First-Party Xbox One games priced at £50 in the UK

XBOX-UK

We already know that Xbox One games will maintain the same $60 price standard set by the Xbox 360 in the US, but what about gamers across the pond?

Microsoft recently confirmed a similar trend in the UK, with games set to be priced at £50, with retailers likely discounting titles to as low as £40. At this rate it appears that Xbox One games will likely retain its same retail pricing in different regions as well.

However, until Microsoft officially reveals its complete game plan, it’s probably best not to assume. We’ll keep an eye on things as more information becomes available.

    Well im happy there gonna be £40 instead of £50

    • bizzy gie

      According to the picture, they’re going to retain the same £50 price tag.

      • TomDobo

        Thats how much 360 games are ment to be in the uk but they always sell it as 40

        • bizzy gie

          Well I believe it’ll still be 50 not 40.

          • TomDobo

            Cook story bro. You from uk ?

          • bizzy gie

            I’m going off the picture right in front of my face. Excuse me for being factual instead of using the price I want it to be.

          • TomDobo

            I understand were your coming from i just don’t think they will price it that high because grainger games never put their prices above £40. I’ve been reading up and its meant to have the same price as the current gen.

            I don’t know what euros convert to in U.S. dollars. 50 euros must not be $50 or $60.

          • sd

            What do euros have to do with this. This is in GBP (British pounds).

          • bizzy gie

            I didn’t feel like making the “£” symbol because it takes a long time on this device and I’m conversing with like 7 people currently so I don’t have time.

            It’s looks like a weird, backwards ‘E’. I just took a guess.

          • sd

            I wasnt on about symbol, you said ” don’t know what euros convert to in U.S. dollars. 50 euros must not be $50 or $60.”

            You are talking about euros. To represent the pound just put GBP after the number.

          • bizzy gie

            I know. I thought ‘£’ stood for euros because it looks like a weird ‘E’.

          • sd

            Euro is a c with 2 lines through the centre

          • bizzy gie

            Well I know that now.

          • Arthur Hughes

            Thanks for letting me know about this SD freaking hilarious. “Here in merica’ we do it this way must mean they do it the same way for euros in the UK with their funny squiggly line money.” lol

          • sd

            The thing is he carried the argument on. LOL.

          • Arthur Hughes

            I actual Laughed out Loud reading through this

          • sd

            I just reread this from the start. It is funny. This is the best example of someone just not listening. How many times do I repeat myself with the same things before he gets it. This for me sums him up and shows he cant listen and his level of intelligence. I think if he hadnt got the currency wrong he would still be arguing about the MSRP.

          • sd

            In the UK retailers almost always under price based on RRP. So some games will be 50, but most will be sold for around 40-42. RRP is not the selling price and retailers will stay below this to compete.

          • bizzy gie

            But the MSRP is 50 euros. Just what I thought.

            Games can be found on sale anywhere in the world, but the MSRP is 50 euros and that’s all I was discussing.

          • sd

            But no one else on this site are discussing Euros. They are discussing the selling price of games in the UK which is GBP. An RRP of 50 in the UK means the selling price will be less. This is not a sale price. The stores will sell games anywhere from 40 when they are released, nothing to do with sales. All the RRP in the UK means is that stores will not go above this price, they go below it. Have you ever lived in the UK? This is how the RRP works there. So people can easily say new games will be priced from 40, even the article agrees with me.

          • bizzy gie

            MSRP is an American based system.

            Here, the same rules apply. A retailer can go under, but not over.

            However, when a game is new, GameStop, Amazon, Best Buy, and every other retailer charges the MSRP of $60.

            After a few weeks have, then you begin to see sales.

          • sd

            But this is not what happens in the UK. They undercut the RRP from the start to compete in the vast majority of cases. Its a different country, different rules.

    I hope that game prices will drop, in sweden we pay 700kr for a new game which is equivalent to 100$. If this continues then I better start looking for a job soon :P

    • Jon

      That is crazy, games are $60 CAD here and that is actually equivalent to $110 which is almost double the price… is that like that for all the console games or just Xbox?

      • RECKLESSgoat

        All console games, pc games are 600kr( 80+ $), also… the psr4 here is gonna cost 4000 kr(613$) -.-

        • ImperialAgent

          Could you not import one maybe? I have no idea if it would end up any cheaper.

          • RECKLESSgoat

            I was actually thinking of doing that but with tthe high demand on the ps4 its so unlikely that ill get hold of one easily outside of sweden before the end of this year.

          • ImperialAgent

            maybe but for both consoles they’re basically deliberately giving amounts to retailers that will sell out because headlines like “ps4 sells out at gamestop” look good. More will be probably be available in places where they’re sold out. In the UK there haven’t really been shortages as far as I’ve seen. They must be sold out in some stores but they’re fairly available tbh. I just checked on amazon.co.uk you can get a day one xb1 from there and a ps4 (not sure if its guaranteed for day one or not.) If I understood it correctly delivery to sweden is £15 + £3.75 per kilogram. I’ll leave the maths to you. Not sure its much cheaper actually but maybe it would help you get one sooner if its tough finding one there. There seems to be quite a few here.

          • RECKLESSgoat

            Thanks man, if this works out then I really owe you one!

          • ImperialAgent

            No worries mate. Game.co.uk might be worth checking as well I preordered my ps4 there before recently switching it to xb1. (I want Killer Instinct and Titanfall!). Pretty sure they’ve got some consoles left there and they’ll get more if they have run out. It’s one of the main places in the uk but I’m not sure about deliveries abroad with them.

            If you don’t mind me asking what’s your name from? Is it a band or something? It’s cool if its some private thing just interested :)

          • RECKLESSgoat

            You mean RECKLESSgoat? if its that then my imagination just striked for a second to create this godly name lol xD

    • Arthur Hughes

      Have you looked at importing. Since the Xbox one is not region locked and if you get a few games at the same time you could probably save your self a nice chunk of change even after shipping

      • RECKLESSgoat

        yeah I will probably go for that. Its my only option to save money!
