First Party Xbox One Games Priced at £50

Microsoft's started trying to tempt gamers into pre-ordering the Xbox One launch games, with a handful of the new console's games now available to bagsie on the Microsoft Store. The bad news is a £49.99 RRP for the likes of Forza 5 and Kinect Sports Rivals.

While that may seem a little high, it's actually pretty much in line with the prices charged for current Xbox 360 titles when bought direct from MS -- we just never buy games for that price. Once they trickle down to the other retailers, they're bound to appear for nearer the £40 mark or less. So it's actually pretty good news and seems to indicate there won't be much of a next-gen price premium.

Let's just hope the digital versions attract some sort of discount. [MS Store via OXM]
