According to Major Nelson we can expect more competitive pricing on digital downloads in the not so distant future. Is this just yet another empty promise that will be filed away on some Chief Executive's 'To Do' tray, or will we start to see some much needed changes from not just Microsoft but the games industry as a whole?
We were promised cheaper games when the next gen consoles were dreamed up , savings from not having to deal with high street retailers, packaging costs, etc would be passed onto us the gamers. The cold reality was actually a price hike on games such as Forza 5 , Dead Rising 3 and others by as much as Â£5 or $8.31
Lets just hope that 2014 turns out to be an amazing year as Microsoft keep reassuring us it will be, and not just a string that we are kept dangling on to prevent loyal Xbox Gamers defecting to the Sony side.
