Microsoft have defended the “relatively” high pricing of digital titles on its Xbox 360 Games on Demand service by claiming that customers are paying for the convenience of the service.
Some girls such as Super Street Fighter 4 and Bayonetta hold the reasonable price tag of £19.99 and £14.99 respectively, whilst Halo Reach was priced at £49.99 when it launched on the service earlier this week.
“No one retailer has the lowest pricing for every product, and our program is about giving people 24 x 7 convenience and selection when shopping for Xbox 360 games. We’re incredibly excited about what Games on Demand means for digital distribution, and will continue to evaluate and evolve the service to meet market and consumer demands,” says Microsoft.
Fortunately, we always have the sweet and moderately priced allure of second hand games as an alternative.
