Xbox One first-party games RRP set at £50, same as Xbox 360

Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox One first-party games RRP will be a penny shy of £50, listing some of the upcoming titles on the Microsoft Store.

 Matching the current RRP for first-party Xbox 360 games, the Xbox One games will cost £49.99 when they are released.

Four Xbox One games are already listed on the Microsoft Store priced at £49.99, with consumers able to pre-order Kinect Sports Rivals, Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome and Forza Motorsport 5 from Microsoft directly.

EA has also confirmed that its Xbox One titles will be priced at an RRP of £54.99.

Anyone thinking these RRPs for Xbox One games is a bit steep will have been buying games from a retailer like Amazon or Game.

These retailers offer current generation console games at reduced prices. Of course, Xbox One and PS4 games will both undergo this price reduction process when they launch, meaning they will be much closer to the average £39.99 launch prices of Xbox 360 and PS3 games.

Despite only having RRP confirmation of Microsoft’s own published titles and those from EA, it hasn’t stopped British retailer listing a multitude of Xbox One games with accompanying prices.

Amazon UK currently has a whole host of Xbox One games available to pre-order, including Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag and Quantum Break. All of them are either priced at £50 or £54.99.

Game also has a very full range of Xbox One games available to pre-order. Those that are priced cost £54.99, but those without can be pre-ordered for £1 until the full price is confirmed at a later date.

Blockbuster has a few Xbox One titles to pre-order, all listed at £54.99 despite unknown release dates. Wolfenstein: The New Order is the only one to get the Microsoft matching £49.99 price tag.

Toys R Us only has Xbox One games available to pre-order at present. FIFA 14, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Destiny and Battlefield 4 are all priced at a rather specific £54.89.
