    Rumor: EA Pricing Games Higher Than Other Publishers?

    mazon.fr - PS4/Xbone game prices around the same as this gen's - except for EA (75€)UPDATE:
    on Amazon.es, EA games are also 70€

    http://www.amazon.fr/s/ref=sr_pg_2?r...qid=1370786304

    Prices for Xbox One and PS4 games at 69€ - same as this gen. I guess that suggests prices won't increase next-gen or else Amazon would lose a lot of money because of their Best-Price guarantee.

    Only outsider is EA with 74,99€ for next gen console's versions of BF4 and Fifa 14

    Note, that when I checked Amazon.fr last week they had placeholder prices (99€).



    http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=580869

    So there isn't a lot of worth to this because it is based on retail listing prices. Amazon.fr has changed the prices of their next gen titles from their places holders to the same as the current gen in euros. Only difference is EA games are priced at 5 Euros higher. Like I said this is based on listing prices so get some salt. IIRC this same thing happened at last launch with certain games. I don't know that for sure so maybe someone can confirm or deny that.

    E.A games it's in the small print... I really hope so and no game is above 35.00 pounds, because they can say bye bye to me and i would never folk out more than 35.00 pounds for a game

    Most games at launch are between £37 and £40 currently so they aren't going to reduce it to below that.
    I can read your thoughts.

    One silver lining to this is that the prices are the same as this generation. I don't know why they would change the place holders without some sort of information.

    Just saw this at GAF, EA always charge £5-10 more
    PS3 games at launch was ranged £34.99(online),£39.99/£44.99 with EA games being £49.99
    So this is expected
    What's disappointing is during the PSone era games dropped to £29.99 in the later half of the generation with FFIX being the exception releasing at full £39.99
    And yes I remember that day in Game collecting my pre-order for FFIX and being told £39.99 after paying £29.99 for New releases for over a year, some $#@! about it being 4 discs.

    OK thanks for the info. I figured the pricing model was pretty much the same as it is here. $50-60 is the uniform pricing. But I want to say EA games were 65 at launch.

    Also remember the RRP price is actually that on current games too, even EA games still have that RRP, retailers just sell them for less now.

    Gamers better stop buying their $#@!ty games. "Pay $60 now and you can only enjoy half the game, the rest is going to be released on the same day you bought the game"

    I believe this rumor was already dismissed by EA themselves, someone posted something about next gen EA games being sold for $69.99 and I could swear I read something about a EA rep saying that was a mistake.

    There were placeholder prices at 99 euros. These could easily be placeholders. But don't know why they would change them without some kind of info or at least rumor. Definitely meant to be taken with a grain if salt though.

    My last EA games was Battlefield 3. Haven't bought anything else since then. I even avoid Dead Space 3, which is one of my favorite franchise.
