This time though, it doesn’t seem to be Bethesda’s fault.
Fallout 76 has been a bit of a blundering mess all around, and things like what I am about to tell you don’t help the game’s perception. On Amazon UK, Atoms are 250% more expensive for the PS4 version relative to the Xbox One version, The Sixth Axis reports. This means that to buy the same amount of Atoms, you spend two and a half times more money on PS4 than you do on Xbox One.
This is odd, and made even more troubling by the fact that Atoms are in game currency used to buy cosmetics and the like. The interesting thing is that Amazon UK have responded to The Sixth Axis in a statement saying that this is not a pricing error, and is based on “agreements with content providers”—which would suggest Bethesda is behind this. Every other retailer in the UK, however, seems to have the PS4 version prices to be the same as the Xbox One version, which suggests it’s Amazon at fault here.
Whatever the issue, hopefully it is fixed soon. The game hardly needs any more bad press right now.
