    What do you think of the current retail price for Xbox One games (90 dollars/pounds)

    According to Amazon.co.uk, the XBOX One's games will cost £90 (approx. 85-100 USD) for a brand new copy, though this price has yet to be determined as official or a working price. Do you think this is worth it for a game that you can't trade in, and might complete in less than a weekend? What else could you spend £90 on that would equal (or be greater than) the pleasure of an XOne game? Will this further alienate current and future gamers?

    As with all electronic games, they are all overpriced, and really only help turn the population into couch potatos, and probably help increase the cases of basal arthritis because of the constant working of the thumbs on the consoles.

    Damn, that's bloody awful! I remember when N64 carts were £50 and that was eye watering as a kid. I doubt they'll get away with £90 games for long.

    This is  is pretty high up there.  Comparing this to the 360/PS3, this is the currently the price for "Collector's Editions" of games available now. If this is truly  the new standard price for XBOX One games. I'm probably not going to get a game on release day anymore. Factor in the  trading/borrowing, used game situation and I may only get XBOX One for exclusives that really tickle my fancy. Probably be playing for "XBOX Live Arcade" releases or something.

    To all the possible launch day/early adopter XBOX one gamers out there. I really hope Microsoft gets the hardware design right on the first release (revision 0). I was one of the unlucky games hit with the Red Ring of Death.

    The image I added was taken around June 7th, 2013 on Amazon.com  Other games currently listed with the same pre-order price for Watchdogs and the upcoming  Madden American Football game.

    Considering the strange way they're handling used games, with the whole participating retailers/deactivation code thing. It all seems much more risky. Many of us have seen first-hand how bad the reveal itself, which confirmed some fears, threw out Microsoft's stock. The idea of making these close to 85 USD is certainly going to sway the gamer on a budget to buy the PS4/WiiU Many of the games already for the WiiU (which isn't saying too much, but serves as an example anyway) are between 40 and 60 USD The indie games on there (still not much, but you know...) are at most $20 USD, and Microsoft really hasn't given Indie devs much leeway with this system (xbox one), anyway. People already show their discontent with the console, so unless these games have an incredible selling point (and I mean more than hyper-realistic graphics) Then Microsoft won't see much attention from the gaming community. I hate to say this, but Microsoft should have just called it "Xbucks" because that's what people are going to need to enjoy this console. Cash, and lots of it. I think my decision will become final with this confirmation. If the games are confirmed to be priced this high, I have no doubt that I won't be purchasing an Xbox one.
