Xbox One first-party games priced £50 in UK, Microsoft confirms

Microsoft's benchmark price for Xbox One games in the UK is £50 ($77), the same as Xbox 360 games and likewise matching the unchanged price point in the US. When asked about Microsoft Store prices for Xbox One games, a Microsoft spokesperson told Joystiq, "Microsoft first party games will cost £49.99, the same as Xbox 360 games currently."

That should translate into suggested retail prices of £50 across the board on most games, and likely the traditional retailer cuts to around the £40 mark. Sony has yet to announce anything on PS4 game pricing in the country, but Sony Computer Entertainment America boss Jack Tretton put the US upper limit at $60 in an interview shortly after the console's unveiling in February.
