EA’s PS4 games will be £54.99 ($81)

European retailer GAME says that EA will be charging £54.99 for their PS4 games in the UK. This is news to a lot of folks as most games on current consoles in the region are £44.99. This appears to be limited to EA at the moment. GAME says:

At present, the only publisher to confirm costs of their next generation games are EA, attaching a price of £54.99

This £54.99 price converts to almost $81 US dollars. Hopefully this changes before the PS4 releases later this year. If EA is the only publisher doing this then perhaps it won’t be so bad. Sadly, I think they can get away with this price hike.

Some publishers tried something like this back at the beginning of this past generation there so hopefully this doesn’t last long.
