EA are going to raise the costs of gaming next generation, perhaps unsurprisingly, with the RRP of their titles jumping a fiver to £54.99. Others may follow.
The news comes via retailer GAME, who say that the publisher has confirmed costs of their next-gen games, “attaching a price of £54.99.”
“No other game prices have been confirmed,” says a FAQ on their site. “We will of course update our listings as and when this happens. And if the price changes before release day, you will always pay the lowest price.”
Hopefully deals will still float around on the high street, and it’s highly unlikely that online retailers will ever move towards selling at full RRP unless they have to.
