The price of PSN downloads for PlayStation 4‘s big launch titles has been criticised by many since their reveal last week. EA discounted some of their titles a few days ago and Sony have now confirmed that the price of those and other games may be adjusted ahead of Friday’s launch.
EA’s PS4 games were originally listed at a staggering £62,99, later reduced to £59.99 – currently still five pounds more than the same games on Xbox One’s store.
“Although PS4 launches in Europe on the 29th November, we have switched on the European PSN early,” Sony told EuroGamer. “However, as PS4 and PSN have not yet officially launched in this region, nothing on the PSN is final, including pricing on the store. You will continue to see some prices adjusted over the next few days in preparation for launch on Friday.”
Good news all round, and those who’ve already pre-ordered need not worry either, as in those cases Sony have promised to refund the difference.
UPDATE: The price of EA titles has indeed been changed and is now in line with the price of digital purchases on Xbox One.
