Ubisoft On Cost Of Next-Gen Consoles: "The Price Is Right"
What do you think about the prices for the next-generation systems? Seem about right?
Ubisoft thinks they're great deals. The publisher's CEO, Yves Guillemot, told GamesIndustry Interational that both options are worthwhile, considering the impressive power behind the new machines:
"For the hardware they're putting on the market, the price is right. They are offering machines that will be exceptional, and for those prices, they're good deals."
Guillemot also praised Microsoft for going back on their used game and "24-hour check-in" policies. He said consumers didn't like that approach, so Microsoft listened and made the appropriate change. As for the prices, Sony's PlayStation 4 is set to debut at $400 while the Xbox One will launch with a $500 price tag. The latter console comes with Kinect, though, and both companies will be charging for online multiplayer this time around.
However, it is widely believed that the PS4 currently offers more for $400. Let's also not forget the several developers who have come forward and said Sony's console is as much as 50% more powerful than the Xbox One...
