Titanfall for Xbox One Priced 10 Euros Above Xbox 360 Version on European Origin Store and Other Oddities
Next generation pricing already looks quite messy, but with Titanfall it’s even a bit messier than the usual, with Origin offering the game at a different price point between the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One versions of the game, at least in Europe.
While the the North American Origin store lists all versions of the game for $59,99 (which is an oddity in itself, at least for the PC version, that normally costs less), Electronic Arts saw fit to charge 10 Euros more to European customers wanting to enjoy the game on the upcoming next generation console by Microsoft than to those preorderding the Xbox 360 version (or 10 Euros less to those playing on 360, depending on the point of view).
In fact the Xbox 360 version of the game is priced at €59.90, while the Xbox One version will grab €69.90 away from our wallets. European PC gamers are luckier, as they will have to spend only €49.90, adding further confusion to the fact that in the North American store the PC version costs exactly the same as the others.
The reason for the discrepancy is unknown, but it sure is an oddity, especially considering that the two console versions on the North American store and on other European retailers cost exactly the same.
