It’s no secret that some games on Xbox Live are ludicrously priced compared to their standard retail counterparts. While it can be seen with PS4 titles as well, the main issue is that the era of digital games was to make for cheaper games since manufacturing and distribution costs are cut out.

Responding to a complaint on Reddit about TitanFall’s pre-order incentive – where you get $10 Xbox Live credit for ordering the game (instead of, say, just pricing it for $10 less) – director of programming for Xbox Live Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb responded that, “We are way aware of this and many of the concerns of the community – we have some great stuff planned for Xbox One this year (and beyond.) As soon as we can share some of the goodness…we will.”

He also talked about competitive pricing on Xbox Live and stated that “It is indeed on the agenda” for Microsoft.
