Following the announcement at this years E3 that Microsoft will be dropping their Microsoft Points system in favour of actual currency, claims have surfaced over on Reddit that digital content prices will rise the Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
EuroGamer have confirmed this information to be true with their own testing new system through the beta dashboard and have made a list breakdown of how much the change over will cost you the consumer:
1600MSP games are now £14.99; previously this was the equivalent of £13.60
1200 MSP games are now £11.99, previously £10.20
800 MSP games are now £8.99, an even bigger increase – previously this was £6.80
400 MSP games are now £4.49, previously £3.20
The prices are now in line with those on PSN, suggesting that Sony’s marketplace has been more expensive all along.
Microsoft have yet to comment.
