this would be a good thing. Having the ability to download games and have them stored on your hard drive for immediate access is often a blessing, and Reach is – as we said – a great game.
The kicker? Microsoft want £49.99 for it. That’s double what some online retailers are selling it at, albeit through third parties, and more than the boxed copy in most high street retailers.
I don’t know who thought that a penny under £50 was a fair price, but unless it drops considerably we’ll be sticking to playing Reach off a DVD.
You can buy it here.
