EA has caused controversy across the internet when it came to light that its digital version of retail games emerged to be more expensive on the PS4 than on the Xbox One, and we are not just talking a couple of pennies!
The titles under the spotlight include:
- FIFA 14
- Battlefield 4
- Need for Speed Rivals
- NBA Live 14
- Madden 25
Each of the titles, when the story originally broke, cost £62.99 on Sony’s digital store but cost only £54.99 on Microsoft’s digital store. That’s a huge £8.00 difference depending on which console you decided to purchase!
Although EA has addressed the pricing of its titles since complaints starting pouring in from across news outlets, community forums and social networks, it is still £5.00 more expensive to purchase a title on PS4 than it is on the Xbox One.
What do you make of EA’s pricing model? Is it fair that PS4 owners pay more as their console is cheaper? Let us know your thoughts, views and opinions over at our Facebook page!
