Microsoft Not Raising Game Prices on Xbox One

Worried that the next-gen titles we’ve all been drooling over will cost you an arm and a leg? Don’t start counting out your pennies just yet, because it turns out that our wallets won’t suffer much damage in the future of gaming.

According to Kotaku, a Microsoft spokesperson confirmed Xbox One games will retail for $59.99, which is what we pay now for new games for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U titles.

Of course, this only applies to first-party titles. Activision, EA, and Ubisoft aren’t talking about the price of games yet, but we hope they follow suit. When we adjust for inflation, $60 in 2006, which was the PlayStation 3′s launch year, is almost $70 today.

If third-party games were to rise to $70 for next-gen consoles, would you still buy them? Or would you stick with first-party titles? Let us know your thoughts and opinions on next-gen pricing in the comments below.
