PS3 Game Prices Cheaper Than 360

Sony has announced pricing details for its first party title launch line-up, to accompany the 23rd March 2007 launch of PS3. Interestingly game pricse are a bit lower than most expected with launch titles such as Motorstorm and Resistance: Fall of Man getting a RRP of €59.99/£39.99. This is a nice chunk of the RRP for most 360 games which retail at a RRP of €69.99 in Europe and £49.99 in the UK.

In addition to the disc based games SCEE also announced that exclusive titles for download from the Playstation Network such as BlastFactor, flOw, Super Rub a Dub and Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection will be made available for an introductory period at prices which range from €2.99 to €9.99 depending on the specific title.

In a statement, David Reeves, President and CEO of SCEE said that “Not only will it be completely free to register on the PlayStation Network with no subscription fees and access to many free demos, but with these competitive prices for additional content we are able to offer the consumer both top quality games on Blu-ray discs and a whole range of downloadable content from the PlayStation Network. With over 30 first and third party disc and network games available at launch, we are confident that this will be one of the most successful launches of all time.
