    Microsoft Have raised digital prices of Xbox One Exclusive titles: Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son Of Rome and Forza 5.

    There has been some backlash over the pricing of Digital titles on both of the Next-gen consoles, Xbox One and PS4. The theory is that since there is no actual disc, packing , postage and other overheads that a physical game has, that the prices should be lower.

    Sony responded by axing the prices of digital games, such as EA titles that were originally priced at extortionate £62.99.
    Microsoft however have reacted by actually raising the prices of their exclusive digital titles, Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome and Forza 5.
    These titles were previously available for £44.99 on the Xbox store but have now been raised to £49.99.

    Personally i will continue to buy physical discs so that when I am done with them I can trade them in and get something different instead. It will also save me from filling up my 500GB HDD of which only 326GB is available for downloads, which equates to 20 games.
