Microsoft Starts Testing Digital Price Cut from Tomorrow with Ryse

Starting from tomorrow Microsoft will begin “testing” deals for digital versions of Xbox One games, starting with Crytek’s Ryse.

From tomorrow 18th February until 24th February, Ryse will be available for $39.99 on the US Xbox One games store, as opposed to the $59.99 it currently costs. With the UK pricing of £34.99 on the UK Xbox One games store, as opposed to the £49.99 it currently costs.


The news was announced on Twitter by Xbox studio manager Mike Ybarra (XboxQwik), who stated the temporary price drop was a response to player feedback.

“Lot of people asked for better deals on our digital marketplace,” Ybarra said, “So we’re testing some, and [from] 2/18 through 2/24 you can get Ryse: Son of Rome off digital marketplace for $39.99. Special deal on add ons starts 2/25.”

He added: “That’s far better than the used price at GameStop and others! Go digital!”

Last month Larry Hryb who is the Xbox Live director of programming Larry Hryb said that Microsoft plans to make the prices of its digital games more competitive in the future.

“We have some great stuff planned for Xbox One this year (and beyond),” he told a Reddit thread. “As soon as we can share some of the goodness, we will.”

Hryb was then asked if Microsoft’s plans included competitive pricing for digital downloads. His reply: “It is indeed on the agenda.”
