Sony To Adjust PS4 PSN Game Prices In Europe


This week in Europe, Sony and third party publishers like Ubisoft and Electronic Arts were the subject of criticism when gamers discovered that the prices for digital game downloads from PlayStation Network were higher than their counterparts on the Xbox One store. Titles that were priced higher include FIFA 14, Assassin’s Creed 4 and Battlefield 4. Even when the games’ prices were reduced to £60 from the previous £63 price, they were still £5 more expensive than on the Xbox One store. Sony confirms to Eurogamer that it will adjust the prices prior to the PlayStation 4’s launch in Europe.

Sony says that in preparation for the PS4’s launch in Europe on Friday, prices will be adjusted over the next few days. Those who have already spent money by pre-ordering these titles will have the difference refunded once the price adjustments are final, the company says. Even though the PS4 doesn’t launch in Europe until November 29th, Sony has already switched on the European PSN to make sure that “features and functionality are fully operational for launch.” To ensure price parity between PSN and Xbox One store, titles such as FIFA 14, Battlefield 4, NBA Live 14, Need for Speed: Rivals, Assassin’s Creed and Madden NFL 25 should all be priced at £54.99.
