PS4/Xbox One edition = 54.99
This is just a placeholder, right?

Thats the RRP for Next gen games now. Was confirmed for Microsoft earlier. However don't fear. I think that 55 is the RRP for games for PS3 and 360 but no retailer sells at RRP.

Sony have stated that 1st party games will remain at 39.99 on PS4, which is ok.
3rd parties should be the same as 1st party games or maybe slightly less. :/

Why the heck are games so cheap in the UK?!
They cost 60 Euro over here, sometimes even more D:

Well GAME said about EA's pricing a while ago


At present, the only publisher to confirm costs of their next generation games are EA, attaching a price of 54.99. No other game prices have been confirmed. 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.

Sorry to say, it doesn't work that way..


Prices can also vary by retailers - so I suggest people shop around.

Well amazon always has a pre order price guarantee.....so if you pre order the $60 version on the US site..thats the most you will pay..you pay the lowest price the game gets before its release

What is secret shop?


Either way I'll be buying the game for ps3. so it's either a $65 (tax included) or $129 (tax not included) drop for me depending on which edition I decide to buy.

That was also another thing I was thinking about. I bought AC3 for $34 on black friday from Bestbuy. I'm sure the same sale will go for black flag. soo.. we will see. Depends on what I want to do really. Ugghh..

Pretty sure it's a placeholder, I remember seeing an article saying that the price will remain the same for next-gen. Even if it isn't a placeholder, places like Shopto and GreenmanGaming usually sell games fairly cheap (or as cheap as there going to get).

That $80 price is injustifiable... The money somone uses for shipping, tax, and a season pass can instead be used to buy lots of other stuff. Ex: 5x new AC games at around $20, bills/taxes, internet, etc.

Supporting the devs is something we should aspire to do but $80....yeah that's wrong dude.

GMG is PC digital sale thingyyy... and PC games are usually cheaper than console games cause its an open platform.. so yeah cant compare pc and console prices

At least the price of The black cheat edition on Uplay is the same for PS4 as it is for the PS3, so thank you Ubisoft for that.
Anyway even if they're not place holders hopefully the price will drop back down to 39 soon after launch

That is crazy...now i understand why foreigners are so willing to pay $15 to $20 usd S&H to order from my online game shop...
That being said..anyone outside of the states..pick any game and ill get it to you $10 cheaper than your country sells it...

Sorry, I haven't used GMG, I didn't know they were only PC download. I'd just heard they were fairly cheap. But my point still stands about shopto.net.
It wasn't my intention to end up comparing PC and console game prices, as it's fairly obvious that PC games are cheaper.
