@hardwenzen: I am confused, haven’t you defended Sonys price increase with higher price equals higher quality?? Based on that shouldn’t the console version by default be better??

$70=quality. End of the story.

You mean quality that you won't buy. 😂

Its not my fault they lowered the price for the inferior pc version, the version i am buying

According to what the online discourse has been so far, a significant portion of console gamers demand at least $70 and anything less just isn't worth it.

I guess MS didn’t want to be a hero and charge 60, but instead copied Sony .

Does MS set the price of EA games?

$60 on PC is still $25 too much.

People still delusional they aren't jacking prices for any other reason than "we can"?

Mean, it's EA. Their own lawyer couldn't keep a straight face explaining how selling phycological drugs to kiddies was just like a kinder egg.

And here's Gamespot, the self-appointed moral police, Trump bad, misojimmyiz bahd, studios bahd, game fat-shaming. Game sexist. Game colonismismzms!

But we'll act as their PR. We like the monies.

@hardwenzen: But, then I'd have to play it on a PC. Ugh - who wants to do that...

Difference?

My PC is set up for work, not gaming. I bought a console so I wouldn't have to worry about keeping my laptop up to date for gaming.

And the only way you get that GPU is line up for a day behind a long line of bitcoin miners trying to cash in

Just like I said, it's only a matter of time before $70 is the new metric across the board. If games prove to sell well at that price then others will follow.

Ok so let all the scalpers and miners buy up the GPUs then, how does this affect PC gamers who can just run games on their old hardware instead?

Do you have to have the newest of the newest hardware all the time simply to run your games?

The lower price is to compensate for the cheater infestation.

I lol'd. I can't even argue with this as a cod player on PC. When I see a PC icon online, I always brace myself.

Please don't complain bro, PC gamers are paying 3K for a new GPU. Makes next gen games look like peanuts.

Not if you bought last year, 1660 super for $200 still kicking a PS5's ass up and down.

Well, EA is certainly a greedy company... We've seen that before.

Reminds me when Activision set the $60 mark on PC with MW2. The "console" tax.

The game is going to be on Gamepass less than a year after launch, anyway.

I know publishers decide the prices but.......

You've answered your own question.

Microsoft is not responsible for the decision of publishers. Just like Microsoft is not responsible for publishers choosing to not support Smart Delivery, because they want to milk you more.
